SK6812 LED Strip Compare with Other Addressable LED Strips

  • SK6812 vs WS2812B

On most occasions, the SK6812 LED strip can almost completely replace the WS2812B LED strip. There are two biggest differences between SK6812 and WS2812B:
1. SK6812 has a wider color range, including RGB, RGBW, WWA, and single white. But WS2812B is usually only RGB.
2. Compared with WS2812B, SK6812 has almost no voltage drop.

Here is an article that analyzes the differences and similarities between SK6812 and WS2812B in detail, please click to view.

WS2812B VS SK6812 LED chip
  • WS2815 vs SK6812

The most significant advantage of the SK6812 LED strip over the WS2815 is its broader color range. It can produce more colors than the WS2815, offering superior color mixing and enhanced flexibility for crafting custom color schemes. We have written a comparison article and made a comparison table to show the differences between SK6812 and WS2815, go and get a clear understanding now!

ws2815 led vs sk6812 led
  • TM1814 vs SK6812

The most obvious difference between TM1814 and SK6812 is that the TM1814 is an external IC and SK6812 is a built-in IC. Besides, TM1814 usually supports DC12V and 24V LED strips while SK6812 only supports DC5V LED strips.

After 15 years of development, we have developed into a company integrating production and trade, and have won the trust and support of customers from all over the world with high-quality products and high-quality services.

Our Addressable LED light strips have the following main advantages:

  1. PCB thickness: SuntechLite uses 0.25mm and 0.35mm PCB for our regular strip lights. (The thickness of the general PCB on the market is 0.2mm.) The thicker the PCB board, the greater the current flowing, and the higher the efficiency of the light strip.
  2. High-quality Resistors: Authentic Guarantee, Antioxidant. DC12v LED strip generally uses 0.8mm*0.5mm resistors, DC24v LED strip generally uses 1.2mm*0.6mm resistors. This makes the strips have good heat dissipation, high temperature resistance, and very stable.
  3. Dual capacitor design: Dual capacitor design can protect the IC, and the signal transmission is stable.
  4. Firm light strip connection: Tin is added to the connection of the light strip, which is convenient for welding after cutting. The solder joints are full, and there will be no false welding.

Besides, we have a specialized engineering team to offer technical support and assistance with the installation and programming of the LED strips. And you can feel free to contact us if any questions in the using process.
