    Hi,

    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

    Siliconing, that's a good idea. Thanks.

    Does silicone hold up under hot conditions?

    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.

    That’s a huge range. Good to know.
