8.4W instead of marked 48W !!! – 48W 3300K 600x3528 SMD LED Warm White Light Strip (10-Meter/12V) Reviews

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

Pros:
it's easy to use
Cons:
very small output power. It only draws 700mA at 12 V which means 8.4 W !!!! They mark it as 48W, which is TOTAL BULLSHIT !!! Other problem: high internal resistance ! If you have 12V at one side, you measure ONLY 8.6V at the other side, it means the other side will give you VERY LOW LIGHT !!!
Other:
How could they state it as 48 W ?????????????? I definitely recommend connect both sides of the stripe to the power supply - in this case it will give you (better say it will consume) around 10W
Bottomline:
Big disappointment, don't trust what they mark (?) !!!
