Here is some information to help you choose the right LED tape for your application.
Firstly you must decide on where you are fitting the LED tape:
Under Kitchen cabinets: If you are looking to install lighting under your kitchen cabinets as ‘working light’ - light bright enough to complete general tasks without any other lighting required - about the same light as a fluorescent tube . Then the LED tape you require is the high bright 14.4w per metre type.
What else do I require once I have selected the LED tape I want?
All LED tape requires either a 12v or 24v transformer to be powered. The standard 4.8w LED tape is 12v and the high powered 14.4w LED tape is 24v. To determine what size you transformer you require here is a table:
