So, I’ve been ordering LED accent products for years to supplement my stuff, using superbrightLEDs.com. I’ve generally been satisfied with their product and the timeliness of their deliveries. Then Facebook advertised a subset of Wish, called Geek, which offers tiny electronics products at RIDICULOUS discounts. Like $2 for a product you’d pay $20 for elsewhere. I was suspicious, but figured I could spare a couple bucks to find out.
So far, I’ve had good luck. They have little LED products that might even be from the same manufacturer as my original supplier! So I thought I’d share, with a few caveats/disclaimers:
You have to create an account to view the products. This kept me away from the site for a long time, but one day I was bored and decided… meh.
Trigger Warning: Gambling or gambling like environment. Their site is SUPER gimmicky, with flash deals on almost everything you buy. So if you’re sensitive to video poker, or have difficulty with impulse control, be careful.
Shipping is slow and promised dates are not especially reliable (think 90s catalog shopping). But I figure, many of you are in the same boat as me. If you don’t have your glowforge yet, why does it matter that your materials take a while to show up?
I’m still ordering very carefully. I’m sure with the kind of discounts they offer that some of these products, some of them have GOT to be defective. I may have just gotten lucky. But I tend to order one of something at a couple bucks, wait until it arrives and test it, then order a handful. Since time isn’t an issue at the moment, I’d rather save the money.
So anyway, despite the caveats I still think it was worth sharing. If nothing else for all the little LED projects people are creating, you can get super cheap LED components there.
