How long do LED strips last?

The service life of the LED light bar is usually about 50000 hours.

The reasons affecting the service life of LED light bar include: capacitor and driver, ambient temperature and heat dissipation.

1. Its service life is affected by capacitors and drivers.

Since plastic capacitors were used to store energy in the early drives of LED light bar, these capacitors can only be used for one year when using LED light bar regularly.

And because plastic capacitors are greatly affected by external factors such as heat and ambient temperature, the service life of plastic capacitors is short, which will further affect the service life of LED light bar.

Now, LED light bar lighting manufacturers have begun to use ceramic capacitors.

Because ceramic capacitors have higher heat resistance, ceramic capacitors can ensure a longer service life of LED light bar.

2. Its service life is affected by ambient temperature.

If you install the LED light bar in a closed environment, its lighting equipment will easily affect the chip and driver of the LED light bar due to the surge of ambient temperature.

Therefore, the service life of LED light bar will be greatly reduced in this case.

I suggest you install the LED light bar in a place where there is enough space for heat generation and proper cooling.

3. Its service life is affected by heat dissipation.

Because the chip and radiator of the bulb in the LED light bar are sensitive to high temperature, the temperature of the bulb should be lower than 85 ℃.

Because this is not only beneficial to the heat dissipation of LED light bar radiator, but also beneficial to its service life.
