Nick - After your recent reply I reread your orginal post and missed the part about you running a 24V system. I should have read your post more closely. I am sure you have run a google search on "24V automotive LED bulbs". Here is one link near the top of the list They have 24V dome lightbulb replacements

Kind regards

Chuck

David

I had just attempted to post a detailed post on my recent exhaustive research into led nav lights, Which i seem to have lost.

However let me say that there are leds & leds, The chinese Products seem to be very inefficient & some what unreliable.

On paper"Dr Leds" new replacement globes with two nautical mile range & claimed current draw of 0.09 amps,have to be the

most efficient available.

However i have no personal experience with them or thier product as yet (ALL FORUM FEEDBACK URGENTLY NEEDED)

I definitely would not over look quality LEDS Just yet willpost more later.

Most LED's lights designed for either the automotive or decorative lighting market rely on a simple dropping resistor in their circuit, with the assumption that they will be used over a small voltage range. In marine and off-grid applications, LED lights see a far greater voltage range. As a consequence, either the dropping resistor has to be sized for the greatest possible voltage, with an attendant and linear decrease in light as the voltage drops into the "normal" discharging voltage level (12.25-12.75 volts), or the lifetime of the light unit is reduced. Our testing has shown that a resistor that is sized for a 12.75 volt supply will lead to a module failure within 4 years
