Finally sorted for me with two of these babes http://www.westmarine.com/buy/west-m...ts--P012668273 bought when in LA recently.
$120 each is about £70 so even with FedEx it's still very cheap.
Very bright and easy to install.
Oh dear, 400 lumens , not worth fitting in my opinion, 1000s of lumens is really the only way. You will be very disappointed when you see a proper product like Lumishore's.
I hope they're ok Aviator but as a matter of physics 400 lumens is a pretty small number I'm afraid. And that might be light source lumens, as opposed to fixture lumens, which is a lower number and is the universally recognised "rating" by people who want the real answer as opposed to marketing hype.
The current doesn't make sense - they are quoting 6x the current when run at 12v as compared with 24v. Doesn't seem to stack up, though it hardly matters I suppose
You mentioned pricing - actually on a lumens-per-£ measure (if there is any sense in that!) your lights are a multiple of the cost of Lumishores

Brilliant, thanks for resurrecting that. I'd forgotten about all the underwater lights nonsense, had a great laugh re-reading it.
Geez, did you really re-read the whole thread?
You must be more obsessed with u/w lights than those who installed enough of them to brighten the whole Med....
I too was rather mystified with underwater lights, and was wondering where you get waterproof newspapers to read, but then I do enjoy watching fish, so can understand it. Not sucha daft idea maybe. Probably nice for an evening swim too. What surprised me most was the number of posts, some good banter here too , lets face it mostly an hour spent on the forum will usually be far more amusing and better than watching the TV.
