The 6 best LED light bars of 2023 (2023)


Best overall light strip

Nexlux 16.4ft Wireless Kit

Enabled by application:Sim, Wi-Fi |Brightness, lux:598


Robust, rubber-coated construction.

WiFi ready and app controlled


not the brightest

White mode is on the "cool" side

ONexlux 16.4ft Wireless Kitit performs the best in our test, ranking #1 in almost every metric. We like them for their sturdy, rubber-encased construction and WiFi-linked app. Nexlux doesn't claim their lights are outdoor ready, but the rubber coating over the connections and LEDs certainly provides confidence in their durability. It's probably a good idea to keep them out of the water. The app or remote can be used to change colors, fade speed or blink frequency over the internet from anywhere in the world.

Other lights we've tested are brighter and whiter than theNEXLUX. We recommend these lights for their colorful accent lighting, not their neutral lighting. That said, unless you rank them up against a better competitor (which we did), you probably won't notice much of a deficiency in terms of whiteness or brightness. Few, if any, real-world strip light installations will have different products immediately next to each other, and alone, we think you'll be satisfied with this model.

Best bang for the buck

No application connection

short power cord

O16.4ft Daybetter Kit with Remotedefault is an affordable and easy to use option. With a simple setup and minimal components, this is a nice plug-and-play option. Among the products we tested, Daybetter is one of the cheapest. For simple accent lighting around your home, it's hard to do better than this Daybetter.

To take advantage of the savings, he makes some concessions. The power cord is less than half the length of some other options, limiting your installation options. EITHERBetter dayThe white mode of the also emits a bluer light than most. In comparative and objective tests, we have found this product to be less glossy than most of the competition. However, for casual accent lighting, these differences may not be as apparent.

big remote

OMinger 16,4 pésthe string lights fall right into the middle of the pack. Offering decent performance at a reasonable price, it's hard to go wrong with these lights. They are brighter than average, but the white mode is less white than the others. The power cord is longer than average, which is a plus. It might not seem like a big deal, but when you want to take advantage of the quick and discreet installation of these products, you don't want to spoil the look by adding a suitable extension cable.

These lights appear to come from the same manufacturer as the Govee lights. The box they came in says "Minger" on the outside. However, on the inside, all the instructional materials say "Govee". The Minger light components we have don't say Govee or Minger on them. Very few light strip components (each consists of strip, power cord, control box, app, remote control) of any brand have markings written on them. Interestingly, the Govee lights we review below are some of the only ones that feature branding on the components.

Enabled by application:No |Brightness, lux:603


incredibly bright

simple designs


only white light

No Bluetooth features

OArmacost 421500 lightingprovides up to 16 feet of "warm white" light. This is the only single-color light kit we've ever reviewed; this specialization, however, paid off. These lights are bright, radiant and add a nice warmth to any room. While white is the only color setting, the brightness settings are highly variable, allowing you to dim them down to 10% brightness. Easy to install and with no complicated technology to learn, you can have these lights up and running in just moments after unpacking.

Oarmacostlights do not support Bluetooth; given the modern world we live in, this might be a detractor for some. We found the small included remote to be more than adequate for controlling these lights with the limited color spectrum. They are ideal for anyone looking for a simple way to add bright white light to any of their spaces.

bad instructions

wrong tape included

OL8Star Smart Color Changing Ropeit offers the brightest bulbs of any of the lights we tested and was the most effective at syncing up with music. We tested the brightness of four of the individual LEDs in each strip with a digital light meter. They were all tested at the same time, against a bright background and in a dimly lit room. The L8Star turned it on at 660 Lux and matched the beat of the music to the flashing lights (via a smartphone app). You can play music through the app or use your smartphone's microphone to follow the beat, and the app will make the lights flash and flash to the beat.

The standalone remote is small and limited in what it can do, especially compared to app controls. The instructions are poorly translated and don't inspire much confidence. We were able to get everything to work, mainly thanks to the intuitive app. It is not complicated to install and assemble strip lights, but the instructions did not help much. At 55 inches, the supplied cable is slightly below average and shorter than many installations require.

