LED ADD-ON Strips with Power Leads
Hi-Intensity ADD-ON LED light strip with heat shrink power lead. Offered in both single color and multi-color. This is an ADD-ON LED strip. It is intended to be used with any number of Boogey Lights® lighting kits including RVs (Under-Glow or Awning Kit), GOLF CARTS, TRUCKS and MARINE lighting kits in situations where you want to add more lights than what the base kit includes. The Multi-Color (RGB, RGBW, RGBA, RGBWW) version of these ADD-ON LED strips are COMMON CATHODE LED strips. They will NOT work without a positively switched BOOGEY LIGHTS® LED controller. They require the controller to operate.
COLOR OPTIONS: There are eight possible single color options (Red, Green, Blue, White, Orange, Amber, Pink, UV/Purple) and four multi-color options (RGB, RGBW, RGBA, RGBWW). On the RGBW led strip, in addition to RGB, you get one extra diode which is Warm White. That warm white diode has a Kelvin temperature of 2400 which means it has a yellowish look giving it a warmer, softer, candle like look. On the RGBWW led strip, in addition to RGB, you get two extra diodes: One is Warm White (2400 Kelvin) and one is Natural White (4500 Kelvin). We have included a photo below showing the differences in the shades of white. On the RGBA led strip, in addition to RGB, you get one extra diode: Amber. Be sure to click on the SPECS navigation tab for detailed product specifications of these LED strips.
LENGTH OPTIONS: These ADD-ON LED strips are available in lengths ranging from 1' to 16' (see drop down box). Important to note that these lengths aren't precise; they're close but not exact. For example, the 4' strip is really 47.25 inches. And the 6' strip is really 70.75". Why? Because the cut point is every 3 LEDs which are not spread evenly every 12 inches of the strip. So, we have to round down to the next available 3 LED group cut point. To see actual cut point lengths, click on the SPECs tab of this product page. Be aware too that each LED strip has the power lead soldered and sealed to it. That solder point assembly will add another ~ 1.5" in length to the strip. Be sure to take this into account when ordering.
POWER LEAD LENGTH OPTIONS: This product is offered in your choice of Power Lead Lengths in increments of 5', 10', 15', 20', 25' and 50'. Power lead lengths of 15' and under use 22awg wire. Anything over use 20awg wire. The power lead wire is color matched to the PCB color of the LED strip itself.
PCB COLOR: The Single Color and RGB multi-color LED strips are offered in both White and Black PCB. The RGBW, RGBA and RGBWW product is offered only in Black PCB.
COATING TINT: Available on RGB with Black PCB. Select CLEAR (default) or SMOKE tint. Details on why this might be important to you are below.
EXTRA 3M ADHESION PRIMER: This product does not include 3M adhesion primer. That's because all of our lighting kits come with 3M adhesion primer sufficient to do the installation. In most cases there will be enough primer left over for an ADD-ON LED strip. Some folks however prefer to order extra; just in case.
AUGUST 2023. Our RGBWW product is a close-out product with limited supply. The maximum length currently offered is 6' long. We have replaced it with RGBW which is offered in lengths up to 16'. Once we sell through the existing RGBWW components, we will no longer offer RGBWW. The reason is the vast majority of customers can use RGBW to achieve the lighting effect they're looking for. RGBW is easier to work with, more durable and less expensive than RGBWW.
RGBWW LOW PROFILE LED strips are designed primarily for awning light (or interior) applications. We offer a ONE YEAR Warranty on this strip. Do not install them for under-glow or end cap applications as they do not have the same PCB structure. They will fail prematurely when used in those applications and are not covered under warranty when installed this way.
CLEAR OR SMOKE TINTED COATING
We offer the option of SMOKE TINTED COATING for our Black PCB RGB LED strips instead of the standard clear coating on our Awning LED Light kits. The smoke tinted LED strip (see photo above) has a nicer daylight look when mounted in plain sight. Some customers prefer this look on their RVs as it blends better particularly with darker color paint schemes. This is a cosmetic option only for LED strips that are mounted where they can be seen in the daylight. It is important to note that this smoke tinted coating does reduce the brightness of the LEDs by about 40%. Boogey Lights LED strips are already incredibly bright (particularly when used on an awning light) so many folks don't mind the reduction in brightness but it is something to be aware of. If you want the absolute brightest Awning Light strip, go with the default clear coat selection. If you want the LED strip to blend in better with your RV's paint scheme during the daytime (and the installation to look a little more finished) and you're OK with a little less light, the tinted coating might be better.
Will Boogey Lights® Work with Other Brands?
The short answer is probably not. All Boogey Lights® RGB LED strips are COMMON CATHODE LEDS. They share a common ground and will only work with positively switched controllers. Most LED strips on the market today are COMMON ANODE because the controller technology used to power them is less expensive to manufacture. However they're not nearly as bright and are an overall inferior design when compared with COMMON CATHODE LEDs. For more information, click the button below.
NOTE ON EXTENDED USE
The LEDs used in this product are very bright; the brightest 12vdc LED lights available. They're designed to be used for accent lighting applications where they are typically powered on for a few hours (usually on a dimmed setting) and then powered off. While they can be used in functional lighting applications (e.g. bright white to temporarily illuminate a work area), the lights should NOT be left powered on for extended periods of time (e.g. 6+ hours). If the LEDs are left powered on for long periods of time - particularly on their brightest setting - the LEDs closest to the power source will have a burned look to them over time. This is because the amount of voltage being pulled through the LEDs closest to the power source will be higher than the voltage going through the LEDs further down the strip. The end result is that those LEDs closest to the power source will be hotter thus creating the burned look. This will occur mostly when displaying the color white on a full brightness setting but can also occur with other colors. For this reason, we do NOT suggest leaving these LED lights powered up for extended periods of time particularly on their brightest setting. Burned looking LEDs is NOT covered under warranty.

RGBWW LOW PROFILE LED strips are designed primarily for awning light (or interior) applications. We offer a ONE YEAR warranty on this strip. Do not install them for under-glow or end cap applications as they do not have the same PCB structure. They will fail prematurely when used in those applications and are not covered under warranty when installed this way.
Note on Commercial Applications: These low-profile surface mounted LED strips are not built to withstand significant flexing or lateral movement of the surface the strip is mounted to. Some examples include on semi-truck trailers as well as tow trucks where there is significant movement, bending or flexing of the surface to which the strip is mounted. Also, the strip can not mounted in such a way as they span multiple mounting surfaces. Mounting them this way will virtually guarantee the strip will fail sooner rather than later. These strips must be mounted to one single continuous smooth, clean, flat surface and in an area that is protected from corrosive chemicals. Commercial vehicles that frequently travel roads treated with corrosive chemicals often used for melting snow and ice can impact the durability of these LED strips if the strips are mounted in an area that is exposed to these chemicals. Hi-Intensity Strips that fail in these operating environments ARE NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY. For these types of operating environments we strongly recommend (and warranty) our HEAVY DUTY LED strips.
