30-LED 44mm Dimple / Barrel End Festoon (FS-44-30B)
This is our newest cluster which features 30 super bright mini-SMD LEDs. It uses the latest technology, giving the highest output per watt.Used as an anchor light, it is substantially brighter than the 10W incandescent it replaces.
This is a drop-in replacement LED bulb that replaces 44mm Festoons in Aqua Signal Series 25 anchor lamps, and navigation lamps.
. NOTICE: BEGINNING IN 2011, AQUA SIGNAL SERIES 25 is using a Cone-End festoon bulb. If you have a newer fixture (after Sept 2010) check your bulb first.
This bulb features our constant-current circuit, so it can be used in 12V or 24VDC applications.
Warm white will render better colors behind bi-colored (red/green) combination lenses than will cool white.
How to choose LED Output Color: If the Red and Green are separate fixtures, use Red behind Red and Green behind Green.

USCG CERTIFICATION: The USCG and other maritime testing agencies currently do not certify replacement bulbs by themselves, LED or otherwise. Only luminaires (fixtures with bulbs) are certified against the Colreg requirements. Currently, there are no federal or state requirements for end-users (boat owners) to utilize certified fixtures. This is a requirement only for boat manufacturers. While our bulbs in standard fixtures are easily visible at distances exceeding 3nm, and are the brightest replacement LED bulbs available, their use in navigational fixtures is strictly the decision of the end-user.
Needed a 44mm dimpled bulb, and chose to try this since I was replacing my bow light bulb too. Looks well made. Size is right. Light output is impressive. Good price.

It appears to be at least 2X brighter, maybe more. I didn't check the current consumption but it is stated to be less than 1/3 of the original bulb's 1-amp. And it should never need to be replaced, a great comfort knowing it won't quit when you need it most or necessitate climbing the mast to replace.
