Description: Gone are the days that you have to worry about silicone weather proofing splitting and breaking on you! These are sealed non-addressable 1 meter long RGB LED strips that come packed with 60 5060 LEDs per meter. Each of these LED strips need a 12V supply and are enclosed by a flexible silicon jacket with an IP65 waterproof rating to protect your precious 5060 LEDs. You will be able to control the whole LED RGB Strip together giving you cool lighting effects for your car, fish tank, or perhaps under cabinet lighting in your kitchen!
Note: These come in 1m segments on a reel. They are preterminated with wires, as shown in the pictures.

You just need to apply +12V to the + pin and ground any of the colored wires to turn the LED color on.
If you want use it 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 it worked good with my variable power supply set s 12V/1A. The LED strip does get warm to the touch when using.
12V Wall Adapters
A maximum of two colors can turn on with our 12V/600mA wall wart [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9442 ]. It will get hot and shut off. It will work after the wall wart is unplugged and letting it cool down. You might want to just get the 12V/5V (2A) laptop brick power supply [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11296 ] or any of the Mean Well Switching Power Supplies in our storefront.
These can work also with a 9V battery . A maximum of 2 LEDs with a certain length can be turned on. The internal resistance will go up as you pull more power and they will become dim. You might be able to get it working with all 3 colors if you PWM the strip so that all the colors are not fully turrned on.

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.
