Can I get more brightness by supplying more voltage to an LED strip?
Can I operate your 12 volt LED strip lights at a higher voltage to get more brightness? For example, can I use a 15 volt power supply to get more intensity?
Our LED strip lights are designed to be used at a specific voltage level (the "rated voltage") and exceeding this voltage level will likely cause damage and lead to premature LED failure. Therefore, a 12 volt LED strip light cannot be operated by any power supply units that exceed a 12 volt output.
The best way to get more brightness from an LED strip installation is to install multiple rows of the LED strip. With twice the number of LED strip rows, you will be able to directly double the amount of brightness.
