i have started small production line and now i have to stop using LED strips (ineffective, expensive, low quality,...) and am palnning ot make my custom pcb for leds. Currently i use 5050 RGB led strip.
I have 1.7meter of LED PCB which totals to 100x 5050 SMD RGB LED bulb, for 1 finished product. After all the calculations i have done, the LED bulbs looks like they will consist 70-90% of total PCB cost. I will be needing around 10.000 to 40.000 of SMD LED BULBS.
So now i am looking at all sites i usually use to buy components (Farnell, Mouser, Digikey, Arrow, ...) and prices there are around 10times higher then similar items on Alibaba, Gearbest and so on. So i wonder if anyone knows of a site with office or branch in Europe, where i could get SMD LED RGB bulbs (dont even have to be 5050s, anyones whit similar performance and size will do) whit prices similar to those on the majority of chinese sites?
Thanks in advance.
