I'm looking to get a spotlight on my boat and am curious if any of you guys have seen the new L.E.D. Golight? I think the emily rose has an LED but i haven't seen it and don't know if its worth the money. I know my L.E.D. flashlight is a hell of a lot better than any other regular light if used but haven't heard any reviews about it being used it a spotlight function? What do you guys think?
we just got LED spot lights on our cars at work, they are night and day compared to the old standard lights.
Not exactly a good comparison, but I would go LED. also they pull less power form the battery.
I believe ours are made by whelen, they are pilar mounts. As you stated LED is much brighter than a standard light, i guess you just need to justify the price difference for the amount of time you will use the light.
I just bought a new flashlight that knocked my socks off with the great beam. I have converted my cockpit lights to all leds and I love them. Now if I can just find a real spotlight thet is led I would have to take a good hard look. The one's out there now are outragious pricewise. Has to be wireless remote too.
TU wound up! that was fast!....had one before that was Not LED. brought it to boat and actually mounted under tower controls. looked like it would work niceley.BUT after all said and done, directions said could not be mounted up side down,(which it was).....ouch
LED flashlights are great, batteries last much longer. I have had a few different ones for the ship but I have noticed that it is the lenses that makes the difference. Some LED lenses have a good "spot" and some are more defused. I need that spot when trying to find an oil drip.
WRT the Golight spot lights I am going to buy the regulatr bulb $184 model vice the LED. The regular one is 400,000CP. There is no CP rating for the LED??? The regular one most likely has that better spot. Yes the LED draw less amps but in this case 3 amps compared to 5.5. This isn't that much difference compared to say navigation lights that draw 10 times less.
