Light bars are a hugely popular accessory for off-road enthusiasts, but not all drivers have an extensive budget for this item. Fortunately, there are products that function well and are reasonably priced. The Penton 24-inch Light Bar is one economical option in particular that is worth a closer look.
It has just 40 LED pieces, but the EPISTAR bulbs are 3w and emit 6000k color temperature. This 120w light bar also projects spot/flood combo beam of 60/30 degrees. This means that although it is a smaller product on the market, it nonetheless creates lighting of sufficient quality and quantity for most purposes.
The lenses are made of toughed glass, and the light bar has die-cast aluminum housing. The mounting brackets might not be the most rugged available, but they are suitable for proper installation of this light bar. The IP rating is 67, demonstrating ample water resistant and dust proof qualities. Heavier or sustained water exposure might require a silicone seal, but the light bar is fine as is for the normal amounts of water encountered in off-road usage. The overall construction of the light bar is durable enough to handle typical off-road conditions.
The light bar is mounted and ready to use in a matter of minutes, the task being a particularly easy one for a driver who is handy. Depending on the vehicle and the intended use, installation might take a little longer. Some custom setups might require some strategic drilling.
Not just for going off road, this light bar can be used for a variety of other purposes. One additional use is for outdoor lighting, particularly for back yard events. It could also be used for trailer lights or for construction areas. The light bar might also be installed for boating or docking purposes.
This light bar works well as an entry into off-road accessories or for someone who wants solid functionality on a practical budget. The 2-year warranty on a new light bar makes this even more of a bargain. The lights are distinctly bright for a product of its size, ensuring an enhanced off-road experience.
