LEDLightbar.com.au - LED Lightbar Reviews

So we review LED lightbars. If you're reading this it's probably because you're looking at buying one and wanted to check out some reviews, and you're probably wondering just what it is we review and how that's going to help you. Those are good questions, and we're happy to answer them for you.

When we review an LED lightbar we look at it from several angles. We're interested in the same things you are - how it's built, what it does and whether or not it's a good choice. That means we have to look at several points:

Build Quality.

Light bars can take a bit of a beating; they're fitted to rugged vehicles that often go in rugged places, so you need something that can stand up to a rough ride. We look at the quality of materials used for the casing and lens as well as how well it's all put together and sealed.

Mounting Options.

You want to get your lights mounted without causing any unnecessary damage to your vehicle. At the same time you want them to be easy to install and once they're in place it's important that they stay there. We examine the mounts to see how well they meet all those specifications.

Performance.

The point of a light bar is to give you some extra light when you need it, so we pay a lot of attention to how well they do that. Brightness, light coverage and reliability all get examined. We also check that they meet Australian legal requirements.

Value for Money.

Good accessories aren't the cheapest, but why pay more than you need to? If we think something's great value we'll let you know. If we think it's not worth the price we'll let you know that, too.

Of course if you have any more questions about how we review just ask our support team.

While Cosmoblaze is relatively new in the LED lights arena, I am quite confident to say that it can hold a candle to some of the most popular and well established brands of LED lighting devices today such as Rigid Industries, VisionX, Roo Systems, and Baja Designs among others.

We’re obviously a big fan of LED lightbars (look at the name of the site) but we like other types of lighting, too.

We’ve just been looking at the ARB Intensity series. These are high quality units, designed and made in Australia and ideal for anyone who’s looking to upgrade their vehicle with some decent lamps.

Nothing beats a good lightbar when you’re finding your way across rough ground in a 4wd or trying to get some work done in front of your Ute. There’s a huge range available, with LED technology quickly moving to dominate the market, and that means there’s no shortage of designs that offer something a bit different. We’ve already looked at the Reflex series of bars by VisionX, which we really liked, but among the other lights VisionX offer are the Xmitter range and we decided they were interesting too.

A good work light is an essential bit of gear for any 4wd enthusiast, and we’re always keen to check out what manufacturers are making available. The increased use of LED technology has made it a lot more interesting, too. A few years ago work lights could be pretty crude, but a lot of progress has been made. We’ve come across the Narva Senator in the past, but now Narva have a new LED model that we think looks pretty good.

Lightbars continue to be one of the most popular accessories for 4wd vehicles, just because they’re so useful. When you’re driving on trails or across rough ground at night a bit of extra illumination is essential, and a high-mounted lightbar is a great way to provide it. Of course they look good too; we all take a bit of pride in our vehicles, and having it properly fitted out gives it the right “go anywhere” look. Rigid Industries make a range of lightbars that perform as well as they look, and right now we’re going to take a look at their popular E Series.

Lightbars are a common accessory on 4wd vehicles and utes, but off road drivers aren’t the only people who sometimes need a bit of extra illumination. Lighting is also an essential feature on boats. Whether you need spotlights for spotting hazards in inshore waters or floods to light up your workspaces on deck, high performance lights are a must. Boars are a tough environment though, especially for electrical equipment, and a lot of standard products won’t survive for long in the conditions they’d face. You need specialist marine lights, like the M Series lightbars from Rigid Industries.
