Simply ensure that your DokLite® and its floor is sealed firmly to the piling to prevent any unwanted water intrusion.

Yes. Changing the battery is a simple task that can be done on any of our DokLites.
How Do I Know What Size DokLites To Buy?
To ensure you purchase the correct size DokLite®, you will need to measure the diameter of your dock pilings. Remember, no piling is perfectly round! The list below will help you determine which size to get:
8 Inch DokLites
Fit 6 to 8 inch pilings
9 inch DokLites
Fit 7 to 9 inch pilings
10 inch DokLites
Fit 8 to 10 inch pilings
When in doubt, size up!
DokLites can hang over the sides of the piling and do not have to fit tight in order to be sealed. The floor included with the DokLite®, ensures a seal when properly installed.
How Long Does The Battery Last?
The DokLite® utilizes the best available technology in our batteries. Polymer Lithium batteries of this caliber have exceeded a 7 year life span.
How Long Will DokLites Last?
Our DokLites are designed to last you for many years. Our goal is to have your dock illuminated as long as it is still standing. If you ever believe your DokLite® needs any replacement parts, or service, simply give us a call at 941-244-2306 and we will be happy to help you. Even if your DokLite® is out of warranty, we can still perform repairs on it!
How Long Will DokLites Stay Lit?
The DokLite® has a battery that will keep it illuminated for up to 24 hours on a full charge. However, the DokLites come equipped with a photo sensor that automatically turns it on at dusk and off at dawn.
How Many Colors Are Available?
Our DokLites currently come in two colors. You can choose between Blue or White LEDs, depending on your personal preference. Both colors are the same level of brightness, so it just comes down which color you like best!
What Size DokLites Do I Need?
The size of the DokLite® you will need depends on the size of your dock pilings. Simply measure the diameter of your piling to determine the DokLite® size you will need. If the diameter of your piling is between whole inches (8.5 inches, 9.5 inches, etc.) you must choose the larger size DokLite®. For example, if your piling has a diamter of 8.5 inches, a 9 inch DokLite® will fit your piling perfectly.
Where Are DokLites Made?
All products from DokLite® are made in the USA. They are assembled and shipped from our manufacturing facility in Englewood, Florida.
Will DokLites Work On Covered Docks?
Yes! DokLites are able to recharge under indirect light. If part of your dock has a canopy and is covered, they will still work perfectly!
Will My DokLites Turn On Automatically?
Yes. Every DokLite® contains a powerful photo-sensor. It will control your DokLite® once it is installed. Each DokLite® will turn on at dusk and off at dawn.
