The 5050 SMD is actually a ‘tri’ chip, meaning it has three smaller chips in every SMD. So each white LED actually has three white chips inside. 5050s can also be used for colour-changing LED tape, with red, green and blue chips inside each LED.
Which is brighter LED 5050 or 3528?
5050 chips are typically 3 times as bright as 3528 chips. Because they’re brighter, strips with 5050 chips are typically used for what we call ‘task lighting’, and commonly used underneath kitchen cabinets where that light will help you see what you’re working on.
What is the difference between 2835 and 5050 LED?
As mentioned above the 2835 SMDs can produce 360 to 720 lumens of light per meter of the light strip, depending on the LED density, however, the 5050 LED strip can produce up to a 1000 lumens per meter of light. This makes it perfect for lighting larger spaces like airports, hospitals, warehouses, factories, and more.
What is the difference between RGB 5050 and 3528?
Theoretically, comparing the same number of chips, SMD 5050 LEDs can offer a light output 3 times that of the 3528 strips, and therefore the 5050 LED is well suited for lighting up areas that may be subject to high levels of ambient light.
