Product Details

Lavolta RGB 300 SMD5050 LED 16 ft. Tape Lighting Strip 12 VDC Waterproof IP65 for Standalone or Add-On Strip to Lavolta KIT-1

RGB LED tape strips are built with 3 bright surface mount RGB LEDs per every 2" for the best possible color density. These Lavolta LED strips are great for use as indoor strip lighting or illuminating a display case. Connecting multiple strips together is made quick and simple with solder tabs on the end of each strip. Aggressive adhesive is affixed to the back of the strip for permanent mounting. 10 miniature flexible mounting brackets with 20 mounting screws are included for additional support.

Each Lavolta LED strip is marked with cut lines for creating a custom length strip, or up to 98 miniature 2" strip segments with three RGB LEDs per section. Each section features four solder points (voltage +, green, red, and blue) to create one of seven different colors and for easy daisy-chaining.

To facilitate ease of use, voltage dropping resistors are built-in. Simply connect a 12 VDC power supply (up to a 12 VDC, 6A power supply is recommended and sold separately) to the solder points (see wiring diagram in Manuals/Resources section on the right) and go! Additionally, you can use either the 24 or 44-key remote control LED control unit for color control or to create amazing effects. Pre-terminated with a 5" pigtail for connection to an LED control unit (sold separately). CE and RoHS compliant, IP65 rated (no ingress of dust; complete protection against contact. Water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm) against enclosure from any direction shall cause no harm.)

Power supply sold separately, please refer to the Related Items section.

Note: Prior to attaching the LED strip to a surface, it is recommended that you clean the surface with alcohol and dry with a lint-free cloth. In order to connect the LED lighting strip correctly to a 24 or 44-key controller, align the black wire with the controller connector's arrow. The strip will only work in one direction, and you cannot harm the strip by connecting it backwards. Due to the IR operation of this product, it is possible for remote controls of other devices to inadvertently change LED settings. Connecting more than two 16 ft. strips together is not recommended. For runs longer than 32 ft., it is recommended that each strip be wired directly to the power supply.

Strip Specifications: • Minimum power requirements (per strip): 12 VDC, 2A • Overall dimensions: 0.44" W x 196.80" L x 0.125" H (11 x 5000 x 3.2 mm) • Segment dimensions (98 segments per strip): 2" (50.8 mm) L.

RGB LED Specifications: • LED type: SMD 5050 • Red: 624 nm wavelength, 18 lumens • Green: 518 nm wavelength, 45 lumens • Blue: 471 nm wavelength, 18 lumens.

Lavolta RGB 300 SMD5050 LED 16 ft. Tape Lighting Strip 12 VDC Waterproof IP65 for Standalone or Add-On Strip to Lavolta KIT-1
Lavolta RGB 300 SMD5050 LED 16 ft. Tape Lighting Strip 12 VDC Waterproof IP65 for Standalone or Add-On Strip to Lavolta KIT-1 is rated 4.4167 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LED lights are perfect!So far one of the brightest, and cleanest looking LED's I've purchased from anywhere, for such an affordable price. Very happybwith this purchase

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good light strip for the moneyThe light strip itself is a good product, The self adhesive tape on the back has a lot to be desired though. It doesn't stick to wood almost at all. The only other thing I could say about is when you cut it and want to extend the strip the spots where you solder other wire onto is very small and can be difficult to solder and not have them touch other pins. Overall though the leds were a great purchase and I would buy them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great..... But be warnedI bought this extra strip to extend the Lavolta packaged lights. I found out that the white and yellow hues are not the same as the Lavolta strips. It quite noticeable when connected within the same space. My solution was to get another package set and use the extra controller for the independent strip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PerfectBrighter than I thought - which is a good thing. Easy to cut and add leads to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flexible and quite bright.These RGB LEDs are quite the buy! The price on LEDs has come to a point that they are competitive with incandescent or florescent for ambient lighting and being able to pick a color to fit your mood is a nice feature. Although these are not as easy to dial in a color as my 1st gen Philips LivingColors, they were a fraction of the cost.Cons: The plug that connects the remote module to the strip will not stay connected without being taped and I get a flickering out of the green LEDs. Not sure if it's the controller or the strip itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LED MagicI love this product. I just keep coming up with ways to use it. I have attached a video of my truck bed. Pictures of my house and in my office. on the house I change the colors for different holidays and when not in uses, for the holidays, I turn it white for security lighting. Next project is to install it on my boat.

In order for this to work, you will need a power supply and controller which you can see below.http://www.parts-express.com/12-vdc-3a-ac-power-adapter-with-21-x-55mm-plug--320-312http://www.parts-express.com/44-key-led-control-unit-with-ir-remote-control--073-004

hi, can I connect and power a RGB led strip using a 16-Gauge Speaker Wire that has only 2 wires ?

Asked by: gr5252
In order to use all three colors, you will need four conductors of wire. You can use 2 conductor 16 gauge cable, but it will have to be doubled up.

I have a home project that I will need 80 ft. of leds. If I purchase the Lavota Kit 1 and 4 rolls of the led strips that I will be connecting together. Will I need to purchase anything else or I the 5 items will be enough for me to complete my project ?

Asked by: Notsohandy
In order to control 80 feet of LEDs you will need a high current power supply and two of the high powered LED controllers. Part numbers 073-005 and 320-3149 will work fine for this application.

Can these lights be installed on the bottom of a car, to be used as neon lights..

Asked by: Kishon
Yes they can. They are IP65 rated and completely waterproof, though you must ensure that your power connections are waterproof as well.
