Im a sparkie and also contracted to wire kitchens for Wickes.
Im asked to fit loads of strip lighting lately and although this is Philips, its not gonna be great because the LED's are spaced too far apart.
A decent strip uses twice as many and are much closer together
If you don't need colour changing then go for this stuff below
I'm using it on all of the jobs
Nice bright colour
Daylight is daylight not blue at all. Just nice and white
Density of LED's is just perfect, no visible marks at all
Brightness is just bang on but still on a bright side (all of Lighting Ever products are much brighter than Chinese equivalent)
Adhesive strip is from 3m so stays in place like forever
Takes any constant voltage 12V LED driver 24W/5m if I remember correctly
CRI is much higher than typical Chinese LED's so everything just looks more natural

I wonder if you can buy 2 sets and attached them together to make 10 metres..
Looks to be just what I was looking for for under my kitchen cupboards.

Although i wouldn't recommend them, yes you can join them, either by soldering them (best way) or a cheap unreliable joiner.
The power supply would easily run 2 sets

I did but I'm not looking for a professional job - I just need some lighting to save me having the main lights on all the time. My kitchen is due a refurb (so I'm told) so I'll incorporate decent lighting when that job gets done.

As these are from Amazon, if I find they do not do a half decent job, they'll be going back.
To be honest I bought 2 different makes I have not heard of before and they have worked flawlessly.
They work with Alexa and they play in sync with music so if the grand children want a disco effect, they love them. Cost me about £17 each and worth every penny.

Hiya, have you got a link for those lights? Sounds just like what my kids want!

You might be right but given these are Philips, the colour production will be more accurate than any other unbranded ones from e.g. Amazon

It would be good to hear feedback from someone who has tried this exact model though
Doesn't look like this one doesn't do hues of white which is a shame

More accurate compared to what, it'll be whatever colour you set it to.

You'll need to feed power in at several points if you want anything like consistent colour along its length.

Yep... With style of LED strip you have continuity connectors. Be warned, the long the strip gets the brightness reduces. Might be worth going to a qualified electrician and getting a 'transister' fittd.
Thanks for all your suggestions. I have a built-in sliding wardrobe so I would like to fit LED strips all the way round, on the inside. It would look so cool haha
Not sure about all the comments about dim strips.

I've got about 10m or more on a single run of 10cm strips of lights and then 10cm of wire. A good few meters of cable in between some of the sections but no dimness whatsoever.

This is just from a cheapo amazon strip, a 2a 12v adapter and lots of time and burnt finger tips from soldering!

Wouldn't do that as the voltage will drop towards the end of the run and you will find that the leds will be dimmer. If you can connect the transformer to both ends of the 10m run that will work...

Just be careful of the voltage drop if you do that, possibly best to run them in parallel, not series, but don't take my word for it, please do your own research, as I looked into it a while back and I could be talking out of my backside!
At this point I feel like I should get a professional to do it. Obviously after lockdown ahaa
Can anyone suggest a strip light product for under my kitchen units... I've two banks of units I'd want to light under - both approx 95cm. I'm not wanting to hard wire to a socket so potentially looking at battery power and single remote if possible...

Thanks, I might buy that one. If I can ask, when you follow the link it says a newer model is available (currently OOS), would you know if it's worth getting the newer one as I can't tell?

Battery powered would be a nightmare, even with LED's the batteries would need changing quite regular.
There are some decent ones now available from Amazon and Ebay which have sensors that activates the light on movement so the batteries would potentially last longer and you wouldn't need to remember to turn them off.

Thanks.
Actually I have done the whole kitchen there, apart from floor only.

That's amazing. I'm not a DIY person. I'm more techy. My Mum has been bugging me to self teach myself how to tile via YouTube so I can do her bathrooms and kitchen - I don't dare. Knowing me, I'm mess up even the simplest of jobs lol. Maybe you should do them hahahah. Just kidding ha
