Optronics Trailer Lights - License Plate Lights - LPL81C1B Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Optronics LED trailer license plate light. This is going to illuminate your license plate on your trailer to make it visible to other drivers, and also to stay within DOT compliance. It's going to be durable housing, polycarbonate lens and housing's also made of that polycarbonate. This is sonically sealed, so that means that the housing and the lens unit are submersible. It's going to work for marine trailers or really any trailer that's going to be out in the elements for a long time. It's going to keep any dirt, water, debris from getting in there and causing issues with your electrical connections.

It should be a long lasting light that we don't have to worry about.We'll have the bracket attached to it. It has two little ears coming off the sides so we can mount this up. It does not come with any hardware for this, so you will have to provide some mounting hardware on your own. But the other nice thing about this light is that it is an LED light. So we'll have longer lasting bulbs.

Not only is it sealed from the elements, but we don't have to worry about any filaments, any brittle bulbs from breaking, and causing issues there. They should last for a long time. Typically LEDs last up to 50 times longer than your typical incandescent bulb. Virtually no maintenance with these.The wiring is just this plug at the back. It accepts an industry standard two prong plug.

I have mine here connected to a power source. Plug those up. There are a lot of options for these two prong plugs available at if you want to pick one up to make wiring your trailer a little bit easier. We turn on that light. See, it's nice and bright.

We'll have our white LEDs to give us that clear illumination. I'm going to turn the lights out here in the studio so you can get a better idea of what it'll look like, an idea of what it'll look like in the dark. It's pretty bright for such a small light. It'll do a good job of illuminating our license plate. So I grab an example here. Set that above my license plate. You can see it illuminates it pretty well.Turn our power source off, and let's take some measurements. The light at its greatest point is about 2 1/4 inches deep. And then the housing is about three inches wide. The ears of our bracket at the widest point is about four inches wide. And that's about two inches tall. The wiring coming off the back is over 12 inches. Let me grab my handy tape measure. And it looks like that wiring coming off the back is about 16 inches long, or excuse me, about 17 inches long. So should be a good amount of length to get that connected up to the rest of your trailer's wiring. We'll have three diodes in there. The power draw at 12 volts is 0.035 amps, so very low power draw. And there is a limited lifetime warranty on the LEDs from Optronics. And that's going to do it for our look at the Optronics LED trailer license plate light.
