Led lights in dry cabinet


#1
Anyone tried to 'zeng' a led strip inside dry box? Damn frustrated to hold torch light in hand.
Another choice is those magnetic x3 led lights and stick it inside??

Anyone attempted?

Many thanks

Why make it so hard?

just buy a couple of these closet touch light and stick one on the inside top of the dry cab, and one under each tray. They come ready with double side tape. The OSRAM brand ones are very good.

Good idea, I had these lights too, only fear of battery leaking . I found out IKEA under lighting section also have some battery powered led lights.

Thank you for your kind input.

go buy those 12V LED strips. if you have friend in china its damn cheap, singapore shops sell for 10x the price in china....

the only issue is that it needs 12V DC, but its no problems if you use flat wire or doll house wire tape.. ;) the tape is quite flat and can be run out of the cabinet w/o affecting its airseal

If you use heavy duty batteries and not alkaline batteries, you will not have to fear any leaking.

I am settling for those rechargeable types as a long term thingy.
IKEA one is rather cool, it's triggered on and off by motion sensor too.

Lights will on for 15secs b4 auto shut down.

Thank you all for yr inputs

Brand for the IKEA one? It's under their lighting section.
Small straw like length for AAA batteries and LED strips for the lights.

Motion sensor built in, at the end.

I recommend this
LEDstixx
Solid aluminum body, can lay it standing too! Easy to change battery.

The ikea one is fragile and motion sensor does not work well. Changing batteries is a bitch.
