Sometimes you need cheap

Although I really recommend getting a good (or at least decent) quality LED strip (check this article (bottom for cheaper but good alternatives), sometimes you just need light and it needs to be cheap! Or, you need a lot of light, insane amounts but you don’t want to pay a lot! Ok, ok, I hear you. Here are some suggestions for white(ish) LED strip! Although I’m a big promoter for 24v LED strip, I will also list some 12v strip if your heart is set on that. Be warned though that especially at 12v voltage drop will be really bad on these cheap strips, I don’t recommend using a longer piece then 2m ( ~6 feet) unless you are “double feeding” or “middle feeding” them.

If you are buying new, check over here to¬†buy the appropriate power supply for the voltage strip you get! And while you’re at it, here are some more interesting articles about LED packages, Water proofing and the amount of LEDs/m!

*The Premium Quality Colordiode strips actually go even brighter than the strips listed here!
