LED yard light needed. SMD versus COB version

Hi everyone,

i need to buy a wall mounted yard light with PIR sensor. Our store has both SMD version with multiple chips or COB version with one large chip. Price wise they are almost the same. Are there any pros and cons between these versions? Which one would you go for and why?

This decision shouldn’t be made on the basis of the design of the emitters. There are probably some other differences such as color temperature, CRI, intensity, or presence/absence of flicker. Those are much more important.

Both models are the same price, same low 70 CRI, same supposedly NW tint at 4500 K. Both have same PIR sensor, difference is mainly in design.

so the cheap COB leds I have pretty much all flicker or act in a very random way. more expensive ones are really better, the tricky part is: how do you differentiate them? There is not always a brand or type in the item description.

Do you have any product links or are you building these lights? Which store are you looking at? HD? Lowes?

The only info I could find on the COB version packaging was that the led is “Epistar Chip”.

If they aren’t priced less than these and you don’t have any real aspirations or a link to your store as suggested then go to Amazon and punch in Missbee . I’ve had their 100W/10000L/warm version mounted outside with no problems to date.

(Flagguys.com):..and man o man did they ever refuse to be subjugated. These guys were everywhere. They were important in Washington’s siege of Boston. They stayed behind and were the last to leave after covering the main army’s dangerous nick of time retreat from Long Island. They crossed the Delaware with Washington. They were “..at Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, and every major skirmish, and battle all the way to Yorktown..” where they fought “the most important part of the siege” according to General Steuben. These guys saw action in every one of the original 13 colonies.

I have a thread I started just above yours and got this information and purchased it yesterday. Seems like some great numbers and fantastic amount of light.
