  • Thin yet bright

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

    Pros:

    - Very thin light but packs a surprising punch.

    - Has a nice construction with some plated tabs that are super easy to solder to.

    - Very bright, would light up a small room no problem.

    Cons:

    - Needs a regulator unless the voltage suppy is quite constant, will be destroyed hooking it up to a car power supply.

    - Came bent when arrived but bent back fine

    - Needs a heatsink for medium to higher current levels

    OtherThoughts:

    This is not to be confused with an LED strip in any way, this has some serious power unlike the low wattage SMD LED's of the strips out there.

    Not necessarily a con or pro but this throws light everywhere, it's design means you can readily put any lens on it so if you want broad and wide lighting this is good.

    Bottomline:

    Excellent product for the money but people have to either watch the voltages or have a current regulator.

    In many applications this could be a very usefull item.
