Portable Led Light

Recommended Posts

PRO-V

I bought my wife an LED light at Home Depot for some project of hers. I paid $22. I tried it out and WOW. I think I'm going to get one for fishing and camping. It will light up my whole living room. Has a USB rechargeable lithium battery and 3 power settings, and it's magnetic. This thing would work great in a portable or tent. 8.75" long. Made by Commercial Electric. Model# WHQ20-40. Check it out. And no, I don't work for them.

If you want to find this 25 Watt LED light at Home Depot use there SKU# 1002141580. Model numbers are meaningless at there stores.

Does it get hot?  Just curious if it would cause any problems if it was touching the shell of a portable. 

 

I have the Clam hub light and like it, but it's pricey for a light, and I'm always worried the cord will get ripped out of it.

It's LED, no heat coming off of them.

I almost bought the Otter light kit but this is 1/3 the price, lights up way more and would fit in your pocket or tackle bag. You could use it anywhere.

Can you post the approximate run times for the different power settings?

here is an alternative, I haven't tried it myself but it also has a fan and a hook to hang. Search for: Amacool Portable Battery Camping Fan with LED Lantern and look for it on the big river site

High - 360Lm   3.5-4.5 hrs

Medium - 180Lm   7-8 hrs

Low - 38 Lm   32-33 hrs

Also has strobe and SOS functions.

I can't imagine needing to run it on high in a portable. I just went and bought another one.

I think it said it would last 300 or 350 charge cycles.

SUBOOS Gen 2 Ultimate Rechargeable Camping Light and 5200mAh USB Powerbank - (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Z5WYESW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_D-Y6DbH7PDMX9

 

I bought this light late last winter to use in my eskimo popup, hangs from hub with big caribiner, puts off good light. It's rated at 280 lumens for 6 hours,  longer than I'll spend on the ice at night.  Best part though is the lithium batteries are CONSUMER REPLACEABLE!  You can even charge your phone with it in a pinch.  A few weeks ago I put a little led fog light strip on my helix,  spliced alligator clips and will run it off locator battery.  Should really light up the area near the hole.  Cost less than $3

Check Harbor Freight or Costco for a variety of LED battery lights...

 

The little blue ones harbor freight gives for free with coupon work well.   3.99 without coupon.  Run on AA batteries.

One could always build on than use your M18 or other drill battery to power. Fixtures are under $10, a reel of 300 50/50 bright white leds <$7 and dimmer for $3. I slip mine above one of the roof supports & put battery in net overhead storage with hat, gloves and coat.

i was wondering about a uv light, for fishing, to see float on surface.  I know you legally can't shine the light down the hole but.........

      I have not seen or heard much on folks chasing Pike.  Everyone has been concentrating on Crappies and a few Tullies

      My thought and by the way I'm a huge gill and crappies guy. Id like to see all MN lakes with a regulation that 9 or 9. 5 inch go back ASAP on crappie!!. Been seeing a lot of.lakes destroyed by fishermen taking limits of small fish. Use to fish a small.lake near Tonka few times a year and always did well on quality panfish... I went there few years later like I always did in the spring off a dock to catch spawning crappies. Lake has no access,  anyways some guys were fishing and had there kids to obviously use them for fish limits, Watched this guy pull in a 5 inch crappie, turns around lifts up a metal basket out of the water. This basket maxed out and completely full.of 5 to 7 inch crappies.  About 6 in the party kept EVERYTHING. Tried it few times that winter which I normally did back then.... no fish population at all.  Just my thoughts sorry so long lol

      Member only ...looking for some reports near Wright county area or even west and north of there.  Been fishing this small lake out near South Haven and been crushing 9.5 inch gills  and 12 inch crappies the last 2 months.  Went back last week after take a 2 week break and everything was suspended and tiny. Before everything was just off weeds deep and coming from botto....not sure what happened  but fish were loaded like a xmas on the flx28, maybe oxygen levels? First pic of the crappies took me and friend 1 hour and 20 holes... so much fun!!!!

      Jasopete, Thanks so much for the information!  One more thing I just thought of---is there any cell service in this rather remote location?  I'll be sure to check back in here and let you know how we did.

      Zucker gone & Big Bad Bruce, shoot,,,adios amigo. 😳 Our professional hockey organization is truly Wild!    Hopefully there's an interesting & entertaining playoff run. Good thing half the NHL makes the post season. Late spring hockey games that really matter totally rock. Let's Go Wild!!!

      What area were you in? Nothing specific, just general area. Like Alexandria or whatever.
    • Daniel Hayes
      On buck, are their any secrets to know about? Says it's a clear lake, any chance panfish might bite at night?
    • AlwaysFishing23
      It’s not bad! I got it this last fall at a hardware type store with a fishing department. They had the reels priced at $39.99. Plus they were running a 25% off reel sale. So I got it for something like $25. So a $90 reel I walked out for $25. It’s ok worth the $25 but not $90 imo.
