LED 5050 flexible strip lights feature 50mm x 50mm surface-mount diodes. In general, SMD 5050 LEDs can provide three times the light output of a 3528 strip compared to the same number of chips, making 5050 LEDs ideal for illuminating areas that may be subject to high levels of ambient light.
5050 LED strip lights are thicker and wider than other LED flex strips, allowing them easy to illuminate larger spaces. The large size means you only need a few LED strips to cover a larger area. The added thickness provides more beneficial durability and conductivity of the LED tape light.
The 5050 strip lights generally generate more heat than other smaller LED strips. And you can improve the heat dissipation of LED strips by using aluminum profiles. Moreover, the profiles protect the LED strips and are perfect for improving the aesthetics of the space.
