Is your cat particularly difficult to find?
How do you power the LED strip on the cat? Surely it wants to move around
Doesn't seem to include power unit. I have 12vDC adapters here but the site mentions a four pin plug. I'm confused.

From the pics it looks like the control box has a socket for standard dc Jack. And the ends of the led strips have a 4 pin configuration.

I added one of these, looks like the right one

Thanks, I think I've got a couple of those. It was the reference to 4 pins that threw me. I can see the normal jack socket now. Ordered.
You can also cut to length as long as you slice neatly at the correct point on the strip wherever you see the 4 copper strips with a scissor symbol. I have a strip stuck around the back edge of the big TV in the lounge for mood lighting. Great to have all of the room lights off them just a faint red or blue glow around the TV. Seems to be easier on the eye thatn watchong the bright screen in a fully darkened room.

Random question. Any idea of the rough length between the contact/snip points? Try to plan ahead to fill an area with as many led's as possible.
Cant remember as I have had two different sets recently. One for an aquarium which could be cut every three LED segments but I seem to think that for this version, it being around 24". I'll check tonight..

Have you never heard of pimping a pussy
If this is 2 lengths do they come with the connectors etc to join or do you run 2x 5m lengths out separately from the same controller?
Also with rgb can you only use red green and blue? I want white ones lol
SMD 2835 is dim and lowest quality in LED light strip series.

With this deal no power supply and for this price it should be water proof .

Don't bother quality is CRAP.... Missing leds, broken connections. Died within a few weeks.

Really? I've read elsewhere that 2835 are newer and generally more efficient LEDs. Are you sure you are not thinking of 3528?

These also claim to use Epistar leds, which are presumably better than unbranded leds.

Downside with these over 5050s is they're 1/3 of each colour and not RGB leds so you can't do white.

instyleled.co.uk/sup…ip/

The 2835 SMD is a new choice on the LED market. Instyle LED have now tested 2835 chips fully, to confirm their reliability and efficiency.

2.8mm x 3.5mm in size, the 2835 chip is so far only available for white LEDs.

In practice, you can view 2835 SMDs as a more efficient replacement for the 5050 – producing 20% more light but drawing less wattage. Each 2835 SMD pulls 0.2w (a 5050 SMD pulls 0.24w), so that’s around 12 watts per metre compared to 14.4w for the 5050 SMD, based on 60 LEDS p/m. Because the 2835 SMD is smaller and doesn’t get as hot, it’s possible to mount up to 120 LEDS p/m – that’s 24w p/m – giving up to 2600 lumens per metre!

  • Cool white 5050 SMD 60 LEDS (14.4w p/m) = 1080 lumens per metre
  • Cool white 2835 SMD 60 LEDS (12w p/m) = 1300 lumens per metre
  • Cool white 2835 SMD 120 LEDS (24w p/m) = 2600 lumens per metre

And



Generally speaking, SMD 2835 design is newer and more advanced than 3014 than 3528. Because 2835 has more effective thermal dissipation system, specifically, a larger heat sink than 3014 on the back, and 3528 has no back heat sink at all, therefore 2835 is able to take higher current and generates more luminous flux.

My spare one measured a cut point every 6.5" or 16 cm. and 9 LED's between each cut. Can't guarantee that they haven't changed the design but the photo's look like mine. After cutting, sections running at an angle or parallel can be linked by carefully soldering link cables between the copper strips at the cut points but be careful to join them up like for like...R To R , B to B etc to avoid a barbecue

Awesome. Thanks for that, much appreciated
