What sizes do strip lights come in?
LED strip lighting comes with either small LED chips or larger LED chips, as well as a variety of sizes ranging from 1 metre to 5 metres. Small LED strip light chips are marked “3528” and measure 3.5mm x 2.8mm, while large LED strip light chips are marked “5050” and measure 5mm x 5mm.
How many feet of LED strips can you connect together?
This is no different with LED strips. Vetco recommends, as a general rule, not to connect more than three complete strips end-to-end without adding in extra, higher gauge power wire or additional power supply units down the line.
HOW LONG CAN LED strip lights stay on?
LEDs have an unbelievably long expected life-span, compared to both incandescent and fluorescent lights. With an average life-expectancy of some 50,000 hours, LED strip lights will still be burning bright in 17 years’ time, long after their traditional counterparts will have expired.
