Michael;any base with g-4 or m 16  will except the led. or you can solder direct to the led studs and make your own fixtures or modify some existing ones.

I think they were from Arizona. I'll see if I can find label tomorrow. I used the 300 per roll. If you want allot of light go for more.  $12.50 roll

I did a search on Ebay and found 200+ listings for "led strip lights USA".  There are 30,000+ listings if the USA portion is dropped.

I'm following this with interest because I'm trying to find a fixture I can hang inside an existing lampshade, running the powercord to the back of an end table, then down into a drawer to a rechargable battery. That way, I can remove the battery occassionally for recharging and have a lamp where there is no receptacle.

Dennis you can buy the G-4 receptacle for about $3 to fit the individual led Like DKO bought (12 Volt) can use M-16 receptacle also just need to bend prongs a little.     Local lamp Shop should have receptacle.  Bob

you can also buy the led light bulbs from china = the mr16 base ones - that you get a remote with to turn it on, and change to whatever color you want, and do other color sequences...
i bought 2 just to see what they were, cost around 9 bucks each shipped...

now my wife says i have a disco bus... Grin

Bob, how did you cover the LED strip lights so they don't look like you attached a long narrow circuit board to your ceiling?

I just bought a nice looking bronzed fixture at HD on sale for $13, that had a new style bulb called a GU10 base with a MR16 body, got a LED 12V from phillips, expensive at $30 but 60,000 hrs and 3 watts, no heat, to replace the halogen, saves wattage, saves heat, and now hanging down, bulb and lampshade are secure with this 1/4 turn twist lock bulb, lvmci...

i read on the forum about LED Super Lights, we changed the lighting  in our coach to LED Strip Lights works great looks great and they are great people to deal with. Shipping is high so order enough to make it worth the shipping . The shipping cost the same as one light .We orderd ours from LED Super Brights of St.louis.
