  • LED Strip Lighting question...

    We are remodeling our kitchen and i am looking at several types of under cabinet lighting. I like the led strip light. Very inconspicuous, and pretty inexpensive.

    My question is, i need to go around a window, but don't want light around the window, but want to run off the same power location (going/want to hardwire it and not use the plug). I have seen some different jumpers or extensions to use on led strip light that can be cut. Just nervous about cutting the led strip, then the 2nd half not working under the other cabinets.

    Anyone have any experience/suggestions?

    I need to see them or a cut sheet, what do they look like after you cut them? Loose wires?

      Thanks Robb...here is something similar i am looking at...i think when they are cut, wires aren't exposed, but contact points are. I have seen where writes can be soldered to the points, or solderless extension clip on thing. But i don't know if it changes if i use led lights that can change colors.

        I've seen them, there are connection points, those 2 red dots, where you can solder on light gauge wire. A friend of mine has a couple rolls that he used around his tattoo shop, uses old cell phone chargers to solder to the ends to plug them in and power them.
        They are more "mood lighting" than something used as a work light.

          Awesome, thanks. Yeah that is what I am looking for really. Just something for under the cabinet. I have one set that came on a 180 gallon aquarium I bought that the previous owner set up. But they weren't cut. Decently bright and the remote could do a bunch of different things.
