How to Determine the Best LED Strip Lights
LED light strips and ribbons are some of the popular LED products that are available to consumers. They did not just replace incandescent ribbons but also some fluorescent tubes also. These products have created a lot of options for decorating and advertising in public places. The technology around LED lights is still evolving but the lights have gotten very bright and have a long life, they are great for ascent lights and have even been able to be used as a main lighting source. They are popular in home use and commercial use, in this article we put together some of the characteristics of these strip lights that consumers will want to consider.
There are a number of features that a consumer will need to look at when making their decision. The consumer will need to decide the size and type of the LED as well as the color, flexibility, number and direction of the strip that they will want. Size and type is the most important feature, this will determine the performance and brightness of the light strip. The newer the technology and the bigger the size of the LEDs the brighter the strip lights will be.
A second key factor in the performance and brightness of the strip will be how many LEDs are on the strip. In order to get a very high number of lights on a single strip the LEDs will need to be placed in different rows instead of in a straight line. With these it is important that you check the strip to make sure the lights are not too close, if they are placed close to each other it could shorten the life of the strip.
LED lights use RGB techniques when it comes to light which means that the range of color is pretty much endless. With these lights you can even get three different shades of white, you can get a bright white, a warm white and a natural white. Single color LED lights are available in pretty much any color but if you have an RGB light strip you will be able to produce any color you desire. These strips will need a controller to get the color that you want, this controller will allow you to change the color and also set up special modes if you want the lights to change throughout the night.
The flexibility of your strip will be a factor that will determine the application of the strip. Rigid strips might be best for replacing tube lights but a flexible strip can do anything. The flat surface of a wall or ceiling might call for a rigid strip but when it comes to angles you will want something flexible.
