Has anyone seen these?


Lemonbest® Dimmable 110V 5W LED Ceiling Light Downlight , Warm White Spotlight Lamp Recessed Lighting Fixture , Halogen Bulb Replacement

http://www.amazon.com/Lemonbest%C2%A...essed+lighting
they say they just pop into the ceiling and they accept 120 volt household wiring. my question is how do you wire them? they obviously need a j-box for the wires after the driver, but where do you put it without it being "hidden"? I have some recessed wall niches that I would like to use these in, but where do I put a j-box/ how do I wire them? is there a video showing their installation? any help is appreciated. thanks

Certainly not UL listed; probably can't be installed in a code compliant manner. If I were going to use it, I would install a box or a conduit body in the space accessible behind the light, and put the driver inside it.

There are no instructions that come with these?

This exact light was discussed here several mo ths ago. General consensus was that there is no compliant way it could be installed under the NEC.

Thats unfortunate... they are so cheap for leds. I was so hoping to be able to use it. I need 6 compact recessed (preferably led) lights on the cheap.
