Review of Optronics Trailer Lights STL190AB


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number STL190AB. This is the Optronics GLOLight LED trailer light. The innovative tail light is going to serve as your parking light and turn signal light. It's going to have this nice inner band of amber LEDs. This is going to function as your parking light. Then you have the outer band here that's going to contain 16 diodes going all the way around. That's going to illuminate for your turn signals. This unit is amber LEDs and it's also going to have the amber lens over the amber LEDs.

The inner section right here, this is going to be a reflector lens, that's going to eliminate the need for a separate reflector so it's great that that's built in. This is the sharpest mount design so it's going to protect the LEDs from moisture, shock, and vibration. This diodes are going to be mounted directly onto the circuit board, and the LED system, that's going to offer better heat distribution, especially with those diodes on the circuit board. It's going to allow for an overall thinner construction and it's going to help withstand bumps and shaking. Now the lens unit is going to be made from a poly-carbonate construction, as well as the housing. They're both going to be sonically sealed, so that means that they're going to be waterproof. You can see here on the back side, it's got nice sealant around the plugs, it's got nice sealant that goes around this portion right here, and so I know it's probably pretty hard to see on this screen but it's got a nice clear coat that covers up everything, seals everything, for a nice watertight seal. While we're here on the back we'll go ahead and point out that is has the 3 wires you're going to have your white wire for ground, your black wire for your power supply, this is going to run your parking light function, and then your red wire for your turn signal.

So 3 wired design. This is Department of Transportation compliant. It meats FMVSS and CMVSS requirements for automotive lighting. We're going to take a look at the overall dimensions. Measuring here at the back, which is going to help give us a little more accurate measurements. Edge to edge it's going to give us a diameter of 7in.

From the center of one mounting hold going straight across to the center of the other, that's going to measure 6 1/4in. Now the power draw for unit is rated at 12.8 volts for your turn signal, it's going to use .340 amps. For the parking light that's .135 amps. Again surface mount design. It does come with a nice foam gasket. It has all the cut outs, it's going to have your mount hole cut outs as well. Simply just remove the piece of foam that blocks that hole.

That's going to allow a nice, tight seal when you mount it. It's got the hole in the center so you can bring your wires through, just like this. And you just line up all your holes and install your mounting hardware. Optronics is going to put a lifetime warranty on the LEDs. So real quick we just want to go ahead and hook it up to our power source. That way we can show you what it looks like with power running to it. Going to turn off our overhead lights. So you can see here it sends out a nice consistent signal. LED system is a great system to have. It's a nice upgrade to incandescent lights as well. So this is going to be our parking light function. Again it's got that nice smooth inner band. And then when we apply our turn signal, you can see that outer band lights up. So it really sends out a nice strong consistent signal and again the LEDs, they're going to be much more efficient, they're going to last a lot longer, and you don't have to worry about replacing the bulbs. Obtronics is going to put a lifetime warranty on the LEDs. That's going to do it for our review of part number STL190AB. This is the Obtronics GLOlight LED trailer light. .
