B HK Lights cracked ??

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any problems with these lights cracking? I ordered 3 sets for myself with no problems, Then I ordered 3 for a buddy and yesterday he went to install and 1 of the strips cracked in a bunch of spots, right through the housing and circuit board, his other 2 sets are fine,they were in the garage but it has not been that cold yet, e-mailed company but have not heard back yet. Any ideas what happened??

actually i just recieved my order and one of the lights cracked.... but i think i am attributing this to the cold weather. i warmed them up and they worked just fine. So i dont know maybe just a bad batch but they are deffinatly still the brightest lights around.

I do not like these lights. They are made way too cheap for the price you pay and no return. I have heard customer service is nonexistent and you are basically SOL if this happens when your lights come in the mail. I have heard it happens quite a lot also wink. Every year their is a post going about it.

I would just steer away from these cheap lights and buy better quality style L.E.D. lights.

I do not think they are the best of anything crazy. If they are, I would hate to see the worst of grin

if you take care of them they work out just great... but your right customer service is quite slow but i have yet to see anything put off as much light as them and be as small ad well as pull as little energy from the battery as they do.

Last year I purchased 3 sets and two didn't work or only part of the string worked. I had no luck trying to return them.

No more for me.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
