These are aquarium lights, Zetlight Lancia series.

Thanks. Though my post clearly has problems! I can clearly see that I wrote it before taking a nap, I was dead after a long week at work.

If your electricity isn't cheap, it is best to avoid the cut-to-length style LED tapes.
No, it wasn't cut to length lights, the ones I saw are a fixed size but can be extended by clipping/plugging them together.

Oh, OK. It is the same type, which adjust the current by built-in resisters, so you can use a constant volt power supply (e.g. 12V or 24V). It probably requires about 2x more electricity to get the same amount of light.

Good to know! Will avoid those types then, I don't feel like unnecessarily increasing my electricity bill.

Recently I used VIPARSPECTRA Reflector Series 450W and I bought it by checking best led grow lights for growing marijuana.

Be careful relying on pot grower info.

Pot growers are the most extreme (orchids growers come in second) when it comes to wanting "the best (whatever)" to maximize the growth of their plants, so open themselves up to paying exorbitant prices.

Before I became the sole US retailer for Concentric Ag Garden Solution, there was a guy buying it in 55-gallon drums and repackaging and reselling it to pot growers for 250% of my price.

I'm not saying that the pot-oriented stuff is bad for our plants; just be wary of gouging. Now that I have an ocean-going boat, for example, I have noticed the same thing - a "marine-" anything costs a hell of a lot more than does a non-marine version, even if they're identical.
