3528 LED 5050 LED and 5630 (5730) LED are the 3 most commonly used surface mount diodes for flex strip lighting. They are traditionally used in mono-lights or RGB flex LED strip lighting.(aff.) As LED technology advances, these 3 types of LED chip are now used for home and commercial lighting to replace compact fluorescent and other incandescent lighting.
Once you see the 3 types of diodes, you can easily tell that the 3528 LED is smaller in size than the 5050 LED. But what most people do not know is this , a 5050 LED actually contains 3 sets of 3528 LED chips inside. So a 5050 LED is actual a combination of 3x 3528 chips in 1.
The 5630 (5730) LED is basically a stretched 5050 LED with a much wider viewing angle. Making the 5630 (5730) LED the brightest of all 3 with the lowest power consumption per watts. The wider angle makes it easy to emit a brighter output with the same wattage.
The same goes for each chip's power consumption, a 3528 LED will consume approximately 0.06 Watt, while a 5050 LED will consume approximately 0.18 Watt of power and a 5630 (5730) consumes about 0.5 Watt.
|LED||Dimensions||Chip Surface Area||Lumen Flux||Power Draw|
|3528 LED||3.5 mm x 2.8 mm||9.8 mm²||6-8 lumens||20-30 mA @ 2.8-3.4 Volts|
|5050 LED||5.0 mm x 5.0 mm||25 mm²||16-22 lumens||60 mA @ 2.8-3.4 Volts|
|5630 (5730) LED||5.6 mm x 3.0 mm||16.8 mm²||45-50 lumens||150 mA @ 2.8-3.4 Volts|
