Rent Wireless Battery Powered uplights

The perfect wireless uplights for events and parties because they are the:

  • easiest uplights to use, 
  • most portable,
  • brightest, and 
  • have the longest lasting battery life.

Lights arrive pre-charged, tested and ready to go out of the box. With 20+ hours of battery life, you will have no problem keeping your event lit up from beginning to end.

The wireless remote control puts the entire rainbow of colors in the palm of your hand. Touch the rainbow wheel on the color you want and all the light units within 150ft will instantly change to the color you chose.

Unlock the visual potential of your indoor and outdoor spaces, unrestricted by power outlets, and put lights anywhere, including:

  • under tables
  • around columns
  • uplighting trees 
  • lights in landscaping
  • light up signage
  • washes of light on walls 
  • light up decorations
  • light up boat parties
  • tradeshow displays

Push a button for automatic light shows to immediately pick up the energy at your party, or dim up and dim down the lighting at the touch of a button.

These 3lb brick-sized lighting units are physically low profile (4in x 5in x 6in), blending into the room so your guests see the beautiful washes of color they put out and not bulky light fixtures.

Uplighting Questions

How many uplights do I need?

Uplights are placed 5ft, 10ft, or 15ft apart along a wall. Closer spacing of the uplights results in more of a wash effect while spacing the lights further apart creates more of a pop of color or a spotlight effect on the wall. Include more lights for unique features like columns, bump outs, framing focal points in the room.

Last minute uplight rental?

We can accommodate most last minute rentals place by 3pm EST for delivery as soon as 8:00am the next day anywhere in the continental US and Canada. 

What if I have trouble with setup?

Rental uplights are delivered at least 2 business days before your event. As soon as you receive the lights, open the box and test the lights out. If there are any problems or issues with setup we can be reached 24/7 to help out and troubleshoot. Our visual instruction guide and videos are there to help make it easy as possible right out of the box. 

Am I dealing with real people? 

We are real people who have spent our lives in the event industry who:

  • review your order
  • ask followup questions
  • triple check your shipping address

We are genuinely invested in making sure you can do this and have the knowledge and tools to make your event look amazing. 

How easy is setup for the wireless uplights?

As simple as we could design it! You can do this! Each light has one button on it, an on/off switch. The remote is designed to have all the features you'd need for an event. Color selection, dim up / dim down, auto programs to fade through, strobe, and create more dynamic lights shows. We left out all the programming so that anyone can use these lights without any knowledge whatsoever of having lit anything else before. Set the lights where you want to add ambiance, turn them on, that's it.

Where are your uplights manufactured?

All of our wireless uplights are manufactured in the USA. Every rental supports American jobs, American manufacturing and your local community.

Order, pay, sign online and tell us when and where you need the lighting. 

Cheap wireless uplighting?

Wireless uplights are not created equal. Cheap wireless uplighting means that your lights will not come tested, pre-charged, or ready to go. It will also mean that the battery life will likely not last the entire event. Cheap wireless uplighting rentals are just that, you get what you pay for. Our lights are designed by us for events to last a long time.

What are uplights?

Uplights are lights placed on the ground aimed up against a surface like a wall, backdrop or column providing a wash of light. Uplighting improves the lighting in a space by adding additional brightness and can add color or dynamic lighting effects if hooked up to a lighting controller.

What cities can I rent uplights in?

Rent uplights in any city in the continental United States! Cities like:

Why not rent uplights locally?

Lots of reasons!

You likely won't be able to get exactly the right type of lights for your event.

You'll need to spend time and money driving to the local rental facility, finding someone to help you, tracking down if they have the lights available (and if they are working). Getting you signed in as a customer, explaining the rental process, trying to upsell you a chocolate fountain, getting your drivers license, signing the contract sight unseen, taking a blood sample...

You'll need to pick up the lights the day before or same day to avoid extra charges. They usually require a security deposit or damage waiver, you'll also have to pay local sales tax.

Most local uplight rentals can't troubleshoot the rental (if you can get anyone on the phone at all on a weekend) with you in case something happens because most rental places don't specialize in just lighting.

Try the lights out, find out one is broken, drive back to the rental place, find out they aren't open, call the emergency number, fight with the owner, drive home with a broken light and less time to actually get your event together.

You'll have to spend your time and money to return the rental back to the rental place wherever it is the next business day when they are open, wait to find someone to check you in, hopefully get your security deposit back, fill out a survey.

That's just not worth it.
