LED bulb conversions, USB chargers, 12v TV and router

For reference as I try to optimize power consumption. I have been replacing light bulbs with LEDs and this is a list of the bulbs I used, they have been tested and do not interfere with the VHF radio. The USB chargers work off the 12V system and can be turned on and off individually. TV's and router run off the 12V system. I shouldn't need to use the inverter unless I use the microwave.

All light fixtures, Warm White Light Lamps, 1.5W Need to trim plastic nub off top of bulb to fit ceiling light fixtures of a 2005 Beneteau 423.

Red Courtesy lights .24W

Dual socket USB chargers (12V system)

TV's (12V system) Free Signal TV Transit 32"
32" Salon, 49W - wide viewing angle from all of salon. USB port on TV will power a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ computer, I have mine set to display OpenCPN, Instruments or stream video.

Stateroom, limited viewing angle, had to get a mount to tilt the screen down. Milanix 14" Portable Digital TV Battery Powered LED HD Television

Router - 5v Power from USB Port, advanced features like bridging marina WiFi and advanced firewall controls. GL.iNet GL-AR750S-Ext Gigabit Travel Router
