LED lights have revolutionized onboard lighting in recent years due to the featherweight draw they impose on house batteries. Initially LEDs were several times costlier than their incandescent brethren. Thankfully, this has changed recently, and Hella Marines line of NaviLED PRO navigation lights are a great example of affordable performance. These lights use a scant 10% of the power consumed by an incandescent bulb, come with an ultra-heavy-duty BHS lens, and have reverse polarity and spike protection. They are available as port/starboard running lights, or as a masthead unit.
