I am wanting to install these lights in a custom headboard as reading lights. Will the light reach between 18-24 inches for reading?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 24, 2013
Answer:Yes, the light will reach but I would personally recommend a bright light fixture for reading lights. These items are designed for accent lighting.

Answer:Yes. I have two of these lights positioned over a desk in a large built in unit. The lights are approximately 40" from the desk surface and light everything up perfectly.

Answer:Yes, if installed above your reading area. (I would not mount them in the vertical face of the headboard and try to swivel them down enough to point at your reading area, however.) The two different lenses will help you adjust for a wider or narrower beam as needed based on your distance and preference. Since this is a bedroom application, remember these LEDs are not dimmable, and also consider where you'll hide the power supply. I have installed them in art niches and above a breakfast bar and they are great for each of those applications.

Answer:I think it is sufficient and I suggest closer (18 inch) is better.

Can I use these lights in a shower niche?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 5, 2014
Answer:No because they are not suitable for wet locations.
By Keith from Midland, MI on September 5, 2014
Answer:I would not think that is a good idea, they are not water proof. They sit in the hole provided with spring clamps and nothing seals the fixture for moisture.

Is this unit UL rated?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 14, 2012
Answer:The actual fixture is not UL rated but the drivers are UL recognized.

I'm planning to have lighting inside of upper kitchen cabinets for decoration purpose. I have width of 26", 18", 35" cabinets. How many LED light is sufficient for each cabinet? I will probably use 80° flood application.
By Lee from Indian Trail, NC on August 20, 2013
Answer:One. I have two 46" wide bookcases with one of these lights in the center at the top. It more than sufficiently lights everything up for viewing.

What will the distance be from the 1.25-watt mini-swivel LEDs down to the shelf/object below that you want to light? One light is likely sufficient for your 18" cabinet, but you may want 2 & 3 for your larger cabinets, depending on how far the light will travel, what's in the cabinet (reflective vs. non-reflective items, etc.), and the overall effect you want. This is a high-quality product I've installed in my home both to display art in wall niches and to provide task lighting over a breakfast bar. Both applications work great, look great and get compliments from our guests. Hope this helps.

Answer:Unless you're planning to study organisms under a microscope, I think two would be fine.

Hi! I am thinking about using this light to install in a display cabinet that I will build. In looking at the installation instructions, I do not see information regarding the amount of space/ventilation needed behind the lights. Do you have that information, or is ventilation not an issue with these lights? Thanks!
By Mark from Wisconsin on October 9, 2014
Answer:No heat concerns that I am aware of. I would leave a little space between the back (top) of the light just in case. (Just so it's not touching) It's only about an inch or so thick. It's an impressive little light. It's bright.
By Dave from Chicago on October 9, 2014
Answer:As far as ventilation, it would be minimal since the wattage is so low, plus that they are LEDs.
The wire leads are a small diameter, so they are very manageable, and you don't need to run 14 AWG between them and the power supply since they are low power & low voltage.

I am building a wall of open cabinetry (stacked boxes under a staircase), and would use a total of 14 of these lights for this application (1 for each cabinet/box). Is it possible to link 4 sets together? Is there a better way to accomplish, i.e., a larger driver/transformer to support all 14? The lead wires should be long enough for most, but if I kept all connections in one junction box (preferable), would need a lead wire 90"+ for a few. Any help you could provide would be appreciated.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 20, 2014
Answer:Yes, it is possible to connect 14 of these lights to a single driver.
This is the driver you would need to use - http://www.pegasuslighting.com/constant-current-led-driver-15w-350ma-hardwire-dimmable.html
