• Can the LED Strip Lighting be cut?
• Do I have to know how to solder to cut the LED Strip Light?
Yes, every strip light that we sell can be cut at different lengths according to the product. Some product can be cut every inch, some every 2 inches, and others every 4 inches. When cutting the ribbon be sure to cut directly on the line between the copper dots, cutting through the copper dots will damage the product. For the best connection we recommend using stranded wire to solder new leads to the cut strip or use one of our many quick connectors for a quick and easy connection.x
• What power supply do I need to run my LED Strip Lights?
Although we recommend soldering for the best and longest lasting connection, no, you do not need to know how to solder in order to cut and re-use the LED light strip. We carry a variety of quick connectors for every version of strip light that we carry in an array of types and lengths.x
• How flexible is the LED Strip Light?
All of our strip lighting that we sell is 12VDC Constant Voltage type, so first of all you would need a 12VDC power supply. Next determine the entire length that you are planning on lighting and then multiply that by the watts per foot of the product that you are using. Lastly add a 15% cushion to the total wattage that your lights will be using and this will give you the minimum amount of power supply that you will need.x
• What is the difference between RGB and Digital RGB Strip Lights?
The LED Strip Light is slightly flexible in an arcing linear matter but is not meant to be bent, twisted, or wrapped around any angles. Bending, twisting, wrapping, or any other abuse of this product will damage the circuitry on the product.x
• What is the difference between your Ribbon Star LED Strip Lights?
RGB LED Strip Lights are color changing strip lights that can create over 16 million different hues from the combination of red, green, and blue LED chips, when using RGB LED strip lights every section connected to the RGB controller will do the same color changing effect in uniform. Digital RGB LED strip lights can still create the same color effects as regular RGB LED strip lights but they also include an IC control chip that enables every 3 LED chips to perform a different color changing effect when controlled by a digital RGB controller or DMX512 control system.x
We have White and Warm White LED Strip Lighting in three different Levels of brightness. Ribbon Star Ultra is our brightest version and requires a heat sink. Our next bright LED Strip Light is Ribbon Star Max, and then Ribbon Star is our least bright strip light. All single color LED Strip Lights are available in Ribbon Star Max and Ribbon Star. Ribbon Star RGB 180 is the brightest of our RGB LED Strip lights and has 180 RGB LEDs per roll compared to our Ribbon Star RGB 90 that is less bright and only has 90 LEDs per roll.x
