Soldering LED tape can be slow a laborious task and not everyone has the skills or equipment to do it. Solder-less fast connectors aren't new, but up-until the recent arrival of the Hippo connector, they could only connect the non IP rated tapes. The unique design of the Hippo connector pierces through the water resistant coating on IP65 LED tape and provides a secure solder free connection.

Non IP rated LED tape doesn't have a water resistant coating but the IP65 versions do. We have Hippo connectors that can be used with IP20, non-water resistant tape and versions for IP65 water resistant tape. They are available in 2 pin (for single colour strips), 4 pin (for RGB strips) and 5 pin (for RGBW or RGBWW strips). They are also available in a strip to strip version or a strip to wire version. The strip to strip Hippo connector connects 2 LED tapes together and doesn't leave a gap. While the strip to wire Hippo connector allows you to connect an input or output cable to an LED tape that you've cut. You can use flat or rounded cables, and cables can be stranded. This design allows you to quickly add a connecting cable to the length you need.

Hippo LED tape connectors help to speed up installation times, avoid wastage of LED tape and provide more flexibility during installs. For bends and corners we also have some L shaped connections that fit into the Hippo connectors. Using two strip to strip connectors you can create flat corners.

Specification

  • Available in 2 pin (for single colour tape), 4 pin (for RGB tape) and  5 pin (for RGBW/RGBWW tape)
  • For use with water resistant IP65 or non water resistant IP20 rated LED tapes (available in single colour only).
  • Suitable for LED tape widths: 10mm wide for single colour or RGB and 12mm wide for RGBW & RGBWW.
  • Further information can be found in the data sheets tab.
  • LED tape and wire must be ordered separately
  • Suitable for use with 12V and 24V LED tapes.
  • Manufacturer: LED Strip Fit

To use a Hippo Connector cut your LED tape to the desired length (within the cut points) and peel back the self adhesive backing. Open the mouth of the Hippo connector. Insert the LED tape into the mouth then close it. The connector will snap securely into position and form a secure connection. Then you can either connect another LED tape to it with the strip to strip version, or connect a cable with the tape to wire version.

Be sure the 4 pins have pierced the tape before installing fully (ip67 tapes)! Saves troubleshooting later.
