I once mentioned that if you bought LED lighting that comes integrated within a housing, you may have to replace the entire LED light, including the housing, when it stops working or becomes too dim. Turns out that this is no longer the case, and you may be able to replace the light strip within.
I bought this kit to replace a fluorescent tube that has broken down. There is no point buying a replacement fluorescent tube when the LED light strip replacement kit costs only 5.80 Yuan (S$1.20), inclusive of domestic shipping! The price is simply unbelievable. In most other countries, the delivery alone would have cost much more than S$1.20. I’m pretty sure a fluorescent tube costs minimally S$3. And of course, an LED light should last much longer.
I went for the cheapest option, a “try me” promotional item, since it is meant for the store room which has low usage. I would have preferred a lower power version – 24W is kind of overkill for replacing an 18W fluorescent tube. But, at this pricing, what the heck, just go for the lowest.
Now i have less of a worry that some of the LED lighting at home might break down. Though, it may be hard to find the cool white version of the LED strip replacement kit.
