With the advancement of technology and the change of lifestyle, everyone wants to enjoy a movie-like experience at home, office or any entertainment venue. For them, the best choice is to use single color LED neon lights. RGB LED strip lights are becoming more and more popular due to their energy-saving characteristics, ability to produce bright colors (red, green and blue), excellent brightness, and flexible use in homes and offices.

Neon lights are derived from the English "neon light", that is, "neon light". The word "neon" is actually the transliteration of "neon", and people have already used "neon light" as a special word.
The development of neon lights can be traced back to the British physicist and chemist Faraday’s research on gas discharge. When the current passes through a gas containing a small amount of positive and negative ions, it is affected by ultraviolet rays, cosmic rays, and trace radioactive substances under the action of a sufficiently high applied voltage After moving and colliding with neutral gas molecules, the neutral molecules are ionized, so the number of ions doubles. When the current passes through the gas, it is accompanied by the phenomenon of light emission, the so-called glow discharge. The luminous color varies with the inflated body. Faraday's theory and his experimental achievements laid a solid foundation for the development of neon technology.
Neon lights originated in France. The lamp body glass tube used at that time had a diameter of 45 mm. The glass tube was first bent into the required text or pattern, and then a transformer with a voltage of more than 10,000 volts was used to supply power to make it glow. At that time, the electrodes at both ends of the lamp tube were made of graphite and filled with nitrogen or carbon dioxide gas. The former would glow red and the latter would glow white.
Neon lights rely on the electrodes at both ends of the light to ignite the rare gas in the tube under a high-voltage electric field. It is different from ordinary light sources that must burn tungsten filaments to a high temperature to emit light, causing a large amount of electrical energy to be consumed in the form of heat. , With the same amount of electricity, the neon lights have a higher outdoor lighting decoration.
Neon lights are made of glass tubes. After firing, the glass tubes can be bent into any shape with great flexibility. By choosing different types of tubes and filling them with different inert gases, the neon lights can get colorful and multi-colored light. Because the neon lamp is a cold cathode glow discharge, the life of a qualified neon lamp can reach 20,000--30000 hours.
Weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, trade shows, sporting events, art installations, music festivals-can all benefit from illuminated signage. Traditional glass neon lights can be used, but usually not due to size, weight, fragility and cost, let alone installation requirements. On the other hand, LED signs are very durable, lightweight and easy to transport. Coupled with the lower price point of LED flexible signs, coupled with the fact that you only need to hang them up and plug them into a power source, they are a great choice for event signs.
