Click on the picture or hypelink text below to download a .pdf copy of our Marinebeam Guide to LED Technology. This document is meant to provide a brief introduction to LEDs, driver technologies, and what to look for when selecting marine LEDs for use on your yacht.

Please note that while this guide was written by our founder in 2007, most of the info is still relevant and useful when selecting LED products. There have been some changes in the market, but the horror stories remain. We now see a flood of cheap Chinese and Singaporean lights in the market. Many of you may have already heard about the short lifespan products, boat fires, exploding bulbs, and radio interference. Educate yourself and then you can make a good choice when selecting products.

We hope that you find this guide useful.
