Black Oak LED POD lights or a single-row LED back up light bar make driving in reverse safer with a full, broad field of illumination.

Scene and Diffuse Lighting Options


Unlike forward driving lights, an LED reverse light requires a broader and/or diffuse illumination field to avoid overpowering pedestrians or drivers behind you. Black Oak LED POD and Scene lights offer these options with 120-degree broad beam optics.

The Black Oak 2-inch Diffused LED light features flood lighting with a diffuse lens that throws a night-busting but soft beam rearward using four top-quality 10W Cree XM-L2 LEDs. Its low profile accommodates above- or below-bumper mounting. Technically similar, Black Oak's Flush Mount POD light mounts on any flat surface. Equip it with 5W Osram or 10W Cree LEDs to customize your illumination requirement.

Black Oak's 2-inch Scene POD is an ideal scene light. It has four center-mounted Cree 10W LEDs plus specialized 120-degree scene optics to light up a wide area for work or play.


5W vs 10W LEDs

Unlike cheap, imported LED lights, Black Oak selects only top-bin Osram or Cree LEDs for their products. Their 5W and 10W LEDs feature high-efficiency, 50,000-hour lifespans backed up with quality driver circuits and oversized, integrated heat sinks.


Popular Uses for Flush-mount PODs, Single-row PODs and Cube PODs

Besides making an excellent LED reverse light, Black Oak PODs find many uses:

  • Swivel-mounted PODs direct light wherever you need it
  • Single-row and cube PODs make excellent portable lights for work or camp sites
  • The 2-inch amber LED POD is a superb fog light
  • Boat owners use PODs for navigational and deck lighting

Features Setting Black Oak LED PODs Apart from the Competition

All products offer a 30-day cash-back guarantee and a limited lifetime warranty and come with drastically lower prices than leading U.S. manufacturers.
