Pantry Lighting

I am so pleased with the lighting in my formerly dark food pantry that I wanted to share info on the product.

I have a 2017 Forester 2401WS MBS on the Mercedes Sprinter chassis. The pantry is about 7 inches wide, 2 feet deep, 4 feet tall and unlighted. Searching it always required a flashlight.

I purchased a pair of SamSung LED Chip lights , $11 for two) and installed them under two of the six shelves. They mount with a magnetic strip using 3M sticky tape, are USB rechargable and only turn on when motion is sensed.

With just two the cabinet is well illuminated. I can easily remove one and use it elsewhere as a flashlight as well.

I did the same with my pantry last year. I used 3 led strip lights under 3 shelves. Powered by 120 volts with motion sensor control. We are seasonal permanent. Best mod yet.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

Bought a 6 pack of led lights on Amazon........install with the magnetic strip and uses 4 triple A batteries.......put them in my pantry.....which is a lot taller and wider then yours......open the door and the motion lights come on and then go off after 15 seconds.....the whole pack of lights were 25 bucks.

Okay, so when you need to charge them, do you need to remove them so the cord can be near a plug? Or is the charging cord extra long? That would be the issue for me.
