Just got a new safe for xmas, hated the lighting in it so got started on a DIY lighting project. Spent 20 minutes and $24, its pressure sensitive and lights up all compartments.

Your verdict: 8/10

Kudos to you for being ahead of most of your college peers in the exciting field of interior decorating! The lion poster really ties the room together. Keep the place this clean and score big points with the females.

Buy some plants and put them on that windowsill and your desk. Please don't over water them.

When you buy art make sure it's majority black or white. Colored accents are fine but something too loud can mess with the black and white feng shui you got goin' on.

Buy these LED lights. Better yet buy two of 'em so you know all the wall is covered. Slap in the corner between the wall and the ceiling and get some additional light in there - you're going to want something besides the overhead light and your lamp.

Go crazy and experiment with colors. Here's what the place looks like with an orange tone. Here is the place with a cool blue tone. You can also keep it a bright white light if you're a more minimalist person.

Get a place to store all the junk you have on top of your desk. Get some books in there too.

Hey RepTime, with my watch cases almost full, I thought it would be a good time to post full collection pics of my watches. The imgur link has full collection pics and up close shots of each watch with full title from the TD. I tried my best with the pics, many of the watches look better in person than what my lack of photo taking skills can display.

Why did I get into replicas?
About 2 years ago, I was in the market for a gen Rolex or Breitling, but then I stumbled upon this subreddit and here we are. I've been collecting for a little more than a year now. Currently at 54 watches with another Tudor on the way.

WTC:
I've only purchased from Intime and Trustytime. Overall, they are about the same, but Trusty time email response times are faster.
I usually bundle about 4-5 watches per order to save on shipping costs, been only buying from trustytime lately due to their lower shipping costs and promo code coupon. I haven't seen any difference in watch prices between the TDs.
Each order usually takes about a 3-4 weeks from order date to delivery. Haven't had any major issues with either TD, customs or watches arriving DOA.

Experience so far:
I don't have any one favorite watch, I like having variety and sometimes change watches throughout the day.
I have not serviced any watch yet, but each watch gets little and infrequent use.

Also, be great if you guys can recommend what my collection is missing!

My Lighting setup:

  1. LED Light Strip (Tape style so you can stick it to the glass)

  2. Power Brick for LEDs

  3. Switch for LEDs (Different styles can be used based on user pref) (!NOTE: these do not dim LEDs)

Hope I tagged this correctly, bit of a noob so my bad if I didn't.

From left to right in case someone is curious: Fremy Speeddraw (Rokka no Yuusha), Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi (HenNeko), Ao Nanami (Yozakura Quartet)

I have a couple other figures pre-ordered. Going to get a detolf soon to display them in. Does anyone have suggestions for lighting them? I was thinking of getting something like this but I'm definitely open to suggestions if anyone has more experience in the matter.

edit: added figure names + links

u/tripp- · 6 pointsr/macsetups

Ultimately, use the space you have; mitigate the clutter that exist on the real estate you have at your disposal. Made a small list of affordable items you can buy (one at a time, if need be):

small shelving unit

extended mouse pad

LED strips (best behind the desk)

velcro cable ties

Recommend a monitor and laptop stand to keep your eye level in-line with your displays.

Good luck!

u/oldcrow · 5 pointsr/3Dprinting

Here is my CR-10S.

I added the Petsfang fan fang. Added this fan to the fang.

I added these Z-Axis braces. Added these LEDs to the Z-Braces.

I'm printing on a mirror tile with a sheet of PEI bonded to it.

Last week I added the TH3D EZABL and have been encouraged by the results. It creates a Z-offset map of the build plate before every print. I can see the Z-steppers move during X-Y moves so I can tell it's working. Manual bed-leveling was working OK for smaller prints, but I could never get all 4 corners to agree with the center height. I suspect my aluminum bed plate is shaped like a Pringles chip.
I really like the Marlin Firmware over the OEM version. I don't mind not having auto-resume since I plugged my printer into a UPS system.

Right now my printer is about 20 hours into a 60-hour print of a T-Rex skull. I've been really happy with this printer! It was my first and I've been having a ball with it.

u/Miami_SH · 5 pointsr/funkopop

Nice collection! Just a little suggestion. Maybe consider adding light strips like these to the bottom of the top shelf so you could see all the Pops on the bottom shelf

u/mobscura · 3 pointsr/SavageGarden

T5s are pretty much the standard for growing carnivores indoors. I think you could get by with just one more tube and have a 2-bulb fixture. You could probably fit a 4-tube fixture within that 12.5" width, but that does become more costly.

