The Cob LED Strip Lights series is a high-end flexible decorative light, which is characterized by low power consumption, long life, high brightness, easy bending, and maintenance-free. It is especially suitable for indoor and outdoor entertainment venues, building outlines and billboard production. This product is available in 12V, 24V, etc. according to different needs. 

When purchasing COB LED light strips, there are many types and specifications for you to choose from. Usually color, length and luminous flux are some of the main determining factors. However, in the actual lighting project, there are many deails that need to be considered to achieve the optimal effect. . For example, when selecting lighting fixtures, what is the difference between using 12-volt linear lights or 24-volt linear lights?

1. Different applicable spaces

Because its power is relatively small, 12V light strips are not suitable for use in large areas. Compared with 12V light strips, 24V light strips have much greater power, so they are more suitable for use in large areas. range of some.

2. Different heat dissipation requirements

The heat dissipation requirements of 12V light strips are much higher than those of 24V light strips, mainly because the power of 12V light strips is not as high as that of 24V light strips. If 12V light strips and 24V light strips are installed in the same small space , then the service life of the 24V light strip is much shorter than that of the 12V light strip.

3. Different use distances

12V light strips are not as bright as 24V light strips, so 12V light strips are suitable for short-distance spaces, while 24V light strips are suitable for long-distance spaces. If 12V light strips are used for long-distance spaces, then the lights The brightness of the band will be very dark.

What are the benefits of COB LED light strips?

LEDs offer several advantages over traditional lighting. It is more efficient, converting about 95% of energy into light, with only 5% lost as heat. Greater utilization of energy also makes it more economical.

Unlike fluorescent lights, which contain mercury in their composition, LEDs contain no toxic ingredients, which is good for our health and the environment. In addition, it is 100% recyclable and reduces carbon emissions by one-third compared to traditional light bulbs.

It can also operate at low voltage when connected to clean and renewable solar energy, allowing its external use.
