    We have had a bargain today at Aldi, power LED lighting 9.99p slimline, silver, 41 x 5 x 1.5 cm (w x h x d) will fit under cuboards in motorhome, great. We've been looking around the MHshows, found them to be much more expensive. :Smile:

    (DC 12v) 6 LEDS 0.5 W and they come with a plug in adapter 3w AC 120-240v - 50/60Hz. The plug in adapter has a jack plug that plugs into the light strip that has a touch sensor switch. Hope this info helps.

    No they are not rechargable. The ones you have found, we bought the same we paid 9.99p at shepton mallet show last year.

    The ones from Aldi are in a silver slimlinecasing very elegant.

    Ah I think that would make them easier to fit. These things are quite rugged because they are encased in plastic, but you need some means of holding them up, a separate switch, and a low amperage fuse.
    Whilst you are in Aldi you may see Duct Tape, and 1lite tins of metal paint, both of which is the best quality I have ever found :thumb:

    For fixing them up I would use professional double sided carpet tape, incredibly strong.
