The light of 5630 LED the output is much more than the light output of the 5050 LED, the 5050 LED with 60 LEDs per meter can produce 1000 lumens (single LED is 60 mA @ 2.8-3.4 V); while the 5630 LED can produce 1300lumens (single LED is 70mA @ 2.8-3.4 V), which means that single 5630 LED have more brightness than single 5050 LED, and they are all 95 CRI, suitable for staircase lighting and building lighting. However, the heat output of 5630 LED is also higher than that of 5050 LED.
