Halogen bulbs or LEDs on Board?

There is no questioning the benefits of LED over halogen bulbs; halogens consume 92 percent more power and provide less measured light than LEDs.

There is no questioning the benefits of LED over halogen bulbs; halogens consume 92 percent more power and provide less measured light than LEDs.

This means the switch to LED onboard will save you energy and time energy, if you do it correctly.

The most common mistake boaties make is replacing existing halogen onboard with a low-grade, cheap, China LED option.

Initially, people go for price over quality, purchasing a cheap globe manufactured in China.

While it will save energy over the power-hungry halogen bulbs, it'll only last a few months before it requires your attention and your wallet again and again. Unlike the halogen light sources, LEDs usually don't "burn out".A good LEDs lasts 60,000 - 80,000 hours, basically a one-off cost. You've got to weight up the cost over the longevity.

Another common misconception surrounding LEDs lights is the output of light itself. A lot of people like lower color temperature - warm light, and think all LED lights come out in cool white, however, the new colour temperatures can be richer and more vibrant than ever before.

Whether you require a complete interior conversion, flood or spotlight, the most efficient LED products to meet your needs.
