The 1 meter long strip is equipped with 60 LEDs and is operated via USB plug. Ideally, the strip can be operated either by power supply unit, USB slot or even a power bank. On the back is a double-sided adhesive strip for easy fastening. Sometimes you have to buy the power supply extra, therefore you have to read the description in the shops carefully. Also there are different sizes available, up to five meters and a waterproof version, which mostly is a little bit more expensive.
The strip is switched on at the built-in switching element and the various modes and speeds can be set. The brightness can be adjusted in five different levels, as well as the speed. By pressing the “Mode” button, the device switches off the colour gradient and one of 20 colour variants can be permanently set. If necessary, the strip can also be shortened at the gold marked points. If you are looking for a longer version, there are different lengths available ?
The LED strips are versatile and TV and/or screen lighting is probably the most common application. But if you have a PC case that can be seen, for example, you can put it in a wonderful light show or offer your fish a special light show in the aquarium. Otherwise you can think of other, unusual uses, can’t you?To the gadget
