Our 5 meter roll of side emitting RGB strip lights consist of 3 LEDs per 2" and can be used to accent hallways, stairs, coves, rooms and more. This strip is designed to be hidden and then shine onto walls, backsplashes, toe kicks and so much more. The 4713 size LED chips emit the lights out of the side of the strip unlike a standard strip which shines from the top. The design of the side light output makes it easier to conform to curved surfaces while shining light in a perpendicular direction from the mounting surface. Each 5 meter long strip light has 300 LEDs and requires 2.20 watts of 12VDC power per linear foot of lighting.
