What's the most important difference between weak acids and bases vs strong acids and bases as it pertains to this class?

Strong acids are fully ionized and have higher concentration of hydrogen ions!
Weak acids and bases will not fully dissociate when in an aqueous solution, strong acids and bases will.
Strong acids and bases completely ionize while weak acids and bases only partially ionize. Strong acids produce many H+ ions and strong bases produce many OH- ions.
Strong acids will have complete deprotonation and strong bases will go through complete protonation.
Strong acids and bases will fully ionize and disassociate while weak acids and bases will not fully ionize. Strong acids will produce more photons in solutions than weak acids.
Strong acids fully ionize (i.e. dissociate into products), while weak acids only partially dissociate and require equilibrium calculations to determine concentrations etc.
