The grill light reviews I did will shed some light on the best BBQ outdoor grill lights I could find.
Since LED is the future, I focused on these and also on waterproof grill lights in these reviews.
We use a lot of gadgets for our grills but this is one I highly recommend adding to your arsenal.
Answers I tried to find for grill lights
- How easy to use
- The amount of light they give.
- Battery life
- Extra features like auto turn off
Like always I try to find the top-rated products and that is what I do with the grill light also.
I have tried to find the top-rated and best BBQ lights for you with the highest-selling numbers and highest-rated numbers. Some are a clip-on type and others are made for handle mount. A flexible light is also an option I looked at.

Weber 7516 Grill Out Handle Light review
Led BBQ grill light that according to the manufacturer will last over 10.000 hours and the batteries should last up to 29 hours. Head and moist resistant and made from glass-reinforced nylon
Customer review of the Weber 7516
“I had one of these on my beloved Genesis Silver B. When I gave the grill a new home to upgrade to a Genesis S-320, I ordered this the same day.
If you’re grilling after dark, this light is just flat out awesome. It’s just bright enough to cover your grilling area, without attracting every bug in the neighborhood. And because the lights are LED’s with a gravity switch, you’re never burning through batteries.
In fact, I never used the power switch on my old one, and the three AAA batteries kept the thing going strong for at least a year….(read more: by clicking here)”
My opinion about the Weber 7516 grill handle light
Fits snug on the handle and although some people mentioned it turns not of when you shut the lid and the light flickered I found the answers to those Weber grill light, not working problems.
The battery compartment of most of the Weber grill-out handle light comes with a lid that had to be turned to lock it. If you do not lock it right the batteries don’t make good contact and the light will flicker or not come on at all.
The Weber grill handle light should not turn off when you close the lid. It is supposed to dim and stay on so you can find the lid handle easier in the dark.
There are however people who mentioned that the Weber grill light won’t do that and I have not found a good explanation yet.
Just remember that this Weber genesis grill light can be used on other grills than a Weber, but it must have a round handle on your grill. The high rating justifies that some people call this the best grill light for the Weber Genesis grill.
Tip:Put a little silicone kit on the battery o-ring to keep it even better sealed
When I read about a product and from the over 540 ratings more than 450 give it 3,4 and 5-star rating I think I can say that this is a pretty good product. A grill light Weber is what people look for online and I hope they find this page.
One owner called this the best Weber genesis grill light.

Zeust Barbecue Grill light
This is also called Zeust Sirius 2.0 barbecue grill light. It comes with 10 bright LED lights and the adjustable, made of zinc alloy, clamp makes it easy to install on your grill handle round, oval, or square with no problem as long as the diameter is not more than 1.45 inch.
Customer review of the Zeus grill light
“I live in an area where grilling is possible almost year-round. The only trouble is I have had trouble seeing what I’m doing when darkness falls before time to cook dinner. This light is SO bright! It actually has two settings, but even the less-bright one is a big help to see the color of the meat I’m grilling.
It’s sturdy, too. The first time I attached it to my grill handle and then let the top down, I hadn’t tightened the fastener enough, and the light fell to my concrete patio. I was sure I had broken it, but no, it worked fine!….(read more: here)”
My opinion about the Zeust grill handle light
Although I was not able to find a lot of reviews the ones I found were all 4 and 5 stars.
One of the most mentioned positive things and in my opinion, the most important thing is that this grill light is very bright and provides a lot of light.
The clamp was also one of the things mentioned as very easy to use and pretty sturdy.
The 3 included AA batteries seem to hold on for about 18 hours and with the option that turns of the light automatically, you can even use it up to 50 hours I read.
I rated this Zeus grill light with 4.8 stars but was actually thinking about giving it a 4.9-star rating. The reason I did not do that is the fact that I could not find a lot of information to justify that.

