  • Really useful lights

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Easy to use: Obvious solder-lands where you can cut the strip to size. Polarity is clearly marked so it's easy to use any 12v power supply (I used a 15v supply for my second 3metres.)

    Cons:

    Coming off a large roll means the tape keeps trying to twist sideways. Not really a big wory as I just weighed it down with a pair of plyers while I soldered the ends. It would be nice if I could get a CHEAP second power supply like the one supplied.

    OtherThoughts:

    I used these to replace a couple of 35watt flouro (tube) lights. Two one-meter strips where I didn't really need excess brightness and three one-meter strips for the other. To match the light output of the original lights would probably need the whole 5 meters. I seem to be getting the equivalent light output of a 20watt tube from two and and a half meters. I will get more of these.

    Bottomline:

    Efficient, effective and easy to use. Oh and they're versatile too. I plan to get more of these to eventually replace all the lights here.
