They are very bright or dim whichever setting you pick…I use the 50%, 75% and 100% when I’m working in the kitchen on the counters…..At night when we need a small light I use the sky/moon setting. it keeps it light enough if you want to get a drink or a snack. Also sometimes I have used them just because they look nice. When I have company, I put them on 50% or 75%. It makes for a cozy look. I’m so glad I got these. -Angie from Amazon

These lights are an economical choice compared to buying battery powered LED fixtures under cabinet. I was worried that they wouldn’t provide enough light, but when I saw “250lm/PCS,” they are surprisingly bright.

The light it produces is a warm white, similar to incandescent bulbs. It has some flashing functions, which are interesting, but I don’t think I will use.

This is better than I thought. I was thinking you would have to place these where you wanted then run a USB mini-cord to them on a long cable to recharge them. But it turns out that it actually use the provided double back tape to a magnetic strip then the light attaches magnetically to the strip.

So when the time comes to recharge them, you simply remove them from the magnetic strip, charge, then put them back on when fully charged.

Litever give you the option to use all double sided sticky tabs to install everything or they also provide brackets and screws. You could use the brackets and screws as they do get warm after being on and we don’t sure how that would work with the adhesive long term.

Whether it is price, service life or brightness, this lamp is top-notch. But what customers complain most is the color of the cable and the extension cord.

They are not providing enough cable management clips if you have to use extension cables​. Besides, it could be better if the cable is white.

I have bought battery lights that do not provide sufficient lighting. I decided to bite the bullet and buy a light that my husband could install directly and would provide the proper light we need under my cabinet above my kitchen sink. Now I don’t worry about batteries. I put the light on & can work in my kitchen without putting the overhead light on. It has amultiple lighting options and different lighting modes. I love it!!!!! Very much worth buying.  –DebM form Amazon

This stunning LED Under Cabinet Fixture is constructed with an aluminum housing and a matte white polycarbonate diffuser. It has a hi-low rocker switch for brightness and a slide selector switch for changing Kelvin color temperature.

This sleek fixture features edge lit technology which means no hot spots on the polished marble or granite counter top. 1 inch low profile design means the fixture remains hidden. Rated to 50,000 hours and dimmable with most ELV dimmers, this fixture is the most versatile task light on the market today.

I really like the two brightness and 3 color options. This may be why they are so expensive.

They can be easily switched from 2700k (warm) to 4000k (cooler and brighter), thus provide nice ambient light at 2700 and great task light when on 4000.

4 things to choose best led light under cabinet

1. Fluorescent or LED?
The LED feels cool too, and it will last for 50,000 hours before the bulb needs to be replaced (nearly five years). The initial price tag is more expensive, but if you consider saving energy in the future, the LEDs under the cabinet lights start to make sense. They also emit bright white light, which is very attractive for kitchen design. If you are looking for the most energy-efficient option, choose LEDs that are usually dimmable.

2.Puck or Linear?
The style of the luminaire is another consideration. We usually recommend installing linear lights under the cabinet because they provide even and evenly distributed light and eliminate shadows across the work surface. However, many people prefer the style of spotlights under the kitchen cabinets, which create brilliance in more concentrated areas. Each type of light can work normally, this is actually just a matter of preference.

3. Embedded or surface mount?
Many people think that non-recessed cabinet lights will be eye-catching lamps from below the cabinet. This is indeed not the case-most surface mount options are so thin that you have to actually extend your head under the cabinet and look up at the actual fixture. The good news is that this decision is hard to go wrong.

4. Hard-wired, plug-in or battery powered?
“Hard-wired” lighting fixtures are directly connected to the power source. Of course, plugging in the power under the cabinet light requires you to plug the cord into the nearest power outlet. Determine the preference of the installation and placement type-if there is no suitable socket in the kitchen, you may have to choose a hard wire, or go completely cordless with a battery operated under cabinet light.
