1. Who makes Gator-
2. Why use Gator-
3. How long do Gator-
4. How long will a light last on one marine battery?
One of our fishing lights draws 2.2 amps. If you have a 100amp hour battery, divide the 100 by 2.2 and you get 45.45 hours of run time. A group 27 deep cycle battery is approximately 150 amp hours. You could run a Gator-
All GatorTough Lights are Engineered to have the Highest output, Highest Luminous Flux, and Low Amperage Draw for today Shrimping and Fishing applications! All in a 12 volt environment
We have deployed and tested 5 Gator-
So draining your batter is not a problem with any of GatorToughts Lights™
Of course I always put my batteries on charge when out of the water, keeping them fully charged and ready for my next Shrimping, Fishing and Gigging trip…
5. Why GREEN LED lights?
We manufacture GREEN LED lights. Mainly because GREEN LED lights work better in the lake and coastal salt waters. There’s some science behind the GREEN LED lights as well. But mainly because they are easy on your eyes, attract fish, baitfish and let you see more shrimp!!
Here’s information about why we love the GREEN LED lights better then any other color…
In the old days they used halogen and florescent lights… along with noisy gas eating Generators...
Small Size: SMD LED light source is a very small and light chips enveloped by epoxy resin.
Low Power Consumption: Our Gator-
High Brightness: Our Gator-
As above, we have mentioned about the SMD 3528, 5050, 5630, and 5730 and H.I.D. 5050, 5630, and 5730. What do they mean and what are the differences between the three? Let’s see the following:
18. What if the difference between those lights that you can switch from white to green?
OK, here's the scoop, Think about it.
First: GREEN is Easy on your eyes, GREEN Attract fish and bait fish, GREEN cuts through the water without any glair which allows you to see more Shrimp..
Second: Shrimp do not like light, white light deters them, There is a science behind GREEN light which is not as visible to Shrimp.
Third: when you switch from green to white, you are only using half (1/2) of the led lights, because the other half are turned off. Thus defeating the purpose of a High Luminous light field.
Forth: White and Green lights wash out when turned on, making an Amber Yellowish color
Fifth: White and Green lights are a gimmick to get you to buy more lights, there is no science behind White and Green lights, other than. Shrimp do not like light, white light deters Shrimp. White and Green lights wash out and turns to Amber Yellowish color… So why not make a yellow light? Because it deters Shrimp.
Sixth: As a Manufacture of Shrimp Lights, we would make whatever Light that works best. Whether White, Green, Yellow Red etc.. Since there is a science behind Green Lights, this is what we use in all our Gator Tough Lights…
GatorTough™ has made Green and White Tube lights for our product research and development team to test and experiment with, as we do all with all our GatorTough Lights™. Upon completion of the lights and putting them through our tough experimental and testing process, the lights worked perfectly as all our lights do.
Seventh: GatorTough™ has made Green and White Tube lights for our product research and development team to test and experiment with, as we do all with all our GatorTough Lights™. Upon completion of the lights and putting them through our tough experimental and testing process, the lights worked perfectly as all our lights do.
While the Green and White light was a good produce, it did not perform well for Shrimping.
We have determined while the white light is bright and intense. Too intense as a matter of fact. you can see Shrimp with it, but you can also see the shrimp swimming away from and backing away from the white light. That the white light and the amber light actually deters the Shrimp away from the white light. (See How to Catch Shrimp)
When you turn both the green and white on at the same time it washed out the green and white making amber or yellow color and was just as bright as the white.
So you may see some White and Green lights being marketed, but I believe it’s a big gimmick. If you have 150 LED lights in your Shrimp light, half or 75 light would be white and the other half would be green. That’s half the amount of the good green and half the amount of the bright white that deter shrimp. And if you turn both the green and white on at the same time it washed out the green and white making amber or yellow color white is just as bright as the white. So you’ll find yourself using the green all of the time… using only one half of your lights.
So this is why GatorTough™ chooses to only manufacture Green Shrimp Lights.
Thus it is our opinion after ridged testing, that the white and green lights to not perform well for Shrimping.
So whoever tells you that white light work great for shrimping may also have some swamp land to sell you.
This is why GatorTough™ only manufactures GREEN LED Shrimp Lights, they are easy on your eyes and do not deter the shrimp. The Shrimp will actually swim right into the light, and into your kill zone, awaiting for you to dip net them up and into your bucket.
Our GatorTough™ Green LED Lights have just enough glow to produce back drop lighting to show the shrimp swimming into your kill zone, without having the blinding effect of blinding you and the shrimp as the white lights do.
And Last: We manufacture all our GatorTough Lights here in the US. We import all of our LED Lights Strips made with our specifications, and customize all our LED Light Strips to fit our Gator Tough Lights Design. We use a Tri-
