Default LED Strips in Attic?...

Now that these have been out for a while, anyone ever installed in an unconditioned attic space? Looking to install some 4' singles, enclosed. Think a 120+ degrees in the summer would shorten the life? Melt the strip that the LED circuitry?

The phillips fluxstreams I just installed the other day had a 185 degree F max temp rating for wire near the ballast so I would assume that the board just as close to the ballast would be rated for similar temps. most circuit boards these days don't rely on solder as much as the older ones did. Probably a good question for your rep though. Their warranty is only good if the temperature does not exceed 77 degrees ambient though so I don't really know if they would last

Yep...probably a rep question, no doubt it is the warranty I would be concerned about.