Good for lighting large spaces.

Nexillumi 65,5 pies ultralargo

Enabled by application:Sim |Brightness, lux:410


extra long length

app enabled


The power cord is obnoxiously long.

Brilliant in the middle of the road

ONexillumi 65,5 pies ultralargoit provides more than enough length to illuminate even the largest spaces. This kit not only comes with 65.6 feet of LED lights, but its power cord also has a reach of over nine feet, really maximizing the length you can get out of this system. The lighting system is smartphone compatible, allowing you to control settings from your phone, the supplied remote, or the controls built into the power cord. The lights have eight different dimming settings and can sync their pulsing and dimming to music.

Depending on your needs, the length of the power cord and lights may be excessive. If you want to light up a small space, having to manage more than ten feet of power cord can be cumbersome and make your space look cluttered. This kit is ideal for anyone looking to light up a large open space.

White mode is very white.


generic application

O16.4ft Wi-Fi DayBetterThe option is a completely revamped version of its "standard" model. The WiFi version, as the name suggests, can be controlled via a mobile app. With a home internet connection and a smartphone, the lights can be controlled from anywhere you have mobile data. Rubberized light strips are certainly more durable than non-reinforced alternatives. In our head-to-head tests, we found the DayBetter WiFi to be brighter and whiter than most.

Our main complaint with this model is the creepiness, which is only 44 inches. A short power cord can be quite limiting in terms of where you can install these lights. Additionally, if you choose to trade theseBetter daylights without the app, its included infrared remote has limited controls.

The 58-inch power cord is a bit shorter than average, but it's sufficient for most installations. When comparing the white modes, LE is right in the middle.

Our main complaint with theLE RGBis that your remote is misprogrammed or mislabeled. The blue and green buttons on the remote change the lights to the opposite color. Press the green button and you will get blue lights and vice versa. Other iterations of the same make and model may not have this problem; you can limit yourself entirely to the product we tested.

Ointelligentit is an easy to use kit that conveniently provides three different methods of controlling the device. It is fully Bluetooth compatible, allowing you to operate it from an app on your smart device. It also has a small remote that gives you a good amount of control, and the power cord has a built-in controller that has minimal functionality but gets the job done. The lights can be synced to music, giving you simple yet fun light shows.

These LED strips are not the brightest, but they are a good solution for ambient or backlighting. While the 16.5-foot range doesn't cover an entire room, it's enough to keep you entertained. If you're looking for easy-to-use lights with multiple control options, this might be a good choice.

Why you should trust us

GearLab Long Time Reviewerjediah wearled the charge for rating strip lights in this review. Jed has been with us since 2013 and has tested hundreds of products. He'll appreciate your attention to detail when it comes to comparing and examining light strips. He consulted with a team that included colleagues working in home offices, a professional artist, and a passionate interior decorator. Jed was helped byBuck yedor, whose affinity for fun home decor and keen ability to explain electronics to even their elderly parents will help you weigh the pros and cons of these LED light strips.

We buy all tested products and carry out comprehensive and comparative tests on all of them. We have done this for many years and many different products. The specific testing regimen we employed for the LED strips included in-home installations of each product, side-by-side comparisons of brightness (using a smartphone light meter app), whiteness (assessed subjectively, by comparison), and a set of dimensional measurements.

Analysis and test results.

We evaluated the light strip in three different categories. The sum of a product's performance on these scoring metrics is its overall quality.

The 6 best LED light bars of 2023 (36)

to control

Control is multifaceted. Many want the accent lighting provided by LED strips to come in different colors with adjustable brightness and change/flicker rates. You want to control these various modes in a clear and direct way. In our tests, we found that controlling your lights with an app was easier and more functional than any of the supplied remotes. A wide range of brightness settings is really nice, and sometimes you don't want your accent light to have any color. Colored LED strips can be set to "white" mode, but not all white modes are created equal. Whiter white modes are better. While not a crucial component for most people, we like light strips with the ability to sync to music. For home security purposes, we also like being able to remotely turn our lights on and off via Wi-Fi.

