LightDims Stickers - Solving the annoying-LED problem...

An underappreciated area of design in most consumer electronics is lighting - power and status lights seem to have a mission to "be seen," but not to "be pleasant." As a result, we have piercing pinpricks of glaring light coming from wifi routers, modems, and receivers while we're trying to watch TV, use the computer, or sleep. (One notable but unsurprising exception is Apple, whose status lights are always understated and unobtrusive.) Anyway, stepping in to solve the problem are LightDims stickers, which come in a variety of sizes and tints to cover all lights and either dim them or black them out entirely. It's a band-aid, but certainly better than suffering from poor light design - and even better than my own homebrew solution of covering annoying lights with electrical tape. It's just a little that LightDims' website is itself even more annoying than the problem it solves!

What is a problem is that quite a bit of what gets sold as LED grow lights is low quality and outdated. VIPARSPECTRA 600W

I for one need the LightDims stickers to solve the problem of infuriating LEDs, especially at home and in my camp tent. I will share the knowledge of LightDims stickers with my outdoor buddies. I also found top-quality LED lights that I can use with the stickers here: http://wildernessmastery.com/outdoors/the-best-led-headlights.html
