Help Choosing Components for Small Project
« on: December 30, 2020, 12:22:44 PM »
I am adding lights to a woodworking project and want to make sure I have my components right. I've worked with household LED's and battery operated non-LED's in the past, but this is new to me.

I've got a rectangular work surface just smaller than 2' x 3' with an LED strip (behind frosted plexi) lighting it from the perimeter. I want it to be warm white only, battery powered, and physical controls for on/off and dimmer.

What I think I need is a 5v dimmable WW strip, 3 batteries/holder, and a low voltage DC speed controller between the two. Throw out the controller and remote that comes with most light strips.
Does that sound correct?

Also, the set I am looking at is 2835 chips, not quite 10 per foot. Does that sound like the right amount of lumens for the low to mid range of task lighting?
