What a power saver !!!


Thought I'd share this with you. With lamp technology improving efficiency, I recently bought a set of these. It's an LED bulb but not as you've seen them before. We're used to the little glass ball-type LED lights - I guess that was to magnify the intensity of the tiny light. These new ones mad for boats are actually small yellow squares. (click on image to see larger pic - then back arrow to return). Whenever we've been cruising in poor light the navigation lights (four of them) tend to draw a lot of juice (85 watts actually). I've just replaced them with these new LED's and now they only draw 16 1/2 watts. Incredible saving of power and they're guaranteed to last for - wait for it - 25,000 hours. Previously, the cost has been prohibitive. The predecessor to these (with the little round glass balls) cost £40 EACH so I hesitated. These only cost £13.95 each so for just over fifty quid it's a good investment.
