|Some components of my LED kit|
I love LED ribbon. It is easy to quickly add a light in a tight places.
My kit has been a work in progress. I started over a year ago. My motivation was a couple jobs using LED ribbon that did not go a quickly or trouble-free as I would like. The biggest problems I found are time-consuming-to-use connectors, and sometime bad connections, that light ribbon comes with.
Anything that is not quick or reliable makes me look bad.
My kit is 24 volt bi-color ribbon. It has an excellent CRI of 95 in tungsten and daylight. I use simple electric connectors; the water-proof LED type, which just push together. (These come with fastening nuts, which I don't use and discard.) I put together my own flicker-free dimmers; 2-channel PWM. I also put together a couple 12 to 24 VDC transformers for car use, which plug into a lighter outlet.
This scene is almost completely lit with LED ribbon:
