Optronics BUL78 Series LED Utility Light Dimensions

Sonically Sealed, Waterproof Trailer Light

The waterproof construction of this light makes it ideal for use on trailers that may be submerged, like a boat trailer. The housing and lens are sonically sealed together to create a single unit, which means that water will not get into the light and damage the diodes or circuit board.


Raw Lumens vs. Effective Lumens

Lumens are used to measure the amount of usable light that is put out by a light source. Raw lumens represent the number of lumens that the manufacturer claims the LEDs are capable of producing. It does not include the light's drive method or the amount of light lost from the lens or reflector. Effective lumens take these factors into account and represent the number of lumens that are actually produced by the complete light assembly, not just the amount of light that the diodes are capable of producing. This light has a 700 raw lumen capacity and produces 490 effective lumens.

Today we are going to take a look at Optronics Sealed 6-1/2 Inch Oval LED Trailer Utility Light part number BUL78CB. This light housing is sealed and waterproof and contains 10 super LEDs. The LEDs draw a total of .080 amps at 12.8 volts. It is a 2 wire design meaning there will be one wire for ground and another wire for power. Next we will hook the light up to a power supply so you can see how it looks. Connect the white wire to our ground and the red wire to our power. Next we will turn off the overhead lights so you can see how bright the light is. And that does it for Optronics Sealed 6-1/2 Inch Oval LED Trailer Utility Light part number BUL78CB.

I mounted the lights on the rear bumper of my travel trailer. I ran the wire into a storage compartment that had 12VDC. I connected to the power and added a rocker switch. The lights are very bright and the price was good. Can't wait to go camping and put these lights to work. I added a voice activated remote control: when backing up, I yell out the window "Hey Honey, go turn on the backup lights". Hasn't worked yet. 527201

These are great lights. I bought two of them to use as reverse lights on my boat trailer. They light up bright and allow me to see behind the trailer. I liked them so much I bought three more use as a side marker light and two for cabin lights on the boat. Shipping was nice and fast as well. Thanks etrailer. 81445


Comments

Adrian,I too just installed a set of these as reverse lights on my 5x8 utility trailer, based on your input. Thanks, they work great.I ordered these with grommets no need with the flange and the brackets to mount them to. I had to do some minor drilling to have the holes mate but that was no problem.I fished my wiring through the manufacturers existing routes and tapped into my reverse lights, attaching them with a Hopkins 4 Flat extension that I cut in half.Im in business!

Excellent! After a long while of trying to find a comparable replacement on that A site, I found etrailer.com. They had an exact match to the light that was originally on my trailer. The installation was simple and now I have two matching lights again and one neither is flooded with water. 424014


Comments

Unfortunately, the new light has leaked and now has water in it. Otherwise it seems to be doing well.

I attached two of these clear utility lights to each aft side of my boat trailer. They are wired to the backup lights on the truck. This gives me excellent lighting when backing down my curving driveway. Clear utility lights are much brighter than regular backup lights and allow me to see the driveway even on the darkest nights. 115416


Comments

Lights work great! They have made backing up a long dark driveway much easier. Now I have plenty of light on each side of my boat trailer. Slim profile and water proof just right for a boat trailer.

Works good, and is decently bright for a back up light. Like the two wire design and flange mounting. Put it on a boat trailer for back up lights. Did add extra sealant around the flange to clear lens, just to help the factory plastic welded connection. Have had no issues so far. 647120

Good light we'll use for bed off truck. Thinking of attaching magnets to either side via the mounting holes to keep from drill holes in the truck. Also not quit sure where I wasn't them exactly. This we'll give me flexibility 589600

by:

These illuminate adequately for what I purchased them for. Brighter would be better but they help take some of the guesswork out of backing up in the dark. I’d say they light up as well as my truck’s reverse lights. These are mounted on our 20’ boat trailer. 581532

I am still happy with this purchase and would recommend it to future buyers.

I bought 4 of these lights and used them to illuminate the engine room. They're still working and did a great job of brightening the entire area, and were easy to install. 484351

Still working fine. Think if they had a slight radius or convex they would have an even better light distribution. In the future if this is done I would try them. Thanks

Added these to the back of my trailer for reverse lights. Makes backing the trailer down the 100' drive MUCH easier at night. Also let the cars driving by that I am backing up, and maybe they will stop trying to go around me. Wishful thinking. 213844

Sorry no pictures. I'm on the road. Will send soon. Installed on my Motorhome. Mounted two on each side close to axles so I can see tires when pulling into campgrounds. One at the back to assist in unhooking tow vehicle and one over windshield to see low hanging branches. Works like a dream. Will be adding more to help me see. I wired them into my cargo light circuit so I just flip my dash switch and light up the highway while driving. Sweet. 203367

Product is of good quality, and the lights are quite bright. I like that the housing is plastic, we are in the Northeast, and these lights will see a considerable amount of salt. We will see if the wiring holds up to the road salt! 191576

Do you have a question about this Trailer Light?


  • Recommended Lights for 28 Foot Gooseneck Horse Trailer
  • The LED Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn, Backup - Submersible - 14 Diodes - Oval - Pigtail # STL68RB will help give you backup lights, with 4 bright white LED's. Since you stated that your main goal is to gain backup lights, the Sealed 6-1/2" Oval LED Trailer Utility Light, Flange Mount, 10 Super Diode - Clear # BUL78CB has 10 bright LED lights that will give you a much better light for backing up, so I recommend leaving your current lights and adding these brighter lights.

  • How to Wire LED Trailer Utility Light # BUL78CB to Turn On and Off when Needed
  • The best way you could wire LED Trailer Utility Light # BUL78CB to turn on and off on demand is to wire it in line with a switch, # PK34513. The power wire from the light would attach to a wire on the switch and the other switch wire would go to the positive battery terminal. Don't forget to ground the light's white wire!

  • Why is the Optronics LED Clear Oval Trailer Utility Light # BUL72CB Not Certified as a Backup Light
  • The Sealed, 6-1/2 inch Oval LED Trailer Utility Light, Flange Mount, 10 Super Diode - Clear, item # BUL78CB, does not meet DOT FMVSS 108 requirements, for backup lights so it cannot be sold as a backup light. That does not mean that the light cannot be used in that situation for applications where a DOT requirement does not need to be met. In short, the Trailer Utility Light, item # BUL78CB, can be used as a backup light, but if your trailer needs to meet DOT requirements you will need...

  • Will the Optronics Snap-on Reflector Ring # A78RXB Fit STL78 and BUL78 Trailer Lights
  • I spoke with my contact at Optronics and verified that the Snap-on Reflector Ring, # A78RXB, will fit the BUL78 and STL78 series LED trailer lights. The configurations of the lights are the exact same. The only difference is one is a backup light (BUL78) and one is a stop, turn and tail light (STL78). It is not customary to put a red reflector ring around a clear light, but there is no reason why you could not do that. Keep in mind, the # BUL78CB is a utility light, so it will have...

  • How Would Reverse Light Install on a Boat Trailer
  • You would need to have a reverse light circuit ran to your trailer to power reverse lights. If you have a 5-way flat or 7-way trailer connector currently then that circuit is already present. If you have a 4-way harness then you would need to install the part # 20036 on your tow vehicle to allow you to have that circuit. The # BUL78CB is a white light that would work well for this.

  • DOT Approved Trailer LED Reverse Light and an LED Interior Trailer Light
  • Optronics light # BUL78CB is a utility light so it is not DOT approved to be used as anything other than that. For the interior of the trailer it will work fine, it doesn't have to be DOT approved since it isn't a tail, marker, reverse, brake, or turn signal light. It is about as tough as any other trailer light that you would find but I would not expose it to repeated impact from cargo. the lens or flange would eventually crack.

  • Light Output of Optronics LED Utility Light # BUL78CB Versus Standard # 1156 Bulb
  • The light output delivered by the Optronics # BUL78CB would be considerably greater than that of a single 1156 single filament bulb. A single 1156 would put out about 32 Candela, while the Optronics # BUL78CB puts out 125 Candela. If you were considering using the # BUL78CB as a back-up lamp, keep in mind that it does not meet DOT specifications as a back-up lamp. This will not present a problem unless your trailer is used commercially. If you need to meet DOT specs, use a lamp like...

  • Comparing Optronics LED Lights Candela Output
  • My contact at Optronics was able to give me a brightness comparison between their LED lights # BUL78CB and # ILL31CB. Although both use 10 LEDs, the BUL78CB uses super diodes that deliver a lot more actual light output. Optronics was able to give me the candela specification for each light. This scale differs from lumens but it still gives you a good comparison basis. A common candle emits light with a luminous intensity of roughly one candela. Light # ILL31CB offers 44 candela output...

This item includes both ground and positive wire leads that exit from the rear of the housing.

  • How to Wire in the Optronics Sealed LED Utility Light # BUL78CB as Trailer Reverse Lights
  • You would not need to install a relay to use the Sealed Optronics Lights # BUL78CB on your trailer. These LED lights draw such a minimal amount of amperage that all you would need to do is tap into the reverse light circuit of your trailer wiring and you would be good to go. I attached an FAQ article on trailer wiring for you to check out also.

  • Availability of Reverse Light Similar in Shape and Size to MCL48CAB

At a distance of 1 foot, the candela output is equal to the output in lumens. This light has the highest candela output of any of our 6-1/2 inch oval LED lights.

  • Trailer Lighting Needed for Loading a Boat onto a Trailer In the Dark

  • The Sealed, 6-1/2" Oval LED Trailer Utility Light # BUL78CB that you referenced is pretty bright.

  • Optronics Oval LED Trailer Light Recommendation for a 53 ft Enclosed Trailer
  • The Sealed, 6-1/2 inch Oval LED Trailer Utility Light # BUL78CB that you referenced would be an excellent choice to provide lighting on a trailer to help with night time loading. Since it is an LED light it would not put an excessive load on your trailer wiring either. Check out the review video I attached for this light also. If you wanted to dress up the appearance of the light you could get a Chrome Accent Ring # A78CB also.

  • Is Optronics Oval LED Trailer Utility Light BUL78CB Submersible
  • You can submerse Optronics trailer light # BUL78CB. The housing and lens unit are sealed. You will also need to make sure the wiring gets sealed up water tight. You can use heat shrink tubing or coat the connections in liquid electrical tape, # SWC50122. I have included a link to a video review for this light for you.

  • The Sealed, 6-1/2" Oval LED Trailer Utility Light # BUL78CB that you referenced is very bright. This light produces 175 candela which should be brighter than DOT back up lights. I attached a review video for more info. There are no DOT standards that dictate that a reverse light has to be at least a certain brightness so it's hard to say for certain if this light would be brighter than any DOT reverse light.

This would be a great light to light up the interior of an enclosed trailer or if you needed to light up an area on the exterior of your trailer at night. As far as DOT or SAE is concerned it has no specific ratings since it's not designed for taillight signal use. I attached a review video for...
