Admorelights for top or side panniers

Just wondering if any one has used this product as I'm interested in the purchase of the top case lights for my Suzuki 48L top case.
Wondering if they are bright in sunlight ?
Bought some LED strip lighting from Wallmart and hooked them up behind my top case lens and they are really only visible at dusk or later.
I have noticed that the lenses in the Suzuki top case are rather opaque than clear
Any input would be helpful
Thanks

I don?t know about your Suzi lens, but here they are on my Givi top box with clear lens and blue reflective tape.
I have thought about the side case lights. But haven?t pulled the trigger yet.

Also, I think the strips are adhesive, and flexible if you thought about mounting outside of the lens.

Whatever you choose to ride, enjoy it and be open to new experiences.

Expensive but I've put them in my top cases and it makes a HUGE difference. Money well spent IMO.

I put the Admore light kit in my Shad top case. It worked great and really increased my visibility from the rear. I had a number of people comment to that effect.
Yes, it's expensive but if you are after more visibility, it does the trick.

I added the Admore SMT lightbar above the license plate, either one really increases your visibility from the rear.

Thanks for your feedback, emailed the Co. appears there is a direct plug in & go plug for an extra $25 may make it a little less complicated, would you happen to know where it may be located on the bike.
I looked at pics posted here in another section regarding a heated grip plug located in the upper left and one located near the bottom of the rad but both of these seem to far away from the rear of the bike.

Is there a direct plug and play located under the seat somewhere ?

Thanks again for all your input

You can tap into the rear lights on the left side rear (white plug in pic), need to remove the rear fender. Eastern Beaver make a Brake/Tail/Signal Adapter to tap into it. I don't know if Admore does too.
