1. What is the led light strip?

Led light strip refers to the LED lamp is welded on a copper wire or a strip-shaped flexible circuit board using a special processing technology, and then connected to a power source to emit light. It is named because it is shaped like a light strip when it is illuminated.

2. Do led lights cost electricity?

There are two types of ordinary led lights. One is a series of small incandescent bulbs. Such LED strips are not very common in the market. Although it is cheap, it costs about a few meters per meter, but it costs electricity. And shorter life. As a result, user experience and popularity are low. The other is led strip, which is the mainstream led strip currently on the market. Its beautiful, decorative, convenient and durable advantages have been favored by most users. On the Internet, LED light bars consume a lot of power, so many people use LED light bars and set them aside once or twice. Some families do the same. Due to concerns about electricity costs, once the decorative LED light strip becomes a "vase" and wastes resources, it sometimes opens. So is the led light strip really expensive?

We all know that bulbs have many kinds of power, such as 50W, 100W, 200W, etc. The same is true for led strips. In general, our commonly used LEDled lights have a power of 1.5W, 4.8W and 7.2W per meter. The 7.2W power consumption is considered to be high in daily use. Let's take the 7.2W high power led lamp per meter to calculate. Assuming we use 6 hours a day, the daily power consumption is: 7.2W * 6h = 43.2Wh. The monthly power consumption is: 43.2Wh * 30 = 1296Wh, which is 1.296 kWh, so the annual power consumption is 1296Wh * 12 = 15552Wh, which is 15.552 kWh. Incandescent lamps are not commonly used by households. Assuming that a 100W incandescent light bulb is used for 6 hours a day, the power consumption for 6 hours is 100Wh * 6 = 600Wh, which is 0.6 kWh. Even the power of incandescent lamps is higher than that of led strips, so the power usage data of refrigerators, washing machines, and air conditioners have no say here.

 This is our hypothetical high power consumption LED light strip. The average household price of 1.2W LED light strip is sufficient. And in fact, the time we use the LED light strip will not reach 6 hours. This is only the estimated power consumption of Dahua, but it is enough to prove that the LED light strip does not consume electricity. It is even more gratifying that many of the LED light strips on the market are energy-saving, energy-saving, environmentally friendly, safe and beautiful, and are deeply loved by the majority of users.


(Ⅰ) Main Features

1, soft, can be curled like a wire;

2, can cut and extend;

3. The bulb and circuit are completely covered in flexible plastic, which has good insulation and waterproof performance and is safe to use;

The led light strip also has the essential advantages of being a lamp: the luminous color is variable, the light is adjustable, the color change can be controlled, and the effects of monochrome and RGB can be selected, bringing colorful visual effects to the environment.


LED lights have been widely used in buildings, bridges, roads, gardens, courtyards, floors, ceilings, furniture, cars, ponds, underwater, advertising, signboards, signs and other fields, used as decoration or lighting for various festivals and events , Such as Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day, Easter, National Day, etc., add endless joy and festive atmosphere, it has entered the five major markets of advertising, decoration, construction, business and gifts with tenacious vitality, and is exported to Japan , EU, Australia and other countries and regions. It is widely used in building corridors, bridges, guardrails, hotels, forest gardens, ballrooms, advertising decoration places, etc.
