Magic RGB Auto Fade Million Color Changing LED - 12V Prewired FAQs

RGB Color Changing LED
Q: I looked at some of the questions, but don.t know how long its been since then, but has this been tested and is considered now waterproof? - by Karl (United States)
A: It is splash proof, not waterproof. Even if you submerge it in water, it'd probably still work for a while though. But it is not intended to be submerged.
Q: Can the colors be controlled , where I can pick which color I want? Is there a product that oznium sells where I can control it and change the colors to what I want when I want? - by singh (ohio)
A: These LEDs are designed to cycle automatically without needing a controller. There is no way to sync the color fade together. Some people actually find this to be a benefit since they like the effect of multiple LEDs, all doing different things.

If you require million color / rgb LEDs to sync together, you need to go with an LED that has 4 wires (for 1 common positive, red negative, green negative, and blue negative), then just hook up the wires from all your LEDs to the same controller.

One example of an a million color / rgb LED with 4 wires would be our pre-wired surface mount LED
Q: do you carry the 12v battery holder that's in the video? oravecphotographydotcom - by Stephen (Mount Joy, PA)
A: Yes, it is the 23A pictured here: https://www.oznium.com/install-bay/12v-led-battery-holder
Q: Is there a way to get a technical information page on this product? I'd like to see all the numbers. :) - by L.D. (Dallas, TX)
A: Sorry, we don't really have any tech info for this product. Exactly which numbers are you looking for?
Q: Are these dimmable with the PWM controller? Based on what PWM is, I'd suspect not (likely reset the fade circuit each time). Is there an easy method for dimming them? I'd love to be able to control them with something like the "Touch Control LED Dimmer", or that Rotary PWM Dimmer (which has escaped from the controller page but can still be found elsewhere).
A: The Rotary and Touch Dimmers work with these lights.
Assume pretty much any PWM will work too.
Q: Could I power these with a 12v wall outlet, if so, how would I go about doing that? - by James
A: You mean a 120v wall outlet? The LEDs are already 12v, so if you happen to have a wall outlet that puts out 12VDC, then you can just hook it up straight to that.
But if you have a normal wall outlet that puts out 120VAC, then simply plug in one of our AC Adapters, and wire the LEDs to the AC Adapter.
Q: I would like to wire several in series do you sell these without resisters? - by James
A: We don't, but if you just need a few, how about removing the resistors? Or if you can order about 1000 pieces, we can sell you a batch without resistors.
Q: What kind of resistor should be used? - by Josh (Louisiana)
A: No resistor needed. "The resistor is also pre-wired inline, saving you tedious soldering time. "
Q: Just to let you know, I realize you can't advertise these as waterproof but I've run some underwater for days with no effect.

Well, other than a really pretty bathtub ;)

Thanks for a great selection of products -- super happy with what I have so far and will be ordering more.
A: Fantastic. Thanks!
Q: I'm new to doing my own LED lighting. I'm planning on wiring 3 of these in parallel with a superflux 4-chip on the same circuit. Might I run into problems with this configuration? - by Greg
A: No problems. Hook up all the positives together and then all the negatives together.
Q: How many mA do one of these LEDs consume? - by David (Abbotsford, BC, Cana)
A: Approx. 20-25 mA.
Q: Can one 9v battery light up one led and for how long? - by Claude (Lasalle, Canada)
A: Yes, an hour. These need 12 V though.
Q: are these by any chance waterproof? - by alec (College Place , WA)
A: We have not tested these in water.
Q: Can anything be done at all so that they change to the same colors?
A: These LEDs are designed to cycle automatically without needing a controller. There is no way to sync the color fade together. Some people actually find this to be a benefit since they like the effect of multiple LEDs, all doing different things.

If you require million color / rgb LEDs to sync together, you need to go with an LED that has 4 wires (for 1 common positive, red negative, green negative, and blue negative), then just hook up the wires from all your LEDs to the same controller.

One example of an a million color / rgb LED with 4 wires would be our pre-wired surface mount LED
Q: In the video, the LED's seem to 'pause' on certain colors. What colors do they pause on?
A: They are not necessary pausing on a color or colors. The main colors on the RGB color changing LED are Red, Green, Blue. It may look like it is pausing, but those are the brightest and main colors.
Q: How long can an A23 battery power 5 of the LED's? - by Josh (Alabama)
A: About 12 hours.
Q: Are these available "loose" - if we do not need them pre-wired? - by Matthew (Bakersfield, CA)
A: Nope, but you could cut off the wiring if you'd like.
Q: So they can run on just 3 volts safely without a resister. - by Derek (Oklahoma)
A: We have not tested them without the resistor. We do not know if it is 3 or 4 volts.
Q: how long is the wire on these individual LEDS - by alec (College Place , WA)
A: About a foot
Q: If I wanted to have the exact same setup as the video, do I wire the LEDs in series or parallel?
A: It doesn't really make sense to wire them in series. Each one is designed for 12 volts, so give each one 12 volts by wiring in parallel.
Q: Can one 23A Battery hook up only power 5 LEDs?
A: Yes.
Q: Does this product include everything you see in the video?
A: If you buy a quantity of "1", you will get 1 color changing LED. The video shows 4 LEDs as well as a battery and battery holder.

So if you want 4 LEDs, you should buy a quantity of "4".

And if you want the battery and battery holder, you should buy those separately too.
