Thumbs up 100% Waterproof LED Strips with 12pcs of 5-5050 SMD LEDs starting at $12.95 each!

Xenith Xenons is happy to announce a new product to their LED product lineup, waterproof LED strips for interior and exterior applications! Here are some of the features you can come to expect from these LED strips:

*Extremely soft and flexible, these LED strips will fit anywhere you need them to
*Each LED strip has 3M double-sided on the back for easy application
*All LED strips come with special male/female connection points to allow hassle-free installation and future linkage if necessary.
*Each LED strip is approximately 12 inches long and has 12 pieces of 5050 SMD LEDs, the brightest LEDs available on a strip.
*Installation is a breeze and can be done in minutes. Simply attach the LED strip to the surface and run the wire through to the power source.
*Can be cut to fit smaller areas for a total of 4 possible sizes (3, 6, 9, and 12 LEDs). It is important to ONLY cut in groups of 3 LEDs to retain proper circuitry.
*Available in white, red, blue, amber, and green.
*1-year warranty on all defective strips w/ free replacements


We don't have any photos of the LED strips installed in any vehicles just yet but here are some photos of the product:















We'll do our best to get more photos for you guys but rest assured that the quality is what you'd expect from Xenith Xenons.


The price for a single LED strip is $12.95. Shipping will be around $2 for USPS First Class Mail


We will be adding more photos as we obtain them from our customers. Please stay tuned! If you're interested in getting a set for your car and can submit some photos for us, please contact us for a discount

Morning. I have a question about your side marker LED lights. Are they like the concept LED side markers? or just LED lights?

They are LED bulbs that replace your existing halogen bulbs.

If anyone is looking to test a set of these LED strips for us, let us know and we'll set something up for you. We will need some photos and a mini-review of your experience with the LED strips, and in return we'll send them to you free of cost!

Thank you for your interest. We're actually talking with a few members and past customers regarding this. When we're finalized with them, we'll take a look at what else we need and if anything, we'll send you a PM . Thanks again for your interest!

A lot of people wire them to the dome light so when the dome light turns on/off, the LED strip follows suit. I'm not 100% sure on the installation details and all the various methods of wiring it up, but there are a few members who have already purchased them and hopefully we can find out some more. We're also sending out some pairs to past customers to get some feedback.

You can run it off a switch if you want as well.

That actually plugs into some car's with that specific connector. In most applications out there, a lot of people just snip the round connector off and use the bare wires for scotch locking.

Here are some pics with the 'red' 12-LED strips installed (mock-up install... not permanent yet) as footwell lights. Whats great about these is that they are a PERFECT match for the "orange" ABL, and they are VERY VERY bright! I tried ALOT of different footwell options with various LEDs that I've bought, and this one looks the best so far. The LEDs are the easiest by far to install and handle.

The Dome light is also one of the "white" LEDs from Xenith, seen in the first pic.

I will also likely be using the 'white' strip for trunk lighting... more pics to come once i do some more experimenting.

The very last pic is rather blurry because I kept the shutter open 3 seconds to give you an idea of relative brightness to the other lighting. In person, they are very comfortable and not distracting.

Wow, looks great! You did an amazing job. Can't wait to see what other locations you have in mind

I love these strips, man! Here are a few pics of me playing around with various placements... the great thing about these is that its VERY easy to use some masking tape to get them in a "test spot" and the lines that they run with these have a 12vDC female adapter plug making it easy to use a 12vDC adapter to test various locations before you ever tinker with the wiring in the car.

Here are a few pics of what I used to do some mock-ups using the XenithXenons strips:
