    You might want to check out 10,000 Bulbs. Their prices and quality are good.

    I use one of these strips for my seed germination area in the basement.
    The strip I have is 600 LED’s /5m and has a clear rubber over the lights and is waterproof, if left uncut.

    How much light does that strip put out compared to the led shop lights ? @58chev

    Can’t compare against LED shop lights but here it is behind 2 6500K Flouro’s.

    I can take a shot later today with just the LED’s and just the tubes, if you want?

    What I like about it is it’s 12dc, Of course for household use you’ll have to buy the power supply. I’ve been eyeballing it for a while now for my camper, I’ve seen a lot of them now coming out with a strip just under the awning on the outside wall. A very cool low voltage porch light, and for me I could simply wire it into the existing porch light and be able to use the factory inside switch to turn it on and off 🙂

    The only problem I’m having is which one to get, ‘Cool’ or ‘Warm’ or even maybe a color. I just don’t know how bright they are

    The problem I’m having right now is powering up 250 ft. of LED strip, and the DC doesn’t have enough power to light them up. The only solution is split them into several parts and connect them with multiple LED driver.

    I believe cool color is always the brightest one as it has higher lumens.

    As the color number goes up the light gets whiter but they call the color cooler.

    I hadn’t realized that, when I was buying flashlights i used to buy the coolest white I could get as that was the brightest. I did the same when I bought bulbs for the house, i had to go and return most of them as it felt unnatural. I went back and replaced them all with warm lights.

    That’s what they say, but who is really going to keep the receipt that long to find out.

    I have had to return one LED bulb out of a dozen that I purchased about 6 months ago. No issue returning it for an exchange though.

    From what I hear it’s the electronics that fail and not the actual led bulbs.

    Some of my LED bulbs have to go back to the store, as they are making buzzing noises.

    Are you sure it’s the LED and not a bug in the lens??

    Wow that is unusual. I replaced some fluorescent fixtures because they were buzzing, and the LEDs have been silent.
