What does RGB 5050 mean?
The 5050 is an RGB strip whose chips measure 5.0mm by 5.0mm. They have 3 LED diodes in each casing called tri-chips, which gives them a very bright glare when turned on at full power.
How many lumens is a 5050 SMD LED?
On SMD LED lights, lumens are simply calculated per chip. Larger 5050 SMD LED chips are rated at 15 lumens per chip. Our most common 5050 bulb uses 24 chips, so its calculated lumen output is 360 lumens (15 x 24 = 360 lumens).
How long do SMD LED last?
An SMD LED can last up 100,000 hours. In other words, an SMD LED can provide more than 11 years of continuous lighting. Additionally, LED lights won’t burn out like incandescent light bulbs unless serious hardware damage occurs. The brightness of an LED can, however, gradually fade.
