VOLT® Fat Boy

VOLT's® Fat Boy Spotlight is easily the most affordable all-brass fixture in low voltage outdoor lighting. Sheet brass body, cast brass knuckle, and solid brass screws and knobs.

Includes 360º rotatable shroud, PVC Hammer™ Stake (brass surface mount base shown in picture is an optional accessory). Uses Halogen or LED MR-16 lamps rated up to 50w. Uses premium grade internal components: Silicone sealed at lead wire exit, internal heat reflector, pre-greased ceramic socket for longevity and convex lens for shedding water.

Perfect for any uplighting application. The Fat Boy Spotlight is a great solution for any budget without sacrificing pro-grade quality.

Features & Benefits:

  • Sheet brass construction
  • Pre-aged brass finish. There is no powder coating, paint or finish to wear off or peel—just the natural patina beauty of brass that does not corrode.
  • Solid brass or stainless steel components.
  • 360º rotatable glare guard
  • The body is machine threaded and screws tight onto an O-ring for the ultimate moisture tight design.
  • Choose from 4' standard or 25' hub ready 16G, SPT-2 premium tinned copper lead wire.
  • The lens is convex so water does not puddle on the lens which reduces hard water build-up and water intrusion.
  • Ceramic high temperature socket.
  • Socket and machine thread body are pre-greased for smooth operation and moisture protection.
  • Silicone plug where lead wires exit fixture. Prevents ground moisture and insects from entering fixture through the stem.
  • Complete water shedding and drainage off convex lens.
  • Low voltage, 12 volts.
  • Requires VOLT's® Low Voltage Transformer (Sold Separately, click HERE to view)
  • UL & cUL Listed
  • Lifetime Warranty.

Orientation Note: Use only for up-lighting. For downward-facing applications, please use VOLT downlights.

    What is the best bulb size to use for up lighting of mid size tree's, I have not used LED lights before.

      A:

      We usually recommend 20-30 watt halogen equivalent bulbs, this way as the tree grows the light will still be sufficient. This is a retro-fit fixture so you can change bulbs as the tree gets larger.

I will buy plenty more.

Great fixture for the money. I used an MR 16 5w 2700K 38° angle for up lighting on the house wall. Convex lense is great so water or leaves fall off.

These are a total pain. The bulbs are very hard to install. Every time the yard maintenance crew comes, they knock the bulbs out and I have to go around and put them all back in again. My husband cannot do it because his fingers are too big. There is no room inside the case to hold the bulb while installing it: in other words, 2 fingers and a bulb width do not fit in the case. They easily dislodge upon being bumped. I would never purchase these again.

Comments about VOLT® Fat Boy Brass Spotlight | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

Great lights. I have about 80 volt lights. 4 different varieties . I keep buying more. Why 3 stars? The finish doesn't hold up. It's not posible to restore to the original finish. You must sand down to the original brass casting or stamping. Then coat with an exterior clear coat. Nice looking but doesn't match the original finish. The most recent lamps I clear coat before initial installation.
I will buy more in the future.

Great product with a couple of minor flaws.

Comments about VOLT® Fat Boy Brass Spotlight | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

I purchased 29 of these fixtures to provide up light on 14 palm trees and one to light the entry to the house. I purchased them during their 50% off sale.At half price it cost about $25 a light for an all brass fixture with a lifetime guaranty. If you don't think that's an incredible deal then see what $25 will purchase at a big box store.

I also purchased two of the Top Dog spotlights which unveiled two minor problems I found with the Fat Boys. The Fat Boys open at the top of the fixture making it difficult to get your fingers around the lamp to guide it into place. The Top Dogs disconnect near the base of the fixture; making it easy to install the lamp. The second problem is that the fixtures I've received have all been shipped with the knuckle turned 90 degrees. When I straighten the fixture it feels as though the wire is being stretched. The Top Dog adjusts much more
smoothly.

These are all minor complaints. Would I buy them again? For $5.00 more I would purchase the Top Dog with neither of those issues. But with a 50% discount it's a no brainer. I'd purchase them again in a heartbeat.

On a side note, between their videos and articles and especially their superlative 7 day customer support I can highly recommend Volt Lighting and would use the Fat Boys again in a heartbeat..

Comments about VOLT® Fat Boy Brass Spotlight | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

I'd give it a 5. I grabbed a couple of wiring accessories they are fantastic. The fixtures are high quality but the wire gauge is a little thin. There may be a good reason but I am replacing old fixtures from a previous owner and they used thicker wire, that is my only point if reference. All in all the lighting is better than the big box for the same cash and the vids are really well done.

We used these Fat boys to light up the front wall to our development. They look amazing and extremely easy to install. Great product and extremely well constructed. You can tell these are not from your local hardware store. Spend a little extra and get a light that will last a lifetime.

Comments about VOLT® Fat Boy Brass Spotlight | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

I ordered these are part of a larger project that I'm working on. I knew that these lights were pricier than some of the lights you see at the big box stores so this isn't about price. When I got the package I can see why these lights were more expensive. They are built like tanks! The stakes are thick plastic that could probably take some abuse before they would break. Great product. I will buy again!

Purchased from this company before, so I know the quality of their products is good, Just happened to see an email that these were on sale (they were a pretty good deal at the regular price), and they were just what I needed, so I bought a bunch...couldn't be happier with my purchase. And they were at my front door in two days!

Very well made. Lighter made than older and more expensive brass spotlights but look very nice. The LED is a bit tricky to install, just need a bit of patience.

I have 12 of these fixtures throughout the property. They are easy to install, very sturdy, and easy to adjust the position.
Just as important are the installation videos which made installation that much easier. Finally, customer service has been wonderful in this day of getting voice mail or to be directed to a web site!
Thanks, Volt!!

Awesome product. I have wanted spotlights in our landscaping for years but needed to first find the right electrician. Did that and he recommended Volt. Very pleased. Products were competitively-priced and arrived in great shape an on time. First experience with VOLT and it was very positive.

    I put these in 4 years ago, and they look like the day I got them. They are beautifully and heavily built - just like Volt says. It sounds silly, but I even smile when replacing a bulb because of the feel of quality in my hands :). Best of all - they do not leak!
