Anyone ever try 2 or more of these? I just bought one on ebay to see how bright it is-

6 AA Batts = 9 volts..    I wonder if it would work on the 12 volt batts that come with flashers, or would 12 volts be to much....

The hour ratings on the batteries aren't too bad (25 HOURS) I may just use the AA battery set-up. AAs arent too spendy, not like Ds

jbird68.. I ordered some of the lights ealier this year from www.pcboard.ca (the www.pcboard.ca/kits/LEDLite/) and have been very happy with the results. Although they are wired for 13.8v, I was running them at 12v (running with 10 Ni-MH 4200mAh sub-C cells) and they still produce tons of light and I can easily get 24 hours of constant running out of them before needing to charge the cells again.

When I purchased mine, I was able to get them without the tubes and saved a few dollars - contact them and see what they can do for you - they were very accomdating for me. I see they have round model now with 18-LEDs that I am thinking about getting next.

Got this for my portables at Menards.The light heads turns 360 and tilt.No wires no extra weight of battery packs.The best lights Ive ever seen in a portable by far.

BTW the light bar clips on to the shack poles useing these slick boom stick holders I found at home depot.Works with square tubeing too.

Like Kybar, I purchased the First Ice 4ft rope LED lights from Gander last season and a battery w/charger($20) similar to the vexilar battery and was more than happy with how much light they put out in the shack (2-3man). I even had my hat clip on LED lights for when I was out of the shack doin some jumpin around from hole to hole but found myself lots of times taking the rope lights and battery with me. That battery will last for days if left on with those lights. I was happy with the purchase. There are some pretty sweet setups out there- this just happened to be what I used last year and wanted to post that I was happy using this setup then.
Bring on the ice!!!

It seems to take a lot of LED's to get sufficient lighting!

I keep hearing the clam LED rope lights were disapointing, not so w the "First Ice" 4 footer at Gander, they are bright. I do use my vex battery to to run the lights as well, but when I am in my shack I purchased an extra battery to run them off of.

Yeah, I keep hearing great things about the "first ice" ropes- I am definitely gonna have to try them out.

What is the power source for the lights? Can you turn each light on or off individually? Could you hook it up to an external battery? I like the size and the ability to aim each light seperately. We have a Menards close by, I'll have to see if they have these in stock.

Well I got the first of probably 4 lights total I am gonna get off ebay. I bought one set first to make sure they were bright enough before I got any more, and I am pleased to say, I will probably go ahead and order the 3 more- heres some pics, they are pretty bright, but I figure 4 banks total and it'll be like daylight in the shanty:

Turned off:


In my dark shanty (in basement):


And what the shanty looks like lit up:

Those look pretty bright!  You have a brand name for those?
