Some Dude just bought a Football Stadium Light and tested it on in his House

In this video I get the rare opportunity to test out an industrial grade LED stadium light, and my goodness it's bright! More info:


Vaustick : Hey im DIY Perks and im building a *S U N*

tupperware : put a bat symbol on it and shine it at a cloud

Maxx B : Next time on DIY Perks, I'll show you how to make a stadium for your new 1000w light, out of some MDF, a few offcuts of timber and some repurposed aluminium brackets.

ASFP : Add a motion sensor and you've got the worlds best security light.

Kketansa Art : The Neighbour be like- "OO MY GOD Stella..! I told you to wake me up in the morning at 6!" :O!! Stella- "Go to sleep honey, its Mr.Perks".... -_- ...

Eddygeek18 : Honestly $1000 was cheaper than i was expecting. Great video, it's awesome to see industry grade equipment :D

evilution : Big Clive would need a larger bench.

manystar : so that's how u got your skin tan

JMMC1005 : Regarding the reflectors, they're known as total internal reflection, or 'TIR' optics. Basically they work by ensuring that all the light hits the boundary of the plastic at an angle greater than the critical angle. It all gets reflected forward and out of the front, rather than refracting out the sides. It's similar to how an optical fibre doesn't lose light out the side, even though it doesn't have a mirror coating.

Damian Reloaded : 6:28 NOOOOOOO DON'T GO INTO THE LIGHT!!!!

Ignorance : Would love to see that shined toward a hillside to get an idea of falloff over distance. Very cool.

Jim Allmon : That would make a GREAT security light!

Cekpi7 : You know it's bright when he uses sunglasses at night lol

letmelooktv : "you probably wont be buying this to light your garden" lol I can think of quite a few who would love that to light their "garden"

GG Next : That's one sleep cycle braking tool!

Şahabüddin TANRIKULU : This is brighter than my future!

TheSaintST1 : I think PhotonicInduction would have something to say about this....

Dr. Alpenföhn-Kühler. : After this video... ...what will you use it for? I mean is there any practic use for this unless you own a stadium or if you are hosting Kiss?

TheSasquatch33 : In the next episode, DIY Perks tests out an LED that draws more power than the sun and lights up the seams to other dimensions.

timfantry : Loving the more frequent uploads and great videos keep it up Matt!

Eric Marcus : We are also building and testing LED lights for stadiums at my shop. These LEDs are small, about the size of your pinky finger nail. Each panel is to hold 50 of these LEDs and takes 40amps to power it. The board they are soldered on is a 3ft by 10in piece of aluminum and the side that holds the LEDs looks like a regular white PCB, the back side is attached to a huge heat sink. I have one of the LEDs here on me cause it was defective. Each of the LEDs has 10 cells and the one I have only 9 work so its defective. I can power it on with a 9 volt battery and its bright enough to blind me. I can tweet you a picture of one of the LEDs if you want to see what this one looks like. Oh yeah, 4 of these are bright enough to light up a hole stadium, 1 panel has 50 LEDs and there are 4 panels per lighting unit and 4 for each corner of a stadium.

Phalanx 380 : could you get you hands on a light like what the police use on there helicopters

drutgat2 : Thanks. That shed some light on the subject.

JFrame : I wasn't obsessed with lighting colors until I came across your channel. Now I'm all into buying LEDs and mixing warmth for good ambience.

SDG Danny : Cooooool I want one.

Sion : *Strap this thing at the back of your car, then next time someone doesn't properly turn off their high-beams...* ;P

Open Eye : But why.... 🤔

James Collins : That thing is a beast!

Dean Desmond : If someone drivers behind u with high beams turn on that bad boy 😂😂

reggiep75 : The light panel went on and suddenly all of the birds thought it was time to wake up having only went to bird 2 hours earlier!

bookmarkthis : Should have talked about the passive cooling.

Iconoclasttastic : 'Holy macaroni and cheese" :) What did you do with this behemoth? I can think of a use!

electronicsNmore : Wow, that's some light! I could imagine how much it cost them to ship that crate to you.

David House Sr. : Do they make a Motorcycle mount for that light to my bike?? That's the perfect brightness I need! :D

Jerry Grey : Now waiting for the 10,000 watt light...

Rafael : That consistency with the vids 👊👊

Moriarty Vivaldi : Nice, get a few of em and make it day 24/7.

nzuliddu : "Holy maccarroni cheese" worth all my 9 minutes of life spent watching this video

Spider Pig : Y tho... What consumer would want to buy stadium lights??

Peter Brown : You think you love lights? Not as much as this guy...

Bodragon : Should have use a 5 amp fuse in the plug there. Not 13A. .

bestamerica : ' try use a dimmer control on the LED stadium light

wobbly sauce : Testing in the car was fine, but you did not get all the light as the bottom row was below the sill.

BrunoPOWEEER : Woooowww so much LED POWEEEEEERRR ohhh yeaaahhh!!!

FlumenSanctiViti : Sun: _"How do you like them photons, Earth?"_ Mat: _"Hold my smoothie..."_

D-TeK : 4:09 did you kill that mosquito just by clapping your hands? amazing !! (bottom left corner ;))

Benjie zheng : This 1000w led stadium light is 150lm/w, welcome to visit to know more information about the lights

Moth : **heavy breathing**

papalevies : Next on DIY Perks: WD B1620-26 white dwarf vs 1000W studio light for cinematography. Which is better?
