  • Phenominal LED Light bar!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Does not generate too much heat (but it still really does need a heat sink). Light output is simply unbelievable! Very bright for such a small package size. Great for RV's or campers or any remote place where you only have 12V power.

    Cons:

    It really wants to be driven by a current source (0.5 Amps) and not a 12V battery, but a 0.5 Ohm (1 Watt [to keep it from getting too hot]) resistor in series with it compensates for the current slowly climbing as the LED's get hotter (negative Temp coefficient of silicon causes this phenomenon).

    OtherThoughts:

    Excellent light dispersion from the strip - great for general lighting!

    Bottomline:

    A fantastic deal for the size and power draw and the amount of light it puts out. Best I've seen so far for LED lights!
