I don't have 50% tax, but we have a extra customs fee
Im not using flexi strips, but ridgid Alu strips from china.
I mention SolStrip, cos thats what I have been looking at.
As well as others, but haven't found anyone selling them in EU.
Well talked with one guy, but he was not able to ship outside UK.
But common for all the Samsung chip lights I have found in EU,
the price was so high, that I didn't find it interresting to begin with.
Not when I found out the chip is 3 years old, and since I could not find anyone who had done this.
And said it couldnt be done, I figured I would give china copy's a try. And document it, for anyone to use.
As a warning or inspiration, if I have these questions. It's a fair to assume others might do to, and im happy to take one for the team.
We might have high import tax, and we got 25% on China goods too. Just there is the thing, if the pack value is under 13$ give or take. There is no import tax, customs handling fee or other taxes added. 10 china strips, free shipping 12$. No tax. Would be the same if a Solstrip was 12$, but so far I have not found anyone selling them at that price. Or any other light, with the same quality chip.
I will at some point get my hands on either Solstrips, Quantum boards or something.
And trust me when I say, I will be honest if these strips is a total waste money wise.
For me it's already been worth it, as I have fun doing this. And when I have fun, even tho I don't have alot of money. I try not to worry about money spend on the things, that makes my time fly or makes me smile.
So I will continue my quest, with hacking china strips and do other experiments, even tho it clearly pisses you off.
I am doing this to learn, im loggin on the way.
You claim you have done this already! So where is your log, why have you not shared this?
If you have, plz share a link mate!
I would love to see that and give it a read, and see how the flowers developed under the different spectrums.
Not one place have I adverticed this light, im doing some crude testing and having fun.
Ain't you some how connected to SolStrip? To be honest, I think your way out of line here.
Makes me wonder, why are you so scorn?
What don't you want me to find out and post here?
Plz do like space cake and take your attitude elsewhere, I don't really care about what you think about my test.
You clearly have something crossed, or misunderstood something some where.
In no way am I trying to spread ignorance, im simply writing down what I am doing and posting pictures.
If you got a problem with that, plz keep it as your problem from here on.
