Review of Optronics Trailer Lights STL201RB


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number STL201RB. This is the electronics LED trailer light. It's a low profile round trailer tail light. This is going to serve four functions. You're going to have your stop light function, tail light, turn signal light, and here in the center it's going to have a back-up light function. The unit is sonically sealed so it has a nice water proofed design.

It can be submerged under water. LED's are going to make great replacements for incandescent lights. They're going to last a lot longer. They're going to be much more efficient. You don't have to worry about replacing bulbs and you don't have to worry about brittle filaments. It's going to feature a poly carbonate lens as well as a poly carbonate housing.

Very strong and durable. We're going to have the red lens for the tail light area and then the clear lens right here in the center for the back-up light. This is designed to be a recessed mount installation with a mounting grommet and hardware that's both going to be sold separately. You can find those right here on our website. Here on the back side you can see it's going to have two different connection points. This side right here is going to control the stop light, your tail light, and turn signal lights.

That's going to use your industry standard three prong plug. Here on this side this is going to be for your back-up light function. It's only going to require 2 prong connection so the standard 2 prong plug. Both those plugs are going to be sold separately. The unit is Department of Transportation compliant. We're going to take a look at the over-all dimensions real quick starting with the over all diameter.

Measuring from edge to edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about 4 5/16 of an inch. If we take a measurement of the depth including the plug at the back, we're looking at about 1 5/8 of an inch. If we just measure this area right here from the back of the housing to the front of the lens that's going to give us a measurement of about 13/16 of an inch. This light is going to contain a total of 16 diodes or 16 LED's. The power draw at 12.8 volts for the stop and turn signal light is 0.265 amps. For the tail light is 0.24 amps. For the back-up light is 0.3 amps. Optromics is also going to put a life-time warranty on our LED's. We're going to go and hook it up to our external power supply. That way you can see what it looks like with power running to it. Simply just take our plugs, plug them into the back of our housing right here. Here you can see the tail light function. Then if we apply our breaks, you can see how that increases the signal output. It's also going to do that when we activate our turn signal. Now when we activate our back-up light, you can see here that center area is going to light up. Clear LED's through the clear lens sends out a nice consistent signal when we're in reverse. That's going to do it for our look at part number STL201RB.
