Product Review: Elfeland UV LED Bar Light

The Elfeland UV LED Bar Light is a party Black light that produces a super bright and flicker-free disco lighting effect.

This UV LED bar light creates awesome lighting effects with fluorescent body paints and ink, balloons, candles, cosmetics, bubbles, sticks and wall stickers that glow in the dark!

And it’s also widely used in bands, clubs, dancehalls, performance stages, theatrical productions, DJ events and mobile light shows.

But is it any good? Will it impress me? Time to test it out!

You get a UK Plugtop supplied and fitted and a cable that has a length of around 110.0cm too.

You’re able to control everything from the supplied remote control, mine didn’t work.  This was due to the supplied CR2032 only having a 0.7VDC charge! So, I had to change this straight away.  But why bother? The remote is useless anyway, unless you basically touch the light with the remote control!

But, things are about to get a lot worse for this light, and I mean a lot worse.

Dangerous Item Alert!

I saw that you need to fit the brackets in to each end and use a screw that’s supplied to affix the end brackets.  I saw a White cable running across the thread, which I thought was strange.  Then I realised that if I did indeed screw in the end bracket as shown in the manual I would potentially be meeting a live cable and the bracket would become live!

I decided to take apart the light bar, and you’ll never guess what I found.

There’s no earth or bonding to the casing either!  The cable installed is a three core Live/Neutral/Earth flex cable, but the earth cable was clipped, and the light only had a Live & Neutral installation internally.

Don’t forget the light is rated for 230V AC and is a metal cased fixture with no earth protection whatsoever.  Imagine touching any of the metal exterior parts and it was live!

This could happen with this light as the screw of the bracket would cut into the cable and make the whole light fixture live.
