20 Watt White LED Tape
3528 SMD, 240 LEDs Per Metre
Availability: In Stock for next day delivery
With an impressive 240 SMDs mounted on each metre of PCB, this thin and flexible white LED strip light gives you a fantastically smooth light-wash effect on any surface. It can be used with our shallow-recess aluminium extrusions (just 7mm in depth) for even smoother diffusion.
10mm wide and twice as bright as 10-watt LED tape, this tape is ideal for use as general or ‘working light’. It draws 19.2w to output up to 1920 lumens (per metre), with a life of 50,000 hours’ continuous use.
Like all of our strip lighting range, InStyle’s 20-watt white 240-LED tape is available in standard 5m reels. You can cut it to the nearest 25mm for all your projects. Or we can cut and solder your order to any length you need. For bathrooms, exterior projects and other locations where resistance to water is required, our 20-watt LED strips can be supplied to IP67 standards – fully protected against dust and the effects of immersion.

Fully compatible with these LED controllers
When looking to use white LED lighting you may think it would be a very simple choice to choose as there is only one option…white?
Wrong; there are actually different various shades of white to choose from.
The 3 main shade descriptions of whites are:
- Warm White (also known as soft white) – being described as warm white does not mean that it is warm to touch, the warm is actually describing the shade of white the LED lights up. Warm white tends to be a slightly yellow/brown in colour just like your standard halogen light bulbs. Warm white tends to be used to give a warm, homely feel. The technical specification of warm white is anything from 2700k – 3200k (lower being warmer)
- Pure White (also known as daylight white, commercial white, bright white) – this is the closest resemblance to daylight white, it tends not to have any yellow (warm) or blue (cool) tint to it. This is used in commercial applications and also to highlight areas; it is generally brighter than warm white. On the kelvin scale pure white would be anything from 4500k to 6000k (lower being warmer)
- Cool White – this white is used the least out of the 3 as it is generally too ‘cool’ (blue tint) for commercial and general use. However it is the brightest white and can be used to highlight areas. It still looks very white and the blue tint is extremely faint. This is great to create a cool, crisp feel. On the kelvin scale this would be 6500k+
For more information, see our support page explaining all your white LED tape options.
Be aware that higher-power LED strips are less flexible than lower-power ones. This is because the LED modules are placed closer together on high-power strips, and require wider PCBs (for more heat dispersal).
For more info and examples, check out our support page.
To work out what transformer you require this is quite simple. You take the amount of LED tape you have in metres and x this by the wattage of the LED tape you have, again per metre.
For example 12m of 19.2w LED tape: 12 x 19.2w = 230.4w Therefore you would require a 300w transformer.
For more information, see our support page on LED power supplies and their output.
This LED tape can be dimmed in various ways.
One option is with our dimmable power supplies: we have 24v transformers in 30w and 100w versions. These can then be dimmed off a standard TRIAC wall dimmer (standard in households).
We also have TRIAC dimmable receivers; these go in-between the transformer and the LED strip. For our 20-watt tape, choose a 24v version, which is ideal for larger projects that use larger transformers such as the 320w.
Another option is our 0-10v receivers. They go in-between the transformer and the LED tape and can be linked to such systems as Lutron.
We also have the option to dim via DMX. We have DMX receivers available to work with DMX desks and systems to allow you to fully dim as required. Again these go in-between the transformers and LED tape and can be linked together to dim all the receivers at once.
For more information, see our support page comparing options for LED dimming.
InStyle LED manufacture and supply commercial-grade LED strip lights – which means our products are high quality and built to last, using only premium components and branded LEDs:
- Brighter LEDs
- Vibrant and consistent colours
- Accurate life expectancy
- Sturdy PCBs
- Excellent resistor management

Deciding on which wattage you require is all down to what kind of application you are fitting the LED tape in.
The 5w and 10w is ideal to be used as feature lighting. Lighting to highlight areas, as a secondary lighting. Ideal for covings, drop down ceilings signage etc. to give a smooth halo effect. The 10w would be preferred to the 5w for these applications if there is a high amount of ambient lighting.
The 15w and 20w is ideal to be used as general lighting or as feature lighting for areas larger than covings etc. For example washing down front bars / back bars / under kitchen cabinet lighting as ‘working light’.
