Our High-Density LED Flex Strips are perfect for lighting professionals as well as home owners with a do-it-yourself attitude. They are easy to use, making it possible to install yourself even with minimal knowledge on the electrical side. The strips are sealed in silicone, making them waterproof (IP65 Rated) so they can be used for outdoor applications or in areas where they might be exposed to water (kitchens, bathrooms, etc.). They come with double-sided 3M adhesive tape, adding to the ease of installation. They must be powered from 12VDC and NO LED DRIVER IS REQUIRED.
We offer these strips in single colors: Warm-White (3000K), Neutral-White (4000K), Cool-White (6000K), Red and Blue.
These strips can be purchased in 3-foot increments up to 16.4 feet long (1 full reel). However, we realize that all applications have different lengths which is why the strips are actually cuttable every 3 LEDs (2 inches). There is a thin black line between solder pads, which marks where you are to cut the strips.
Sometimes you may need to cut small strip sections where there is a break in your application. You can still run small strips together using 24 gauge wire to run them in series (end-to-end). TAKE NOTE: You may only run strips in series up to 16.4 feet long (1 reel) as after this the voltage drop becomes too great and you will lose light and efficiency from your system. If your application needs over 16 feet you will have to get another power supply or run wire from the extra strip directly back to the first power supply (wiring in parallel).
Connections can be made by soldering wire in between strips or by using solderless clamps (see right). Only one end of the strips come with wires on it so if you want to make more connections you will need to solder or use solderless connectors.
These strips use 5050 SMD LEDs to give off 425 Lumens/Meter. There are 60 LEDs every meter that run at 12 watts. That's an efficacy of 34.5 Lumens per watt!
These strips are dimmable and can be used with our 12V PWM Dimmers. The dimmer will go between your power-supply and strips. The available dimmers can be seen above by clicking on the accessories tab for this product. We have a variety of PWM dimmers ranging from single channel remote, to multi-channel remote and wall mount PWM dimmers.

Why High Density LED Flex Strips?
These strips are our Standard Density LED Flex Strips on steroids. They are double populated (60 LEDs/meter compared to 30), therefore they pack a lot more lumen output. Needless to say, these are the strips you need for those applications that need a very bright linear light. They are great for outdoor applications as they are brighter and much more noticeable. They are also better for larger rooms/households. If you have an exceptionally large area you probably want to go with these high density strips as they will give you the light you need to illuminate up your spot.
Are there any tutorials on how to set these up?
Does the 3M tape backing work on its own for mounting these strips?
In our own tests and from talking with customers, the strips seem to hold well with just the taped backing. If you have an application where the strips are exposed to outside elements or in an area you can't easily fix, we would recommend using a little bit of hot glue, gorilla glue, or U shaped nails/brackets to add some support.
What size power supply do I need?
The High Density LED flex strip lights need to be powered by 12VDC, the amperage of the power supply will vary which affects the total wattage your power supply can handle. (Wattage = Volts x Amps)
The high density flex strip lights run at 12 Watts/meter (roughly 3.7 Watts/ft.). So just find out the length you are running, figure in your wattage and select a 12VDC output power supply that can handle that wattage. You don't want to max out your power supply, so it is usually a good idea to get a slightly larger power supply than you may need.
Can you use a battery as a power source?
Since batteries give off direct current (DC) they can be used to power the strips. Just make sure it's 12VDC and always make sure to check the amperage so you know you are set.
How do the strips connect to the power source?
The flex strips come with 6 inch wire leads on one end. These can be wired straight to power supplies with terminal blocks like our open frame power supplies.
How can you connect two lengths of strips together?
This can easily be done in a couple different ways, but first, you must note that you are only able to connect these strips in lengths up to 32 feet (2 full reels). After this, the voltage drop is too great throughout the strip and you will lose your light. If you need more you will need to run wire from the extra length back to your power source directly.
You can connect the strips by soldering wire in between the strips. If you don't want to use wire or are unable to solder than our 2-pin (for single color strips) and 4-pin (RGB strips) connectors will work. You can choose a gapless connection or choose one that has 6 inch wires in between for tight corners or small gaps. Take a look at the accessories tab under wires and connectors for these options.
How do I connect to the solder pads with the silicone in the way?
In order to make connections like we talked about above you will need to take a razor blade or small knife and carefully cut into the silicone to peel it away. WARNING: do not cut too far down and into the strip as this will ruin the strip and will not work properly.
Can I dim and control these LED strip lights from a standard switch and dimmer?
No, you will need what is called a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Dimmer. We have a few options in the accessories tab under Dimmers and Controllers.
You can, however, use a standard switch on the outlet that supplies power to the strips. This would allow you to turn the power on/off to the strips, but would not give you any dimming capabilities.
