Customer Reviews

Great Function - Installation needed modification I purchased two of the 28" units and two 11" units and they've worked fine for the 6 weeks they've been installed. Appearance and function are great. The LEDs in the fixture are not user replaceable so we'll see if they last as advertised. I'm not using a dimmer but the spec sheet on the Kobi website lists compatible dimmers. For specs. see:[...]Installation was OK but there were issues. There are several ways to wire the units: #1 - Individual power cords (included) or #2 - wiring from a junction box - both fine options. #3 - I did not like the included end-to-end connectors - they seem to be overly "sensitive" to mounting position (the lights might flicker or fail if you bump the fixture). or #4 - Purchase an optional 24" cable to join fixtures. I chose another route - I linked them using the included power cords after cutting off the plug end and connecting the cut wires to the built-in push-in wire connectors . With this method, you are not limited to the 24" inches of the optional cable, you can cut the cable to a custom length up to just under 5'. It's simple - if you know how to identify which wire from a plug should be the black or "hot" wire. If you don't know how, get someone to do it for you or purchase the optional (P/N UC-C-24) cable.My other concern is the built-in mounting screws. A nice idea gone bad - the screw heads are small (#1 Phillips) and soft metal; far too easy to "round out" the Phillips head even after providing a drilled pilot hole. Since these built in screws are recessed in the fixture, if you damage the screw head during installation, good luck getting it out. I used the provided keyhole slots with high quality screws instead. 4great light. a little tough to mount but worth the effort. Like many I found the working space for this light very very tight. Did I mention very tight ? Anyway it mounted easily enough in my space and the 42 inch one was the perfect size for the alocove and fit it better than the old flourescent light it replaced. This as great given this is a hard size to find in a light fixture. I love the very white light of the 5000K output model. I was afraid it might be on the blue end of the spectrum but there is not even a hint of blue tint to my eye, Getting the door shut over the wiring was a small challenge once all was connected. It would be nice if the wires were held in place with tie downs so they did not try to fall out while you are closing the door esepcially on this longer model. Even though I knew th specs up front it is hard to appreciate how flat this is until you have it in hand. One other minor complaint is that the tiny (and I mean tiny) power supply/driver slightly obscures one of the mounting screw holes. This made the already awkward job of mounting it in the alcove over my kitchen since a litt harder. Took me about 30 minutes to mount counting running back and forth to my building for tools. I hope it lasts since it was such a job to mount. My wire was easy to deal with sice the old light did not use a box. I just pushed the excess up into the attic space. I had considering building my own light and having a frosted plate cut for the alocove. I'm glad I did not. This was qicker, cheaper, easier and I suspect looks better than would have a custom light. 5Great light, but expensive if you must buy extra Kobi accessories I bought from Amazon one Kobi Electric K9M1 750 lm 3000K LED Under cabinet Lighting Fixture. I got the 28-inch model with a Bronze Finish. Unfortunately, it didn t work. It s easy to open these, so I opened the fixture and immediately saw that the wire feeding through the switch was not connected. Apparently, the solder joint failed. Even a cursory quality assurance pass at the factory would ve spotted this. Anyway, I returned the broken one and got another. And the second one works great. Thank god for Amazon s liberal return policy!As many reviewers have noted, there are multiple ways to wire up Kobi lighting fixtures. For our kitchen renovation, I decided to use the Kobi Electric K6M8 Junction Box (sold separately for ~$8). I also acquired a Kobi Electric K6M9 24" UC linkable Cable (sold separately for ~$15!) to connect power from the box to the fixture. I had an electrician working on the kitchen rebuild, so I had him install the Kobi Electric K6M8 Junction Box on underside of the top cabinet and connect it to power from a dimmable light switch in the wall. I then installed the light fixture and linkage cable myself.The installation was trivial for me. The electrician was helpful. But note that I did not have to open the fixture and do hard wiring. As other reviewers have noted, hard wiring a Kobi light is painful because the fixture s innards are so cramped. I saw those reviews before my purchase, and they convinced me to use the junction box configuration. BTW, the junction box has plenty of space inside it.The Kobi Electric K9M1 is a great light, in terms of its slim profile, easy to find switch, nice warm light, and dimmability. And I don t mind that the first one I bought was broken. As the popular bumper sticker says: Stuff Happens. My only complaint is that the Kobi light gets expensive in a hurry if you need to buy extra accessories, namely the Kobi Electric K6M8 Junction Box and the Kobi Electric K6M9 Linkable Cable.Note that I installed only one light fixture. With it in place, adding more will be trivial. The hard part (AC wiring) is already done, so additional fixtures can daisy chain from the first one, via over-priced linkage cables. That level of ease makes the cable price a little more palatable.As a side note, you should plan your configuration as I did. AC goes into the light on the right end of my cabinet, and AC will eventually flow through linkage cables to new fixtures on the left. 4Four Stars Relatively easy to do a hard-wire install. Purchase of a separate junction box was not necessary. Brightness is perfect. 