These lights are all made in China, but from what I'm understanding they are very inexpensive. Some have a minimum order but some don't. Also I don't know what the shipping cost would be. But they have some interesting lights and even have some with MV.

Most of them look good

Mmost of the cheap luminaires however have problems of material quality (corroding over time, screws seizing, etc), and if the design relies on gasket for waterproofing, it will leak so better drill a tiny hole in the bottom right away

Is these prices correct though? I don't understand how they sell them for $5-20, and I'm assuming the higher price is if you only buy one. I mean, I know they're cheap and all but how can they sell a cobra head for $20 max? These must be very cheap.

Some of the lights have a video that shows a Chinese lady assemble them and demonstrate them. She works really fast! She tests the photocell with the flashlight on her phone.

I don`t understand who the Chinese think is the market target for these?, surly you can`t copy a range of popular US lanterns, then try to sell them back to the US who have just spent $$$$ getting rid of them all?
With energy prices going higher and higher, who is going to buy job lots of high wattage HID cobra heads???

The few who actually know their business right. But then they probably won't buy the Chinese stuff anyway

I wonder how you actually order them, their site is pretty confusing.

From what I hear, you have to be a company or store to order anything from them.

Some of them look like stolen designs from GE, or AEL, and others look like cheap Caster designs that you used to be able to buy from Walmart.  Either way, Id hold on to my money.

This may be the best you can get in the HID department... They might even come out decent
