Zeust Sirius 2.0 Barbecue Grill Light Review*
When you are tailgating at the stadium lot in the O-Dark-Early morning hours or staying for the night games’ after party, having a good light source for grilling is essential. We decided to try out a nifty little light made by Zeust, to see how it would perform and share our findings with you.
We haven’t seen these available in our local stores, but they can be found online at Zeust.com and other online retailers.

Swivels 180 degrees horizontally and vertically for full coverage of your grill’s surface.
What comes in the package?
Our grill light arrived via mail in good shape and were pleased to find that it came nicely packaged with the user manual, they even included batteries and a little bitty screwdriver to open the battery cover. The grill light requires three AA batteries to power.
The package also contained a 101 grilling tip, tricks and techniques from grilling experts which we thought was a nice touch.
After removing the light and installing the batteries we noticed how nicely the bracket worked. The arm is fully adjustable and will pretty much stay where you are pointing it without having to tighten down any additional screws or anything. Niffy! A single thumb screw is used to attach the arm to the grill handle at the location you desire. So very quick removal if need be.
Does it do what it says it does?
Here is what Zeust says about it’s product:
Ultra Bright thanks to its 10 super bright LED lights with a luminous flux of 105 lumens. It will illuminate your grill’s entire surface, making this the perfect gift for any grill master.
Durable & Heat Resistant. These barbecue lights will last a long time. Can definitely combat rain and extreme heat up to 356°F. Made out of durable Nylon Glass Fiber and zinc alloy (for the clamp),
Easy to Attach & Adjust. The adjustable screw clamp allows you to attach it to any gas grill or char-broil grill handle (max diam/width: 1.45″ (3.7cm)).
Energy Efficient. The regular power button w/ auto off feature saves you money in the long run. The 3 AA batteries (included) provide up to 18 hours of power. This grilling tool might be one of the best BBQ grill accessories on the market.
Ultra Versatile. You can use it as a grilling light for any gas, charcoal, or electric grill. Or as a flashlight for camping, reading, biking, in the garage, or any dark place around your home.
Is all that true? Yes.
We very much liked the even glow of the lights across the grill. The unit feels solid and well made. I don’t think i personally would leave it outside for long lengths of time, but for a few hours of tailgating it is fantastic and WATERPROOF! Which means if you spill beer or bbq sauce on it….which i know would never happen amirite? 😉 just wipe it off and you are still good to go.
The light itself has two brightness settings formed from 10 individual LED bulbs inside the unit and gives off a nice even illumination when your grill cover is in the upright position…. which, as you know, is exactly what you want it to do. Using LEDs instead of standard bulbs means that the batteries will last a lot longer than a lot of other grill lights. Just remember to pack it away in such a way as to not bump the switch back on.
It would be nice if the attaching bracket was a bit longer to widen the options of where we can attach it so we could aim the light to cover our side tables as well… but that’s just us being picky. (they actually do sell a different light called the Capella*, which that does just that)
The Sirius 2.0 BBQ grill light does what it is designed to do, and that is to flood your grill surface with light, and for most barbecue grills, this grilling light it will work fantastic for you.
Over all we really like this product!
Simple, sturdy and does what it says. We expect it will last for years. It does come with a 2 year warranty and a 60 day money back 100% satisfaction guarantee. Judging from the responses we have seen, the company is very easy to work with should you run into an issue.
