    Default 10 Watt RGB Flood Light

    Not sure if anyone is interested but I thought I would post so that my work might benefit others. I found a 10 watt RGB floodlight on E-Bay that was small and waterproof. It comes with a remote and runs on 120VAC. The unit has its on 12VDC power source.
    What I did was create a small circuit using H11A1 (optoisolators transistor output) and hijack the gate on the board inside the light. I run my board off the 12VDC from the built in power supply and lift the gates from the original board. Merely connect the three wires from the 3K resistors to the optos to the gates. I grounded the gates through a 10K resistor.
    If anyone wants more info please let me know.

    By the way I have built a couple of the Mighty Minis, and 5 of the Rainbow Floods, these 10 watt lights are as bright.
    Here are a few more pics.

    Is this it?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Remote-Contr...item35b4df9bc5

    This one matches the picture - but costs just a bit more..

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Waterproof-R...item4841b35772

    I searched on: remote rgb flood

    How does this compare to the DIY versions I've seen posted on here? Probably won't get one this year but definitely next, I have a good spot for one or two.

    Does not say waterproof, but it does have an ingress protection rating of 6/5 (6=Totally protected against dust, 5=Protected against low pressure jets if water from all directions - limited ingress permitted)

    This one does say waterproof, but it is IP65 also.

    Here is the same RGB light from Ray Wu who I have purchased other items from before.

    Apparently there is a 30 watt version too.
