LED Neon Lights: The Ultimate Buyer's Guide


Hello and welcome to thethrilling world of LED neon signs! Because of their energy efficiency,adaptability, and eye-catching appearance, these bright, captivating displayshave quickly gained popularity. We'll cover everything you need to know aboutLED neon signs, their components, and why EXONEON.COM is your best bet forhigh-quality LED neon signs in this comprehensive buyer's guide.

What exactly is neon?

Why is it so popular?

Since the early twentieth century, neon signs have been made with glass tubes filled with neon gas. The gas emits a bright, glowing light when a high voltage is applied. LED neon signs are a modern alternative to traditional neon signs that use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) instead of neon gas.

LED neon signs have grown in popularity because they outperform traditional neon signs in many ways.

  • LED neon signs consume up to 80% less energy than traditional neon signs.
  • Durability: They are less brittle and can withstand harsh weather conditions.
  • Low upkeep: Because of their long lifespan and resistance to wear and tear, LED neon signs require little maintenance.
  • They are versatile because they come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors and can be customized to your liking.

LED Neon Sign Components: Quality Counts

Different LED Types and the Best LED for LED Neon Signs

LED technology has advanced significantly, and there are now numerous types of LEDs on the market. Here are some examples of common LEDs:

  • Miniature LEDs: These low-power, small LEDs are commonly used for indicators and simple displays.
  • High-power LEDs: These LEDs have a high intensity and output, making them ideal for illumination and large displays.
  • SMD (surface-mounted device) LEDs are small, high-efficiency LEDs that are directly mounted onto a circuit board.
  • COB (chip-on-board) LEDs: Multiple LED chips are mounted on a single substrate in this type, allowing for higher LED density and better heat dissipation.
  • SMD LEDs are the best choice for LED neon signs because they provide the ideal balance of brightness, efficiency, and size, making them ideal for creating vibrant, attention-grabbing neon signs.


The lifespan of an LED neon sign is determined by the quality of the LEDs used. LEDs of high quality can last for up to 50,000 hours, while lower-quality alternatives may only last for 10,000 hours. Exoneon.com only uses the best LEDs to ensure the longevity of your sign up to 50,000 hours.

We use the best SMD LEDs at EXONEON.COM to ensure that our LED neon signs are the brightest and most energy-efficient on the market. You can be confident that you're getting the best LED technology for your neon sign when you choose EXONEON.COM.


Flexes are the flexible materials that are used to house the LEDs in a neon sign. High-quality silicone, which is strong and flexible and can be molded into complex shapes, is used to make the best flexes. All of EXONEON.COM's LED neon signs are made with high-quality silicone flexes.

Backing Material

The backing material determines how long an LED neon sign will last, how it will look, and how well it will perform overall. Backing can be made from a variety of materials, including:


is a popular backing material due to its lightweight, durability, and transparency. It comes in a variety of thicknesses and can easily be shaped to match the design of the LED neon sign.


Another common backing material is polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It's lightweight, inexpensive, and offers adequate support for the LED neon sign. It is, however, less durable than other materials and may not be the best option for outdoor signs.

Aluminum Composite Panels

(ACP) are made up of two thin layers of aluminum sandwiched around a core material, usually polyethylene. These panels are lightweight, rigid, and weather resistant. They can be used to provide a sleek and modern backdrop for LED neon signs.


Metal backings, such as stainless steel or aluminum, make LED neon signs strong and durable. Metal backing is suitable for both indoor and outdoor signs because it is not affected by weather or wear. It is, however, heavier and more expensive than other materials.



Acrylic is the preferred backing material for LED neon signs at Exoneon.com. Acrylic has the ideal combination of durability, transparency, and versatility, making it ideal for creating long-lasting LED neon signs. Furthermore, acrylic backing enables CNC cutting, which ensures a precise fit and a cleaner, more professional appearance.
