IKEA has seemingly discontinued all Flourescent Tube based lighting products. So we are gently exploring the LED replacement alternatives.
In general LED lights have uses as background lighting, but it is difficult to get sufficient light from them as compared to filament or flourescent tubes, hence our reluctance until now.
We have just finished testing DIODER. What is it and why is it just brilliant , well for us ....
DIODER is a battery powered, 6 LED light strip with a on off light sensor
It is designed to be placed inside a drawer. When a drawer is opened the LED lights start for 15 seconds, and when the drawer closes it shuts down after a further 5 seconds.
I believe the trigger is a motion rather than light sensor.
BUT: You can place it anywhere
In a clothes Cupboard: When door opens, light comes on
On a wall by our Car: The garage auto lights are dodgy, when I approach the car the light triggers
In my Computer Testing Rack: As I approach, the light switches on briefly, allowing me time to connect or disconnect my gadgets from the charging stations.
Let us overlook the tight, sealed and extremely difficult to open plastic package. The Dioder costs practically nothing! About 15GBP (25 CHF)
Summary: Dioder is an inexpensive and innovative, automatic on/ off battery powered LED light. Recommended
