Q: Can the LED strips be cut or trimmed?

A: Yes! You can easily cut the ITALUCE LED Strips. Use a utility knife or scissors. The LEDs are wired in groups of 3, so you should cut between sets of 3 LEDs. Note: You can not make any cut between 3 series connected LEDs because they are series connected and any cut will break the string. Before you cut, just make sure you won’t be cutting a power wire, otherwise your LED strip will not work.

Q: Can the cut section of the strip be re-used?

A: Yes! Every ITALUCE LED Strips has a male and a female connector at two end sides. Just choose the proper connector you can use the rest of your cut section. If the rest section has no any connector on it, re-use is also physically possible, but it is not a simple procedure needs some professional experience in soldering. It may not worth doing.

Q: Once cut, is the strip still waterproof?

A: If you cut it in right way, it will still be weather resistance. But to make a cut strip fully waterproof again, we recommend you apply some silicone to the end of strip.

Q: What is the best way to mount ITALUCE LED Strips?

A: We have applied a very strong 3M double sided adhesive mounting tape in the back, but sometimes if you use the strip in fully outdoor environment, we suggest use some wire ties or clip ITALUCE LED Strips to ensure durability.

Q: Do all the controllers and dimmers and connectors go with all the LED lighting strips?

A: Short answer yes, the controllers are meant to go with RGB light strips only, but can work with the single color light strips. Not all the options will be enabled when used with a single color light strip.

Q: What are kelvins and what does “color temperature” mean?

A: The color temperature of a light fixture is a measurement of the amount of yellow or blue in the white light that it produces, since all light falls somewhere on the scale shown below. This measurement is expressed in kelvins; a higher kelvin number means the light is cooler/more blue, and a lower number means that it’s warmer/more yellow.