4Extremely awkward installation spoils an otherwise satisfactory light PRO:The units appear to be of good construction.Getting to the wiring is easy enough, sliding a couple of levers on the sides.Lighting is adequately bright and appears to be in the stated 4000K rangeCON:The body is very tightly packed making installation very awkward and difficultUnable to flush mount to back wall using supplied strain reliefNEXT TIME: I would choose a larger bodied light fixture.I bought 3 lights, 1 x 22" Kobi Electric K8M3 650 and 2 x Kobi Electric K8M9 750 4000L LED lighting fixtures. I have 14 g US standard wiring coming from the wall under the cabinets. Even with that fairly small gauge wiring, it was extremely difficult to get the wires into and correctly positioned in the case. I originally planned to do a back wall flush mount but elected to mount the lights about an inch from the wall.On the inside of the unit, I needed to move the "120/12V converter" (a 3" long plastic wrapped bloc that is double side taped in the center of the light) off to one side to have any chance of closing each of the units. I needed to re-position the wiring multiple times and there is still a bulge in the middle of one unit where the "converter" sits. They work and look OK, but I would never do it again ever. 2Good product with frustrating flaws I bought 4 of these Kobi fixtures; two 28" and two 14" for mounting under kitchen cabinets. Overall, they're well designed and have some nice features.The LED portion of the fixture is sealed, but the wiring portion is hinged along the length of the light, and easily accessed by sliding two release tabs instead of fiddling around with screws. Nice.The fixtures can be wired several ways; plugged into an outlet using the supplied cord, hardwired internally, or hardwired through a special junction box (not included). I hardwired mine using the old existing cables coming from wall switches. The wires push in to internal pigtail type connectors; one each for hot, neutral, and ground.Another nice feature is that multiple fixtures can be "daisy-chained" using the supplied end-to-end connector and butting fixtures together. There is an "input" and "output" port on each fixture. Once you wire the first fixture, you can connect its output to the input of the next fixture. This obviously requires you taking a bit of care in mounting the fixtures so that they're both in exact alignment, and butted close enough together so that the end-to-end connector makes electrical continuity.Convenient knockouts are provided along with an 3/8" die-cast metal gland that mounts into one of the cutouts to provide strain relief for the wires coming in to the fixture. However, the nut for this gland cannot be spun within the fixture because of the tight clearances. You'll have to fiddle around and spin the gland outside the fixture to get it "tight enough" and in the correct position to access the screws to tighten the strain relief (see photo).As other reviewers have noted, clearance inside the fixtures is *extremely* tight and you'll struggle to get standard 14g solid household wires into the fixtures and connected. Also, on the 14" fixtures, the neutral wire pigtail is very short and on the opposite end of the fixture from the ground and load wires. This makes wiring even more difficult in the crowded fixture. I used a short length of stranded wire from the pigtail connector and then a wire nut to complete the connection inside the fixture (see photo).The manufacturer also apparently struggles with clearances when assembling the fixture. The soldered neutral wire to the switch was broken off on **BOTH** of my 14" fixtures (the 28" fixtures were okay). Instead of trying to re-solder, I bypassed the switch on the 14" fixtures since I hardwired from the wall switch.In operation, the Kobi LEDs provide a nice, bright light. I ordered the 4000K color temperature fixtures. They provide what I would describe as a nice, natural white color, Not too warm, and no blue cast either.Aside from the aforementioned frustrating flaws that made installation a pain, the fixtures are of decent quality and I expect to get long use from them. 4Great and easy to install Highly recommended. I purchased this as a replacement for a 120V power unit for which the transformer failed. This fixture cost less than the replacement for the transformer, and I get LED instead of incandescent.Pros- All parts included for hard wiring or power cord- Very easy to install - you have 3 options: 1) Connection via the supplied power cord 2) Hardwired through a junction box (not supplied) 3) Hardwired directly to the fixtureI used option 3 - there are 3 connectors inside the unit, so you just have to insert the 120V wires into these connectors. There was enough room inside the fixture to tuck the 120V wire- Color is ok (a bit on the cool side for a 3000K)- Brightness is great for under cabinet lighting- You can connect several of these by using a single 120V wire - you can either connect the additional fixtures directly to one another via a connector (included), or you can buy a cable in