What are SMD LEDs?

We always get the question, “What are SMD LEDs?” With more and more of our LED lighting kits featuring SMD technology, this is a very important question. SMD LEDs are surface mounted LED chips that produce a much brighter and spotless glow than 5mm LEDs or any other type of single LED bulb. Each SMD chip contains 3 LEDs that work together to bring you that ultra-vibrant, wide angle glow you’re looking for in a LED lighting kit.

LEDGlow’s multi-color SMD lighting kits utilize 3 different colored LEDs to bring all of the included colors to life. It uses Red, Green, and Blue (RGB) LEDs with different voltages of each to display a certain color from your LED lighting kit. For example, if you want to set your kit to the color Orange, the LEDs used to make this color would be mostly Red LEDs with a bit Green LEDs mixed in to create the perfect Orange color. Confusing? A little bit, but thankfully the control box does all of the work for you. Single color SMD lighting kits are brighter than multi-color kits because the LEDs within the SMD chip are all the same color. This allows for single color SMD kits to come standard with multiple brightness levels for you to find your preference. read more
