SMD LED Comparison

SMD LED has many types,which are produced in a variety of shapes and sizes,the most common types of LEDs are: 2835,3528,3020,3030,3535,3014,4014,5050,5060,5730.
Which LED is the brightest? The current and wattage of each type?



Below SMD LED Chart show you the comparison of each type:


Let’s see the table of content:


As you can see, different SMD LED Type has different current and lumen.

You can easily calculate the brightness and the power of LED light through above LED Chart.
This chart for the various types of LED’s and their correct lumens. The LED technology is developing, the data may be changed in near future, please put in your bookmark, we will update the latest technic information, or we warmly welcome you to contact us for the detail information, we are always glad to help.

What is SMD LED?

SMD stands for Surface Mounted Device, SMD LED is a package type of LED produced by using surface-mount technology (SMT) to mount LED chips on printed circuit boards (PCB).


SMD LED has many types,which are produced in a variety of shapes and sizes,the most common types of LEDs are: 2835, 3528, 3020, 3030, 3535, 3014, 4014, 5050, 5060, 5730. The number indicate the chip size, for example, 2835 is for the chip size 28×35 µm

SMD LED Features

High Brightness

Based on the same power consumption, SMD LED produce the highest brightness among other types of LED packages such as COB, MCOB or High Power LEDs. In other words, the light efficiency of SMD LED is the highest and the best.

Better For Thermal Management

The SMD LED produce very little heat while has relatively high output lumen, because of it is driven by a low voltage and current. Unlike the high power LED or COB, which usually produce much more heat at just one point, it is difficult to conduct the heat, SMD LED can be placed separately among the light body, and can be designed as a light surface with many LEDs.

SMD LED performs better in thermal management, in a result that the rate of light decay is much lower and make the initial brightness (output lumen) stay in a longer time.

Competitive Price

It is no doubt that SMD LED is much lower in price than COB or High Power LED, that’s one of the important reason more and more light fixture adopt SMD type.

Wide Application

SMD LED have been a very important development for the LED industry because of the ability to put 3 diodes on the same chip. When a chip includes a red, green, and blue diode, you have a chip that can create any color you want by adjusting the level of output from each individual diode on the chip. Because they are very bright and can change colors, these chips are used extensively for all kinds of LED lights.

The small sizes of SMD LED can be made for LED bulb, strips, spotlights, and high power industrial lights such as high bay light, flood light, etc.

Application of SMD LED

SMD LED is the most popular LED type nowadays. It is commonly applied in both commercial and residential LED lighting products.
