Have you ever had a party at your house and wished you could have added a unique touch to it? Adding black light floodlights is a great option! Whether you’re decorating for Halloween, or having a rave full of body paint, you’ll want these lights outside to help make everything glow.
What did we take into consideration?
- Size and durability: Whether you have a large area to light up or just a small wall, you need size options for these lights. You’ll also want to make sure they’re made of quality materials that can withstand being outdoors for long periods of time.
- Brightness and Light Angle: Perhaps the most important aspect of the floodlights is how bright they are. Making sure you will be able to light up as much area as possible with each flood light is important. Factors such as wattage and light angles play an important role in this.
- Weatherproofing: One very specific aspect we have to consider is how waterproof they are. If you plan to leave them out all year, you’ll want them to stand up to the rain. If you’re only putting them out for one night for a party, you still may want to protect them from unexpected drink spellings or random rain clouds rolling through.
- Ease of Use: Setting them up shouldn’t take an engineering degree. We wanted options that were simple to plug in and place where you want them, while also being versatile enough to give you choices.
Onforu 30W LED Black Lights
- Aluminum and plastic construction
- 5-foot power cord
The Onforu 30W has a small rectangular body made out of aluminum and plastic. Better yet, the front panel is heavy-duty as well. This will ensure that it can hold up to the elements. Even with the possibility of getting wet, the waterproofing has you covered.
With a rating of IP66, you won’t have to worry about it getting ruined. The external temperatures shouldn’t be an issue, as it can operate at -13 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. The back of the light has specially designed heat sink fins to help keep them cool too.
The lighting capabilities make it a great entry-level choice. It produces light with 30 watts of power. This makes it the lowest brightness on the list. However, it will also use the least amount of power, making it very efficient. Each light has 50 LEDs that will last for over 50,000 hours. The wavelength produced is 385-400 nm. Even with its lower wattage, it can still throw a good amount of light. The light beam has an angle of 120 degrees and can cover an area of 20 x 20 feet.
The compact size and overall design of the Onforu 30W make it easy to use. The back of the light has a metal stand that can be adjusted. This allows you to pivot it 180 degrees. Additionally, this stand doubles as a mounting bracket. It has holes in the back that let you screw it into walls. This lets you elevate and position it to wherever you need a black light. The power cord for each light is 5 feet long and has a built-in power switch.
In our opinion, the Onforu 30W is a great place to start with outdoor black-light flood lights. They are affordable and compact. While they lack some of the brightness other options have, they will still get the job done.
