Recommended 12-Volt Powered Light and Cord for Trailer During Loading and Unloading


Looking to power a light for loading and unloading. Connecting to 12-volt outlet in the back end of my Cayenne.

I can help you pick out a work light for loading/unloading and help you wire it up to use in a 12-volt outlet.

First, I would instead recommend the # TLL48FB Opti-Brite LED Work Light from Optronics instead of the light # TLL50FB you were looking at. This light is much brighter and has a better spread with 1,200 raw lumens of light compared to the 324 raw lumens of light produced by the # TLL50FB. I have linked two images of us testing the two lights at night outside, and you will be able to see the difference in the two lights. They are very comparable in price so I think you will be very pleased with my recommendation.

Next to wire this light up to work in your 12-volt socket you will need the Rear View Safety Cigarette Lighter Adapter
Item # RVS-505. This will transform the bare wire setup to the 12-volt plug, you may need to use heat shrink butt connectors like # DW05743-5 and # DW02923-1 to extend the wire to reach the socket.

I have linked all the parts mentioned above to this page for your convenience.