You can get LED lights that look normal and not super weird. Here's some options for daylight-balanced bulbs. I also currently use LED stringlights like these in a small grow bucket.

It's really up to you. Also consider how much energy you want to use (how many watts) and how long you want to keep the lights running.

Whichever route you choose, I would also attach some foil or mylar to the sides of the terrarium to bounce the light back onto the plants. You can get by without super strong lights if you don't let it all spill out and keep it reflected back onto the plants.

u/RouletteZoku · 3 pointsr/funkopop

I have those lights. Here they are in a Michael's baseball bat display case, running on a rechargeable battery. Specifically this battery. They're surprisingly bright. That was just a test setup to get an idea of what the case would look like.

I've got a glow case that I started working on today. Seen here using these UV LEDs

Sure, I got it at IKEA - [this] (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60128562/) is the exact shelf. I bought the LED lights off of Amazon [here] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HSF65MC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_?ie=UTF8&psc=1) (though you need to buy a power adapter, as well).

I just used 22 gauge wire I got from Home Depot to solder the positive / negative to a 12v power supply. To turn the lights on and off, I just used a cheap limit switch:

Michael's has coupons for one item at 50% off from time to time so I was able to get the cases for $30 each.

Here is the light strip that I got:

This is enough to do both cases. For the power since I do not have them hung up where I would like them to be yet I just got a battery pack. This is the one that I am using now:

I then bought the a Y adapter so that I could power both strips at the same time.

u/JennaroniPepperoni · 3 pointsr/AnimeFigures

Thanks so much! I highly recommend these LED strips. They're paper thin so they bend easily at the corners of a detolf. You'll need this adapter for the power.

My only complaint about them is that they're a little too bright at first. You get used to them though! You can't beat this nice even white lighting and the ease of installation.

u/Norberces · 3 pointsr/kancolle

Sure first here's the LED strips, Power Adapters, and Dimmer. Looks like they've gone up in price a bit since I did it but it's still not too bad. I didn't take any in progress pictures so I'll just have to describe how setup went. The LED strips come with a sticky back side so I just stuck that to the poles on the front side of the Detolf. I used 1 LED strip, 1 dimmer, and 1 power adapter per 2 Detolfs but you could also use 1 strip per Detolf. This will give you more even lighting, and the power adapter should still be able to handle powering 2 fine, you'd just need to also buy a connector for the 2 strips. After you've got the stuff its as simple as just taping on the stip in a |‾| running from the outside poles and across the top of the Detolf, running the power cord outside of it through the gap in the door, and the plugging in the dimmer.

u/gvfb60 · 3 pointsr/ActionFigures

I used this www.amazon.com/Flexible-Non-waterproof-Christmas-Decoration-Daylight/dp/B00HSF65MC the cool thing is that you can cut them and splice them together with wires to have them spread out over shelves. There's also a wireless remote to turn them off or dim them for only a few bucks more.

u/screamingpigs · 2 pointsr/crafts

Update on the lighting~ I finally got them shipped to me ugh

I ended up using these lights in a figure 8 pattern around the inside of the box (like this). The back is 3M peel and stick adhesive, so it was pretty straight forward as far as attachment. I taped the lights down originally to see if the shape would provide the lighting I wanted and I recommend this. Once the backing was off, the lights were pretty permanent, so this way I could see what they looked like lit up.

I used a piece of white tissue paper to diffuse the light some too, so it would look more evenly lit across the night sky. Maybe colored tissue paper could add some interesting color if someone was looking to do that haha. Distance also helps diffuse the light some too, but I didn't have that much to spare so I stuck with the tissue paper.

I also cut a hole in the back of the box with my exacto knife which was tedious but it worked (a drill would have been faster for sure).

Canadian links, but they have them in other countries.

