What do you think?

I wonder if having some cube lights would be cool? We go camping a lot, but I probably dont need them...

Anyone know of some well made cube lights? I dont want cheap ones...

I would highly recommend you check out these ones: https://ionlights.us/

I have the 4-LED pods that are on their cover page but they're now discontinued.

You should get the Micro Flood Light since the beam pattern is very wide, and it would be perfect to light up a campsite.

I actually compared one of the cheap pods from Amazon to one of the micro floods from ION and you can see that the nicer one has a weatherproof connector. https://imgur.com/a/M46n8GE

Here's the video I recorded:

Huh...... I definately like the price. So you are recommending the Micro Flood Light? Micro Flood Light - ION Lights

Have you been through a season with them, meaning cold, hot, dry, wet? I guess what I am asking is if they have proven to handle shock/ vibration well and if they have proven to be water tight.

Thanks again. I am going to oreder the beackets today, and pending your response, order these.

Yes, the Micro Flood Light, because I think the spot version will have a very narrow beam and the scene light might be too wide. I really think it's a good beam pattern for camping.

I haven't installed the flood lights yet at the front but I do have the same light in scene beam pattern on the rear. I'm located in South Texas and I've had them through 100-degree weather in dry conditions, and we've had rain too. If you consider 40-degree weather cold then yes it has been through that. I haven't seen them fog up. I've also been through dirt roads at high speeds. See attached pictures.

Also, be sure to pick out a wiring harness. Makes things much easier.

Good deal. I am going to order the brackets and lights tomorrow. Thanks. I'll throw some pictures up when done. Depending on delivery time, probably 2 weeks. Being as I am in southern AZ, if they work in south Texas, they'll probably work here too.

Thanks again.
