    I actually diyed with a regular flood light I had around, and this is the cheapest I can find in Ebay. But same idea. Still works great, if not a fan of diy? Just fork up a bit more for one that has the complete cord.

    I had this before too, one thing I don’t like this is that it’s not fully waterproof and salt creep got into the led part and the screw joint

    From google
    Silicone rubber, unlike the majority of other rubbers, can withstand extreme temperatures way above 200°C and down to as low as -60°C without deforming.

    that's just the LED module without the driver and the power plug.
