  • Every year I seem to forget how much I am wanting those landscape outdoor flood lights for holidays but primarily Seahawks...So very bright green and blue LED lights...Probably 100 watts or so...I have bought green and blue lights for our porch and driveway but they are not very bright at all. I have to imagine one of you 12's can lead me to the right place...Much thanks!

  • Thanks Rob, those look just like the ones I tried for our porch and the green was pale and barely lit up the porch with a rich green color like I was expecting for 100W. Thanks though...I'll keep looking. Currently I am intrigued by the ones on Amazon like this...

  • When you're dealing with LED lights, it isn't the watts - its the lumens. We're used to thinking of brightness in terms of watts, but in general you can easily get the same brightness from a 4 watt LED as you get from a 60 watt light bulb (I dunno, maybe 7 watts - you get the idea). I have a 6-battery (D cell) flashlight that I bought in the 90s because it was incredibly bright. I also have a 3-battery (AAA cell) LED flashlight that makes the first one its b!@ch. So, look for 'super bright' LEDs, and maybe you can find them in the desired colors as well.

    My little 3-AAA-battery flashlight puts out 1200 (rated, probably 1000 if we're honest) lumens. That's, like, ridiculous if you're using a normal light.

  • Wow man, I think I want to get some of these and a bluetooth module for one of my cheap arduino microcontrollers. Could have a geek-blast with programming light stuff!

  • That's cool! Didn't think to check out a guitar/musician site...

    Well I tested them out tonight...They look pretty good! Not quite as bright as I was hoping but not too bad. I bought two but I think I will need to buy two more at least to really get the effect I am after...(Photos make them look even brighter than they are in person...my iPhone Pro Max's camera has unbelievable night mode ability)

    Arduino and Pi, a tasty combination.
