    good 3 watt 12 volt led

    posted by designjah on 05/22/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    easy to use with 12 volt systems. I've used these hooked directly to a solar charged 12 volt agm battery for shed lighting and with 12 volt ac to dc power supplies. Works great. Surprisingly bright for a 3 watt LED. I recommend a dimmer between the power so...
    Cons:
    Gets a bit warm at full power. I use it with a dimmer to control light output and heat.

    Good enough for the hobbyist

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    They work well enough for their intended purpose. I'm using them as a step on on/off switch for a light box. I've also added them to some extension cords to add a quick switch instead of having to unplug from the wall. I still unplug from the wall if they'r...
    Cons:
    The wire release inside the actual switch is a little weak. I pressed in too hard on one switch and bent the spring mechanism. ...

    great little heatsinks

    posted by designjah on 11/20/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    well made small little heat sinks. I like the fanned out fins instead of just straight fins like many other heat sinks have. Made of aluminum so heat dissipation should be good (copper would be even better).
    Cons:
    I didn't care for the adhesive tape these came with. I removed the tape and used arctic alumina. I have also used sku 4579 to a...

    Great buy. Works well

    Pros:
    Great bang for buck. You get enough for many projects. The different sizes are very useful. This stuff shrinks just like the stuff from my local store but is a fraction of the price. I also recommend sku 23452 to complete the selection of sizes.
    Cons:
    Packaged in a plastic bag, tightly wound. There are some sharp folds that have flattened the tube. Should still work ok but I w...
