Default Cheap, Submersible 900 Lumen LED.

Ok, most people agree that HPS is the way to go for gigging, but if your boat is too small or you don't have money for a generator like me, these might help. I haven't fully tested them yet because I'm workin on the boat. But it shines bright from the dock. I am about to order 4 more and mount them on a piece of aluminum channel to float in front of the boat. Anyway, they are 12v, 10w, 900 Lumen LED lights, for 12 bucks on ebay! In the picture, I just have it hooked up to a little 9v battery in my house, but it is a lot brighter on the 12v, and supposedly submersible; though i havent tested that yet. This is fully open to criticism, but it's a cheap, efficient, and lightweight option for recreational gigging. I'm not the one selling these, just thought I would throw it out there.. Here's the link

And here's a couple pictures. I'll post more when i get in the water next weekend.

I was actually looking at these to add to my current LED rig on my boat. May order them and see what I can modify.

I have built a pile of wading lights using these lights and have been using them above and below the water all summer long. They are plenty bright using just one for wading. I have not had one problem. I use a small 12v 9ah battery and power one all night long. They will do what you are wanting on the cheap.

Before you buy more of those take a look at these.
I purchased one of these water proof, 27 watt, LED, lights to build a wading light. It's 2150 lumens and costs $39 with free shipping. It's built out of a heavy duty cast aluminum frame and a sealed glass lens.

I haven't built the pole yet but this sucker is bright as hell and throws a wide flood beam. You can see the size of it in my hand in the last pic. It's about 50 - 60 feet to the fence.

Is that thing submersible? Says they are waterproof, but that doesn't mean they are submersible. I might have to get a couple of those for my camper and 4-wheeler.

Yes. IP67

Here's a pic of it submerged in my kitchen sink.
The battery it's hooked up to is about dead so it's not nearly as bright as it was outside hooked up to the car battery.

How long do you get between charges with these lights?

I bought 4 of the lights on the origional post and am in the process of making pvc frames to mount in the flush-mount rod holders on my kayak. No mods to the Kayak itself. I am hopeful that it will work well.
