We have a small low voltage solar system for our home. Our little solar system came with two DC bulbs, but they were not the best quality and they quickly burnt out. One thing that we have found hard to find at all of our local stores is low voltage DC lighting to go with our system. Where to turn? Amazon, of course, and Zitrades is a brand that we like.
Just a little while ago, I did do a review for the Zitrades Fairy Solar Lights. We loved those little sweet lights. When I was offered to review four of their low voltage DC flood lights, I really wanted to try these lights out with our low voltage system. They are really working out for us.

The wiring for the lights is blue and brownish red. In DC lighting that brownish red is hot and the other wire is neutral. It is different from AC lighting as black is hot and white is neutral. This light wired ready for your already existing low voltage outdoor lighting or solar system, or you can even wire it so that it can be hooked up to your car battery. There is not plug on the wires, you do have to connect it yourself. It is not meant to be plugged into your existing AC system. You do that and you will kill the lights as they are low voltage DC only.
The lights are low voltage LED. They will shine out in a 120 degree angle clearly lighting what you want lit at night. Being LED, the light contains no mercury, no Ultra violet rays, nor Infrared radiation. These are energy efficient lights that save 70% of energy over a traditional flood lights so they are Eco-friendly and will save you money on your electric bills. Meant to replace your old floodlights, but like I said before, they do need to be connected to a low voltage system which you can purchase at your local home improvement store or a solar system like what we purchased at Harbor Freight Tools.

We have mounted the two white 10 watt flood lights in the house. Why in the house? Because they provide us with evening light so that we can be more independent from the electric grid in a more environmentally friendly way, plus, in the event of a power outage, we have emergency lighting. We live in the desert, and the sun is always going to shine for us. The RGB flood lights are outdoors being the security lights that we need. We live quite far from main roads in the desert, and we need the security of bright lights, like these give us, to ward off miscreant off-roaders who are bent on thieving in the night.
