Just to clarify, a 10m strip is recommended for a smaller power supply. If I were to connect say 30m I would need a stronger power supply? Or would I need 3 seperate power supplies

is there a clip on connector that I can use to hook up the lights directly to motherboard? Or is there an LED light strip that already comes with the connector attached. I know Oly some mother boards support it and it has to be 12v

i connect 2 LED strip rolls = 10 meter to big power supply, the LED strip at first is very bright the rest is low light! i don’t know how to solve this problem! can anyone help?

So let me get this straight. Even if you put a 90W power supply on a 1 meter led strip, the leds will only draw what they need in order to function normally?

perfect vid. exactly the info I was looking for

June 24, 2017

That was an excellent video! It told me exactly what I needed to know in a clear and calm fashion.

June 24, 2017

Am I to assume multiple strips are soldered together in series with a continuous circuit? If so will they power up simultaneously or will they power up one after the other? I’m looking to install them on my stairs with a motion detector on top and on the bottom. I’ll have to yet figure out how they are installed.

June 24, 2017

Great Video, just the Info I was looking into. Question: do the Red LED produce 600nm-700nm ? does is the wattage important as in a 3v 12v 120v still produce the same nanometer only difference would be the lumens ? Total Novice but love learning.

June 24, 2017

What about water proof LEDs? Do I need another connector for that?
