Flexible LED Strip Light is already one of the most popular LED products. It is widely used in residential, commercial, and industrial projects.

If you have a project which needs the led strip light and you do not know well about it. This article will give you five simple ways on how to choose the LED strip light for your project.

  • 1. Light Must Be Uniform

1.1 The brightness between these LEDs should be consistent, which is related to the quality of the LEDs. Quick judgment method: use your eyes!

1.2 The brightness of the LED strip should be consistent at the beginning and end, which is related to the voltage drop of the LED strip. The LED light strip needs to be powered by the power supply. When the voltage drop of the LED drive power is relatively significant, the brightness of the LED strips connected too long will be inconsistent.

  • 2. Color Should be Consistency

Light color consistency is also a parameter that tests the quality of LED strip chips. To judge: look straight at the strip, or find a piece of white paper and stick it vertically to the LED light surface, you can decide whether the strip is the same color or not.

  • 3. Choose Suitable Color Temperature Strip Light

Generally speaking, spaces with 3000K and 4000K color temperatures are used more often. But for some applications, low-temperature is necessary, such as upscale hotels, restaurants and clubs, 3000k, even 2200k are great to welcome.

  • 4. Choose The High CRI Type

The Color Rendering Index of the LED strip is not very important when it is used for indirect lighting. But when It for the large-area light-emitting ceiling as essential lighting or display lighting in display cabinets, the CRI>80 is a requirement that a must meet. We company did many projects with CRI>90 and CRI>95 for clients, like the project of food and fruit shops.

  • 5. Choose The High Lumen Efficiency Type

When it comes to LEDs, energy saving is a natural import feature. For the LED strip, the importance of Lumen efficiency has a lot to do with its application scene. For example, when applied to the indirect lighting, the requirements for the lumen efficiency is relatively not as high as when applied to a large area of light-emitting ceiling or display case.

For many projects, the luminous efficiency should at least be above 80 lm/W with a color rendering index CRI > 80. Currently, many types could get to 100 lm/w, even 150lm/w. Of course, it required a much higher cost.

Conclusion

Finally, to summarize what the good led strip lights should be chosen for projects:

  • 1. Light Must Be Uniform
  • 2. Color Should be Consistency
  • 3. Choose Suitable Color Temperature Strip Light
  • 4. Choose The High CRI Type
  • 5. Choose The High Lumen Efficiency Type