Fulcrum 20019-301 6 LED review
The Fulcrum 20019-301 6 LED with multiflex and clip-on light gives the same amount of light as a 60 Watt bulb with the 6 LEDs.
Unfortunately, the 3 AAA batteries are not included in the package and have to be bought separately.
Warning: This light is not waterproof.
Customer review of the Fulcrum grill light
“I think the previous reviewer thought this was a book light…it’s actually a rugged, 6 LED clamp-on BBQ light that illuminates the grill on the darkest of nights! It can also double as a work light in the garage, a desk lamp in the office – even a great light to take camping and clamp-onto the picnic table for a late-night of playing cards. A totally flexible neck allows the light to shine anywhere. You won’t be disappointed with the versatility and brightness of this product! …(read more: here)”
My opinion about the Fulcrum 20019-306
The fulcrum lights are not only good for a grill or barbecue but also can be used inside or on a workbench.
The part you have to watch is that it is not waterproof so it can not be used outside on the grill when it rains.
It got some great ratings when it comes to the amount of light it gives. It really seems that it gives just as much light as a 60 Watts light bulb.
The clamp works well on a horizontal surface but tends to slide a little when you clamp it on a vertical surface. One user advised using a piece of cloth between them to improve the grip.
The adjustable metal neck makes it very easy to use.
If you have a side table on your grill this is the best place to attach it in my opinion.
A 4.2-star rating overall is in my opinion the right rating since this is a light you can use in many places. Not being waterproof is however not too good for a grill light.

#1 Barbecue Grill Light with 10 led – Kuisiware grill light review
The brand name is Kuisiware and to be honest, I had never heard of it.
But with a 4.8-star rating from almost 150 users, I had to add this Kuisiware grill light to our top 5 grill lights
It is the number one seller on Amazon in the commercial street and in the lighting category.
Customer review of the Kuisiware grill light
“This light appears to be quite handy -not only for its intended use but for use anywhere you need a light and need two hands to accomplish a task -(for example, to work under the hood of my car).
The clamp is lined with rubber so as not to mar the finish of whatever it is fastened to and provides a no-slip grip. The switch was a pleasant surprise. It is a touch-sensitive switch -just tap it lightly with your finger and it operates on/off.
The design looks like some thought went into it. One nice thing that the designer included as an extra, in my view, is the little ribbon used to pull the batteries out -a nice touch. Overall it is a nice design and not just the bare minimum that one might see on a cheaper model of some sort.
The light has a flood pattern rather than a spot pattern -which is good to illuminate the workspace. I really like the LED technology. The light emitted is white, bright and uses little power, meaning the batteries last a long time….(read more: here)”
My opinion about the Kuisiware barbeque grill light
With an average of 4.8 stars, it was hard to find some cons of this grill light, but I found some.
One reviewer mentioned it did not work and had to send it back. That is not too bad for 1 out of 150.
Another one found out you can get it not too hot. The lens will start to melt. good tip, but still not a negative point since I think most grill lights will melt when they get too hot.
The third point was that it is not waterproof and has to be taken off or kept covered.
The manufacturer answered this question and stated that it is better to keep and store it in a dry place, but it should withstand a little rain. Although they tested it under a shower for 5 minutes and it kept working.
Overall I think I can recommend this grill light as one of the best buys. The customer service seems to be great and supports their product with fast responses.
The touch on/off button was according to many people a big plus compared to a push button.

The Authentic Grilluminator review
Water-resistant but not weatherproof is what we read for the grilluminator grill light, so take it off if you get some bad weather, but in most situations, you can leave it on.
Comes with 10 led lights and a fit easy clamp mount. Very adjustable top lights up the entire grill.
Well, this is enough sales talk from the manufacturer. Let’s do some research and review. But with a 4.7 rating, it must be pretty good
Customer review of the Grilluminator
“I got this for my son-in-law for his birthday, and he has confirmed (through my daughter, who holds the official bulls*** meter) that he really likes this product. He’s very into grilling, and at this time of year, he just couldn’t see what was on the grill previously. I can’t describe how happy I am that the product actually worked as expected….(read more: here)”
My opinion about the Grilluminator
With a rating of 4.7 there can not be too much wrong with this bbq light and to be honest, I could only find complaints about it not being waterproof and the clamp got some mentions for not being too strong.
The amount of light is good and there were some people mentioning that the on-off switch was a little too sensitive.
With over 140 reviews and a 4.7 this can be called a good product but just keep it out of the rain.

