Product details

Blue 12V 5cm LED Strip

• Hugely versatile - can be used around the home, for bright signage, in-car use or electronics projects• Sold per 5cm length so you can buy the correct amount• Can be cut at 5cm intervals whilst the LEDs continue working• Maximum length in 1 piece: 5 metres• Highly visible and flexible• Self adhesive peel and stick reverse

The light-strip can be cut at intervals of 5cm across the marked vertical line. Each 5cm length has three stunning bright LEDs and a diode mounted on to it. When ordered as a full reel of 5 metres (100 x 5cm units), the light strip will be provided with cable terminations already attached as supplied - this is particularly useful for industrial applications where a fast installation is required.

For shorter lengths, the user will be required to solder suitable wire (recommended Order Code: XR40T - black wire and Order Code: XR44X - red wire) to the strip and connect the other end of the wire to a suitable DC 12 V power supply. The current requirements for various LED strip lengths are shown in the spec table. Please note: For mail-order and internet sales, the LED light-strip can only be supplied in full reels of 5 metre lengths. For smaller lengths, please check your local Maplin store for availability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product at reasonable price I bought a 20cm length and used it to mend a broken high-level brake lamp on a MINI. At a price of just over £5, was a cheap job (when compared to the price of a new car part). The strip is well made, and easy to solder to the connectors. The LEDs are bright. I particularly like the way in which you can so easily cut it into 5cm lengths. Perfect for what I wanted.

I'm wanting to add these to an RC car I'm currently building. The battery however is only 7.4 volts. I don't mind if these are a little dimmer but will they work at all?

what do I power short lengths of this with? I have an idea for an electronics project but i am unsure of the power supply to use with it

Asked by: digideus
It would depend on the length of the strip being used, the voltage is always 12V, the current would increase by approximately 20mA for every 5cm section of strip. You would need a 12V power supply, with enough current output for your chosen length. Length of Cut Strip Approximate Current 5 centimetres (1 unit) 20mA 1 metre (20 units) 400mA 2 metres (40 units) 800mA 4 metres (80 units) 1.6A

Does each strip need to be individually powered? I would like to run some round my kitchen, but there is an extractor fan in the middle, so could I continue the lights or would it need a new strip?

Asked by: Anonymous
These can be cut to length at the marks provided (every 5cm). The two sections can be joined using the same cable used to connect to the power supply feeding power across to the second strip without requiring a second power supply.
