Outdoor (IP65) ColorBright™ RGB 300 Color Changing LED Strip Light

$72.50 - $145.00

outdoor RGB 300 color changing IP65 rated LED strip light

Outdoor IP65 ColorBright™️ RGB 300 Color Changing LED Strip Light


The Outdoor ColorBright™ (IP65) Color Changing 300 LED strip light can be purchased in a 16' 5" reel. Sometimes referred to as "color changing LED tape lights", the strips are as versatile as they are customizable and can be installed in basically any space you can imagine. Using a remote controller, you can change the settings, brightness, and colors of the light strips to almost any color you can imagine! The 300 LEDs per 16-foot reel of color changing LED strips will shine twice as bright as the 150 LED per reel lights. 

The IP65 rating means that the LED strip lights are able to withstand jets and splashes of water from all sides. It cannot be submerged in water, but it will withstand the elements. We also recommend outdoor lights for use indoors in high splash areas or if you're looking for a strip that is easier to clean.

Note: The 12V version of this product has been discontinued and will not be restocked.

Should you select 12V or 24V?

Depends on your application. The main difference between the two is the fact that the 24v strips can be ran for longer distances than the 12v strips can due to Voltage Drop. Voltage drop is the gradual decrease in voltage along a circuit. If your project requires a very long run of LEDs, we would recommend the 24v strips. However, there are also many projects that 12v is required (automotive or marine applications). Please feel free to live chat with us, email us, or call us with questions. 

Before noticing any unwanted color variations or dimming at the end of your run of lights, it is recommended that you run no more than 16ft in series when using 12V or 32ft in series when using 24V.

Outdoor ColorBright™ RGB 300 Color Changing LED strip light FAQ

Q: What are the top 4 comparing factors to look for before purchasing LED strip lights? 

1. Make sure you know the requirements for your project, then when looking at options, compare lumen output, CCT, and CRI.
2. Compare LED strip size and number of chips on the reel.
3. Understand the wattage and voltage that the LED strip light uses.
4. Make sure that the products have verifiable quality.
To read more details on these top considerations, click here.

Q :What is the importance of UL Listed lighting?

UL is an acronym for the Underwriters Laboratories. They are an independent product safety certification organization. A good summary used by UL is, "a not-for-profit organization dedicated to public safety." This means you can install these LEDs in commercial spaces, industrial applications, and in your home with peace of mind.

Q: How do I install RGB color changing LED strip lights? 

Learn the basics of installing RGB LED strip lighting under counters, connecting them to the controller, mounting and controlling them, here. Consult our design team for extra assistance.

Q: Do you sell your outdoor rated lights by the foot?

No, we do not. We stock out IP65 outdoor rated lights in 16’ lengths. For certain projects, we may be able to produce special lengths for you. Please let us know your requirements. IP68 waterproof strips are available in 16’ lengths that may be special ordered and subject to a one month manufacturing lead time.

Q: What are the recommendations on adhering outdoor-rated strip lights?

All of our outdoor-rated lights come with mounting brackets. The strip also has a 3M adhesive on the back. We recommend using both for the most secure installation. They can also be installed within a mounting channel.

Q: What does IP mean? What is the difference between IP65 and IP68?

This is a rating system that defines the ability of a product to be able to work in different environments. IP is an acronym "Ingress Protection". It is a measurement of the protection an item will have against solid objects (dust, sand, dirt, etc.) and liquids.

An IP rating is comprised of 2 numbers. The first number refers to the protection against solid objects (dust, etc) and the second number refers to protection against liquids. Here is a complete article about IP ratings.

Q: Can I cut reels that are outdoor rated IP65?

Yes. Be sure to reseal the strip light each time it’s cut to prevent water damage.

Q: How flexible are these outdoor strips?

The IP65 is flexible like a measuring tape. Because we use a soft silicone sleeve to make the strip water resistant, it is still very flexible.

Q: How do I install more than one RGB LED strip light to a controller? 

You can use one controller to control multiple runs of the RGB strip lights. This can be achieved by stripping the ends of the wires from multiple runs and connecting them together before inserting them into the RGB controller. Two important things to note here. Make sure you are not exceeding the amperage / wattage maximum of the controller when you are installing multiple runs.

Also, if you are using solderless connectors, make sure that the markings on the strip are used as the guides for polarity and not just the colors of the wire. The colors associated with the polarity markings will change depending on the side of the strip the connector is attached to. Click here for a detailed installation guide. Consult our design team for extra assistance.

Q: Which Power Supply do I need for my (x) feet of LEDs?

The length of LED strip lights of your project will determine the size of the power supply you need. View our power supply chart to find the exact LED power supply you need.
- If you order a 12V LED strip, you will need a 12V power supply and If you order a 24V LED strip, you will need a 24V power supply

Hardwired LED power supplies

Q: What is a 5050 SMD LED chip?

5050 SMD (Surface Mounted Diode) represents the size of the LED chips on the strip. A 5050 SMD chip measures at 5.0mm x 5.0mm. Click here for more information on LED chip sizes. 

Q: Can RGB chips be controlled independently?

No, these strips are not. The entire strip will emit the same color light. You need to use individually-addressable LED chips which are normally found on digital strips. Please contact the design team for more assistance.

Q: Can I hard wire RGB strips into a wall dimmer?

The RGB strips are not compatible with conventional wall dimmers that are designed to be hard wired. We have beautiful and easy to install RGB wireless wall dimmers that are compatible. Please contact the design team for design solutions.

Q: Can I cut the strips myself?

Yes, LED strips are made to be cut to your desired length. Using sharp scissors, you can cut the strip every few inches (on a line that's marked after every third LED). 

Q: What is the maximum run length of RGB 300 strip lights?

This is entirely dependent on the strip’s voltage. For 12v systems then you can run the lights up to 16’ 5” (1 reel). For 24v systems, the run length doubles to 32’ 10” (2 reels). Please contact our design team for help with larger projects.

Q: I am using RGB lighting and want to control them via a DMX controller – are your lights fully controllable?

Yes. Our lights work perfectly well with DMX systems. However, our strips are not individually-addressable. For example, if one chip displays red then all of the other chips will also show red. If you require chasing or independent-control then you will need to use a digital strip.

Q: What is the difference between RGB 150 and RGB 300?

The 150 or 300 directly correspond to the number of LED chips per reel. Twice the amount of light is emitted, thus double the amount of power is also required.
