Most of my bulbs came from LED Wholsalers and were a lot more reasonable than many of the bulbs advertised as "marine". The marine ones may be better, but for the relatively small outlay I'm willing to experiment with the cheaper ones. It takes a little digging to find the right bulb for each purpose, but that's half the fun.
The three dome lights have been modified to accept festoon LED bulbs.
The two little bulkhead lights in the main cabin were moved to the galley, one on each side, and attached to the top face of the cabinets. They were already festoon holders so conversion was a snap.
The current draw is minimal, and it's hard to get used to turning on all the cabin lights without worrying about draining the battery! One nice thing is that most LED's are available in warm white colours, giving the cabin a cozy glow, while still being bright enough for reading.
Good to read that you have also seen "the light" and changed to LED lighting! LED Lights are also very efficient, thus eco-friendly. So you're not doing yourself, but also the environment a pleasure. Thanks for sharing this!ReplyDelete
