Hardkorr 1.2m Tri-Colour Ezy-Fit LED Strip Light
Hardkorr's 1.2m Ezy-Fit FLEXIBLE & WATERPROOF LED Strip is an excellent choice when you want to quickly set up a light at your campsite. With carabiner ends, Velcro® straps, inbuilt sail track mount, bug-reducing orange light technology, and an IP68 waterproof rating, it is incredibly versatile and can be mounted anywhere. It produces a whopping 1,100 lumens of light (white setting).
Hardkorr’s Ezy-fit LED strip is super simple to use. It is ideally suited to be used in tents, awnings, gazebos, or anywhere you want to set up a light quickly.
Velcro® strips (sewn into the canvas) and quick-connect carabiner end clips are included in the design to make mounting the light easily. Or, if you have an awning or annex with a sail track, you can use the inbuilt sail track mount on the strip to slide straight in!
The strip comes with both orange and white LEDs and using our exclusive tri-color dimmer switch, you can create three distinct colors of light – cool white, warm white, and orange. The cool white light provides maximum brightness, whereas the new warm white setting gives off a light that is almost as bright as cool white, but with a pleasant soothing warmth. It’s perfect for setting a calm, happy mood at your campsite, particularly later at night. Finally, switching to the orange light naturally reduces the presence of bugs by up to 90%, and is particularly useful around food preparation and eating areas.
The dimmer switch comes with our removable pole clips so you can attach it to a tent or awning pole, giving you one less thing to worry about misplacing out in the bush.
- One strip contains both orange and white LEDs
- Easy to mount: Carabiner end clips, Velcro® attachment straps, and handy inbuilt sail track mount
- IP68 waterproof rating means the lights are completely watertight (in fact they will run underwater)
- Waterproof locking DC connectors on all cables
- Heavy-duty, double insulated cables to prevent voltage drop, which results in brighter light
- Low power consumption – can be left on all night without affecting your battery
How does orange light reduce bug presence?
Some bugs, like mosquitos and moths, can’t help but move their body towards any light source they can see. This phenomenon is called positive phototaxis. Entomologists still don’t have a complete understanding of why this phenomenon exists, but it is clearly observable in nature.
Of course, bugs will only be attracted to light they can see, and there is a useful difference between the spectra of light that are visible to humans compared to bugs. Humans can generally see the light that has a wavelength between 380nm (blue) and 740nm (red). Most bugs, conversely, can see light with a wavelength between 300nm and 600nm.
The wavelength of our orange LEDs is 610nm, putting them outside of the spectrum visible to must bugs, but still well inside the boundaries of human vision. As a result, most bugs will not congregate around our orange light because they simply don’t know it is there.
