Black Oak LED 50 Inch Double Row Marine Review

LED light bar applications on boats demand first and foremost reliability followed by top performance and that is exactly what the Black Oak M-Series of LED light bars offers. These light bars are built with the best components available from the LEDs to the driver circuitry to the housing and optics. Years after installing them, they are as bright as when new.

The housing is as rugged as they come and you can see how heavily finned is the heat sink on the back as soon as you remove it from the box. Those fins even have milled grooves in them to further increase heat-dissipating surface area.

The computer-designed reflectors, are designed to push over 95% of each LED’s light output forward. Combined with quality, modular LED drivers, you get the most lumens per watt of input power possible regardless of whether your boat runs a 12V, 24V or 28V electrical system. The complete design also ensures optimal longevity for every LED.

In the very unlikely event an LED or even a module fails, the remainder of the light bar keeps on shining. That actually happened to one buyer, but under Black Oak’s limited lifetime warranty, that light bar was fully replaced in just a few days.

This big 50-incher is not for every boat owner, but when you need maximum illumination at night there is no other light bar that surpasses it.

verdictOur Verdict

We confidently rate the Black Oak M-Series 50 inch LED light bar with a full five stars for its durability, high-performance specs, superior intrusion rating and the exceptional value it offers.

The biggest names in LED light bars cannot beat it on all those counts. If you have hesitated to add a big light bar to your boat because of either cost or concerns about reliability, then Black Oak has the answer you have been waiting for.
