We picked up these nice Rigid RGBLED Strips from one of our suppliers for a good price. They contain 30 5050 RGB LEDs which seem to be standard super-bright LEDs, they are 12mm wide and 500mm long with headers every 50mm where they can be cut and soldered. The have nice polarized connectors and six inches of cable on the ends which makes mating them in series simple and quick and easy. Priced low enough that you could afford to take off the LEDs and use them on other projects (.20 ea). The resistors are sized to lend nice balanced white light that is not too cold in color, when powered from 12 volts. The 12V trace which looks to be about 60mils wide is mirrored front and back for extra current-carrying capability.
Perfect for under-counter lighting or any place rigid LED strips make sense. Cheaper by strips of four. Now we have to figure out how to ship them. I’m putting 10 of them up for free samples with a ten dollar order, and 6 four packs free to customers with 30 dollar orders. One of each per customer, the two offers are mutually exclusive, so will require separate orders if you want one of each.
Use code RigidLEDstrip for the single model and 4xRigidLEDstrip for the four-pack.
