What are light pods used for?

LED light pods can be used in a variety of outdoor applications and can attach to a variety of different points on trucks, SUVs, and Jeeps. We offer LED pod lights in either spot or flood beam patterns.

What are light bars used for?

LED light bars are a tool for providing concentrated, powerful light. North Lights currently offers light bars in a variety of lengths from 10" to 50" in single row or dual/double row options. The LED Light Bars are a combo of flood and spot beam patterns.

What is the difference between spot and flood beam patterns along with combination of flood and spot?

Flood beam patterns are ideal for achieving more side visibility while driving at slower speeds, while spot beam patterns perform at higher speeds and situations where longer visibility is needed.

Combination of spot and flood pattern are used to provide beam of light both on the side and in front to provide optimal visibility.

What does beam pattern mean?

Beam pattern refers to the angle at which the bulbs in an LED light bar cast their light. Spot beams are much narrower in angle and throw a beam a much farther distance, while flood beams provide more light on the sides but are less penetrating. Your choice is dependent upon your intended purpose. Generally, spot beams are better for on-road driving while flood beams are better for off-road. Alternatively, you could choose to go with a light bar that is equipped with a combination of spot and flood LEDs - a highly popular choice.

What is a lumen?

Lumens measure how much light you are getting from a bulb. A standard 60-watt light bulb produces 700-800 lumens of light. North light pods and bars produce 1,940 - 47,600 lumens of light!
