Baja Designs waterproofs its LED lights

SAN MARCOS, Calif. - Baja Designs claims its new Moisture Block cord solves one of the biggest problems of LED lights: water in the light. Moisture Block completely stops water from wicking its way up the cord and into the lights, the company said.

“Our lights have to be impervious to pretty much everything — dust, rain, snow, water crossings and collisions to name a few,” said founder and chief engineer Alan Roach. “Our new Moisture Block cord system is a fail-safe way to make sure that our lights are 100 percent waterproof no matter how harsh the conditions are and even if the customer cuts off our waterproof connector.”

Customers who do cut off the connector do not void their warranties.

In other Baja Designs news, the company’s Squadron and SII LED lights (the first of which is pictured) are now available in a salt-water-resistant white coating for marine dealers.  

“I am an avid fishing enthusiast, and as everyone knows, boat deck lighting can be power hungry and extremely fatiguing to the human eye,” said Baja Designs engineer Tex Mitchell. “The Squadron and SII are available in four patterns and utilize uService technology which gives the pattern choices and customization that has been lacking in the marine market. On top of that, the 5,000-kelvin color temperature is comfortable to the eye and provides excellent color recognition.”
