By basement ceiling grid is installed very close to the joists. In fact, the grid is against some pipes. I figured I would take some grief for a short time installing tiles and enjoy a higher ceiling 365 days per year!

I planned to install can lights between the joists so the layout would look a bit off in the ceiling tile. Well, one area I want to install the can lights, there are water pipes so I'm not sure I can get the cans where I want them. I found these 8W 4-Inch LED Recessed Lighting Fixture that are only 2.4" high. It looks like I would just cut the hole and these would hang right on the tile. I'm using a fairly heavy tile so I think sagging would not be a problem. Does anyone know anything about these lights? Here are two links:

There is also a six inch version but the 4" claims to be equal to a 75 watt halogen so I would think I would stay with the 4". It is also a bit thinner.

I have two concerns about these.

The first was how line voltage connects to the unit, which brought me to my second concern. I don't see a UL listing.

BTW...one link says input voltage is 100-240 VAC and the other says 100-240 V DC. I'm assuming DC is a misprint.
