Waterproof LED lights are not only aesthetically appealing, they can also save you money in the long run. They're incredibly energy efficient, and they burn for years without needing constant bulb replacements.
They "live a long full life"—up to 25,000 hours!
Fluorescent lights, on the other hand, only last around 10,000-15,000 hours. That's far shorter than LED's record-breaking 25,000 hours!
These long-lasting bulbs are perfect for boaters who want to keep their docks looking bright and inviting. They also have a variety of lighting options to suit your unique needs, including remote controlled and color-changing options.
They can be installed in virtually any location and won't get damaged by water or dust.
The best waterproof LED strips have a special coating on the LED diodes and circuit board to prevent them from becoming damaged by the environment. Depending on the application, you can choose from a wide range of waterproof IP ratings.
Whether you're installing the lights indoors or outdoors, they'll need to be protected from regular water contact (IP65) or submersion for extended periods of time (IP67).
You'll need to ensure that the strip lights are correctly connected to each other, so that they won't become a fire hazard. In addition, you'll need to make sure that the power adapter is capable of handling wattage for the number of strips you have.
You can also purchase waterproof LED strips that come with copper solder pads, which make it easy to connect different pieces together or to a new area of your home. They're also flexible and can be cut to size.
