Smile Cabinet Lighting - 16XRB

I purchased and installed these today - they are awesome!!!
Two in the outside compartment and 4 in various interior cabinets. I'm almost tempted to buy another set....

They operate either by pressing the globe or using the remote. We found that as long as the cabinet or compartment door is open, the remote will still work without having to actually point it at the light. This is perfect for the under-sink cabinets. You can dim the lights with the remote and it even has a timer function. You're only limited by your imagination.

I got ours at Costco, but there are some online retailers as well.

Enjoy!!!

I found them here online; they look pretty good. I've been wanting to put lights in my cabinets.
Thanks

OP let us know how the battery life is. I found those online but the reviews said batteries didn't last more than a few weeks because the lights are always on some kind of standby looking for a signal from the remote. Not sure if I'm paraphrasing that correctly but a lot of reviews said short battery life.

A review would be great once you've used them for a month or so. Thanks.

Battery Update:

I removed the batteries last week prior to putting the trailer in storage. All the lights still worked with no noticeable decrease in intensity.

I installed these in my TT also and the batteries were gone in a month. Very disappointed! Now I have to remember to always have fresh batteries with me, or try to remember to remove the batteries after a trip.
