Excellent quality Outdoor LED FLood Lights Reviews:
First off, I’d like to state that “I received this for free in exchange for unbiased review”. That being said, I’ve been involved with lighting (LED, CCFL, Incandescent, and Neon) for over 16 years now, so I’ve have seen and bought my fair share of expensive junk, and inexpensive gold. Much to my surprise, this light fits into the ladder category.
The package arrived around 4 days after it was shipped, and double boxed. Not much to be said about that, but it was nice to see that the seller takes the time to actually box the product box, where many people will just slap on a label to the product box, and send it on its merry way.
Inside the box the, light was well padded with foam, and while the product itself is manufacturer in Shenzhen, there is a small instruction booklet in both English and German. The only thing lacking from the booklet was the color coding for the wires, which for some, might present a problem. The wires actually follow European wire specs, so Brown is live, Blue is neutral, and Green/Yellow is ground.
After doing a 12 hour burn test, and measuring the maximum heatsink temp (to anticipate the standoff distance), I found that there was no real clearance issues I would need to worry about, as the temperature maximum is only 105.6°F (ambient of around 85°F). I decided to go to a big box retailer and pick up a 100 foot extension cord for $16, and a photocell with junction box to avoid having to use a switch.
Setup/Install time: Around 2 hours.
Setup was super easy, as there are 3 holes on the bracket in the back. Simply remove the light using the 2 side bolts, mount the bracket to wherever it’s going, and reattach the bolts.
Notes on the Installation: Use an extension cord, as you will only get around 12″ of lead wire, with 2″ at the end exposed for connections. The wire is around 18-20AWG, which is actually fine, as the light and photocell only draw 0.22 amps, so a thicker gauge is not needed. I found it easiest to solder the wires to the extension cord wires (and heat shrink of course), and run the cord to a photocell conduit box, then to a plug.
I absolutely love how much light it puts out, while only drawing minimal amounts of current.
There is easily enough light to work on a vehicle outside if needed, and will light up tree canopies quite nicely.
For some reason, there weren’t all that many bugs congregating around the light, unlike my other LED lights… not sure why.
I’m not sure how water resistant it would be in an upward facing position. I would advise mounting it in the downward facing position, so water or snow will not pool up between the glass and the seal (which seems to be the only issue).
This is definitely a great product. Combining the amount of light you get, the cost of running it (very little current used), and the cost per unit, these floodlights seem to be a really good investment.
Barring any long term issues, I’ll definitely be purchasing more of these. I plan on using them to light up our garage interior (4 total, with one on each side).
