Quality identification of led strip lights

1. Look at the solder joint

The regular LED strip light manufacturer's LED light strip is produced by SMT SMT technology, solder paste and reflow soldering process. Therefore, the solder joints on the LED light strip are relatively smooth, and the amount of solder is not much, and the solder joints extend from the FPC pad to the LED electrode in an arc shape.

2. Look at the packaging

The regular LED strip light will be packaged with anti-static reel, generally 5 meters a roll or 10 meters a roll, and then the outside is sealed with anti-static and moisture-proof packaging bag. The Shanzhai version of the LED strip light will save cost, and use the recycling reel, and then there is no anti-static and moisture-proof packaging bag. If you look at the reel carefully, you can see that there are traces and scratches left when removing the label on the surface.

3. Look at the label

Regular LED strip light with packaging bags and reels will have printed labels, not printed labels. The label of the copycat version is printed, and the specifications and parameters are not unified.

4. Look at the cleanliness of LED strip light surface

If SMT process is used to produce LED strip light, its surface cleanliness is very good, no impurities and stains can be seen. However, if hand welding process is used to produce the Shanzhai version LED light strip, no matter how to clean the surface, there will be residual stains and cleaning traces, at the same time, there will be residual flux and tin slag on the surface of FPC.
