Philips today expanded its Hue lighting lineup with the launch of the Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus, which adds new white lighting options to the colorful mood lighting introduced with the original Philips Hue Lightstrip.

Like the first LightStrip, the new Lightstrip Plus is a two-meter LED-studded adhesive-backed strip that can be used behind televisions, under desks, and more, as mood lighting within the home. The new Lightstrip Plus is an enhanced version of the Lightstrip, adding brighter, tunable white light in addition to the 16 million color options of the original.

As an indirect source of light, Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus can be placed anywhere in the home to complement and enrich existing Philips Hue lights, delivering a uniformed color. Self-adhesive and easy to install, place along the bottom of a hallway choosing a beautiful shade of white light to create a sense of spaciousness; run along coving high up the walls of a room to wash the entire space with light instantly transforming its look and feel; or line along shelves and cabinets to add a stylish touch of ambience to match a mood or moment.

The Lightstrip Plus measures in at 1,600 lumens, and the new version allows multiple strips to be chained together to reach a length of up to 10 meters. As with the first version, the Lightstrip Plus can be cut and bent as needed to fit into any space, and it can be controlled alongside other Hue lights with the Hue app.

The Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus will be available for purchase in North America starting in October. It is priced at $89.95 for a two meter strip, with one meter extension strips available for $29.95.

The strip is awful. It has a massive power brick and does not stick well.

Thanks. I was afraid of that. I have been looking for something like this to illuminate some shelving and replace the halogens the previous homeowner had installed. But I don't want to deal with a massive power brick in this location. I appreciate the heads-up.
Registered just to say this: mattopotamus ('https://forums.macrumors.com/members/mattopotamus.706130/') is grossly exaggerating the size of the power brick. It's basically the size (and shape) of the og Apple remote: I've had no issues.

No bananas, so an iPod for scale.

It is really awful. It actually has the typical 2 prong power supply and also a power brick (think xbox). It hung down and didn't stay stuck because of the power brick.

exactly, it is too close to the actual strip. It needs to be right next to the power plug.
