Battery Powered Uplighters

Hire battery powered uplighters in Manchester and the Northwest

Due to demand for completely wireless uplighting we have added battery powered uplighters to our hire stock. The units that we have available for hire also have the added advantage of having pure white LEDs as well as red, green and blue.

These are also the most compact uplighters that we stock, which makes them perfect for tight spaces.

  • 12x 1-watt LEDs (3 watts per colour)

Applications for battery powered uplighters

Although there is the obvious advantage that battery operated uplighters are quick and easy to set up, there are other less obvious reasons why you might want to use them. There are many situations where there is plenty of power available in a room but there will be that one awkward area, maybe between two doorways, where there’s no plug socket and it’s really difficult to safely run a power cable to.

Using a battery powered uplighter solves that problem. There’s no reason why you can’t mix and match, having most of the lighting in the room mains powered so that you don’t have to think about the batteries, but then adding a few battery uplighters here and there in the places that need them.

A few things to consider

Unlike our standard uplighters, you need to make sure that you don’t switch on the uplighters until you need them or you might find that they run out of power. They last around 6 hours when using a single colour at full brightness.

You should also consider security when placing the uplighters. It’s a good idea to avoid any places where the lights might “wander off” such as an area of a hotel where the public have access to. If you mention to any venue staff that you have hired the uplighters and paid a security deposit then they should assist in keeping an eye on them.
