Rope lights are a simple cost-effective solution for decorative lighting where it is not the primary light source. It is a string of LEDs connected with wires and encased in plastic. This design creates ultimate flexibility, allowing the rope to be bend both radially and laterally, and allowing the light to have a 360° viewing angle. Tape lights are a string of LEDs soldered onto a flexible PCB. This makes it more durable than rope light, but it can only be bent radially due to the PCB. They have an adhesive backing for mounting. Individual LEDs are visible in both the tape light and rope light.
