The MicroNova 5V RGB LEDs are intense. In color, in size, in WOW factor. At 198 LEDs per meter (that's ~2 per cm, or 5 per inch), this flexible strip packs more lighting effects per length than any other LED strip!
The larger 3 watt RGB LEDs are very bright and colorful, but if you don't get the power just right - POOF! Now your RGB is R(nothin')B. The Star Controller tames this LED so you can power it up with 5 to 12V and use any regular 5V signal to control each channel.
