Q:Can the LED strips be cut or trimmed?
A:Yes! You can easily cut the LED strips. Use a sharp utility knife. The LEDs are wired in groups of 3, so you should cut between sets of 3 LEDs.
Note: Some of the shorter lengths can’t be cut because of a critical power wire inside. Before you cut, just make sure you won’t be cutting a power wire, otherwise your LED strip could be damaged.
Q: Can the cut section of the strip be re-used?
A: While it is physically possible, it is not a simple procedure and not worth the effort. For practical purposes, you are better off discarding the cut portion.
Q: Once cut, is the strip still waterproof?
A: If you cut it right, it will maintain a degree of "weather resistance". But to make a cut strip fully waterproof again, we recommend you add some silicone sealant to the cut end.
Q: What is the best way to mount them?
A: Cable ties, also known as zip ties work for many installations. We also include a surprisingly strong 3M double sided adhesive mounting tape.
Q: How should they be mounted in the wheel well?
A: Before removing the wheel, you should hold the strip in a few locations behind the wheel until you find a suitable location. Play around with some different options. We find it works best if they are mounted on or behind suspension components.
Q: Do the LED strips require resistors?
A: No. The LED strips do not require any resistors. They are ready to work on any 12 volt power source.
Q: Which wire is power and which is ground?
A: The silver wire is 12v +, and the gold wire is 12v - (ground). If you accidentally reverse them, nothing bad will happen.
Q: Are LED lights waterproof?
A: We can make waterproof and non waterproof ones, waterproof or water resistant led strips, making them ideal sources for interior and exterior lighting of water intensive areas.
Q: Do LEDs work with dimmer switches?
A: LED lights can function just as any other light does, including dimmability. Almost all the led strips can be dimmed by Dimmers.
Q: Can LED lights be used outdoors?
A: Just as LED lights provide energy-efficient, attractive indoor lighting, there are several LED outdoor lighting solutions that perform in the harshest weather.
Q: What is “watts”?
A: A watt is the unit of measurement for the amount of electricity a light fixture uses. When you’re talking about incandescent light bulbs, this term is commonly also used to express brightness, even though watts don’t tell you anything about how bright a light is. “Lumens” is the measure of brightness. With our LED lights, the wattage always means simply how much power is used. A typical 40W light bulb draws 40 watts of power and gives off about 300 lumens of brightness, while an LED bulb of 300 lumens might use about 6 watts.
Q: What is “voltage drop”?
A: “Voltage drop” means the gradual diminishing of voltage along the length of the wire as electricity travels away from a power source. The term applies to what happens when a light or appliance is at a great distance from the power source.
Q: Do you have wiring diagrams for your LED lights?
A: Yes. Click here to see, download, and print wiring diagrams for our most popular LED light fixtures. These simple schematics tell you how to wire under cabinet lighting by connecting LED light bars and tubes to plug-in adapters or hard-wired drivers; waterproof and non-waterproof light strips to a 12VDC power supply; and RGB strips and light bars to a low-voltage transformer.
Q: Are LED lights dimmable?
A: The answer, in most cases, is yes! Click here to see a page that explains how dimming LED lights works; how you can dim our LED lights with our 12V DC dimmer switch.
Q: What is an IP rating?
A:“IP” stands for Ingress Protection. All of our products have IP ratings, which always has two numbers: the first stands for the protection against solid objects, the second number for protection against liquid. The highest IP rating is 68, and it tells you that the protection against solid objects is a 6, and the protection against liquid is an 8. Click here to see the scale of IP ratings.
Q: How do LEDs work?
A: Light emitting diodes, commonly called LEDs perform many different jobs and are found in all types of devices. Among other things, they form the numbers on digital clocks, transmit information from remote controls, light up watches and tell you when your appliances are turned on.
Q: What are lumens?
A:“Lumens” is the unit of measurement for the brightness of a light. Don’t confuse this with “wattage”, which is the unit of measurement for the electricity consumed by a light. If you’re used to incandescent bulbs, you probably use “lumens” and “wattage” interchangeably. But an LED fixture with the brightness of a “40 Watt” incandescent light uses much less electricity that 40 Watts.
Q: What is color temperature?
A: The color temperature of a light fixture is a measurement of the amount of yellow or blue in the white light that it produces. This measurement is expressed in kelvins; a higher kelvin number means the light is cooler/more blue, and a lower number means that it’s warmer/more yellow. Click here to download documents.
Q:What is high voltage led strips?
A:High voltage is an updated version of low voltage led strips, although low voltage is commonly used now, but, when connecting together, we will find that the brightness of the end will decrease, due to the voltage drop, and the standard of length is only 5 meters per roll, when the project needs many meters LED strips, it will be inconvenient for connecting.
So, we designed 110-220V high voltage led strips, it can be made into 50-100meters per roll, and no need the adapters when connecting, because it can be connected directly with the wall plugs, and its standard length is at least 50 meters, so, for big project which needs many led strips, it would be very convenient.
This LED strip light is our new products, which is the 220V LED strip light- the High voltage LED Flexible light. The Input Voltage of this Flexible LED Lights is AC 220V, not the DC 12V or 24V, there is no need the transformer no need the DC power supply. You can connect this High voltage LED Ribbon Light directly on the AC 220V or AC110V.
The 3-chips SMD 5050 LEDs per meter high output LED strips is made to satisfy customers’ seeking a high brightness of the lighting and brilliant colors effects, the product characterized by the use of TOP 5050 SMD LED as a light source, there are bright, colorful, brightness uniform characteristics, for home decoration, hotels, an ideal light source cabinet lighting options.

Q:LED Strip Light Power Supplies
A: A suitable LED power supply is an essential part of your LED strip installation, it’s important you have the correct rated 12v power supply to run the length of strip light and avoid issues such as colour fading, overloading, etc.
Q: Which 12v Power Supply?
A: The main thing you need to consider is the power output you require from the 12v power supply. The rating of the power supply will vary on each installation as it’s unusual you install the same project twice…
To calculate the required 12v adapter for your project you simply multiply the wattage per metre by the number of metres of strip you will be running. For example, our 3528 strip light uses 4.8W per metre meaning you would need a 24W 12v adapter to run a full 5 metre reel.
Q: 12v Power Adapters
A: Although the primary use of our adapters is to power our LED strip lights we find many customers purchasing them for other uses such as powering video recorders, toys, laptops, etc. If you have any item which requires a 12v power source then our 12v adapters will be ideal for you.
