Be Your Own Space Decorator With LED Strip Lights

You are the best person to know what would enhance your planned party. So just go ahead and get some tips to start doing up the place yourself with easy to use LED strip lights.

Never loved how the decorators interpreted your party theme? Were desperately waiting for the solution which could be handy and easy to install so that your imagination can come into picture?

Seems like the invention of Magik-LED strip lights have come like a blessing for those who had these questions racing in their heads. For those who are specific about their parties but are not that good with their hands on dangerous wires, these basics below can help you be your own party decorator with some basic info and techniques for using LED strips:

LED Strip Lights

Types of LED Strip lights

a. LED rope lights: LED chips encased in plastic covering.
b. LED ribbons: Flat surface lightings with LED chips without any covering.
c. Self-Adhesive: The ones which can be pasted on the wall without any need of your nails and tapes.

Options available in the market:

You would be able to find the following variations in LED Strip lights -

a. Single color (with a long list of color options)
b. Multi-color
c. Static and pattern based lighting which light with different patterns and timings
d. Variable lengths as per your need which can be the length or the LED count (look for LED strip lights with highest number of chips per foot)
e. Water resistant

What all would you need to know:

a. Basic Electronic knowledge about Volts & Watts.

b. Understand the points from where you can cut the lights (the brass strips in between the LED chips). These are small horizontal brass lines marked with some alphabets on both sides which is the right area to cut the LED strip.

c. The LED strips are joined according to the space between the LED chips that needs to be taken care of while creating a joint. Soldering iron can be used to make such joints and achieve a length as per your space.

d. Find appropriate power supply. For example, 12v power supply with 2Ampere will be good enough to light up a 5 meter LED strip light. Use an adapter with appropriate watts (watts = ampere X volts).

Switch To LED For Environment Friendly Illumination

Someone had rightly said “Incandescent light bulbs lit the 20th century; the 21st century will be lit by LED lamps.”

Though the transformation did not happen in a year, it started decades ago with the primary thought of bringing about a change. The scientist trio Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura developed the first blue LED light in 1993 which was the missing element from white LED light. For more than 30 years, Red, Green and yellow LED’s were much in use but with blue missing, white light went missing. This invention brought about the transformation in the lighting technology forever.

Blue LED came into picture just 20 years ago but then once the white light came into picture, it has brought about a change on a larger frame. It has not only helped people save electricity but also replace the older light sources with a more long lasting and efficient alternative.

 Magik-LED Light

Understanding the technology:
LED i.e. Light Emitting Diodes are tiny devices made up of semiconductor materials that convert electrical energy into visible wavelengths along with some heat when they are connected to an electric circuit. The small unit installed inside your LED lights, called the chip, comes in various sizes in order to fit into various light sources. This diode conducts the current in one direction and is formed by bringing together two layers made up of semiconducting materials:

N-type layer:  N can be taken as negative, i.e. it has negative charge which can also be called electrons.

P-Type layer: P or positive charge explains this layer. Positive charge is carried in form of holes which are then filled up with electrons hence conducting the charge.

Where the electrons fall into the holes, is called the active region.


  • Facts state that about one-fourth of the electricity produced in the world is consumed in lighting. For this high figure indicates that we need a resource like LED in order to conserve the resources.
  • LED’s stand for convenience and efficiency.
  • The rays which are emitted are mercury free making them harmless.
  • The energy savings figures can reach up to 60-70%.
Though the progress has been a little slow, the ecological advancements are attracting more users to switch to this technology in order to illuminate their places better while contributing to the environment.
