I get asked a lot "what LEDs do you use so I can add some to my box". I source the highest quality, brightest LEDs unavailable on Amazon or eBay. See descriptions below. all rolls are 5m long
CHASE or ADDRESSABLE (multicolor patterns at the same time)
Strips like I use can be found on amazon for about $10 cheaper, but they are a lower quality strip. I have gone through extensive testing and different manufactures to settle on the product I offer and it is superior.
These are a 5v led strip and require a 12v to 5v step down converter. I sell one rated for 3A, if you need a larger step down you can grab one from amazon by clicking here. A 5m long strip can draw up to 10A so do your math and make sure to size your power source appropriately.
5v addressable LED suffer from one flaw, they can loose color shade over longer strips. I include instructions on "power injection" which is a simple way to add power to both ends of the strip to bring the color back if this should occur. A 2-3m strip may need power added to the end of the strip. A 5m strip will need power added to both ends of the strip. See photos for examples. 5m strips come with power injection wires pre soldered to both ends.
5 meter, 60led/M, white PCB, IP20 (no silicon coating), adhesive backed
RGB (color change but one color at a time, no patterns)
These strips are IMPRESSIVLY bright! So much brighter than what you'll find on Amazon or ebay. Once you pick these up you can immediately feel the difference in the weight of the thicker PCB. These are worth every penny! 300led/5m
Single Color 12v 8mm wide
These ARE NOT ebay strips! These have a MUCH thicker PCB strip to produce better solder joints and to handle the current better.
These are the brightest, longest lasting bulbs on the market currently. The 2835 strips are brighter and more efficient than the outgoing 3828. These are IP20 meaning no silicone coating- however, I have dunked them into a bottle of water and they work just fine so I'm going to call them water-resistant. 600LED/5m
