When looking for your outdoor spot light fixtures, a Kichler Radiax 6.5 watt LED will be a nice fit for most landscapes for up lighting (pointing your light up).  We will look at the fixture and what it takes to hook up and enjoy.

radiax 2What you get in the box

The box is kinda small and you think this light will not put out much illumination.  The fixture is 3″ around and 4.75″ long and has a sealed cast aluminum housing to protect it from the weather.  This fixture is really bright with 590 Lumens of bright white light. The fixture is already assembled and ready for the 8″ ground stake mount to be installed. When you go to connect to your power run, you have a 24″ lead wire and pro series wire connector included.

This 13 watt fixture should last about 40000 hours.  The 5 LED light should last the life of the fixture and never need replacement.  The spotlight will have a 60 degree beam spread, look at options below.  The light will shine mostly on what it is pointed at.

What do you need to install and how does it work

The installation of this light fixture will be quite easy.  Just have to be within the 24″ lead wire range and use the included connectors to hook up.  This fixture does not come with a transformer, see my article on choosing the correct transformer for your low voltage lights.  Make sure this fixture gets at least 12 volts of power to get the most out of it.

For adjusting the illumination, the fixture can be adjusted 115 degrees up.  With the ability to rotate the base of the mounting stake, you can highlight any object that is within light distance.
