Review of Optronics Trailer Lights ILL71CBAWN


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number: ILL71CBAWN. This is the Optronics Opti-Bright LED Interior Strip Light with the awning. Low profile, low heat, white light. Is going to be great as an RV porch light for a covered porched area. The awning is going to direct the light downward at a 45 degree angle. So, you can see here on the back side it's a flat mount design and then that light would be distributed at a 45 degree angle coming out of the housing portion here.

Now this is going to be the light strip. It's going to have the nice chrome frame that's going to add a lot of style. That is a polished chrome design. This is a sealed, single piece housing, so it's going to be waterproof. It's going to feature the clear poly-carbonate lens; it's going to allow the bright light to be distributed evenly when it comes through the light output. Now this is the LED system.

It's going to feature the long lasting LEDs, those are going to be a great replacement for incandescent lights. LEDs are going to feature a multiple diode design. This on in particular is going to have 18 diodes. You don't have to worry about replacing any bulbs, you don't have to worry about brittle filaments, and they're going to be more efficient. Now, the flat base mounts on a flat surface.

It's got the nice gasket back here. It's got a lot of cushion to it so it's going to allow for a nice, tight seal during the installation. It's a two wire design, you're going to have your black and white wire. Black wire is for power, white wire's for ground. Taking a look at the over length, measuring from edge to edge, this is going to give us a measurement of 18 inches long. If we take a measurement of the width, it's going to give us a width of 2 and 1/8 of an inch and then the thickness is going to measure 1 and 1/16 of an inch.

The interior strip light length is going to measure 16 inches. Light output is at 342 lumens. This is designed to work for 12 volt systems and the power draw is 0.3 amps at 12.8 volts. Now you're going to mounting locations. One right here and one right here. If we take a measurement, the distance that we have between those two mounting slots, center on center, that's going to give us a measurement of 11 and 1/8 of an inch. The whole diameter is going to measure 3/16 of an inch. And Optronics is going to put a lifetime warranty on the LEDs. Now, an important note to mention is that this light is not recommended for use in fully exposed, outdoor locations. We're going to go and hook it up to our external power source that way you can see what it looks like with power running to it. We'll also be able to turn off our overhead lights that way you can see it in a low-light setting. So you can see here, this allows a lot of light to come through. It's a nice, clear lens with a bright white light. I'll hold it as if it's mounted and you can see how that's going to distribute the light at a 45 degree angle. Sends out a nice consistent beam there and you're going to again have 18 diodes, so plenty of LEDs to send out that signal that you're looking for. That's going to do it for our review of part number: ILL71CBAWN. This is the Optronics Opti-Bright LED Interior Strip Light. .
