Want to add an extra flair to your room with bright colored neon LED strips? This article will bring you more about neon light strips.

Whether it’s signage or a decoration piece, neon LED strip lights are built to illuminate the whole room with its bright, funky colors and clear light.

Let us read this article to find out:

1. What is a Neon LED Strip?

Neon LED strip lights are the most efficient form of LED lighting that you can use in residential, commercial, and industrial areas. This strip is a flexible LED tube, enclosed in silicone and consists of a cluster of LEDs installed on a PCB strip. The flexibility of this neon LED strip makes it more user friendly and multi-purpose.

Here are some ways you can utilize this flexible neon light for:

  • An accent, or drawl lighting in your living area
  • Task lighting in your office
  • Creating your retail display signages
  • Ambient lighting inside your RV or around your RV’s awning
Led Neon Light Using

The neon LED deliver a uniform lighting so that you can have the perfect ambiance. Here are some other benefits you must know about neon light strips:

Better in the Longer Run

Every neon flex LED light comes with dotted lines present after every 1 meter along the solder pads. You can cut them to achieve the desired length.

Lower Maintenance

Once you install these Neon LED flex, you don’t need to do anything else as they require little to no maintenance.

Improved Efficiency

These neon LED strips convert electrical power into visible energy in a more efficient manner. Without having to compromise on the LED light output, you can reduce your energy costs.

High Waterproof Grade

All neon led strips are designed with IP67 waterproof grade. Available for outdoor use.

Easily Bendable

Myledy neon LED strip lights are extremely flexible and feature a minimum bending diameter of 6 cm.

Convenient and Widely Using

Highly flexible, Uniform and beautiful light output, making LED Neon Light a variety of shapes and be widely used.

2. LED Neon Light vs LED Strip Light?

Another important thing you should be mindful of before purchasing your LED is the difference between LED neon and strip light. Here are some vital discrepancies for your consideration:


Even though both are almost similar, they do have different manufacturing designs. LED neon lights are linear LED lighting, enclosed inside a thin silicon outer covering. The silicone sleeve makes LED neon’s lighting output more diffused and soft as compared to LED Strip Lights.

Neon flex has about 30-80LM/W, whereas Strip lights produce a light output of about 100-180MW.

The power of neon lights is no more than 18W. That’s why strip lights are a better option where you need higher light output.


If you are planning to decorate your workstation, then Neon light is the best option for you. LED Neon is more visible and are continuous throughout the length, and you can easy to create different shape design by using Neon Strip light.

LED Strip Lights have a gap between the LED SMD, making them less appealing for decoration. LED Strip Lighting suits the best when you use them behind frosted diffuser which can reduces the glare from seeing the LED. They are more common for decorating commercial architectural lighting.

3. Neon LED Flexible Strip vs Traditional Neon Glass Lighting

With several neon variants available in the market, consumers sometimes find it hard to choose the best one for their lighting needs. The most commonly available ones are traditional neon glass lightings. However, here are some key differences you should consider before making a final decision:

Environment Friendly

The neon flex LED strip produces fewer CO2 emissions to reduce your carbon footprint and promote a greener environment. Whereas the traditional glass one uses toxic elements such as Mercury for lighting, making the neon flex light a greener and safer option.

Light Source

LED neon flex lights use LED, which is a solid-state semiconductor, to produce light energy. The LED makes it more eco friendly and less energy wastage. Whereas the traditional neon glass lighting uses neon gas fluorescents for illumination, it increases your energy costs and is also unsafe.


The LED neon flexible tube lights have a lifespan of 50,000 hours, whereas traditional ones last for 10,000 hours only.

Input Voltage

The neon flex LED light uses 24-120 Volts of input, way lesser than neon glass lights use 3KV-18KV.

Better Output

LED Neon Flex output exceeds that of glass neon by a whopping 52%. It produces a lumen output up to 90 Lm/ft, whereas glass neon lights deliver 59.15 Lm/ft.

4. The Installation Guide For Neon LED Strip

Here are some easy steps to install neon LED strips in your residential or commercial property:

Step 1. Cutting to The Right Size You Need

Most of the time, your LED seller will give you pre-cut neon led strip lights. But if they don’t, you can do it yourself.

Every neon flex LED light comes with dotted lines present after every 0.5 meter along the solder pads. You can cut them to achieve the desired length.

Step 2. Connect the Transmission End of the Strip to a Power Connector

  1. First, apply glue to the outer jacket, ensuring glue doesn’t get to any core wiring. And you should note:

1)  Wait for at least 8 hours for the glue to fully set.
2)  Insert the male connector into the light body while keeping the terminal pins aligned with the strip’s core wire.
3)  The connector must fit securely and sit with all aligned terminal pins.

2. Install the clip securely on one side of the strip.

3. Attach the fixing box carefully over the clip.
