Backyard lighting needs help

Hi, this is Janet.

I would like to install low power LED flood light, says 100W, in my backyard, so I can have the BBQ parties with my family. So the question is, what product should I choose?

I need the 100 watt led flood light fixture replacement, like this one.

It said that they have extremely high lighting efficiency (up to 170lm/W),
and the modular design for easy maintenance. The exclusive heat dissipation system can extend the life span even more!.

Ayuh,.... Hi Janet,... yer link don't work, when C&P'ed it goes to a google search page,....

I'd think a 100w led would be 120v, not low voltage, but I could be wrong,....

'n for what you want, I'd decide where the lights should be hung, 'n wire 'em to a switch that's convenient, usin' the houses 120v power,....

Re: Backyard lighting needs help

There is a difference between real power and equivalent power.

The 100w Led flood I saw on that site is real power, yielding 14,000 lumens. That is roughly a 250w metal halide bulb.
That is high power lighting in my book. It would be painful if you accidentally glanced at it.

If you want something equivelent of a 100 watt incandescent or halogen flood light, I'd be looking at 20 watts plus or minus, of LED. Might split it in two fixtures depending on the area you are trying to cover.
