Discovering the Most Luminous LED Strip

This guide offers an exploration of the myriad LED strip varieties, each boasting its distinctive qualities. Our primary focus, however, will be on the most luminous LED strip available in today’s market.

So, which LED strip claims the title of being the brightest?

Taking the lead are the exceptionally efficient SMD2835 LED strips. These feature 9 LEDs per section, a CRI exceeding 80, a light efficiency exceeding 220LM/W, and a power surpassing 20W/M. With the SMD2835 LED’s superior brightness and large chip size, they incorporate pure copper 3OZ or 4OZ PCB.

LED strip brightness is gauged by lumens, which quantify the visible light produced by a light source or lamp. Essentially, Lumens equals Light Output.

How is the brightness, or lumens, of LED strips impacted?

The two primary factors dictating the lumens of LED strips are light efficiency (lm/w) and power (w/m). In basic terms, the LED strip’s lumens are the product of luminous efficacy and power.

Luminous efficacy, or Light Efficiency, indicates a light source’s ability to generate visible light. The luminous flux to power ratio is measured in lumens per watt (lm/w).

Several factors can impact this light efficiency:

CRI: The Color Rendering Index (CRI) quantifies how accurately a light source can reproduce the colors of various objects compared to a natural or standard light source. While a higher CRI is important, it often results in lower luminous efficiency.

CCT: Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) measures a light source’s perceived color – how yellow or blue the light appears. It’s measured in Kelvin and typically ranges between 2200 and 6500 Kelvin degrees. Generally, a higher CCT corresponds to higher light efficiency.

LED Chip Size: The components of LED lamp beads, which emit light, include chips, brackets, and the gold wires connecting the two. The chip, the light-emitting component, size correlates to the luminous efficiency of the LED lamp beads: larger chips, higher luminous efficiency.

Power also plays an important role when light efficiency is fixed: higher power translates into higher lumens. To achieve greater brightness, a power increase is required.

Power in LED strips is majorly influenced by the following:

PCB: The Printed Circuit Board (PCB), principally made of copper, connects components like LED lamp beads and resistors. The copper content determines PCB’s conductivity – the thicker and wider the copper, the higher the current it can carry and the faster the heat dissipation, both crucial for enhancing the LED strip’s power.

Aluminum Profile: High power equals high heat. To prevent lifespan reduction of LEDs due to overheating, LED strips are often attached to aluminum profiles for efficient heat dissipation.

LED Density: Individual LED lamp beads have a maximum current limit. An increase in LED lamp bead density is required to augment the LED strip’s power.
