What are LED strip lights used for?

LED strip lights can be used for a variety of applications, such as brightening up shelves, display cases, cupboards, hallways, ceilings, under counters, stairs and bar tops. LED lights can also be used for signage, cinemas, buildings, aquariums, gardens and even vehicles. You can also dim the brightness and select different settings with the wireless remote control. LEDs are super-compact, they don’t radiate heat and consume only 20% of the energy that traditional incandescent strip lights use.
