Great truck cap light – 12V 75-LED White Light Strip (50cm) Reviews

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

Pros:
I wanted a bright light for my pickup cap, and I got one. I wired it to a lighted toggle switch, so that the led in the switch is always on. This makes it easy to find in the dark. When you flick the switch...WOW...it lights up the entire inside of the cap as if it were daylight.
Cons:
Build quality is mediocre. I don't know how it will stand up to the shaking in the vehicle. However, it is just zip-tied to the frame, so replacement will be easy (and cheap).
Other:
I thought I was going to have to wire multiples of this light to get enough illumination for night fishing/hunting/camping/shopping. Not at all. One strip provides plenty of shadow free light for anything.
Bottomline:
I couldn't be more pleased. Everyone I have shown this to has been impressed, and I think I sold a few for DX. I may buy an extra to have in case of failure, or I may buy a few to sell myself.
