LED Cabin Light Bulbs
Mod By Robert Peters
These awesome, super-bright little LEDs arrived in the mail today (thanks Amazon!) and of course I had to install them to replace the "festoon" bulb for the driver's dome light and the 3-bulb "incandescent" fixture in the centre of the cabin.
Wow! These LED bulbs rock the casbah! They have distinct advantages over traditional incandescent bulbs (the 10W GE ones with the filaments in the photo) — much higher in efficiency (using 50% to 90% less energy) and they also last a lot longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, e.g. rated at 50,000 hours vs. the average of 1000 hours for incandescent. They offer superior light quality (with less lumen deterioration), and are safer to operate (because they generate less heat and therefore greatly reduce the risk of burns or fires). They are also more environmentally friendly with recyclable components, and are durably built without fragile filaments or glass.
