What is the difference between RGB, RGBW, and Flow Series / Color chasing?

LED Lighting Terminology 

  • Multicolor = Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Purple, Orange, Pink, White 
  • RGB =  multicolor  + mixed white color 
  • RGBW = multicolor + pure white color 
  • RGBWA = multicolor + pure white color + amber turn signal functionality 
  • FLOW SERIES/ Color Chasing  =  multicolor + features over 100+ sequential flowing effects/ modes 
  • Switchback = white color only + amber turn signal functionality


Flow or RGBW Which is better? 

Flow Series or Flow or Color Chasing is the newest LED Style and features the most head-turning effects and color combinations. Flow is great for car shows, attention, etc. Flow is slightly harder to operate as there are so many led modes. However, you can still choose solid colors like red, green, blue, and yellow at will through our controller. 


Rgbw is more straightforward and brighter than Flow Series/ Color Chasing LEDS. RGBW is sometimes cheaper than Flow/ Color chasing LEDs, making it an excellent option for someone who wants multicolor functionality without all the extra modes that Flow/ Color chasing offers.
