  • sticky, bent, good light

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

    Pros:

    Strip holding LEDs is alu-back so cools LEDs. Shape of shell allows different mounting positions, so you can shield direct light. Also mountable on incligned surfaces (e.g. attic room wall). A standard jack chassis can be soldered on the strip, replacing the lead, allowing for pull-safe connection to wall wart. Pleasant light. Bright but not blue, rich light.

    Cons:

    The three strips that I ordered were held together with sticky tape of which the stickyness was almost impossible to remove from the shell.

    The three were wrapped in bubble foil, rather than in a cartboard stiff tube, which caused them to be bent and torted during their shipping. Restoring them to their original shape is almost impossible.

    OtherThoughts:

    A more rigid tube-like packagings is very much recommended. An optional end-cap or a slightly longer shell allowing for mounting a chassis-plug would be welcome.

    Bottomline:

    Good enough light for a bed lamp, desk light or under-cupboard lighting. Friendly light, tad expensive but worth the price.