Man Law bbq grill light review
The Man Law comes with 12 led lights and an adjustable screw clamp.
The arm of this flexible BBQ light can be extended to 23 inches.
This is the first light that claims to be weather resistant and totally waterproof and can stay out in the rain.
The aluminum gives it extra protection against all weather.
Customer review of the Man Law
“I love this bbq grill light, considering purchasing a 2nd one. I do a lot of bbq smoking and have a table set up right next to the smoker, so it’s very convenient to have this grill light right there since ive been too lazy to put a spotlight off the back of my house. I’ve used this light at 3 different grills, didn’t have any issues attaching the clamp or using the magnets for the matter at any of the grills. The leds are very bright, the magnets are strong, and the overall construction of this light is pretty solid….(read more: here)”
My opinion about the man law BBQ grill light
This is the only light in our reviews that is really weatherproof and I found out that many people state that this is true. There are also a few that mentioned water runs down the neck into the battery compartment so I advise you to take this with a grain of salt. Sealing the bottom with some silicone did the job for one person.
the lower ratings claim that there is not enough light coming from it. Send it back is always our advice. There is no 100% product. There is always the occasional lemon.
Overall this seems to be a pretty good light although I have seen a few comments that the light is too concentrated in a small area and not spread too much.
The clamp in combination with the magnet works great on a metal surface, but just the clamp seems to be a little weak.
Overall this grill light is in our top 5 for a good reason although it only received a 4.2 rating because it is not weather resistant as claimed.

Light it by Fulcrum 6 LED BBQ grill light review
I found this Fulcrum 20019-301 LED Grill light and was impressed with the number of reviews I found and decided to take a little bit better look at it.
What I like is that it is LED and this will save on battery use and most of the time the amount of light is very well.
The flexible neck is about 19.5 inches long and this is long enough to light your grill area, and the light beam seems to be very wide and illuminates the whole grill.
Although weatherproof and okay for outside use it is not a waterproof grill light and is not meant to stay out in the rain.
This lamp can also be used as a light for a workbench or inside as a hobby light or even reading light.
After reading a ton of customer reviews I think I can recommend this grill light as a good buy.

Grill Utensils with build in light
Maybe it is easier to use a grilling utensil with a built-in flashlight?
Well, if you only grill occasionally after dark this might be a solution for you. the Grill light company has some nice options available.
Better Grills Rating: 4.8
I had the pleasure of testing them for you and you can have a look at my grill light spatula review here and see what other products I received from them to test.
To be honest I like the quality and the amount of light they give on my grill.
More about BBQ grill lights
When I started these reviews of barbecue outdoor grill lights I found that there is no such thing as the best grill light for every situation.
Some of the grills are better equipped for a clip-on grill light on the handle and some are better to be sued with a fixed handle mount type.
I read about people who love their Flexible light and others who will never use anything else than a cordless one. Magnetic grill lights are also an option.
It is just the case to find the one that fits your situation and grill the best. That is why I did not call this the best grill light review although I think I succeeded in finding some great grill lights that people like most.
Although some of the best outdoor BBQ lights have models that are waterproof I still think it is best to keep them out of the rain to extend their life.
The BBQ light fixtures need to be pretty sturdy and that is why the gas grill lights with LED lights versions are recommended over other ones.
I might add more outdoor grill light reviews here when I find more highly rated ones. Overall a gas grill with led lights can help you grill for more hours.
if you have any BBQ lights you like to recommend let us know in the comments below.
Most of the grill lights are made in a way that they will fit most outdoor grills I reviewed and also a great deal of the charcoal and portable propane gas grills we reviewed. Make sure to check the measurements of the handle before you order one.
