Some Differences between SMD LEDs and COB LEDs

There are various types of LED light source. Among them, COB and SMD LEDs are greatly popular. The manufacturer MOONLEDS will introduce you SMD VS COB LED, the comparison of both.



SMD LED is the most common LED on the market. it is suitable for light bulbs and light strips, as well as indicator lights for cell phones. SMD LED chips are available in a variety of sizes, such as 5050 SMD LED, 3535 SMD LED, 3030 SMD LED, 2835 SMD LED, etc.

COB technology is the latest advancement in LED lighting, the difference is that COB LEDs have a much larger number of chips.



Energy Efficiency

In general, the use of LED lamps ensures high energy efficiency. This is why they are becoming increasingly popular and the most preferred light source compared to filament bulbs. With this in mind, you can be sure that both SMD and COB LEDs will be very energy efficient. However, please note that energy efficiency varies depending on the lumen. The higher the lumen value, the higher the energy efficiency.


Quality of Light

When it comes to SMD LED lamps, the light produces a glare that is because of using as a point light source, which is the result of connecting multiple light sources.

COBs, on the other hand, emit a uniform and glare-free light. It produces a uniform and easily modified light beam. This is mainly because its wide-angle beam makes it a better light source.



Usage Scenarios

In most cases, professional video light manufacturers use LED COB bulbs extensively. COB lamps are known to be popular with photographers and filmmakers because of their wide beam angle and uniformity of light emission.

In architectural lighting, COB chips are used in more complex lighting applications to provide better beam angles and more aesthetically pleasing fixtures. SMD LEDs, however, are used in more general lighting fixtures such as diffused panel lights with frosted diffusers that cover the light source.


The differences between SMD and COB LEDs are light quality, usage scenario, etc. At the same time, they are suitable for different applications. By understanding them, you will get the ideal LED light for video shooting and other uses. For more details about SMD LED, COB LED and quotation of our products, please send us a message. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
