Not voting this cold but a reel of LED tape, preferably the waterproof type encased in silicone is far better and more discreet.

Its low voltage can be cut to length, comes in all colours etc and most of all a 5m reel will cost you no more than a couple of quid.

anyone know colour temperature? not mentioned in the specs
These are rated as IP20.
I wouldn't recommend these as garage lights.
Assuming the differences between garages that are around, I wouldn't assume these are suitable for all.

whilst I'd agree LED is the way to go for kitchen lighting and fancy doing my shed with it too eventually, you aren't going to get quality waterproof Led strip including controller/power supply for a couple of Quid , are you ....
Not trying to be a pedant, as they are cheap if ordered from China/HongKong etc but a couple of quid is a little miss-leading..

Still 100% agree with your sentiment however that its the way to go

However as one has just gone wrong and a bulb hasn't fixed it this is perfect timing if its a 16w available (havent looked yet )
EDIT BUMMER JUst a 10W still a great price for it if it wasn't for the want to go LED I'd bite

Well could you find me a 5m led strip that's encased with a UK plug then for a couple of quid .
These were in a lightning deal for prime yesterday - LED

There are a plethora of sellers on like likes of Aliexpress and Ebay offering the strips for peanuts, not forgetting Banggood hence not providing links as they’re not exactly hard to find.

I can’t post links for some reason but you can grab a 5m reel from Banggood for £3.85, £1.90 if you go for the non-waterproof which would also do fine and a well reviewed 2 Amp UK power supply is £2.64 – more than enough to run a 300 3528 led strip assuming you’re running the entire length though any adequately rated 12v adapter you have lying around will work fine from an old router, modem etc.

You could probably do better trawling through Aliexpress, just using Banggood as a quick example.

Additionally, you could another 80p for in-line controller so you can dim the strip/make it flash or you could even push the boat out and spend £1.30 on a wireless RF controller and really impress the neighbours.

Its not misleading in the slightest in my opinion, It can be done. I would regard anything under a fiver as a couple of quid and for less than £4 I can have 10m of LED tape with change from Banggood, non waterproof would do fine for under cabinet kitchen lighting as its only 12v so a splash or two isn't going to hurt it or pose an electrocution risk. You could probably do a lot better than the prices I found above if you spent the time going through Aliexpress for example

As for power, most of us save (well I do anyway) the power adapters from old Tech and any 12v adapter will do fine as long as its adequately rated.
