LED Lighting

I'm looking to replace interior lights on a 411 Beneteau with led. Anyone know of a source for led lights around 2 inchs besides West Marine ?

Re: Led lighting

We replaced all our interior lights and most of our exterior lights with sensibulbs. To us they were the brightest of the LED's. We are really happy with our choice.

Re: LED Lighting

I got a bunch of LED lamps from Rona for $10 a piece. Modified the 2 in. holder and installed. There are 5 in the cabin on a dimmer. works great. Also modified some of the cheaper RV 2 lamp type fixtures for the washroom. I am planning to convert all interior lighting including the engine room with these.

Re: LED Lighting

We got ours from IMTRA. Only had them in a couple of weeks and so far, so good. Working on a dimmer also.
Nice to be able to turn on lights and not feel guilty.

Re: LED Lighting

An friend in my marina as has set up a company that specializes in LED lighting. He seems to know what he is talking about and claims to sell a good product (I haven't bought yet but was going to give him a try this year).

Re: LED Lighting

Try the online site for Fisheries Supply in Seattle. Much better site for anything marine.

Hi Lancerbye. I've read a couple of posts about Rona lights, but I'm not sure how that works... are you using 110v lights modified somehow for 12v?

I've got some old cabin fixtures with household-style screw-in bases and shades that clip right onto the incandescent lights. Does anyone know of any round screw-in LED bulbs for 12v? ...or would the ones sold for household use (presumably 110v) work on 12v? I kind of doubt it...

Thanks...
Perry.

The lamps I got were 12v. lamps with the two pin base. They also carry the same type for 110v. I wouldn't want to modify a 110v. fixture base the way I did these.

Re: LED Lighting

Old thread, I know. If it is a screw base for a 12v bulb on board, I can use a screw base led for 12v without modification, yes?

Yes, and if the led bulb doesn't work the first time, just swap the leads for the power as they've been backwards for years and the incandescent lamp didn't care.
