ABSOLUTE SERIES LED strip features 99 CRI - a near perfect achievement in color rendering. With color options of D50 (5000K) and D65 (6500K), simulating natural daylight has never been as real.

Requires 12V DC input to operate. FilmGrade power supply (PN 3091) can operate a full reel (16 ft / 5 m) of ABSOLUTE LED strip.

Using a third-party power supply? No problem - just make sure your power supply has enough power capacity for the length of LED strip you plan on connecting.

ABSOLUTE™ LED strips use the PLUG system, and have female DC connectors mounted on both ends of the strip. Simply plug the power supply into the LED strip receptacle and you will be up and running in a matter of seconds. No extra assembly or accessories needed.

Need to hard-wire these strips? See our DC plug adapters under PN 7094 and PN 7095.

Pre-applied 3M VHB double-sided tape on the back side allows for simple but reliable installation. Peel back the liner and apply to virtually any surface.

These LED strips can be cut to length in 1.6 inch intervals using just a pair of scissors.

Rejoin LED strip segments or connect them to individual power supplies using our solderless connectors. Use PN 3070 for connecting an LED strip segment to open wire, and PN 3071 to join LED strip segments together.


ABSOLUTE LED strips are fully dimmable down to 0%. For an in-line PWM dimmer, see PN 3081. Wall-dimmer setups (e.g. Lutron/Leviton) will require a dimmable power supply (PN 3093). More info on LED strip dimming here.

Product Overview

Waveform Lighting's ABSOLUTE SERIES™ technology is the LED industry's first LED product to achieve 99 CRI at D50 5000K and D65 6500K. The 99 CRI rating indicates that the emitted light is quantitatively near-identical to natural daylight. This is the holy grail of lighting!

Our LED flexible strip provides 375 lumens of full-spectrum 99 CRI light per foot that is virtually indistinguishable from natural daylight.

Best indoor lighting I've ever seen.

I believe good lighting is essential to good health. Normally "daylight" lights bother me, but these look genuinely like I'm outdoors.

Thank you for great support

Terrific lights and 3 years running

I purchased these lights for my living room 3 years ago in 2019 and they are still going strong. Beautiful lighting. Highly recommend.

Patrick McKelvy

All theirs claims about the products I bought were totally accurate. I’ve already recommended them to several friends.

Excellent products and service

Purchased an Absolute LED strip with FilmGrade power supply and dimmer for a sensitometer build. The products are working perfectly and the quality is impressive. I found the information on the Waveform website very useful, and I really appreciated the comprehensive photometric specifications. Waveform staff were also helpful in answering my additional questions in advance of my purchase.

Great experience.

Very Versatile

I've used Waveform's strips in a diy led light panel and in a strip light for the ceiling. The quality of the light is extraordinary.

I was curious how this Absolute series would stack up compared to other high CRI LED's. They're amazing. I'm installing them to check my SAD. It's impossible to tell the difference between these and mid day sunlight on a cloudless day. I'll be using a couple feet of these for under cabinet lights as well. It's past time to replace the twelve uear old IKEA lights.

Exceptional light quality

Everyone comments on the light quality. Having the full spectrum is noticeable. Waveform customer support has been fantastic also.

Alex Jamison
Art reproduction

With customer support assistance, I designed and fabricated several fixtures with Absolute Series 5000K LEDs for use in art reproduction. The quality of the light is superior to other LED sources I tested, and customer support provided detailed information to facilitate my design process. Very pleased.

Diego Perello
Reliable high quality light source

The overall quality of these bulbs is tremendous. Truly unlike any other. I am a big fan of the color reproduction on these strips. They give off true natural colors without any color shifts. The 3M VHB tape on the back of the strips is also amazing. I wouldn't trust any other adhesive on the back of these strips. 11/10 would buy again! :)
