I was in Costco the other day and saw a package of “Wireless LED under Cabinet Lights.” The package contained 2 strip lights with each strip containing 6 LEDs.
The lights are dimmable, and the light head pivots for a directional light. LED lights are our future and this wireless light seemed like the answer to my under the cabinet lack of light. I sew in this room and have a standing fluorescent lamp by the sewing machine. I found as I have gotten older, in addition to needing glasses, I can’t see without a lot of light.
My Other Encounter with LEDs
This was not my first encounter with LEDs. I bought a solar powered LED light from Gardener’s Supply for my garden. It contained 16 LED bulbs. I hated it. It gave off a bluish ghost like cast that I now refer to as “blue scary” light.
Since LEDs have continued to advance and the package of these under cabinet lights said they contained super bright white LEDs, I thought they were worth a try.
These lights give off that same ghost like blue light as the Gardener’s Supply outdoor light. In addition, as I suspected, it provides very little light. The 2 lights together seemed like a light blue flashlight.
Here is a picture of one of the strips. I took the picture without my flash so you could see the color.
So, be careful when you buy cheap LED lights and make sure you can return them. These are going back to Costco.
If anyone has found LED lights they like, please share.
