Difference between 2835 and 5050 LED Strip Light

LED light strips are by far the most convenient and efficient way to light your homes, offices, factories, and more. They are compact in size, flexible enough to fit tight spaces, and do not require as much energy as traditional sources of lighting. LED light strips leave a smaller carbon footprint because they do not emit heat the same way as traditional bulbs. They also do not emit any harmful gases or chemicals.