Very simple to setup - I just put it right next to the rods in the Detolf and went up and around.

u/PiperArrow · 2 pointsr/prusa3d

I bought a 12 V LED strip, like this from Amazon. I wired two equal-length strips in series, so that each strip sees 12 V. I then wired that to the PSU, so that whenever the printer is on, the LEDs are on. It works great!

u/airjam21 · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

Here's everything I purchased:

  • LED Lights. I needed two strips for my application

  • Power Supply

  • Motion Sensor. I opted for a motion sensor vs. a door sensor because we have a bad habit of leaving the pantry door open and I didn't want the lights to be on all the time. I also bought Velcro tape to adhere the lights to the wall. The LED lights come with a sticky back, but they kept falling off. Shoot me a PM if you have additional questions and good luck!
u/mcarterphoto · 2 pointsr/analog

I did some photography for a mall store display - we output transparencies and the designer got white plexiglass and clear, and clamped the film between them with c-clamps and hung wires to the clamps. But you could make a sandwich of white and clear plex, and bolt or rivet it together and mount it in front of a light box.

You could also use flexible LED strips as the light source - my understanding is you can cut them and join the wires at the end to make custom sizes or panels.

This is the better set! More length, more lights, and better stability! Just have to buy the power adapter!

u/pointandclickit · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

Not that I have seen. This strip pulls 1.5 amps. I’m not sure what the conductor size on the pcb’s is, but 22ga seems to be common for the extension pieces. I would imagine the pcb traces are smaller.

22ga wire has a an 7 amp rating. Stepping down to 23ga drops to 4.7a. And 3.5a for 24ga.

You can run all of the strips off of a single power supply if you run, say, an 18 gauge power supply wire in parallel with the strips and tap the power for each section directly off of it rather than chaining the strips.

u/exedy · 2 pointsr/funkopop

Led strips from Amazon, similar to these.

u/IGL_oo · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Does your vanity have a built in mirror? If not, Amazon Prime has lots of mirrors with LED lights already on them. They range from like $20+ and all have pretty good reviews!
I've been considering this one:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B9QUDZG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_mlHOybKHX2WDJ
($29.99)

It is a little more than I wanted to spend but I'm starting my vanity from scratch so I'm gonna need to buy a mirror and lights anyway, this seemed like the best deal in that sense.

But like someone else said, if you already have a mirror these strips are pretty cheap! Plus they're a lot more space-efficient than a lamp!

u/mizary1 · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

I am curious why these need to be automated... why not just have a switch? I'd just buy a long strip of LED lights and wire it all up myself. Then if I wanted to automate them I'd plug it all into a smart plug. You will need to drill some holes in the back of the cabinet. maybe do two strips under each shelf.

​

I'd use something like this. https://www.amazon.com/Flexible-Kitchen-Christmas-Non-waterproof-Daylight/dp/B00HSF65MC

u/electricmonk9 · 2 pointsr/AskElectronics

I would suggest using a purpose built LED strip. These things are great, you can cut them to any length and they even make waterproof versions. I don't know what voltage the RPi outputs but I believe they even make 5v versions that can be run directly from an Arduino/probably anything outputting a digital signal.

If you're set on using the LEDs you have, you can use an online calculator to figure out exactly what resistors you'll need. It shouldn't be much more complicated than the strips, you'll just have to deal with making some sort of mount/enclosure instead of just sticking them on.

If by 'control' you mean you want to dim them, look into pulse width modulation. The second strip I linked is RGB which you can fairly easily control from an Arduino/probably RPi, don't know the specifics though. Hope that helped, if you have any specific questions let us know.

u/Nodomi · 2 pointsr/amiibo

That's a nice cabinet. Please don't blow it up with IEDs.

Jokes aside, I often see/hear people recommend these led strips, though not necessarily that particular brand. I've bought colored lights from http://lighthouseleds.com/, but I can't tell you how long they'd last I haven't used them for more than a few months.

u/Ch3rryTr33 · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Idk what the name of the mirror is. I found it at Target in the mirror section. Lights were not custom. :) Link to the lights: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HSF65MC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_MwYtxbEYBEARM

u/serotoninlove · 2 pointsr/sugarfreemua

Depending on your budget, I just stuck LED strips around an existing mirror because the lighted mirrors were way too pricey for me. I bought something like this with a power adapter and stuck it on (it has adhesive on the back). Super easy, and should be <$20.

u/ChewWork · 2 pointsr/Workbenches

They provide enough light but aren't super bright, I do have the option of putting another strip across (I only used half) to make it brighter but 1 should be enough. You can't beat the price: LEDs and Power Source . I originally was going to hold them up by zip ties, but the backing is sticky enough to stay on the wire shelf. I'm not sure how well it will stand up in the future but for now it's great.

u/pokerfacetwin · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I tried gutting the old fluorescent fixtures and putting these strips in them with these power supplies. I only did two of the 6 so far because I wanted to see how they held up after a year or so.

