These projects look amazing and I definitely want to do them. I just have one doubt. I did a quick google research and could not find the answer. How long do these led strips last?

You should hang a curtain or closed, thin drapes over the foil light. Might look like a window with daylight.

Why didn't you connect the wire with the screw terminals? That's why they're there!

I am constructing a similar project myself and would like to know the specifics of the power adapter used to power the LEDs. I am making a desk light with, give or take 12 LEDS. Would 12v and 1A be enough? I know that they need 12volts but im not sure about the amps. If anyone could help me put that would be very much appreciated. Thank you

I really like this tutorial format where we don't actually know what you're making until you're done making it. It's almost refreshing.

I might do that second one and make all of the lights in the room based on it, with rgb LEDs of course... Looks really neat.

Those LEDs will fuck your eyes. You need a light source you cannot see, illuminating the object you mess with... Also good luck for maintenance in the concrete block.

So for the 2. One you can use difuser from broken tv/monitor.. I usually have some at home so i use them but if you don't maybe you can ask some tv mechanic to give you some from broken tv cuz he don't really need them..

I'm going to try and duplicate this project! I just purchased this set that does colors plus Alexa/Google voice. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076HKZ3LL WiFi LED STRIP dropped to $25.49 after code: 25SQN76B

Could you share a link to a power adapter? I can't seem to find one that comes with both the adapter and the power socket that solders to the strips.

Great video, very creative and cool techniques! Thanks for listing the products used. What thickness of aluminum do you prefer, please? Maybe bend the ends of the aluminum strip over to help prevent pulling out. As mentioned, LED strips need cooling (which the aluminum strip helps to provide here), heat shortens their life. The traces on LED strips are very light-weight, causing the LEDs farther away from the power entry to be much dimmer. Additional wires can be added, soldered to the strip in a few places, to prevent this. Not sure how to make the additional wires look good though. Beware cheap import power supplies, many of them don't have proper safety isolation from the AC power line. BigCliveDotCom (no connection to me) has some videos of the details.

1 Strip uses about 1.2 Amps or about a third of the energy of your typical CFL at same brightness. Thank you for sharing your wonderful projects.

It would be interesting to see what each of these lighting projects do to a otherwise completely dark room. The lighting shown here is a tradeoff for the needs of a quality video, as this one. I won't be able to tell if these color strips have a orange or blue tint to it because of these external sources for example. There is an external light at https://youtu.be/V5uycGosYq4?t=708 casting a shadow on the aluminum bars. There is an glaring external light on the left side at https://youtu.be/V5uycGosYq4?t=271 . So I'm not sure the lighting effect of the project is as powerful as shown.

I made lights for my living room based on your 3rd project, the result is impressively bright, thanks a lot for the idea. You can see the project on these links: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/488499890825030196/ and https://www.pinterest.com/pin/488499890825030188/

Anyone who has any recomendations for led lights you which you can change their color, and it would also be really nice if it was powered by usb. Thanks for any suggestions!

Estimated maximum power consumption for the lights: Strip work light - 1.6m, 100 LEDs: 20W/1.6A (equivalent to 100-150W incandescent) Small wall light - 0.5m, 30 LEDs: 6W/0.5A (equivalent to 30-50W incandescent) Window sized light - 5m, 300 LEDs: 60W/5A (equivalent to 300-500W incandescent) Have i made a mistake somewhere?
