I bought a couple of “30W RGB flood with remote” lights on eBay for not a lot of money.
It came with a short mains tail (no plug) and one of those thin IR remote controls.
First thing I did was to open one up.
As expected, the mains earth wire was floating about.
This seems to be usual practice in these cheap Chinese lights.
Everything suggests that it should be a 30W light, but is it ?
I wonder if the brand name is trying to seem like Mean Well ?
The driver / controller seems to suggest that it’s 30W total.
A new mains flex with Australian plug was fitted.
The earth wire now connects securely to the case.
So, what was the power consumption?
It’s clear that the controller is throttling back the individual
colours when more than one colour element is active.
Interestingly the red LEDs are slightly illuminated when the unit is switched off by the remote.
The power consumption was around 1.1W when off (standby).
In real life the red was not as bright as this picture suggests.
It was still pretty usable though.
The trees naturally take the green colour more readily.
Overall, the light seems useful for the price. The remote has buttons for on/off as well as static and changing colours.
You must open them up and provide a proper earth connection though, not simply join onto the supplied mains tail.
