Product Details

RGB 150 LED SMD 5050 5m (16 ft.) Tape Lighting Strip 12 VDC Waterproof IP65

RGB LED tape strips are built with 3 bright surface mount RGB LEDs per every 4" for great color density. These strips are great for use as indoor strip lighting or illuminating a display case. Aggressive adhesive is affixed to the back of the strip for permanent mounting.

Each strip is marked with cut lines for creating a custom length strip, or up to 49 miniature 4" 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. Each strip is pre-terminated with a 4" pigtail for connection to an LED control unit (sold separately). CE and RoHS compliant, IP65 rated to prevent dust ingress and short periods of immersion in water.

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.

RGB 150 LED SMD 5050 5m (16 ft.) Tape Lighting Strip 12 VDC Waterproof IP65
RGB 150 LED SMD 5050 5m (16 ft.) Tape Lighting Strip 12 VDC Waterproof IP65 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from only on bad thing!These light are amazing! I am so surprized at how bright they are. I was going to order the ones with more lights in them but im happy I did'nt because they would have been too bright for what I used them for. Now for the one BAD thing, The double sided tape on the strip did not stick well at all. I tried to stick it to newly painted plywood (and yes it was dry) it seem to stick great but all of it fell after about 30 min. I had to use some clips i got from good old home depot but all in all it is still worth it! the good out weighs the bad ten fold!
