Anybody heard anything about Tuff LED?

Saw these on Amazon and am considering these as backup/ camping lights are they are priced very reasonably. Any thoughts on them? Good/bad?

$62.99. That seems pretty decent as long as there water proof like they say they are.

I just might have to pick up a couple of sets of these. Wish someone would go ahead and buy these and test them out so we can get a good review! My wife is getting fed up with some of my purchases... I need justification! haha.

That is true, but I think flood lights are a little different. There are plenty of good LEDs out there, but a good reflector and lens are what costs money. I have seen a lot of good diffused lights, way easier to do diffused

Well I'm glad you guys are as interested as I am. I may give them a shot then, but first Im going to try some strip lights, these from Tuff LED are a #2 idea if the strip lights fail. Nate you know what I'm trying to accomplish and I think this spool of strip lights is identical to what v led is selling for much less. They both use the 5050 tri chip leds at 300 led per spool.

At v led 60" of this is $60:
WHITE 5K STRIP LIGHT STRIPLIGHT 3 CHIP 90 LED 60 INCH

The Amazon seller is selling 15m (nearly 600") of what I see as the same thing for $25:
Amazon Amazon

What are your opinions on this?

While browsing V LED's site, I came across these:
27W 9 LED FLOOD AUX WORK TRACTOR SUV TRUCK LIGHT 1620LM

Absolutely identical (look at back of housing and lens) to the Tuff LED ones, but V led want $70 for one vs Tuff only wanting $63 for TWO.

I've not used the LED strip lights from that particular Amazon vendor but I have used that type of strip light for a variety of projects and they are good stuff!

If you are looking to put some strip lighting in your truck cap also look into these:

Amazon.com: Abco Tech®Waterproof 150 Color Changing SMD5050 LED Lighting Strip Kit RGB 16.4ft +44 Remote: Home Improvement

THese can create some neat color changing mood light... boom-chicka-pow

I could definitely see using some for reverse lights then if diffused are a safe bet. And some strip lights for the bed would be nice.
Mmm lights. =]
