With a cutting interval of 10cm, you can even trim it down to the perfect length for your needs too. Please be aware though that we cannot accept returns on custom strip light lengths, so take the utmost care if you do need to trim it down.
Once plugged in, the 3m commercial grade adhesive on the back allows you to stick it to nearly any flat surface, though we cannot guarantee how well it will stick on any given surface.
Using a single colour dimmer, you can also dim your LED tape too, allowing to you to experiment with different effects depending on where you’re using it and what mood you want to create.
With up to 50,000 hours of life too, it gives you over 15 years of use making it a great long term purchase.
Customise Your Strip Lights!
You’ll have a couple of choices to make when buying your 3m strip light kit. The first is what kind of colour temperature you would like.
Colour temperature is simply a measure, provided in Kelvins, of how warm a light is perceived to be. The 2 choices you’ll have are either warm white (3000K) or cool white (6000K).
Warm white appears very similar to conventional halogens, and works great when trying to create a homely environment. This makes it perfect for the living room or bedroom.
Cool white is a lot brighter though, and shines with a more penetrative light. This makes it more ideal for the office or kitchen.
The other option you’ll have is if you want IP65 rating added to your strip light. The 2 digits following the letters IP (Ingress Protection) tell you how well the device protects against foreign bodies and moisture.
The 6 here means that the strip lights become completely dust proof, and the 5 indicates that it can guard against light jets of water from any direction. This allows you to use them in the bathroom, kitchen, or even outside in the garden!
As mentioned above, this 3m strip light kit is dimmable when used with a controller. We would really recommend the LED Single Colour Dimmer on the basis of its simplicity.
It slots between the power supply and the strip lights themselves, and comes supplied with a 3 button remote control. One button allows you to switch your lights on and off, with the other 2 buttons for dimming up and down.
It would be a good idea to consider picking a profile from our selection of aluminium extrusions. Our featured 3m strip light kit is super narrow at just 8mm width, so any of our profiles will be able to accommodate it.
Better yet, the aluminium construction actually helps prolong the life of your LED tape too. This is because it helps dissipate any heat generated by them, thereby reducing the wear and tear on them!
If you’re shopping for multiple items, it may be worth knowing that spending over £40 ensures you get free shipping.

Helping The Environment
There is a massive push right now to start using green initiatives, and to be kinder to the environment.
LEDs do this admirably, because of how energy efficient they are. They convert around 90% of their energy into light, with the remaining 10% lost to heat. Incandescent bulbs however, only convert around 20% of their energy into light – meaning up to 80% is lost to heat alone.
LEDs use far less energy as a result, so less fossil fuels are burned. This eases the strain on the non-renewable sources of the world.
They’re also far easier to recycle as well because of the lack of harmful substances inside them. Fluorescents contain Mercury vapour, which is very bad for your brain, immune system and internal organs if it leaks.
It’s also hugely detrimental to wider natural ecosystems, with most people’s exposure to it coming via contaminated fish.
You can return your 3m single colour strip light kit at any point during our 14 day cancellation period for a full refund or exchange. It does have to be in re-sellable condition with the strip light in one continuous 3m roll. We cannot accept returns on any strip lights that have been cut.
You’ll also get a 2 year warranty period from Mirrorstone, covering you for any unlikely problems that occur with your purchase.

What a product, i did cut the strip, really easy, stuck them underneath top kitchen cupboards.looks really professional, now it's a custom fit.I used a bit of glue,would not stick to my units. The 4.8 watt was just right. But knowing what i know now I perhaps I should have bought a dimmer to create mood lighting. Still time, the company should be prowd there selling a quality product. You can buy cheaper but you will buy twice.deffiitnitley buy from them again soon.
For the dimmest setting, a very bright and sharp light. THe build quality is very good, the adhesive could be stronger but with some creative use of the lighting I got it stuck eventually.
Great product, easy to install and no big transformer.
