Boogey Lights® Low-Profile & Heavy Duty Surface Mounted LED Strips

Product Information & Specifications

  • All Boogey Lights® Flexible LED products are native 12vdc.  Optional 120vac to 12vdc power converters are available however we always recommend using 12vdc directly if you can.
  • The LOW-PROFILE flexible surface mounted LED strips have between 3 and 300, hi-intensity 5050 super bright tri-chip LEDs depending upon how ordered. There are 60 LEDs per meter (~ 18.29 LEDs per foot). Scroll down to see a conversion chart showing the # of LEDs to Length (in inches).  See product configuration for available configuration options. RGBW and RGBWW low-profile strips use a combination of 5050 chips for RGB and 2835 chips for the W and WW diodes. On the RGB LED strip, the color 'white' created by mixing equal parts Red + Green + Blue is a COOL WHITE with a 6000 Kelvin temperature. The color 'white' created by lighting the fourth diode on the RGBW strip is a WARM WHITE with a 2400 Kelvin temperature. The RGBWW led strips offer both a Warm White led chip (2400K) and a Cool White led chip (6000k). Mixing the Warm White and the Cool White on the RGBWW led strip will create a 'Natural' or 'Neutral' white with a 4500 Kelvin temperature. See photos below of these shades of white each of these led strips creates. The RGBA low-profile strip use a 5050 LED tri-chip for RGB and a 2835 chip for Amber.
  • LOW-PROFILE LEDS:  Low profile for easy-to-conceal placement. IP65 rated. RGB and Single color low profile LED strip width is 3/8" (10mm). RGBW, RGBA and RGBWW width is about 1/2" (12mm). Height is 1/8" (3mm). Lengths of the low profile LED strips vary based on the number of LEDs ordered. See product configuration. In all cases, the maximum length of a low profile LED strip is 16'. If you need to go longer you can add multiple strips. Important to note that the length listed is the actual LED strip that touches the mounting surface. There is an additional 1/2" or so of space required to make room for the power-lead that attaches to the LED strip. Make sure your measurements allow for this additional space. 
  • The HEAVY DUTY LED strip configuration of these surface mounted LEDs are only available in these five fixed lengths: 15 LEDs (~12" long), 30 LEDs (~ 22" long), 45 LEDs (~ 32" long), 60 LEDs (~ 42" long) and 75 LEDs (~ 52" long). The Heavy Duty LED strips cannot be made in longer sizes or custom lengths.
  • HEAVY DUTY LEDS: Our Heavy Duty LED strips are IP67 rated and use the same LEDs and PCB as our low-profile LEDs however they're encased in rubber for more protection.  This makes them wider and taller than our low profile strips.  RGB and Single color Heavy Duty LED strip width is .50" wide and .25" tall. The RGBA (RGB + Amber) Heavy Duty LED strip width is 11/16" wide (almost .75" wide) and 1/4" tall. The length varies based on the configuration selected and the number of LEDs. The number of LEDs currently offered in our Heavy Duty strips are: 15, 30, 45, 60 and 75.   Scroll down to see a conversion chart showing the # LEDS to length for these strips. 
  • Boogey Lights RGB, RGBW, RGBA and RGBWW LEDs are common cathode LEDs. They share a common ground and will only work with positively switched controllers. Most third party led controllers are negatively switched controllers and will not work with Boogey Lights RGB, RGBW, RGBA or RGBWW LEDs.
  • A NOTE ABOUT RGBWW LEDS. RGBWW LEDs are designed to give the user the best of both RGB multi-color and a spectrum of white with the WW diodes on one single LED light strip. While the LED controller will allow you to turn on both the RGB and WW diodes together, the strip is not designed for both RGB and WW to be used together for prolonged use. When operating your RGBWW LEDs, we do not suggest turning both the RGB and WW leds on at the same time particularly on the brightest white setting possible. The reason is that with all 5 diodes lit on the brightest setting, the heat generated from the LED chips will burn the epoxy poly-urethane coating on the strip from the inside out giving the coating a yellow appearance which will in turn, give the LED colors a permanent yellowish tint which cannot be reversed.
  • Printed Circuit Board (PCB) for most products can be ordered in your choice of black or white PCB. See product details for available PCB color offerings.
  • Unless stated otherwise in the product description or options, the power lead is soldered and sealed at one end. 4-conductor power lead (red, green, blue and black) for RGB multi-color, 2-conductor power lead (black and red) for single color and 6-conductor power lead (red, green, blue, black, white, grey) for RGBW and RGBWW unless otherwise indicated in the product configuration.
  • Attaches with 3M® double-sided VHB tape already applied to the back of each strip. 3M Adhesion Primer MUST be used when mounting these strips if you want them to stay stuck. Note: 3M adhesion primer is not included unless otherwise stated.
  • Both the single color LOW PROFILE and HEAVY DUTY LED strips are dimmable using Boogey Lights single color LED controllers/switches. While they will likely work with other manufacturer's dimmable switches, we cannot guarantee it. RGB and RGBWW LEDs are also dimmable but require a positively switched Boogey Lights LED controller to operate.    
  • LEDs are completely sealed against the elements. They are heat resistant, waterproof and easily cleaned for maintenance free operation. NOTE: LED strips are not intended for use in salt-water applications or to be submersed in water for extended periods of time. These are not marine grade LED lights which fall into another classification.
  • COLORS: RGB LEDs (low profile and heavy duty) will display 7 pre-set colors using a Boogey Lights® LED Controller. Those colors are: Red, Green, Blue, White, Light Blue, Lime Green/Yellow, Hot Pink/Hot Purple. If you use a Boogey Lights® Bluetooth enabled LED Controller with our RGB LEDs, there are total possible combination of 16 million color combinations. The RGB component of the RGBW, RGBA and RGBWW LED strips will also display these same colors.
  • AMPERAGE: Appropriately sizing the components in your lighting system is critical. Making sure your lighting system doesn't exceed the amperage ratings of each individual component is essential. Scroll down for our amperage data chart that details amperage draw per led for both our low profile and heavy duty led light series. We list amperage draws on two input voltages: 12.5vdc and 13.5vdc. If you're wiring your lights to a vehicle that has a charging mechanism (e.g. alternator), that input voltage will likely increase particularly as RPMs increase.  It's not unusual for an alternator to charge the battery at a rate of 14 vdc depending upon the vehicle. Increasing the input voltage to the LED Controller/LEDs will also increase the amperage draw of those LEDs. We always suggest measuring actual amperage drawn for your particular installation to make sure it's fused and wired appropriately. If you are not familiar with DC electricity and how to measure both voltage and amperage draw, we urge you to seek the assistance of someone who does. Improperly sized circuits can cause fires and/or damage other electrical systems in your vehicle.  
  • POWER LEAD WIRE: For power lead lengths under 20' the LED strip will use 22awg cable. For longer lengths, it will use 20awg cable. RGB uses 4 conductor cable. RGBWW uses 6 condudctor cable. Single color uses 2 conductor cable unless 4 conductor is requested.
  • DOT COMPLIANCE: The AMBER and RED single color LED strips are DOT COMPLIANT. They conform to applicable provisions of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 requirements.
  • CREATING ORANGE (or AMBER/GOLD) WITH RGB LEDS: Simply put, you cannot create the colors ORANGE, AMBER or GOLD using RGB LEDs. If you want to know more about why, check out this page here on understanding the visible light spectrum and led technology. So what's the solution? To get something that looks more like orange (gold/amber) to the human eye using RGB LEDs you need to mix equal amounts of RED + GREEN (actually just a bit less green since the human eye is more sensitive to green wavelengths). This will give you the color YELLOW. Then, increase the intensity of the RED just a little (or, pull back the green). This will essentially add a little red to the yellow to effectively mix a color that has an orange tint. It's not perfect but it's as close as you can get to the color orange using RGB led lights. Another option is to use our RGBA LED strip.  By mixing the Amber chip with the Red diode, you'll get a color that looks more like orange.  
  • THE PROBLEM WITH PURPLE LEDS:. With only a few exceptions, we do not offer PURPLE LEDS for most of our light kits. The reason is that Purple LEDs are really ultra-violet LEDs. As such, they're not very bright and quite disappointing in terms of brightness. The alternative to UV/Purple is MAGENTA (some call it a 'hot purple') which looks similar but has a brighter, pinkish tint. Magenta is available by mixing 100% RED + 100% BLUE which is what our single color Magenta is. You can also mix magenta using our RGB LEDs and an LED controller.  
  • MAGENTA / HOT-PURPLE LEDS: Our single color Magenta (Hot-Purple) LEDs are created using RGB LED strips. The BLUE and RED power leads of the RGB LED strips need to be wired together. The GREEN power lead is not used and should be capped. Lighting just the red + blue diodes in the RGB strip creates the magent/hot-purple color.
  • WIRING DUAL COLOR LEDS: The Dual Color LED configuration uses our RGBA LED strip but instead of pairing that LED strip with an RGB LED controller, we hard wire a combination of one, two or all three of the RGB diodes (red, green or blue) along with the AMBER diode to one three position switch (on-off-on) or two on/off switches. One switch operates the primary color diode(s). The other switch operates the amber diode. There are a total of seven Dual Color configuration options: RED+AMBER, GREEN+AMBER, BLUE+AMBER, MAGENTA+AMBER, YELLOW+AMBER, CYAN+AMBER, WHITE+AMBER. With a Dual Color configuration you don't need an LED Controller. Instead, you only need two switches (and relays); one to control each color. Here's a link to the wiring diagram for DUAL COLOR leds. You can also find it on many of our product pages.
  • KNOW YOUR STATE LAWS: Installing accent lighting on your vehicle is not illegal. It's just like having a mobile phone with you while driving. Where and how you use either of these devices while driving may be restricted by law. We remind customers to check their local laws when it comes to driving or riding with accent lighting turned on. Keep in mind too that the laws for motorcycles, cars and trucks (or larger vehicles) are often different. More details here.

Amperage Data

It's not possible to capture LED color hues and brightness levels with a digital camera and then accurately reproduce those colors in a photograph the way the human eye sees and the brain interprets those same colors in person. To show a more accurate color hue, the brightness levels of the photos below have been severally restricted. In person, the light coming from these LED strips will appear significantly brighter to the point at which you should not look at them directly.
