Breathtaking Difference between Normal and COB LED

In this article, I will be talking about the difference between Normal and COB LED. Making sure that you will have a better understanding and know what to get the next time you went to a LED Lighting shop. As I find most people actually don’t even know that there is such a thing called SMD LED and COB LED.

SMD LED is most widely used today in the LED Markets. Why?

  1. It is able to put 3 different colours, red, green and blue diode on the same chip. (Additional information, When the red, green and blue diode is been put together, it can create any colour) 
Difference between Normal and COB LED


  1. Smaller space occupies but produces the same amount of light source than normal LED.
  2. High-intensity, as the LED Chip, is at close distances.
  3. High-Uniformity, even at close working distances.
  4. Simple design, as only 1 circuit and 2 contacts is needed.
  5. Superior Thermal Performance for increase life, stability and reliability.

In Short,

COB LEDs are the latest and most advanced technology on the market currently. As it is brighter, consume less power and gives out a higher quality beam of light compared to older LED Technologies.

So WHAT is the difference between Normal and COB LED?

  1. Compared to COB LEDs, Normal LEDs have much lesser diodes using the same amount of space available.
  2. COB LEDs can only change the brightness of WHITE Lights, create lights such as Pure, Warm and Neutral White. However, Normal LED Lights can have multiple colours, such as red, purple, orange and etc.
  3. COB LEDs can provide a better Lumen per Watt ratios and heat efficiency. 


Overall, it is important for people to choose LED Lights according to their needs. If you have a limited budget and just want to light up your room, then COB LED Lights would be the best choice for you. If you want your room to look COOL with STYLE, then, by all means, buy SMD LED Lights.

The owner of the shop is very helpful, he was able to provide me with interesting ideas on how to decorate my house with LED Lights for Christmas. I had a very pleasant experience when I visit the shop and I plan to revisit the shop again in the near future when I need some helps from the owner!

The salesman at the shop actually took the time after work to deliver the product that I’ve brought online on Qoo10 to my doorstep immediately after I had made a purchase on the same day. To be honest, I was not expecting it to be this quick even though I needed the product!
