Final Thoughts

I really like the combination of tripod and magnet mount options when I'm using the Lind Equipment Beacon Infinity Floodlight. I'd like to see Lind add floor stands to the tripod packages, though. If you're working in an area that a tripod isn't reasonable and you don't have a ferrous surface to stick it on, you'd still have a stable platform to work with.

Lind Equipment Beacon Infinity Floodlight Review


Lind Equipment Beacon Infinity Floodlight Lights Up the Site with High Versatility

We got our hands on the Lind Equipment Beacon Infinity floodlight dual-light tripod set. With a build quality similar to what we see from ProBuilt’s Prolight XLE series, I put it to use lighting up a variety of indoor and outdoor projects.

Pros

  • 5400 lumens output replaces halogens up to 500W
  • Versatile design offers a lot of options to light your job
  • Neutral light color (5000K)
  • LEDs are rated for 50,000 hours
  • IP65 rating
  • Each light only draws 40 watts

Cons

  • More plastic used in the light frame than competitors

Recommendation

This light is an easy replacement for halogens and draws a lot less power while still providing a ton of light. Buy it if you’re looking for a halogen replacement as either a standalone package or a tripod package. Pass if the initial cost is too much higher than halogens. Just try not to think about it every time you replace one of your broken ones.

How Much Light Does the Lind Equipment Beacon Infinity Floodlight Put Out?

Each Beacon Infinity floodlight produces 5400 lumens. We have the dual-tripod set, so that’s just shy of 11,000 lumens together.

Lind sticks with the popular 5000K color temperature for these lights. It’s a nice, fairly neutral color that doesn’t drastically change the color of what it’s lighting up. To my eyes, it looks like it leans a little to the yellow side of the spectrum, but it’s not very noticeable.

If you’re looking at these as halogen replacements, each one puts out about as much light as something in the 400W – 500W range.

What’s Unique About the Design?

There are a few great things about Lind’s design here. On the base light, it can pivot almost all the way around in its housing. It would be able to go 360º except the cord gets in the way.

When you attach it to either the tripod or the magnetic mount, it clicks in place instead of screwing it down with threads or clamping it. To release the light, just pinch the two black points near the connection and take it off.

I assume this works the same way on the floor stand, but our model didn’t come with one.

Reading through the spoiler I just let out, there are three basic ways to work with the Lind Beacon Infinity. If you go with the most basic set, there’s a 3-arm floor stand and a magnet mount.

The magnet mounts are strong enough to hold the light in any orientation. If you try to mount it sideways on some painted surfaces, it will drift around, though.

The tripod is pretty standard but well-built. You can mount a single light vertically or two lights horizontally, depending on which set you get.

Is There Anything Else I Should Know?

The knobs for tightening down the clamps are plastic, so there’s some risk that you’ll need to replace them down the road. They’re not overly thin or brittle, but we’re talking about jobsite lighting that will receive varying levels of respect from the Pros that use them.

The two main tripod knobs have a good size, but the one for the top is on the small side. It’s a little challenging to operate with gloves on. On the plus side, there are two clips to help manage your cords as they drop down from the tripod.

The clamp for the legs feels like it won’t get tight enough to hold the tripod at varying levels. Just let the legs out to their most stable positions and the support arms take over. Once you’re there, the clamp holds great. This doesn’t give you much height adjustment from the legs themselves, but there’s plenty available in the telescoping portion of the tripod.

The lights have an IP65 rating, so they’re dustproof and can handle most any rain or snow that rolls through without a problem.

 

How Much Does it Cost?

There are three different package options you can get with the Lind Beacon Infinity.

Single Light and Floor Stand Package | LE971LED-FSM

  • One Beacon Infinity light
  • Floor stand
  • Magnet mount attachment
  • $152.75 (regular price: $164.50)

Single Light Tripod Package

  • One Beacon Infinity light
  • Tripod
  • Magnet mount attachment
  • $165.75 (regular price: $178.50)

Dual Light Tripod Package

  • Two Beacon Infinity lights
  • Tripod
  • Two magnet mount attachments
  • $312.00 (regular price: $336.00)

Lind’s build reminds me of Southwire’s Prolight XLE series LED area lights, so that’s where I’m pulling my cost comparison. The lights in Southwire’s series have more power (6500 lumens vs 5400) and the same IP rating. Another big difference is that Lind uses plastic for the light frame and Southwire sticks with metal.

Southwire’s single light with a floor stand saves you a few dollars ($149.99 sale price, normally $197.04), but it goes up quickly from there. If you want the magnet mount, you’re up to $219.29 each and the single light tripod set is $234.78.

Moving to the dual light tripod setup, you’re looking at $472.38.

If you’re willing to trade-off 1100 lumens on each light and work with a bit more plastic, Lind’s price is pretty attractive.
