Default LED Light Strips

If anyone is looking for 12V waterproof, flexible LED light strips, similar to the Lumeno make, being sold at Outdoor Warehouse and Campworld and advertised in most outdoor / vehicle magazines. Tisonics in Booysens, JHB have them at a reasonable price. The strips come in 5cm lengths with 3 LEDs per 5cm length. The strips are made up (cut and wired) to a length of your choice, attach to most surfaces using 3M double sided tape, the best on the market. The only disadvantage is that they do not have an On/Off switch, this you would have to put in; I am sure a normal beside lamp switch would suffice. They come in a variety of colours as well (red, green, blue, yellow and white).

The going rate for a Lumeno flexible 31cm or 9 LED is between R169-00 and R189-00. A 41cm or 12 LED costs between R199-00 to R219-00.

The Tisonics strips cost:
1)5cm @ R15-00
2)10cm @ R25-00
3)30cm @ R75-00 (18 LED)
4)40cm @ R100-00 (24 LED)
5)1m @ R250-00
6)5m @ R1250-00

Contact Tisonics on 011 493 3730.

Die skakelaars is beslis nie so duur nie, ons het gekoop in boksburg vir onder R10 een en hul werk fantasties,. sal beslis hierdie ou bel vir led strips, dit klink goed.

Hi Witklipbank! Bought switches at Builders for R6-00 and In-Line Fuse holders for about R20-00 from Midas just to be on the safe side. So for about R100-00 you are kitted with the some decent lighting.

Hi guys

Just a word of caution, they are not as bright as the Lumeno.

I have bought 1m from tisonics, but they are far from the same output as the Lumeno and also if you get to approximately the same lux, your current draw is also higher than Lumeno.

Is there a way that somone can test/verify this or is it "subjective". I have just bought a few strips (from AndyF of this forum) and installed it in my Commander.

I bought a strip with 6 lights recently at Outdoor Warehouse and it did have a switch. Installed it in the back of my Disco, running of the deep cycle in the back, with a fuse. It works well, but the adhesive tape is rubbish. Nothing that duct tape can't sort out though
