Would 2 of these lights mounted on the top be sufficient to light a niche approximately 7in deep, 44in wide, and 60in tall? If not what would you suggest?
By Grant from Dallas, TX on April 13, 2015
Answer:Yes I do believe two of these would provide sufficient light for a niche of that size. I just finished building a new lake house and I had the challenge of finding recessed lighting for my patio that would fit in exposed beams that were only 4 inches in width. After a lot of research, I ended up going with these 1.25 watt LEDs due to their small size/cutout needed. I am glad I did because they are perfect and definitely put out more light than you would think a fixture of this size would. Please see attached for a picture of my patio with these recessed lights. Hope this helps!
By Louis from Titusville, FL on April 19, 2015
Answer:Yes, I would believe so. Space them about 6" from each end at the top to get maximum effect.

I would like to use 2 of these in a small soffit above a 4 foot high upper shelving unit in a kitchen. Will they be bright enough to light up this unit?
By Ralph from NC on January 22, 2015
Answer:Yes, they will be bright enough.

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.
By Lee from Indian Trail, NC on October 24, 2013
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.
By Chad from Reston, VA on October 24, 2013
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.
By Hanae from Minneapolis, MN on October 24, 2013
Answer:I think it is sufficient and I suggest closer (18 inch) is better.

Can these bulbs change light colors?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on January 26, 2015
Answer:No, they do not change colors.

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.
By Chad from Reston on August 20, 2013
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.
By John from Albuquerque, NM on August 20, 2013
Answer:Unless you're planning to study organisms under a microscope, I think two would be fine.
By Peter from Indianapolis on October 8, 2014
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 have a stairway with a stair above that is finished drywall, the depth seems to be good for the notch into the up stair cavity. Do you think 3 or 4 would lighten 9 rises a total of 9 feet?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on December 29, 2014
Answer:Zak, no, I do not think these would light 9ft. They are meant to light small spaces like inside of a cabinet.
By Keith from Midland, MI on December 29, 2014
Answer:I installed two of these in the top frame of a Murphy bed for reading. Those two lights are very good lighting in that 5 foot space. I changed to the wider angle lens and I believe If you did that and space out the lights it would do a good job of lighting 9 steps.
By Dave from Chicago on December 29, 2014
Answer:No. Can you use two sets of 4 along the SIDES of the stairs (movie theater like)?
By Scott from Boston on October 18, 2014
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
