I picked up some at Sailors Exchange in St, Augustine. They carry new, used and discontinued parts and pieces. These lights are not as powerful as the new lights that are now on the market.

Quality

BE CAREFUL! In LED's, we're finding out that cheap = cheap. We've spent the last year researching, acquiring, accumulating, re-wiring, re-fitting, and replacing several LED's.

Our absolute favorite choice for inside is Sensibulb (SCADTechnologies, Sensibulb LED) the light is a very bright, clear white...good enough to read by (plus my wife has very serious vision problems and these are the only LED's that she can read and even sew by.) They fit into any cabin light fixture and they provide the retrofit connectors free.

Outside LED's, Dr. LED is fantastic. Bright, long-lasting.

Neither are cheap but both have been put through the wringer and have performed beautifully.

We have fully retrofit all of our cabin lights to LED. We can make it brighter than daytime and the battery meter never budge.
