Hella Marine’s NaviLED PRO navigation lights look tailor-made not only for trailersailers and smaller cruisers with limited battery capacity, but for offshore and bluewater boats that need to conserve energy. They come in 2- and 3-mile versions that meet all international requirements for navigation lights. They consume only one-tenth the power of their filament-bulbed equivalents and, like all LEDs, have many times the lifespan. They’ll accept between 9 and 33 volts DC, and unlike regular bulbs they won’t dim even when battery voltage is way down. The port, starboard, and stern lights are waterproof and have tough acrylic casings. MSRP is $224 (2nm), $249 (3nm). Hella Marine; 770-631-7500; www.hellamarine.com
