24 Volt LED strips in different light colours

In our LED illuminant online shop, we offer you a very large selection of 24 volt LED strips. These are not only available in warm white, cold white or neutral white, but also in a very warm light colour, or also as a multi-coloured variant, the so-called 24 volt RGB LED strips and then there are the multi-coloured LED strips with additional white light colour. There are also so-called 24-volt CCT LED strips, which are strips that can only emit white light colours, but in perfection.

Why 24 volt LED strips?

It depends on the application. In the area of not so powerful LED strips with a length of up to 5 m, it hardly makes a difference technically whether 12 volt or 24 volt strips are used. For very small applications and in the private sector, 12-volt LED strips are often offered, also because 12-volt DC power supplies are widely available.

For longer distances, or where enormous light intensity is required, we strongly recommend 24 volt LED strips. With 24-volt LED strips, line losses are also significantly lower. Also, fewer feed points are needed.
Buy 24 Volt LED strips cheap?

Do you know the saying, he who buys scrap, buys twice? We at Parcolux offer you solid quality LED strips. You want to know the difference?

In addition to the operating voltage, the thickness of the flexible conductors in the 24 volt LED strips is also decisive for how well the current can flow through these conductors and at what point a new feed is necessary so that no loss of brightness is visible. In the case of cheap 24-volt LED strips, savings are of course made on the material.
The conductor path of 24 V LED strips

In the case of very cheap 24 V LED strips, the conductor tracks are applied very thinly and then become very warm during operation. Of course, the individual LED chips also become much warmer and the heat loss that occurs cannot be dissipated well. Because the heat cannot be dissipated quickly, the service life of the LED chips is shortened and individual LED chips on the strip drop out.

Due to the low thickness of cheap LED strips, they have a much higher resistance than high-quality strips. Due to the higher resistance, the voltage drop is greater and the LEDs at the end of the LED strip receive a significantly lower supply voltage than the LEDs at the beginning of the strip, which is noticeable through a sometimes considerable loss of brightness. With increasing length, the light intensity decreases strongly and you will not like the result. You will notice a clear loss of brightness and you will be disappointed.

Can you cut 24 volt LED strips?

Yes, you can. The LED strips can be easily cut with scissors. This allows you to cut your LED strips to the required length for each project. Please note that the LED strip may not be cut at any point. Each 24 volt LED strip has so-called cutting marks.

LED strips are produced by the metre and are usually offered on a roll of 5m. Due to this production principle, the 24 volt LED strips are divided into many small segments. This makes it easy to cut the LED strip with scissors if necessary. Look for the cut mark that is often marked as small scissors and cut the strip at this point. Never cut the strip at any other point. If you cut the strip at another point, some of the LEDs will not light up afterwards and you will have to find the next available cut mark and cut the strip there.

Can the 24 volt LED strip be repaired?

Yes, you can. If you have cut the 24 volt LED strip in the wrong place, it can be repaired with suitable tools or soldering pots. Please contact us, we will help you.

Can LED strips be extended?

Yes, you can. There are LED quick connectors and also connecting cables, but the best solution from our point of view would be soldering. For example, if you want to make a 10m LED strip from 2 5m rolls, we would connect the strips together at the cut marks. This way you can extend your LED strip.

Can LED strips be glued to the wall?

Theoretically, yes, but this is not recommended at all. Ideally, the strip should be glued to a clean, smooth and heat-dissipating surface. We recommend using aluminium profiles for the LED strips. This way, the heat can be dissipated well and this will also have a positive effect on the service life of the LED chips.
