Easy Closet illumination

Just a small light, big results. Purchased puck lighting from IKEA and used in our dark closets. Results and usability is outstanding, so just throwing this out there in some pics. Lights are motion sensitive so they remain off when the door is closed and immediately turn on when you access the closet.

IKEA lighting hack

LED light strip, aluminum color.

I bought several of these cabinet lights about five years ago. They were listed as "Striberg" then, but the exact same light now (in appearance) is the "Norrfly" LED light strip, aluminum color. Previously, the input voltage was 12 volts. So, I used them in my RV where they have worked wonderfully connected to the 12 volt system. No power converter was needed. I recently bought two more of these for the same purpose, but then discovered that IKEA had changed the specifications to 24 volts. Why do that and eliminate an entire section of market that uses 12 volt systems? This would include off-grid use in remote cabins and tiny houses that use solar and battery banks for power. How did switching to 24 volt improve the product? It's really too bad, because the 12 volts lamps produce a really nice light and have been exceptionally reliable.

I use LED puck lights that run off AA batteries. They work well, easy to install with double sided foam tape and I have yet to change the batteries in almost four years.
