LED strip lights are very attractive and appealing for those who love the clean brightness that LED lights provide because they do a great job in outfitting your car in the best way possible. When it comes to all good things, there are a few dos and don'ts on how you should treat your new LED lights. Treat the LED strip gently so it can last for a long time and keep making heads turn. The only thing that should be on your mind when it comes to showing off your LED is how many people are going to be asking you where you got it, as opposed to you having to worry if your LED lights burned out or if you snapped your strip too hard. These simple steps can really help your LED lights last as long as they possibly can, and more. Like all LED lights, these LED lights have the capability of lasting a long time as well as look great, so the least you can do is not treat them so harshly to preserve their lifespan.
DOs: The LED strips are flexible so they can be bent accordingly, within its limits of course. The strips can be bent no less than 90 degrees; you don't want to snap them in half and break the circuits now. They're great to trace as a border around your headlights because of the smooth and curved surface. You would have to know the limits of these LED strips so you don't somehow bend them awkwardly or anything. When you bend the strip, the radius must be more than 20 degrees before you risk damaging them. As a car enthusiast, that's probably the last thing you want to do.
DON'Ts: The LED strips may be flexible, but that doesn't mean that they can be abused either. Don't bend the LED at an extremely sharp angle or bend them horizontally, as these should be a given. While it may not be like the world is going to end if you somehow snapped your LED light strip, it's still somewhat of a hassle to replace so it's better not to test the strip's limits. These harsh actions may damage your new strip's circuit board and will result in the whole strip failing to light up. Imagine the embarrassment of being at an intersection with a half-lit set of awesome strip lights and treat these LED strips right!
