Let me put it this way: they sell a lot more fridge magnets than fridge stickers.
I am not too knowledgeable regarding lighting parts but if there are other, much cheaper versions that use adhesive tape, and I wanted magnet versions, I would just buy some small 2x5mm Neo-Magnets from Amazon and stick them to the strip using the adhesive or even a dab of superglue.
How many Post-It Notes do you have on your fridge? 'Cos I've got precisely zero on mine. Google shows 238,000 results for '"post-it notes" fridge', while '"fridge magnets"' gets 1,140,000 results. (Incidentally, searching for '"post-it notes"' without the 'fridge' addendum gets you 1,280,000 - so only 140,000 more than '"fridge magnets'" despite being for all references to Post-It Notes ever, not just when they're used on fridges.)
Fair enough I guess
Although I don't know anyone with fridge magnets actually on the fridge, mostly because they are fitted under counter jobs that have wooden door covers.
Loads of postit notes though
Try changing the search wording a quick search using "post-it notes fridge" got About 1,870,000 results (0.51 seconds)
and "fridge magnets" About 1,340,000 results (0.58 seconds)
Postit is a brand name rather than the generic "fridge magnet" which might have skewed search results, but fair enough, point conceded.
Magnetic fixings still seems like a crap selling point for LED's

Interestingly, many of those searches are redundant: Google ignores plurals and punctuation as standard, unless you're doing a "verbatim" search via Search Options. As far as Google is concerned, post-it notes = post-it note = post it notes = post it note.
They're not redundant if you are using a verbatim search to attempt to extract some sort of relevant statistical data about usage from a search engine. It's actually quite fun trying to use google-fu to engineer a fair-ish comparison (ymmv).
Google seems to ignore/accept "-" results even in verbatum searches though, which makes me disproportionately annoyed
You may be overestimating how much effort I want to put into a comment on a web forum, there...
Not really. I don't really care how much effort you put in to your fridge magnet zealotry
It just triggered a latent bit of my brain that finds the numbers at the top of search results and their relevance/use quite interesting
THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE GOD, AND HIS NAME IS FRIDGEMAGNET.
(Which has just reminded me of a running joke about "name your child the first thing you see" taken into a suburban environment in a Robert Rankin novel. Fridgemagnet Gould, I think the character was called. I forget the book.)
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nope.
His name is
The holy trinity: The Jaffa cake, Bourbon & Jammie Dodger
You could of course also glue in a bit of steel, or glue some of your own magnets, that way you can use it in plastic/aluminium but have the option to easily remove or change the lighting.
