Title: LED Change
Post by: Lone Lock on May 12, 2017, 07:19:24 PM
I camp often enough without electric that I wanted to change my light fixtures from the traditional bulbs to LED's to conserve my battery power.  Samebutdifferent and Elmirafudd were showing off their new camper last weekend and they bought LED bulbs on amazon for cheap.  I liked them so I bought the same brand.  They bought the blue tinge ones and I bought the cool yellow lights.  I'd love to do a side by side comparison.  Maybe next time we're camping together we'll switch some bulbs.

I bought 20 for $22

Samebutdifferent forwarded me a pic of his LED -vs- regular lights.  When we camp together we'll try to remember to get a side by side comparison of his blue LED -vs- my cool white LED.

leds come in several colors &. brightness, so shop accordingly. some can even be used with dimmer switches. ($$) i supplement my overheads w LED string lights for softer lighting.
