Important:

This item may fail if it is used with the car engine running.
Voltages can rise above 12 volts and overdrive and overheat the LEDs.
If it is planned to use the LED board in this manner the simple addition of a resistor will protect the LEDs.
For this item a resistor of 5 ohms and one watt is advised.
Add the resistor in to the red wire

    Pros: It looks great. The LEDs stick out from a nice looking opaque white bar that is fairly rigid, not flexible like the description says. You could probably curve it just a little. It should be moisture resistant but I don't know about waterproof. The wires are adequate and have connectors so you can daisy chain the lights, or snip the wire off one end and use the connector for your power supply.

    Cons: The ends are finished with crudely cut bits of plastic glued on. The lack of built in resistors is inconvenient.

    Other: It works and looks good and classy, if you like this style that doesn't have exposed circuit board like the other ones.

    Pros: - Low power consumption - Clear white light (not blue tinted) - Protective plastic cover around the led strip/board - Doesn't get warm - Good build quality - Small in size vs. the light it emits - Excellent for DIY projects - The connection for the wires is clearly marked with +/- on the circuit board

    Cons: None. It worked just as described. Could had an other type of connection for the wires. But it would probably make the product more expensive.

    Other: Its size makes it excllent for DIY lighting projects for furnitures like shelves and such.

    Pros: Very cheap led strip.
    What made me buy it is that it is water proof.
    The build quality was good. The leds are all covered in some substance that looks like hot glue.
    I was amazed of the lighting power.
    It is now actually too bright for my fish tank.

    Cons: There are actually no cons I can think of really.
    One thing I did was to cut the connectors of the strip to connect a wall wart.
    I removed the other connector also, since it was in the way.

    Other: Even after one of them fell in the water it is still working perfectly. No water got inside.

    Pros: Works as advertised on the tin.
    Works very well for the purpose I had intended; as lighting on the self above my garage workbench.

    Cons: No mention of which wire is which, as mentioned in other reviews.
    Grey = +12v
    White = -12v
    I've not measured current draw.
    As well, no mention of specs. Knowing the max current is an important consideration, before ordering.

    Other: For under cabinet/under shelf lighting, this is good buy.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very bright.
    I thought I will use it for my TV to light the back end, but I use it as a light for a window because its brighter then I thought it would be.
    Very nice built and works great. Stays cool.

    Cons: Connectors were not that easy, since I don't know much about electricity. But I got a power adapter here on DX sku.15991, cut the edges of and connected it using on of the connectors on the LED strip for easy connection.
    It will be easier with an adapter for this device.

    Other: I like it, but if you are looking for a backlight for you TV, then its too bright.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Nice (mostly) sealed construction, suitable for use in kitchen to improve illumination of bench. Also nice low profile. There is a connecter at each end for linking. Wires are soft like silicone or other high temperature (safe) wire.

    Cons: This is a 2W lamp. If I knew that I would not have bought it as I need more for lighting a kitchen workbench. But it is sufficient. Sealing at wires is not the best, so for acquarium you should add a bit of silicone (only at wires). Wire tails should be shorter, because if you link it you probably want them as close together as possible. I'll just cut/solder/heatshrink it together. Housing is plastic, not metal. Metal would have been nicer, but I guess plastic is easier to mount using double sided tape (actually industrial VHB tape).

    Other: Does what it says, would have prefered a bit more details on specifications, but it does work. It is 12V 170mA. Any regulated 12V supply will do. If you want to use it in a car and want it to last, connect a 10 Ohm 1W resistor in series (2V / 10 Ohm = 200mA, close enough). 5 Ohm is too little and eventually the strip will fail.

    Pros: Great LED lighting. Very sturdy lighting strip with many different uses. Gives off a very clean bright white light. I purchased it for lighting up my camp site when I go camping, which it manages very well. Much better than what I was ever expecting. Very low power consumption which is great for camping.

    Cons: Besides the white & grey coloured wire I really cannot fault this product.

    Other: You won't be disappointed with this product & great value for money.

    posted by brewboy on 19:16:54 G12T 20/12/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This unit is very good. Well priced, rigid and rugged. Very good bright 'Cool White' light output. The LEDs are epoxied into the bar so they are sealed off which makes them very good for use around moisture and steam.

    Cons: Not sure what country uses Grey & White for a DC wiring standard, but in Australia Red & Black is the standard, which just means you need to work that out. Wires are a little bit short (about 6cm long) but that's easily overcome. On 1 of 4 units I have purchased there is a bit of a gap between the wires and the epoxy, which could cause stress relief problems if the LED bar is not fixed/secured, or could let small amounts of moisture into the connection, but it is such a minor issue, as a bit of epoxy or silicon would overcome this.

    Other: Great buy. I have bought 4 so far, and will be buying another 3 soon. I have mounted 2 of them in my kitchen as under-cupboard lights powering them with a 12V DC plugpack. They have been exposed to a lot of steam over the last 6 months and are going great. They provide more usable light than the over stove light in my rangehood. Another 2 I will be using in a caravan, mainly as they are very bright, cool white light, and they are very efficient if running off a 12V battery. Another 1 I will be mounting in my outdoor garden shed and running of a SLA battery with a small solar panel to keep it charged up. Good buy - good price, good light output, power efficient, rugged, good all round.

    Pros: My car has a 407 liter trunk and the LED strip iluminates it perfectly. It's easy to install and it has connector in both sides so you can connect several strips in series. Mi coche tiene un maletero de 407 litros y la tira de LED lo ilumina perfectamente. Es fácil de instalar y tiene conectores en los extremos así que se pueden conectar varias tiras en serie.

    Cons: The strip wasn't straight so I had to use a strong glue to stick it. La tira no estaba totalmente recta así que tuve que usar un pegamento fuerte para pegarla.

    Other: It works perfectly and it's very useful for trunks and the interior of the car. Funciona perfectamente y es muy útil para maleteros y el interior del coche.

  • 12V LED strip

    posted by schmooot on 12:28:45 G10T 15/10/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Bought these to use instead of bulbs underneath taxi-cab toplights. They work nicely and light up the toplight quite well even in the daytime.

    Cons: It would be nice if the wires were color coded. It isn't a huge deal but a nuisance when you have to test to see if you have the polarity correct.
    *NOTE* When using in a vehicle you must drop the current with a resistor to avoid premature burning out. This is because a vehicle that is running puts out 13.8 volts while the light bar is only made to run on 12V. The ideal resistor for vehicle applications is a **10 ohm 5 Watt resistor** You can get away with a 1W or 1/4W resistor but it will run very hot and eventually burn out

    Other: Great product for the price, love the free shipping.
    Don't like the lack of mounting holes and non-color coded wires. Red/black would be nice and easy.
