Description: These are bare non-addressable 5 meter long RGB LED strips that come packed with 60 5060 LEDs per meter, that’s 300 LEDs. As these are bare LED strips that have no protective coating, your project won’t be water proof but there is access to each 5060 LED and each strip length can be easily modified. You will be able to control and power the whole LED RGB Strip together with 12V giving you cool lighting effects for your car or perhaps under cabinet lighting in your kitchen!
Note: These come in 5m segments on a reel. They are preterminated with wires, as shown in the pictures.
Based on 2 ratings:
These strips have good colors and nice brightness, far better than the elcheapo strips I purchased elsewhere. The only problem is the the blue and green wires are mislabeled.
Apply +12V to the + pin and ground any of the colored wires to turn the LED color on. When using with a microcontroller, you would need an n-channel mosfet [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10213 ] to turn it on and off. The LED strips require a lot of power (especially the 5M strips) but worked well with a variable power supply set at 12V/1A. The LED strip does get warm to the touch when using.
