What is the lifespan of LED strip lights?
At present, LED strip lights have been widely used in furniture, automobiles, advertising, lighting, ships, bars and other industries.

General LED strip lights are not easy to break, and their general service life is about 30,000-50,000 hours.

Three factors that affect the life of LED strip lights
Several factors that affect the life of LED strip lights:

1. Since LED is a constant current component, the constant current effect of LED strips produced by different manufacturers is different, and of course the life span will be different accordingly.

2. The poor toughness of the copper wire or flexible circuit board of the LED light strip will cause the LED light strip to break when bent, which will also affect the life of the LED light strip.

3. Power supply factors. LED strip lights are generally powered by constant voltage power supplies (DC switching power supplies). If the output of the power supply is unstable or there is no surge protection, unstable voltage and voltage will be output when the external network voltage fluctuates. Current causes the LED strip to operate at non-standard voltage, which will also affect its service life.

The correct use and maintenance of LED strip lights
First of all, we must prevent them from being harmed. It is understood that more than 80% of the problems with LED strip lights are caused by accidentally hitting the surface hard and causing heavy damage internally, resulting in short circuits and burned out internal components. Although there is a layer of rubber on the outside of the light strip as a protective layer, if it is strongly squeezed and knocked, it will easily cause internal problems.

Secondly, we don’t want to use it for a long time. Some friends just turn on the light strip and leave it alone to save trouble. They keep using it for several days or more than ten days before they think of turning it off. Even if it is an LED light strip with a long life, It is also a very fatal injury. It can be seen that reasonable allocation of use time is also a kind of maintenance for LED strip lights.

The last thing I want to say is to carry out inspections frequently. Although the LED light strip has a relatively thick protective layer, which can effectively waterproof and protect. But we still need to check it frequently to ensure a longer service life in the future.
