The lighting effect of LED strip lights is very good in creating lighting atmosphere, but do LED strip lights consume high power? Let’s discuss it with you today.
Lamp is a very important decorative tool. It can create a festive, bright and other atmosphere. strip lights are one of the common lighting decorations, and their shadow can often be seen in public places or at home. A strip light is actually a series of small light bulbs produced and processed into a strip light. Therefore, friends who want to decorate and design a strip light at home will ask whether the strip light consumes a lot of power.

   Before we understand the power consumption rate of LED strip lights, let’s first take a look at the types of strip lights. There are two common types of strip lights. One is to use small fluorescent bulbs in series. At present, this kind of strip light is not very common on the market. Electricity, short life. As a result, customer experience and visibility are very low. The other is LED strip lights, which are more popular strip lights on the market now. It is beautiful and elegant, has many advantages such as decorative art, convenience and durability. It is favored by many consumers. It is said on the Internet that LED strip lights consume a lot of power, so many people buy LED strip lights and then use them once or twice and then leave them idle. This is also true in some families. They worry about power consumption. Sometimes when opened once, it becomes a "big vase" and consumes natural resources. So do LED strip lights really consume a lot of power? Let the data speak for itself! Whether the strip light consumes power depends on its output power.

1. No power consumption. The strip light uses environmentally friendly and energy-saving light source LED, that is, light-emitting diode.

2. LED is a green and environmentally friendly lighting equipment. The kinetic energy consumption is about 80% lower than fluorescent lamps with the same special effects, and about 40% lower than LED energy-saving lamps. It can illuminate changeable hues, dimmability, controllable hue changes, optional solid colors and RGB real effects, bringing a colorful visual impact to the natural environment.

3. LED uses low-voltage switching power supply, and the current of the power supply system is between 3-24V DC, which varies according to different products. There are also very few DC36V, DC40V, etc., so it is a more reliable switching power supply than the DC high-voltage power supply. Especially suitable for public places.

   We all know that light bulbs have various output powers, such as 50W, 100W, 200W, etc., and so do strip lights. The output powers of LED lights commonly used by people are 1.5W, 4.8W and 7.2W per meter. The power consumption of 7.2W is considered for many daily applications. We use a high-power strip light of 7.2W per meter for calculation. Assuming that each person uses it for 6 hours a day, the daily power consumption is: 7.2W*6=43.2W. The monthly electricity consumption is: 43.2W*30=1296W, which is 1.296 kilowatt hours, so the annual electricity consumption is 1296W*12=15552W, which is 15.552 kilowatt hours. Fluorescent lights are common in every home. Assume that a 100W incandescent lamp is used for 6 hours a day. The power consumption for 6 hours is 100W*6=600W, which is 0.6 kilowatt-hours of electricity.
