I recently purchased a Lunasea Portable LED Light Bar for my boat, and I love it. The back stateroom on the boat has always been dark as it only has two small overhead lights. This light bar lights up the whole room and then some. It comes with a metal pad that is screwed into the wall, and the light bar has strong magnets on the bottom that hold it in place. We encountered some heavy seas rounding Point Atkinson, and the light bar did not budge. It is lightweight and great for the engine room, a dark boat house, BBQ’ing or even walking the dog at night.
This rechargeable, handheld light is Ultra Bright at 600 lumens, yet compact at 8.5 inches and only 10 ounces. It utilizes a 4000mAH Lithium Ion rechargeable battery and includes a USB 12VDC charger and cable. It can be mounted using multiple methods or simply set down where you require light. As a bonus, the charged light can be used to power other USB devices such as cell phones. However, you must purchase a separate mini-USB-to-device charger cable. (Retail $55-65 LLB-32PC-01-00)
