I ran across this a few days ago, so I ordered one, and I am pretty impressed with it so far. It has high and low settings, uses 6 AAA batteries (whice we have rechargeables) screw mount and/or velcro mount comes with it. Just thought I'd pass this along...

These same lights as well as the single 'swivilable' puck style lights are also available up here in the Great White North!!

Hi -

I just found these individual surface mount LED lights made by Seasense, and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them. They come in cool white, soft white and many other variations.

I bought these:

They are motion activated, very bright, use 3AA batteries, and attach magnetically to a small metal disk that has adhesive. Right now I'm using one inside my cabinet under the sink.

I just found these lights at BigLots today, they were $12.99 for the strip, the singles and the pucks. I bought a 3 pack of the pucks, they work pretty good.

I have seen ones that look just like that at Canadian Tire in the marine section for C$14.99. I was waiting for them to go on sale and try them out.

Yup. I just went there to check them out tonight. They are indeed the 12-LED "cool white" Seasense ones. Still debating whether the 16-LED "soft white" ones would make a significant difference. Either way, what I like the most about them is the direct 12V hookup.

I bought a new LED strip light to install over our bathroom door & mirror. We needed something that put out a lot of light for doing hair, makeup, etc. (And I already know Glen will have something to say about that.) Here's what I found: an 18" strip with ten sets of three bright warm-white LEDs from LEDwarehouse.com. It puts out a lot of light for a 4 watts (1/3 amp) fixture.

Pros: Lots of light, tolerates a wide range of voltages (no regulator circuit needed as long as your converter is well behaved), comes with plug-in wire leads at both ends, so you can daisy-chain them, and has a self-stick backing. If you're handy with a hacksaw and soldering iron you can cut the unit to length at 1.8" intervals and make shorter lengths of lights. $18, which is a good deal for 4 watts of warm-white LEDs.

Cons: Ugly. So I'll have to build a diffuser to hide it, but it'd be fine hidden under a kitchen cabinet.