So far so-so, its more work than its worth and I would rather buy some than do the rest of them, but I haven't found any that look good and are hard wired for 110V (most have plugs).

I suppose I will finish them eventually as I already have all the parts.

Also, I can control them all with this remote, which is nice.

u/QTheory · 1 pointr/AskElectronics

Thanks for all the help.

I have a proposed rig that I'd like to review with you.

  1. Power supply. 20000mAH as you suggested. Has a dc out.
  2. Male to Male coupler to plug in the power splitter from #3 into the power supply.
  3. Power Splitterto distribute power to the 5 panels
  4. A Dimmer is attached to each end of the splitter.
  5. Finally, the end of the led strips are connected to this DC connector cable to plug into the male end of the dimmer.
  6. [LED strip lights] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HSF65MC/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AAF37WJS3P6BT)

    I went the route of non-soldering, and I don't mind having the cable lengths. Will this work or just blow up in my face?

Slightly different form-factor, but you could always get a setup like this for less than half the cost:

LED Flexible Light Strip - $8 Prime

Power supply - $8 Prime

I'm betting someone will come along and tell me there are even cheaper options than the one I linked, especially going through a Chinese site :D

Needs to be delivered by hand by Friday.

​

Based on information I've gotten here and from friends, the guy screwed up the order and that's probably why he bailed on the job. I guess 5v is weird? And they are purple instead of white because he didn't order RGB-W. I've ordered these 12v white LEDs.

By my calculation I'll be using 90 feet per light box. Just need to figure out how to battery power those. There's a chance there will be outlets on site but the client wants battery just in case. Feel like I've got two options here, got for wall plugin and include plug in batteries. Which my friend said was a lot of necessary conversions... or find a no-nonsense easily rechargeable battery. I won't be operating these, sales people will so I need to make it simple, plug and play, either way.

Wasn't Ikea, just kept looking on eBay and someone was selling old stock. £20 for a 3 meter board so I grabbed a couple. I think Wickes is probably better than Ikea if buying new.

Adjustable legs were the most expensive at £24 for 6:

well, generally speaking the more you decide to care about aesthetics, the more money you'll need to be willing to shell out. but honestly, i think you can do the LEDs cheaper than you're expecting.

first, RGB LEDs definitely get up in the 20+ range fast, but if you drop the RGB you can get them way cheaper. if you drop the color you might be able to get them even cheaper! i mean heck, at this point the LED strip is cheaper than the fans you're buying.

not to mention you can definitely take just one of those strips and chop it up into the individual pieces you need if you're willing to do a little wiring, so you would only need to buy one of them. wiring them into the case has the added bonus of meaning you don't necessarily need a remote control to turn them on/off (just unplug them if you want them off), so you dont have to worry about whether the cheaper LED kits come with one or not. i know there are also some LED strip kits designed specifically for things like computer cases that are already broken up into a few different sections for you as well - at a glance i'm not really seeing any on amazon, i'm sure you could find them if you were interested.

case fans definitely aren't the kind of thing you should count on reselling of trading in for much value, but it's always nice to have some extra fans if you're getting into building. before you know it you'll be helping your friend with a build or building a new rig for yourself, or one of your fans will die or something and you'll be happy you have a backup - even if you have a good "lol" at that fan having purple LEDs that dont fit the current theme, it's great to have a functional fan until you can purchase a replacement.

a solid mechanical keyboard is something you can definitely count on being able to trade in for value down the road, but i'm not particularly familiar with either of the boards you're talking about so just do your research before you pull the trigger on one.

