The difference between RGB, RGBW and RGBCCT LED Strip Light

RGB strip lights have opened the door to creative and colorful LED installations. These LED strips give customers a wide range of customizable colors for totally unique lighting installations. This paper explains the differences between RGB, RGBW and RGBCCT LED strips.

RGB LED Strip Light

RGB LED strips have three color channels. RGB strips can mix the three primary colors to produce light of any color, including white. It’s just that the white light may contain traces of other colors. In other words, this white light is not pure white light and its CRI is very poor. Inferior whites are not friendly to the human eye and are not suitable for long-term use.

RGBW LED Strip Light

The RGBW LED strip has four color channels, including white. In addition to colored light, high-quality white is also important in certain applications. As a result, a white-light emitting chip was added to the three-color RGB chip, and the 4-in-1 RGBW strip was born. Here, the white chips can be warm white, neutral white or cool white.

In addition to the four-in-one chip, the RGBW strip light has a dual-LED chip design with a white LED paired with each RGB diode, also known as an RGB+W LED strip.

The difference between a 4-in-1 RGBW LED strip light and an RGB+W LED strip light is that the RGBW LED strip can have a higher density than the RGB+W LED strip.

In short, the RGBW strip light can be chosen to emit only pure white light, which has the function of monochromatic white light. In addition, RGBW LED strips can also mix colored light with white light, making the mixed colors richer and bolder, creating more vibrant colors.

RGBCCT LED Strip Light

The RGBCCT LED strip is based on RGB color chips plus two different types of white chips (warm white and cool white) to form a 5-in-1 LED node. In addition to all the features of RGB and RGBW LED strips, it also has the function of tunable white LED strips, which can produce white light of CCT, such as 2700K, 3000K, 6000K, 6500K or any color temperature in between.


RGB, RGBW and RGBCCT LED strip lights are available in two different types of LED strips, SMD and COB, and you can choose the one that best suits your project. We support a one-stop solution. You can purchase other products and accessories besides the strip lights in COXO, such as LED connectors, LED controllers, LED neon lights, LED profile channels, and LED power supplies.
