    Yeah, you're probably right. I used that example because I was a smoker...28 years ago. Use a candle then. Light the candle, blow it out when close to the offending leak and watch the smoke. A lighted incense stick works too.

    To check for heat leaks, use a cigarette. Don't inhale. Lot cheaper than using this device. I like the idea of this unit for my model train layout, smoke from a "campfire" for example.

    Inexpensive garage lights from LED strips

    would it pass building codes? Not likely since the technology is new and no one has rules for using such strips. If you need a building permit to make a building, inspectors would likely reject this addition. The power supply, wiring, exposed LED strip components would all be suspect. Is it more a fire hazard than UL approved fluorescent lighting? I myself don't have problems with it since I use LED strip lighting for my model train layout. Oh..12 volt supply by the way.
