  • Good product, not as powerful as promised

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Color of the white is good and remote control works as promised. The brightness could be a little bit better, but It is quite good for RGB LED strip.

    Cons:

    The power consumption of the strip is not 72W as described in specification. I used laboratory power to determine the power consumption, and with 12.4V DC I got current consumption of 2.9 A, which results to ~36W. This was achieved with white mode (all green, red and blue are on).

    Separately, blue and green lights take about 0.9A and the red takes 1.2A.

    OtherThoughts:

    I did not do long-term testing, but I could definitely feel some heat coming from the LEDs, nothing near of burning though.

    The standby current was not major, under 0.1A, but did not measure accurately.

    TIP:

    The "arrow" in the wireless LED controller (the IR receiver) marks the ground, if someone is wondering, how the connection goes.

    NOTE:

    There is no memory in wireless control, if the power source is turned Off and back on, the led strip will turn on in White mode.

    Bottomline:

    Based on the price and quality, I can recommend the product.
