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.........

      Yeah, but man I bet the walleyes were on fire!   That weekend was crazy. First time I can recall Metro Transit pulling buses off the road. We took videos of the kids sledding down our ice covered driveway and down to the neighbors driveway.
    • nofishfisherman
      Absolutely, we were pretty bummed out the day before the trip when we officially pulled the plug but the morning we planned to leave we woke up to the roads in the twin cities covered in a solid layer of ice so just getting out of town would have been hard.  Then we saw the amount of snow falling up north and it was obvious we made the right call.  It simply wouldn't have been safe to go.

      I also had a neighbor who had the same issue with a jiffy auger. It was an older model so he didnt bother to have it repaired. He eventually replaced it with a eskimo propane auger.

      If I fillet using option 2, I usually lose some belly meat. Option 1 I get all the belly meat but I take the ribs out a different way than most. Rick at Highbanks Resort showed me. I'll have to post a video because it's too difficult to explain. Now I'll have to go fishing!!

      Thought I'd post pictures of what I did. I used 1" PVC pipe and designed it so the bottom of the portable is about 7" above the bottom of the skis. I would guess the sled doesn't weigh more than 15 pounds and that might even be exaggerated a little.
    • eyeguy 54
      An example of some crappies smoked yesterday. Call me crazy but I will just eat another fish instead of the thin slice of meat 😁
    • eyeguy 54
      Few years ago I started cutting the rib totally off meat and all on panfish. Gets the tiny bone out also that I don’t like to chew up. Such a small amount of meat is wasted and mostly breading any way. 
    • leech~~
      Yeah, never implied they weren't, or suggested someone should be ashamed. I did offer a solution, I thought? 🤔
    • eyeguy 54
      Lol. 80 seconds and full of bones. I would have two done and boneless 🐟🐟🐟

      Went out to Spring Lake on Wednesday evening. Lots of trucks out on upper prior and spring. Saw a 3/4 ton coming off prior. Probably 14” of ice on spring, left my truck in the parking lot and traveled by car from the winter access. We were targeting walleyes but no cigar. Picked up some perch along the way.
