Super Thin LED Tube
Its got wires coming out of both ends, so you can easily daisy-chain multiple tubes together. Or if you just want to use one tube, thats fine too. You can leave the power wires on the other end hanging, or snip them off.
Just hook up the power wires to 12 volts, and you're good to go. Each tube draws about 120 mA (power consumption).
Its not designed to be 100% submersible and waterproof, but rather "splash-proof".
Available in 6 vibrant colors: Cool White, Warm White, Red, Blue, Green, and Amber.
If you need it even thinner, you can remove the circuit board of LEDs from the plastic tube.
And if 8 inches is too long, you can easily cut it down between every third LED. A set of 3 LEDs takes up about 3/4 inch (2 cm). When you cut it, you'll be able to re-use both ends, but you won't be able to solder new wires to any internal segments.
Super Thin LED Tube Technical InfoCurrent draw: about 120 mA
Number of LEDs: 27 LEDs (you may cut between every 3rd LED)
Wire length: 6 inches of power and ground wires come out of both ends.
The gold wire is power (12+), and the silver wire is ground (12v-).
Dimensions with plastic tube:
Length of LED tube : 20 cm (just under 8 inches)
Diameter of LED tube : 6 mm (just under 1/4 inch)
Dimensions without plastic tube (yes, you can remove the outer tube!):
Length of circuit board: 19 cm (about 7.4 inches)
Width of circuit board: 3 mm (about 1/8 inch)
Height including LEDs: 2.5 mm (about 1/10 inch)

If 8 inches is too long for your project, you can easily cut the circuit board down between every third LED. A set of 3 LEDs takes up about 3/4 inch (2 cm).
When you cut it, you'll be able to re-use both ends, but you won't be able to solder new wires to any internal segments! Here's why:
Thin LED light bar in a tube
wayne smith from Port Orange, FL
Bought two of the light tubes/bars in part to put in my gun safe as an experiment (red). Wish i had got more at that time , so I'm back getting more. They are very bright and work well, can be hidden easily under shelves ect. If your a DIY person pick some up and play.
Cool Super thin LED tube
Steven Hung from Tampa, FL
These LED lights are small and bright. The diameter of the tube is closed to the size of a miniature glass fuse or miniature ceramic fuses about 6 mm. Chassis-Type Fuse Holder 270-739 from Radio Shack is perfect holder after bending the metal wire contacts. Once mounted on the fuse holder the tube can be rotated 360 to provide some control to the amount of light. I used the setup for ambient lighting in my car to provide light in the foot well. Rotating the LED either forward or backward, front or back I have some brightness level control without using a dimmer.
Great LED bar!
Ben C. from Pittsburgh, PA
I installed this bar, in Cool White, in replacement of my OEM halogen license plate lamps. For as thin and small as they are, they let off more than enough light to illuminate the entire area. Officers should never have trouble seeing my registration stickers again. Another thing that I love is the fact that they perfectly match my Osram D2S CBI HID bulbs :)
used in FrozenQ Liquid Fusion V Series 250 ml Reservoir
Damien D Ortiz from Miami, FL
this is just the perfect thickness to slip into the FrozenQ reservoir. and has a great even spread. Also gets rid of the need to use the a cathode and the inverter kit. I will definitely post pictures when i complete the PC build, plus more lights to come
Allen Ray from Gallatin, TN
These things are really small, smaller than a wooden pencil and have a light out put greater than the LED strips, tubes, and cathodes that I've seen.
Definitely worth the price.
Dusty Kirkham from Manchester, TN
This little tube is very small and very bright. You could use it for a variety of applications. This will fit almost anywhere and give off more than enough light for whatever need you might have.
