|Q:||any idea what kind of battery everyone is using to power the 20 watt for flounder gigging lights? Trying to find the smallest to carry in a backpack and still get a few hours out of the light. - by Stacy (Effingham, SC)|
|A:||Something like these:

|Q:||What are the beam angles of the wide and narrow lenses? - by Don (United States)|
|A:||180 degrees for the wide angle flood
60 degrees for the spotlight
|Q:||Hello. Does the 20 Watt RGB for external controller come with a plug, or is it bare wires? Assuming it is common anode (positive), is it compattible with the Multifunctional (DMX) controller? - by Villem (Toronto, Canada)|
|A:||It comes with bare wires and is compatible with any common positive controller.|
|Q:||Where would silicone be added to make this as weatherproof as possible? I would like to use one of these as a floodlight hooked up to a motion sensor for my driveway|
|A:||The 20 watt is completely waterproof. For the 10 watt, you can add silicone around the lens and waterproof the back where the wiring enters the housing.|
|Q:||We are building flounder rigs with the 20W (IP68 waterproof) and will be using two and three lights per rigs. We would like to use a intergraded battery pack in the handles. What rechargeable battery sizes will best suit or needs for up to 8 hours of use? - by Randy|
|A:||From the "Technical Info" tab, you can see the 20W Green uses 2,800 mA.
Thus, 2,800 x 3 lights = 8,400 mA
And 8,400 x 8 hours = 67,200 mA
So you'll need a 12V battery pack that has at the very least 67,200 mAh (milli-amp hours), or 67.2 Ah (amp hours)
I doubt you'll be able to find a battery with this much capacity that'll fit in the handles (unless you make very large handles!).
It seems your best bet, unless you can live with less run time (say an hour or so), is to put the large battery in a backpack.
From some quick Googling, we've found that a battery with around 70 Ah weighs around 50 pounds and costs around $130.
|Q:||If I were to order six of these... Which of your products would i need to power them. Three are going in two different trees on different sides of my yard. So 3 a tree. What do I need to power them? - by Kevin (Glenview Illinois )|
|A:||The 10W draws 800 mA, and the 20W draws 2400-2800 mA.
So you could use either of these AC Adapters:
Waterproof AC Adapter
You might also find this useful (not necessary though):
1-to-4 Y Adapter Cable - 2.1mm barrel plug for AC Adapter
|Q:||Are they dimmable?|
|A:||Yes. Here's a quick video which shows it being dimmed using our Inline LED Controller. You could use other dimmers too.
|Q:||Could i wire 3 lights together. Would i have to wire in series or all + together and all -together so i can use one controller. what type of 12v led driver would you recommend for three 12v 10w lights. - by Michael|
|A:||Yes, of course! You're welcome to wire 3 lights together. Wire them in parallel, not in series. Simply use a 3.25 or 5 amp AC Adapter.|
|Q:||How can I incorporate a switch with the Eclipse?|
|A:||You can splice into the wiring and add a switch. Ignore the yellow wire, just hook up the blue and brown wires.|
|Q:||Does the million color have memory? If I r/r power, will it go back to the last setting? Can I dim a selected solid color? What is the ~range of the remote? Is it possible to approximate a soft white w/million color? I want to mount 3 at the top of a 15' indoor waterfall, and would like to control color from the ground - by Christopher (Manalapan, NJ)|
|A:||Does the million color have memory? Yes
If I r/r power, will it go back to the last setting? Yes
Can I dim a selected solid color? Yes
What is the ~range of the remote? Just like a TV remote, about 10 - 15 feet
Is it possible to approximate a soft white w/million color? No
I want to mount 3 at the top of a 15' indoor waterfall, and would like to control color from the ground. Sounds good! You could also try using an infrared repeater / eye.
|Q:||How much does this unit weigh? - by Rob (Waipahu, HI)|
|A:||10W: 11.6 oz (330g)
20W: 1.28 lbs (585g)
50W: 2.2 lbs (1000g)
|Q:||can it work with 120 v power?|
|A:||Input : 12V DC
So just plug it into one of these AC Adapters.
|Q:||Since the multicolor does come with a remote, can i use the same remote if i buy more than one light? If i do have to buy more than one remote will they be indentified which remote goes to what light?|
|A:||You may use the same remote. All of the remotes that come with the multicolor are identical and interchangeable.|
|Q:||So by the picture above it does come with a remote?|
|A:||The RGB/Million color version comes with a remote so you can control the colors.
The single color versions do not come with a remote.
|Q:||Where is the IR sensor on million color RGB fixture on 10W LED housing. - by Naeem (Richmond, Virginia)|
|A:||If you take the front lense off, you can see it here:
|Q:||Is the million color light common positive or common negative?|
The million color / RGB version simply has two wires, a power and ground.
It has a built in controller.
|Q:||On the lux/lumens scale, how much does this produce?|
|A:||Please check out the "Tech Info" tab.|
|Q:||Will this work good as a fog light, or will it just blind other drivers? - by Michael|
|A:||We haven't tested it as a fog light, but give it a shot and see how it works.|
