The original and the best.

Since we invented the LED camp light bar back in 2008, Hardkorr camp light bars have been the only choice for campers who want quality built products that will last for many years. The design has changed and new features introduced over the years, but it’s still made with the same meticulous attention to detail that made us a household name.

More recently, many 4×4 enthusiasts have also discovered how useful these lights can be in canopies, tailgates and toolboxes. Hardkorr now supplies these lights to some of the biggest names in 4×4 customisation as well as thousands of DIYers every year.

This 48cm LED camping light bar is our most popular and versatile size. It can produce both orange and white light; the orange light will reduce the presence of bugs by up to 90%, while the white light provides maximum brightness. It is commonly used for campsite lighting and illuminating the side doors of touring canopies.

This kit also includes accessories for pole mounting, powering, dimming and changing the colour of the light.

Key features

  • NEW Tri-colour dimmers: allows you to select between cool white, warm white and orange light at the touch of a button
  • Thicker bar profile for added strength and improved appearance
  • Multiple light bar mounting options:
    • Inbuilt magnets for attachment to most metal surfaces
    • Removable pole clips (sold separately) for easy attachment to non-magnetic tent poles
  • Removable diffusers for a wider angle, softer light beam
  • Removable end caps make flush mount applications look even better by hiding the join between the cable and the bar end
  • Reinforced grommets to prevent wire breakage at light bar ends
  • IP68 waterproof rating means the lights are completely watertight (in fact they will run underwater)
  • Waterproof locking DC connectors on all cables
  • Heavy-duty, double insulated cables to prevent voltage drop, which results in brighter bars
  • Minimal heat output, unlike gas lamps
  • Low power consumption – can be left on all night without affecting your battery

From orange to white at the touch of a button.

 

Often imitated, never duplicated.

The LED camp lights that Hardkorr invented are now seen across thousands of Australian campsites. In the years since we introduced them to the market, we’ve developed and released many innovations and improvements designed to make your camping experience comfortable and hassle-free, including orange/white technology, reinforced grommet ends, inbuilt magnets, removable pole clips and more.

We’ve now taken the next leap forward in design and technology, making lighting your campsite even easier by addressing some of the key gripes campers had with previous LED lighting technology. Our exclusive diffusers, now included with all light bars, create a much wider, more pleasant light beam – no more LEDs shining in your eyes if you’re on the wrong angle! The light bar pole clips make attaching your bars to non-magnetic tent poles much easier.

Additionally, flush mounting is now easier and looks better thanks to our wire-covering end caps and flush mount clips (flush mount clips sold separately).

And if all that wasn’t enough… our new dimmers give these kits the ability to now produce three shades of light: cool white, warm white and orange! The new warm white setting gives off a light that is nearly as bright as cool white, but with a pleasant soothing warmth to the colour.

How does orange light reduce bug presence?

Switching between cool white, warm white and orange

Some bugs, like mosquitos and moths, can’t help but move their body towards any light source they can see. This phenomenon is called positive phototaxis. Entomologists still don’t have a complete understanding of why this phenomenon exists, but it is clearly observable in nature.

Of course, bugs will only be attracted to light they can see, and there is a useful difference between the spectra of light which are visible to humans compared to bugs. Humans can generally see light which has a wavelength between 380nm (blue) and 740nm (red). Most bugs, conversely, can see light with a wavelength between 300nm and 600nm.

The wavelength of our orange LEDs is 610nm, putting them outside of the spectrum visible to must bugs, but still well inside the boundaries of human vision. As a result, most bugs will not congregate around our orange light because they simply don’t know it is there.
