Classic Lighted Address Plaque, Black is rated
Rated 3 out of
The only reason why i purchased this item was because it was one of the largest lighted plaques out there. Be aware that if you connect it to your doorbell power, which is AC, the light will have a slight flicker to them. I did not like that, so I connected it to a separate 12 DC power supply. Having done this I realized that the two lights were wired in series. So I reconfigured the wiring so that they would be in parallel. The LED lights are much brighter than the incandescent bulbs. Also, the backing does not really stay clipped on the cover, so i had to put two small screws on either side to hold it together. So if your not willing or able to tinker with this product a bit , I would say don't purchase it.

Not For Sale!...
This address plaque is a defective product, I purchased three, and one after another.. in order to replace the lemon which was originally sent to me. It seems the circuit board inside is flawed, lights will not work, or just one will sporadically flicker. All three explains it all, do not waste your money and or time.. I hope this helps any unknowing consumer.
NOTE: In addition no power supply is given, one must purchase a 14-18 v low voltage system.

I finally decided to put a house number up on our new home and looked around for a good product, I had a solar lit one at an old address but the short Canadian winter days don't offer much ability to charge the batteries and the batteries don't last long with the extreme heat/cold.
There are a few out there but the price range is quite high. I found this one and was surprised at the low cost. In this case, the price reflects the lower quality (lower grade plastic) but it does the job and I really like the backlit feature and so far its unique in our neighborhood. Not sure how it will stand up to weather and fading but time will tell.
The LED lights are quite white, but certainly very visible at night. I am considering switching to the incandescent as they do give off a warmer yellower light - not quite as bright and perhaps not as efficient but they are low voltage so don't think the electrical cost would be much higher.
I drilled a hole and ran the wiring into the garage and am thinking about putting them on an old timer so that it shuts off in the morning and comes on in the evening. Not much point having it lit all day, although as mentioned it shouldn't take much power anyway - now if only I could find that old timer I have someplace!

only 2 of each digit
The description claims there are 3 of each digit. There are in fact only 2 of each. I had to send mine back. Other than that it looks fine.
