Answer: 
Our power supplies can be installed inside cupboards without cooling concerns. Armacost Lighting power supplies are air-cooled units, 1 cubic foot of airspace is usually recommended to properly cool the unit. Most typical cabinets have more than adequate space to house a power supply without issue. All of our power supplies also feature thermal overload protection, and will automatically enter protection Read More

Answer: 
Hello LED16,
Have no fear about any heat generated by the power supply. I have mine in a 18" x 24" Kraftmaid Natural Oak cabinet, along with my spices, oils etc. There is no heat build up in there at all. I even just touched it, with my lights being on now for two hours, there is negligible heat on the power supply.

Answer: 
Yes, indeed you can and I often do secure it inside the cabinet above the microwave because I know I can obtain my 120 VAC source there. The only place I recommend you do not put the power supply is in a hot attic, especially surrounded by insulation. That is the only place I've had a power supply fail.

Answer: 
Yes indeed you can use a regular residential switch. You have to decide if you're going to switch the 120 VAC input power or the 12 VDC output power. I like to switch the 120 VAC power because I like the idea of the power supply not operational when the lights are off.

Answer: 
Yes, but use the switch to control a 120V outlet and plug the transformer into the outlet.
The dimmer goes in the 12V line after the transformer. Shutting off the dimmer does NOT shut off the transformer which will use electricity 24/7 if it is not switched off from the 120Vs. Yes, the transformer uses electricity even if the lights are shut off with the dimmer.

Answer: 
As long as the receptacle is switched, yes.
Remember, these lights do not wire directly to 120V AC power. You are required to purchase the 30-60W power supply and that power supply plugs in to a standard receptacle. If that receptacle is switched, then yes, you can turn them on off with a wall switch.

If the receptacle is switched, and you do not intend on always adjusting the dimmer, you can hide the dimmer in the cabinet (forgo the wall mount option) and simply turn the lights on and off via the wall switch. Read Less

Yes, you can use only one power supply for two 12' strips, but I would recommend you purchase a 5 amp (60 watt) 12 VDC power supply. Use your search engine for 12V 60 watt power supply and you'll find lots of options.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 195 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great undercabinet lighting I had an electrician install the direct connect dimmable DC power supply then I installed the lights and stuck them to the bottom of the cabinet. The light strip itself was very easy to maneuver around corners without the need for cutting and re-splicing. What I like the best is the constant stream of light all the way across the strip, there are no dark spots. I have this on a dimmer switch and I found that only half brightness is more than enough. The two pictures show the slightly different coloring but they definitely look more cool white I think because of the backsplash. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best choice for under cabinet lights These LED lights went up as easy as tape. The only trouble I had was the direction the tape fit in to the connectors. Integration with a dimmer and power supply was a breeze. And they look fantastic. They are far more energy efficient than the halogen spot lights normally used, and require far less effort to install. I had to drill some holes through my cabinets for wires to pass through, and I did a more advanced installation where I needed to install a receptacle above my cabinets and also install the low-v dimmer in the wall, but these things are not needed in many basic installations. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NOT WHITE LIGHT, BLUE LED HUE If your looking for white warm under cabinet lighting, skip this! The white comes out as a blue hue and makes food look awful. However, we are buying more to do over and under the cabinets. The colors and color options are incredible. If you go to strobe and hold the speed up button, it is an actual strobe light. We will have two total so we can do two different colors for sports games and holidays like fourth of july (red and blue) or green and yellow for Green Bay Packers. Kitchen is only half done and just playing around with it since it will definitely not be used under the counters for normal light. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy camper I purchased these lights two months ago and am very happy with them. I had them installed by an electrition only because he did the wiring in the kitchen remodel, and he a family member so no cost to me, but they are easy to install.They are very bright and you really need a dimmer switch to bring down the brightness. We will see how long the individual lights last but I see no problem. July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Lighting for a good price! Lights were pretty straight forward to install. The biggest issue is getting the wires to all the cabinets so they are hidden. I choose to attach the lights on the inside ledge of the cabinets so you don't see the LED reflections on my counter tops. I also thought I may need the dimmer but I actually liked the brightness without a dimmer. Did my whole kitchen for around $100.00. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful, soft accent lighting. The LED warm white tape light provides beautiful, soft accent lighting. Installation was done by a licensed electrician. He had some issues with installation but resolved issues to his and our satisfaction. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fun project. Customer loved it. Best I've seen so far. Really bright. Warm white. Easy to solder to the little solder bumps at multiple locations on the tape. It's hard to see the plus & minus symbols so be careful there cause it won't work if you get it wrong. I used some heavier old speaker wire to join em. I put a switched outlet inside cabinet. The power supply is NOT included, it's extra so it can be pricy. It wasn't in stock at my local Depot. February 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality tape lights I've used a lot of different LED tape lighting, and this tape light is of the utmost highest quality. It is also the highest lumen output as well. I still use super glue when securing it to surfaces, as I don't trust the tape but also will admit I haven't used it without super glue. I just wish the cost would come down on these. I also wish I could pick these up at the store rather than have to order them online. December 29, 2015