Our favorite products, unsurprisingly, had the most simplified controls. the best scoreLED NexLuxlight has a smart app that works with WiFi from anywhere in the world. Music sync works fine; white mode isn't the best, but it's close. The darkest setting is barely brighter than a candle, while the brightest is above average - there's plenty of brightness range in the NexLux. Another prominent artist, theL8Star Smart LED, it is quite similar to NexLux. The L8Star has an app, but it's not connected to Wi-Fi, which compromises usability a bit.

The 6 best LED light bars of 2023 (37)

While app control is ideal, having the option to use your lights without WiFi or needing to download an app is a welcome feature. EITHERVilla Pangton LEDStrip Lights offer the most exceptional control of any non-app-enabled light strip. There are ten levels of brightness and the white mode is one of the brightest.


The brightness of the lights may be important, but it's probably not the most important thing. Most installation scenarios are to accent and enhance existing lighting. However, there are situations where you may want maximum illumination from your trailing lights. We found noticeable (although not significant) variation in the brightness of the strip lights tested. The brightest will do some tasks that only the darkest could not.

The 6 best LED light bars of 2023 (38)

We tested the gloss in two ways. We conducted a light meter test (using a smartphone light meter app) confirmed by a subjective side-by-side comparison. In only two cases, when the lights were very, very close together on the light meter, did our "blind" subjective tester have trouble classifying them in a way that matched the light meter results.

The strips themselves came in two different main forms: coated and uncoated. They look the same, except the coated versions feature a bead of clear rubber material that covers the LEDs and associated wiring while reinforcing the backing tape. Uncoated types have their own open LEDs. At first, we thought uncoated LEDs would be brighter without the interference of a cover. Our tests found just the opposite. The two coated products (NexluxmiDayBetter Wi-Fi) are among the three brightest in our test.

the uncoatedL8Star Smart LEDit's the brightest we've ever tested. The next brightest uncoated grade isVila Pangton. OarmacostThe kit offered the brightest, truest white light when it came to pure white light.

Ease of use/installation

Installing and configuring these products taught us a few key facts about what makes quality LED strips and what doesn't. Rubberized products are easier to work with and a good "flat" double sided tape is important. Foam-filled double-sided tape doesn't work either. The longer the power cord, the better. Bad or poorly translated instructions only complicate things, especially if there is an app to configure.

The 6 best LED light bars of 2023 (40)

OL8 Starit worked great but was a pain to use and set up. The instructions were hard to decipher, and the foam-filled tape was less sticky than others and left residue on furniture, cabinets, and trim. the gummedDayBetter Wi-FimiNexLuxthey were easier to use and work with than the uncoated versions. The uncoated versions have ridges that can catch on things during installation and feel much more vulnerable and brittle to install and use.

The 6 best LED light bars of 2023 (41)


In researching and testing these products, we noticed significant similarities between the brands. We tried a variety of products from different brands. Each product is made up of four main components, including the strip itself, a controller, a power cord, and a remote control. Some also have an app.

The 6 best LED light bars of 2023 (42)

In the entire set, only one of the remotes shows the stamped mark. The rest of the fleet uses one of two different sizes of remote controls, both with similar layout cues, fonts, and button layouts. Each remote could control at least some aspect of another light strip. For example, the off button on a remote control can change the color of the strip to a different brand. The two strips from the same brand also used different remote controls.

The light strips look identical in most of the test selection. Even rubber coated strips look the same as uncoated strips, except for the clear rubber coating. The etched markings on the power cords are quite unique from product to product and very rarely match the markings on the light strip itself. The "dongle" wired controller receives the signal from the app or remote control and manages the light colours, flicker and brightness. Both Wi-Fi-ready products use the exact same controller, while the Minger LED light strip comes with Govee-branded instructions.

We list all these details to point out that there seems to be crossover between the brands. We also look at different equipment on different models of the same brand. We can't be sure, but given cross-pollination, we have to assume that some of these components may change in different production runs of the same make and model. We did notice small performance differences between what we tested, but no big variances. None of these products is very expensive, and to keep costs down, we expect the market, supplies, and quality control to fluctuate significantly. It seems quite likely that two or more brands are using the same components.
