Love the alien photoshop. But as that picture I posted first said, Toilet paper. That’s why we can’t tell you we exist. I’d add to that that the alien now also would be saying - too bad you’d lite up my life.
@medz I got some nice strip lights from Lowe’s I put over the sink (under the cabinet; they have a cord and plug in, you can string them together). Wave my wet hand under the sensor and they turn on, wave again and they turn off. Nice and bright. Love them.
@Perkalicious They don’t have a brand on them that I can see. I will be passing Lowes later today and can go inside and look. The ones I am using are 12" long with the ability to string them together. I have two and it gives plenty of light for the counter/sink.
@Perkalicious Actually I was in there today looking for something else to fix the shelf in a cedar chest.
Utilitech 11.8 inch plug in light bar Lowes item number 709225. There are expansion kits. Those expansion kits say the are for the UCL 21A so I guess that is the “model” of the primary bar. Each bar is 276 lumens.
They screw in and they come with thingies (the technical term ) that also screw in to keep the cord from sagging and getting in the way.
I am using the plug in one and one expansion light bar. So total 552 lumens which I find is more than enough under the sink. They are currently out of stock although they might be available elsewhere like Amazon or something. Haven’t looked. When you have 2 strung together they both turn on and off together when you wave your hand under the sensor (my drying towel, if I knock it sometimes turns it on or off too).
@robson Chip-on-Board or “COB” refers to the mounting of a bare LED chip in direct contact with a substrate (such as silicon carbide or sapphire) to produce LED arrays. COB LEDs have a number of advantages over older LED technologies, such as Surface Mounted Device (“SMD”) LEDs or Dual In-line Package (“DIP”) LEDs. Most notably, COB technology allows for a much higher packing density of the LED array, or what light engineers refer to as improved “lumen density”. https://siliconlightworks.com/resoures/what-are-cob-leds
That is a different style of LED light, named because the LEDs are on a cylinder, laid out like kernels of corn on the cob. And they can get very, very high lumen outputs because of the density.

So I got these huge cabinets to store all the crap I keep buying. My NinjacookerthingfromMeh fits in one of them. Once these are full (one already is), no more crap. The issue is I can’t see in these things, too dark! I need stick on lights!
I’ll just keep collecting the free (with purchase) magnetic led battery operated lights from Harbor Freight. Similar concept, additional single light on the front for “flashlight” like operation. Very bright. Also has a hook for hanging and only $3.00 if I HAVE to buy. MEH to these.
@joe645 My experience as well. It was fantastic for the first four minutes, then it fell into the sink. I can’t speak to the battery life (ok, four minutes , but had it stayed in place it would have been a great solution.
I’ve found the battery life to be surprisingly dismal if using for any long duration. Otherwise they are great for quick bursts of time. The magnet is JUST strong enough to stick it but it feels like it’s going to fall off anytime
I also bought these last time. They definitely suck, but not in the way I was expecting. The magnets are decent, but not strong enough to work through the suction cup - or at least that’s been my experience. Pass.
Got these last time. They are bright. One lasted a week before it failed - new batteries, no light. One was delivered with a crack in the plastic base - sort of screws back together, but only with care. We forget to turn them off, so this these are a AAA battery manufacturer’s dream. For us, not good, not bad, just meh.
