300 white LED 5m Strip @Bangood

Found 26th Oct 2016
Seems like worth a punt as 12V power supply is easy to find and probably they won't need any special LED drivers.

Luminosity stated is 840lumens per meter, so i am guessing these are same or better than philips hue white ambiance light bulbs (light output-wise), but since these are a strip would probably distribute light better. For those interested in DYI might get a light driver with RPI for remote dimming.

They seem to have option to select white/warm white or the RGB on this page - banggood.com/5M-…762. White and Warm white seem to be £2.25 (so 25p more)

is this the same as the one posted yesterday
2 questions: Can you cut the strips down to smaller pieces? And what powers them? Batteries/mains?
now £5
​yes you can. you cut them at specific points. You can mains power them via an led driver or use a power supply plugged to wall socket. They sell adapters so you can just clip them to the end of the light strip and your power supply will plug straight into them. Make sure to work out what ampage you'll need based on the type of led on the strip and how many there are.
What I wanted, but its now £5

You need a 12V power supply.
you have to buy a led driver/transformer 240v to 12v. it's very easy to solder it or use junction box. also this strip can be cut at specific points, but you'll need a soldering iron.

I don't think you need any LED driver if you don't want to dim them. I am guessing you can simply get a 12V adaptor like this one - amazon.co.uk/Ada…ply. I'll know more once I get the order delivered.

this one is good too, but needs a plug to be close to the strip, otherwise has to be used with extension cable.

First it was Chilli, then it was Salted Caramel, now it's LED everything! Argghh!
good for round the TV, up the stairs,just cut the strip where it shows you, adapters csn be bought from anywhere
but price if buying both isn't much cheaper than buying a dimmer one from The Range
Mine was delivered today, two wire to attach to power supply. Possible to to with batteries?

​you need 12v (so 8 AA batteries in series) and i believe the strip draw about 2A so the batteries might last 2 hours assuming 2000mAH battery rating.
