    Hi All

    Unbelievably I have never fitted LED tape and have always chosen LED battens.

    I have an under cabinet approx 1.5m long, any recommendations for a make type or supplier gladly recieved along with any top tips for fitting.

    Not sure about make/type but don't rely on the adhesive for fitting. Use extra fittings to fix it up.... So I've been told...

    Agree with Spoon. Existing kitchens, no matter how well you clean the surface, 3m adhesive will fail in my experience. Even brand new wall units, it doesn't always stay put. Clips or extrusions for the tape IMO.

    I've been using PowerLed tape and drivers recently, supplied by Yesss Electrical. Seems quite reliable so far. The drivers are quite bulky if you are trying to hide them under a unit though.

    Ive used crompton but had a couple of driver failures and the connections if splitting the lengths arent very good, ive also used deltech and that seems ok.

    Ansell for me. Normally use glue and activator to stick it or use extrusion.
