Black Oak 10 Inch D-Series Double Row LED Light Bar

Black Oak’s 10 inch LED light bar in the dual-row D-Series is their most popular seller. It is not difficult to see why. It combines powerful illumination, compact size and over-the-top ruggedness with a super affordable price.

Black Oak light bar designs start with the best-designed, toughest aluminum housings with the highest rating against the ingress of water, fog, dust, snow and ice as specified by international standards. An IP69K intrusion rating requires subjecting their lights to hot, high-pressure water jets from all angles. Thanks to their generous use of stainless steel fasteners, a custom rubber seal and shatterproof polycarbonate lens, their light bars easily pass those tests, so you never have to worry about environmental conditions affecting your lighting investment.

The engineering that goes into the interior of every Black Oak LED light bar is equally impressive. Their 10-inch D-Series LED light bar features 20 of the highest quality OSRAM LEDs in a dual-row configuration. The rated lifespan of these LEDs is 50,000 hours. Cheaper light bars use low-grade LEDs and unreliable circuitry, but Black Oak only installs the highest quality current drivers and a double-size, integral heat sink, which ensure long life and the highest output possible from every LED.

Another reason Black Oak’s 10-inch LED light bar is popular is its versatility in terms of mounting and lighting options. At just 13 inches from bracket tip to bracket tip, a slim 3.4-inch depth and 3.3 inch height, finding a place to mount it is easy. They fit invisibly in most car or truck grilles or bumpers. Additionally, you have a choice of either the 3W or 5W LEDs and three different computer-designed beam patterns, so you can get just the right amount of light right where you want it.

Black Oak light bar quality is palpable the first time you take it out of the shipping carton. You can install these with confidence backed by their superb cash-back guarantee and lifetime warranty against defects. Be sure to check out their D-Series curved 10-inch LED light bar model too.

Review

Black Oak’s 10-inch dual-row light bar will make the best backup light ever for your car or trailer. With the 5W LEDs supplying 11,000 raw lumens of light, they are also popular with tow truck operators, emergency vehicles and heavy equipment drivers for supplemental light to eliminate voids their stock lights cannot cover.

These light bars are most popular, however, with off-road enthusiasts whether they drive full-size 4x4s, ATVs or UTVs. For the latter, one combo beam mounted front and one flood mounted back seems to be a favorite configuration for ensuring full illumination of the trail ahead and high vehicle visibility to the rear. The flood beam is ideal for fully lighting up a campsite on the darkest, star-filled nights too.

Many buyers reserve skepticism about these light bars until they actually see them in operation. They may have been under-whelmed by the brightness of cheap import light bars or even products from bigger name LED light bar makers. They think Black Oak’s affordability is too good to be true. These light bars, as buyers soon find out, are just as rugged and brilliant as anything on the market, however. That is why Black Oak is quickly collecting lots of “thumbs up” from pleased buyers whose expectations were exceeded.

Conclusion

Black Oak LED’s D-Series 10 inch LED light bar has been designed and engineered from the ground up to match or exceed the specs and ruggedness of even the most expensive, high-quality LED light bars from top U.S. manufacturers. Their products have achieved their mission to supply the best quality LED light bars at the best prices.

The 10-inch D-Series light bar is one of their most popular products because it is so well built, so affordable and can fit so many applications. Buy this one with complete confidence backed by an industry-leading cash-back guarantee, a lifetime limited warranty and top-notch customer service.
