LED sukkah lights in the US
« on: November 03, 2019, 12:03:13 PM »
I was in Israel for Sukkos and the stores were selling waterproof LED lights that were 3-4" wide. My hosts had one in their sukkah and it was very nice, much better than the shop light I've used forever. Are these available in the US?

I got 3 LED shop lights at HD, but initially only put 2 of them up. One went bad. When I put up the next one I decided to leave it in the plastic bag it came in, just as an extra measure of protection.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I bought outdoor fixtures and put LED bulbs into them.

This type of fixture but much cheaper and a few of them.
Sea Gull Lighting 6039-965 Lancaster Three-Light Outdoor Pendant Light With Clear Curved Beveled Glass Panels, Antique Brushed Nickel Finish ($164.18)

These aren't shop lights. They're narrower and shorter. Where I was it rained pretty hard once, but clearly EY isn't the best place to test how waterproof sukkah lights are.

I got the Fiet shoplight from Costco and all the wholes were directly against the 2x4 so no rain got into it despite the heavy rain over Hoshanah Rabbah. (incidentally, the 1st one I got was ruined when the succah collapsed in the storm, and Costco took it back without a problem)

oops! FTFM thanks to @ckmk47 for pointing it out.
