Product details

White 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 Excellent product This LED strip is really useful but I think the website should say that it is warm white. Soldering the connections is a bit tricky but I managed it OK.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bright light, but fiddly and prone to breaking The LEDs on this strip are quite bright for the price (for short strips anyway), but they have a few flaws: - no labelling!! This meant that the first time I got them home I had red instead of white. Having "red" or "white" printed on each strip would help! - they're fiddly. The solder points are quite small, and I ended up having to make a tiny hole in the contact and wire through to keep the connection steady - they aren't cuttable every 5cm - these seem to be made in 30cm lengths and soldered together, and you obviously can't cut through the join (unless you're very careful, but you risk damaging them doing so) - on my set, one set of 3 (in the middle, of course) broke - meaning that I had to cut them out, rejoin the rest and have a shorter string. Not too fussed, but it's a bit of a pain. Overall, alright for small projects, but for anything big use soemthing else.

Hi, I'm building a small circuit with a 9v battery and a push to break switch so when button is released,  the leds light. But I would like to know which resistors to use, so do you have the forward voltage for each 5cm strip  please to calculate?

Asked by: Brad123
The Forward Current is 200 mA

How do you expose the terminals, prior to soldering? Clear plastic covering seems to be very firmly fixed and I am afraid of damage.

Asked by: Peter
In the past we have used the soldering iron to melt the away.

I'm looking at about 2 metres in length of this. Can it be bowered by a small ordinary battery?

Asked by: Mack
This item runs of 12V so it would need to be a 12V battery.

can 5m lengths be joined together and then a further 1m length added to make a continuous strip of 11 linear metres to be switched from one switch via a single power supply? Is the strip self adhesive? f not do you sell specific clips or fixings for it?

Asked by: ACL55
The maximum length these can run for are 5m so 11 meters would be too long. The strips are self adhesive.
