Very nice strip, it is really bright. One is suitable to illuminate a workbench about 1.5m wide. Nice warm light. The metal construction was a surprise, it has a heatsink strip on the back and front. Still needs to be mounted to additional heatsinking, but should not require much. I'm looking at options for hanging it over a dining table, perhaps mounted a aluminium extrusion. Quick bench testing for 2 seconds showed virtually no warming so the heat spreader backing is efficient.
It is rated at 900mA. Even at 1mA (yes 1) the LEDs light up, and at 50mA it starts becoming useful. This is ideal for use in a car. Voltage drop is about 12.5V, so at 14V you need about 1.6 Ohm. You might get away with 1 Ohm and rely on some resistance in long wires, or get yourself a low drop current regulator.
