Sticky leds prewired anyone use these?

HD Blazingwolf mentioned these so I gave them a google. seems really simple all you need is a power supply, but are they worth it for growing plants? Site I found them at didnt list a wattage. Probably be fine for moonlights but not sure about anything else.

Without a link, I'm not 100% sure which product you're talking about. But I did try using the pre-made LED strip lights. The result was post #1 on the DIY disaster thread! LOL

Really depends on the specific LEDs you're talking about.

If you have enough 5050SMDs, you can use them on shallow tanks for low-medium light.

Hi kwheeler91,

The more I use these LED lamp arrays the more I like them. No power supply needed; run on 120 VAC; very good PAR ratings.

I don't think you can buy those yet. (I can't find them on their site yet.)