Ah, I'm looking to just have a simple white LED setup. If I were to buy this, how do I connect it to the molex connector?

u/woodfurnace · 1 pointr/DIY

You could go to amazon and get these
LE 12V DC Flexible LED Strip Lights, 16.4ft/5m LED Light Strips, Daylight White, 300 Units 3528 LEDs, Non-waterproof, Lighting Strips, LED Tape https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HSF65MC/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_O79NwbCKZR9V2
I bought a set for my gun case, for about 7 dollars more i added a remote power and fader controller. All you need is a 12vdc transformer and you will be set. You can cut them to length, and use the connectors that they have available, or solder wires in. I have done both.

u/Emmie_Zzom · 1 pointr/DIY

Ive found lighting strips at home hardware (Any home modification store would likely have them) or you could order them on amazon. Just obviously read reviews. They sometimes come with a really sticky backing thatll allow you to just stick em up, but other times theyll come with some other reinforcement or a recommended reinforcement that you have to purchase separately.

https://www.amazon.ca/RioRand-Waterproof-300LEDs-Flexible-Controller/dp/B00KUTTWFK/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_60_bs_img_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=R168WEEAD8EX90VSX1YW
^^^ Cheap and the reviews aren't bad considering the price. Also comes with self adhering double sided tape.

^^^These are just plain white it seems but again the reviews aren't bad and they're reasonably priced.

Thanks, I'm probably making this more complicated then it needs to be. These are the leds I'm using. Just bare leds.

u/zydecopolka · 1 pointr/Kombucha

For the time being, you could wrap a towel around them until you get a heat source. If there's a home brew shop near you, you might want to look for something like this or this and until you can afford more heat sources, maybe a hard sided cooler with some hot water bottles? Oh, or, something like this that you could wrap around more than one jar.

u/josiahpeters · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I can't find the link to ones I bought for our kitchen remodel back in 2013. These are pretty close to what we had. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HSF65MC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_wynpzb5W6ZPSQ

We may have ordered more of a yellow light instead of a daylight LED (more blueish). You can attach these with a very strong double stick tape without much of a profile.

u/cenobyte40k · 1 pointr/SolarDIY

depends on how often you are running that fan. That battery is pretty small and so is the panel. But I just ran a little LED tape and that worked great.

I have the panel to the controller, controller to the battery, and then battery to the fusebox/busbar and from there to the things I wanted to operate. In this case two fans, LED light inside, LED spots outside, a RV water pump for the shower, a set of USB change plugs and a set of 12v car lighter style jacks for laptops and the like. Also plugged in 500w inverter but almost never used it. Ran all the lights and fans via a set of standard household light switches I had and used left over Romex as the wiring. I have 2 100w panels and 4 t105 batteries or around 450amps at 12v.

LED tape that you can cut to the length you want and stick up: (They make it waterproof too)

Also... Search for the motion sensor . I also bought and installed the power outlet for Liberty Safes.

u/ba12348 · 1 pointr/DIY

LED strips. That one is daylight white, but you can get them in other colors or even RGB with a remote to change the color. it also doesn't come with a power supply, so you'll need a 12v power supply to go with it, the little plug in wall transformers work, the whole strip draws less than an amp. Note that while this claims to be safe to touch, exposed electronics are always a risk in a public place, you might want to look for waterproof ones that are covered in silicone. I don't think I've seen a strip like this that can't be cut, usually in 4 inch lengths.
edit Found some waterproof ones that I've purchased in the past.

u/suitedcrabs · 1 pointr/arduino

Thanks for the reply. As for the kind of strips, I got these...

LED Strips

Is there a source where I can learn about voltage drop?

What do I use to bridge the gap between strips/cabinets?

u/Spaded21 · 1 pointr/hometheater

I've bought about 20 of these and never had an issue

u/hineybush · 1 pointr/pcmods

I had the NZXT kit that /u/neums08 posted, but found that the LEDs were too far apart.

I bought this LED strip from Amazon and wired the included power jack thing to a 12v molex connection with a 100-ohm resistor in series. I wired in a power switch, and put it in the PCI slot plate from the NZXT kit. It's pretty clean looking, I just want to find something to diffuse the LEDs even more because I don't really like the point-lighting they give off.

It's essentially the same as the kit that /u/agent67248 posted, but more DIY and no RGB functionality.

I'm from Germany, but I think my father got them from OBI (a German DIY retailer). You can also get some on Amazon! They even have customer images from people who used them for their mirrors.

u/MyWorkThrowawayShhhh · 1 pointr/Bladesmith

I was thinking one of those Chinese build-your-own kits from amazon. They run off a battery I think, but there may be some that run off a wall plug too. I believe you can cut them to the size you need, and you could connect separate pieces to one control unit with a bit of soldering.

EDIT: Something like this. Never used one so I can't attest to their effectiveness
