Probably brighter. I replaced an 18 inch fluorescent light fixture and it was about equivalent, just a little brighter when I removed the plastic covering the fluorescent bulb that had yellowed. It will also depend on what fluorescent bulb you had; white, cool white, daylight, etc.

I doubt it. They can be on a switch though and often are.

If you don't have a fascia dropdown you will see the light, but I like the slimline design and with the buttons in the back you don't see them either.

Hello Valued Customer, thank you for your question. You would use the same gauge of wire that you used to originally wire the fixture to the quick connect clips. The quick connect has an additional terminal that you can use to insert another wire for linking multiple fixtures other.

No, the input is 110 AC.

Can this light be wired using a 14/3 extension cord?

You can do that BUT, it maybe UN-SAFE and in violation of electrical codes. Should you do it? I wouldn't and I'd find way to hard wire it.

what is wattage equivalent?

Asked by jackl June 7, 2020

I ganged two of these together to replace a florescent fixture. Keep in mind that they have less volume than even a under-counter florescent fixture and both the switch and electronics limit where access holes can be punched.

I used both the 24 in. and 18 in. Enbrighten LED lights to replace all of the fluorescent under cabinet fixtures we had in the kitchen. I was lucky in that the romex feed to each fluorescent fixture was off center enough that I was able to work out an entry point for the LED fixtures. The fluorescent fixtures were both deeper and made of thicker gauge metal. I had to connect two lights in series to match the 3' and 4' lengths of the fluorescent fixture. And, since all of the under counter lights are in series as well, that is a lot of wire to pack into the much smaller LED fixtures. I loved the press fit AC connectors in the the new fixtures as they had two open contacts for easy daisy chaining. I did buy a 1/2 inch sheet metal hole punch and a nibbler to make the new AC openings. Probably overkill. Also, if you are daisy chaining two fixtures in line like I did, leave a gap between them so that you can fit both covers back on. I used a multipurpose Nm/Bx Cable Connector for 1/2" knockout to connect the fixtures together and protect the wires, but left the nut loose to allow for the covers. I barely left enough gap with the first two I did. Once again, probably overkill

Great Product for our Kitchen Remodel
We installed these lights this week in our kitchen, and we are very happy with them. We like the option of selecting the light color that looks best with our countertops and backsplash. The size/length options and thickness worked great for our application too. Installed the 18", 24" and 36" lights with ease.

Hard wired eight of these lights to a single switch for a kitchen remodel. Each package comes with one armored cable connector for a 1/4" hole. I wired several lights in a line from one power source so I had to purchase additional 1/4" connectors from a local electrical supply as Home Depot does not carry these small connectors. Very bright on the daylight mode. The other two modes offer softer lighting if wanted. Completely met expectations.

No problems
I read some issues with the reviews that concerned me such as flimsy aluminum housing, stripped screws, and importantly small space within the housing for wires but I bought the 24 inch to try one out. No problems it took about a half hour to install. Two small screws on the housing take the top cover off. Yes, the housing is thin aluminum but that’s not a problem because it’s mounted under the cabinet, I just had to be a little careful removing the end knockout so as not to bend the housing. It includes a wire clip for the housing. Once opened you will find the hot neutral and cold wires run from one end of the fixture in a channel to abut to the 3” shy other end. The wires can be removed from the channel easily and reconfigured and directed to either end of the unit. No problem. Each has a plug-in type wire nut. There are two keyhole mounting holes in the back of the fixture compartment, simply hold up the fixture where you want it and mark where the holes are. Be sure to pre-drill As it makes it much easier. I put the two screws in about 3/4 of the way And then slid on the light fixture Through the keyholes and held it in place while I tightened the screws- It wasn’t that hard I fed my house wires into the unit about 3 inches... I did not want to put too much wire in the fixture because I had read reviews that there’s limited space ..Stripped about 3/8 of an inch off my 14 gauge Romex wire before inserting them into the fixture As it’s easier than once it’s inside. Plug the black to black, white to white, green to green. And there was plenty of room for additional length of wire. Held a cover over it and replace the two screws to hold it on. If you’ve ever install the light fixture, on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give this project 3, maybe a four cause it’s a pain to hold your head down and look up

Bright under cabinet light!
This bulb is quite bright! We installed to replace a fluorescent bulb that kept burning out prematurely. Other reviews helped me understand the wires simply push into the provided electrical connectors and the Install was straight forward. Agree with other reviewers that the font size in the provided instructions is quite small, but the installation instructions are also available electronically. Overall took a bit over an hour to complete swap and clean up. Hoping this will last for quite a while.