case you want the various fixtures to at a distance of one another. These additional fixtures can be connected on either (or both) side(s) of the first unit- Price is great compared with hardware storesCons- I am not sure whether the LED light can be replaced once it fails 5Love em! Awesome but Kobi needs a few design changes. I replaced 24" florescent light fixtures with these 28" LED fixtures. I went with the 4000 color and they are a little whiter than my cool white florescent bulbs and are brighter! Absolutely love them. Now for the things I would like to see Kobi change.1) They could be a little deeper. One of my florescent fixtures had 2 sets of wires. The 2nd set went to power the fixture on the other side of my cooktop. It was difficult to get all that wire back in.2) I used the teardrop cutouts to screw the fixture under my cabinets. The on/off switch is in the way of one of them. The switch should have been placed a couple inches to the left.3) The teardrop cutouts need a slit on BOTH sides of the hole so you can slide the fixture in either direction.I used the screws that held my florescent fixtures in place. I would hold the new fixture in place and my wife would use a felt pen to mark one of the tear drop cutouts. Then I drilled a hole and put a screw in far enough that I could insert and slide the fixture in place. This would hold the fixture in place while I drilled the other hole for the second screw. 5High Quality, Very Pleased I bought three of these--one for a pantry light, replacing an old florescent work light, and replacing two undercabinet florescents of similar size. Packaging was excellent--easy to get into, protected the lights well, and obvious finding all the accessories and instruction sheet (which was well-done). Since they came with power cords, I did plug each one in before mounting just to ensure they all worked (they did). From the access door to switch and internal wiring, they are all nicely designed and put together. If hard-wiring, there are insert connectors ready to go, which worked very well. It can be a little tight if you have lots of wire to hide, so I was glad not to have to stuff twist lock connectors in there, as well. These have elegant little mounting screws already seated and ready to go at each end of the unit on top--they are small and designed to be self-tapping, but they are not that sharp. There thoughtfully included matching sheetrock anchors for these. However, one of the screws jammed in its threads, rendering it useless. Those mount points are why I take off a star--it's a beautiful idea and I like the little covers over them, but they need to put better screws in there and better threading. There are standard keyholes on the back of the chassis that are easy to use, so I used these instead. NOTE that if you are connecting multiple units, there is a separate connector cord that is not included that you can order (UC-C-24 from this same company)--it's a 24" cord with the proprietary connectors for these things. You cannot fabricate your own cord to any included connector, and there is only one length available as of this writing. It beats having to daisy chain your own Romex in and out of each unit, though. There is a connector with a removable access panel on one end labeled INPUT and another on the other end for OUTPUT. There is also an enclosed sort of butt connector that allows you to chain multiple lights together, so if you have freedom to space them exactly right for the connectors (which would leave about 3/4" in between each unit), you can skip buying the cord. ALSO, note that if you are bringing wiring into the back of the unit through one of its 3 punch out holes, note that the unit is exactly the internal height of the locking nut of the enclosed strain relief for your incoming Romex or similar. This does render the nut a captive nut, meaning you will have to thread the strain relief into the nut as opposed to turning the nut. Once you have it tight, then you can thread your wiring in and clamp it down, which works fine (definitely do your wiring before mounting!). These are little annoyances and overall, they are exactly what I expected and they work well. If I have any failures I will update the review, but I expect these should last for decades with any luck. 4Nice Light Once Installed I just installed five of these under kitchen cabinets. They put out very good bright light on to the counters. I like the brightness of the 5000K color light. I would give the product 5 stars, but, the installation lowers the score. These lights are not made to be hard wired with multiple lights. The lights do come with wires and quick connects so you can easily power one light and daisy chain the rest off the first light. My problem was that I was replacing a string of five existing 18 inch fluorescent lights that were hard wired from out of the wall. One problem is that the connector hole for the wire is 3/8 inch which means you can not get two sets of wires with insulation through the hole. Most of the wire insulation had been cut back any way from the original install. I used electrical tape to re-group the wires and they do fit into the connector. Another problem is that the light is all one unit. If the base was separate from the light, like the lights that I was replacing, the installation would have gone much quicker and with less cursing. I use Wago lever nuts to connect the wires because they work great and the space inside the light is very tight. So, once installed, they are very good lights. 4
