LED lighting for my portable

10 posts in this topic

I was looking at best hon- kon- led ropes has anyone compared the white leds to the warm white leds? The information on there web site says they put out the same amount of light. Is there a better alternative?

I haven't compare the warm white to the white, but I am guessing the white is the way to go.

I like warm white because it projects the lighting in a bit more natural and "warm" color. White is nice and BRIGHT and I'm not sure how they are side by side (I think Harvey Lee has both as he's mentioned before). For someone like myself that is confined to an office full of fluorescents and unnatural lighting. I can't stand the whiteness of that color of light when I'm fishing. I have a 48cm strip in my Clam 460 and it is plenty bright. Good luck

I thought I had heard that the warm white wasn't as bright. I have two 48 cm strips of the regular white and they are nice, though they definitely have a touch of blue tint to them. Not bad - still mostly white, but I could see the warm white being much nicer if they had the same brightness.

I'm not sure? I know mine are bright to the point that I'm installing a dimmer switch because it's too bright at night. Buyer beware, people have had bad luck with packages showing up with bulbs not functioning and the return policy is non existent. If you do buy them reinforce the stock cable with a heavier duty cable that can withstand the cold. Good luck.

Has anyone ever tried the rope lights from Cabela's?? Seen them last night. 3 foot long for $34.99.

Guess I'm asking, if they are bright or not.

The GM ones are about as bright as Christmas lights...I use mine for a hole light.

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
