Thank you, cableless is good choice, but maybe not thin and long style, please update us.Smart! You addressed one of the things I really dislike so far (small list).
There's absolutely NO light back there. And the one they put in is in a terrible location. For as well thought out as a lot of other things are it's really disappointing they failed so miserably with the cargo lighting.
I had thought about some battery LED lights that I could heavy velcro to the top so I didn't have wires etc running around, but not sure how well that will work long term.
I setup USB LED Cargo Light as pictures. One touch on/off, long touch to switch lighter or darker. Any suggestion ?
OK, I will try hide the cable in this weekend:tango_face_wink:Don't know if you care about the wires, but they could easily be tucked behind those side trim panels under the lift gate gaskets up and over the top and then come out of the trim at the top to connect to the light fixture. That would minimize the exposed wires to be just a little bit at the USB port and a little bit that goes into the light fixture.
Perfect - this answers my questions of how it connects and how the board is mounted - thanks for the image and the detail!The install is fairly straight forward. The SMD12 comes with an assortment of 4-5 adapters that plug into various standard bulb bases. You pick the one you need and plug it in. Dbl-Backed Adhesive is provided on the back of the board to help hold the board in place.

retrofit or came from factory? It looks similar to the one I retrofitted, from 2019+ Forester Sport.Subaru light may be not very bright but it looks OEM and its not getting blocked by the 1st bag i put in the car ...
I used this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MLR6PWC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I had to file two of the corners just a teeny bit to fit into the housing. The adapters are a bit dodgy but once I got it in, I haven't had any problems. Where did you get...www.ascentforums.com
