A LED 3528 unable to display only a single color LED RGB 3528 Ribbon is actually a succession of red, green and blue LED. If we choose one of these 3 colors on the remote control, only LED on 3 lights, if we chose the intermediate colors, it will combine 1, 2 or 3 primary colors simultaneously but without creating shades of colors. This is why we called it Christmas Ribbon because it’s fun but does not replace a true Ribbon RGB 5050.This range of ribbons LED 3528 is dedicated to small (racks, closets indoor) lighting but is not lighting atmosphere or parts. Ribbons LED 3528 consume little electricity (4.8w / m) and their LED bulbs are attractive, according to Listofledlights.
