Convenient LED Light Uses Only 1/50th Of An Amp

LED lighting has changed how people experience the outdoors at night. Davis Instruments takes this innovative technology to a high level with its new Mega-Light. Two models provide bright, clear light, while only drawing 1/50th of an amp.

With their advanced, easy-to-replace LED bulbs and high-output circuit boards, Mega-Lights are so efficient, they’ll run for 2,000 hours – over 80 days – on a fully charged 12-volt car battery. They even feature a light sensor that turns them on automatically when it gets dark.

The rugged Mega-Lights are built for the outdoors, and 100% waterproof with an O-ring seal protecting the works. The Fresnel lens projects light an impressive 2 nm (2.3 mi.), and an included 320 mA bulb provides the option for twice that illumination. While not U.S.C.G. approved, Mega-Light is commonly used in addition to an anchor light on vessels, allowing dinghy operators and others looking forward in the dark to easily see its illumination.

Perfect for boaters, anglers, RVers or anyone with a 12V DC power outlet, the Mega-Light “Utility” model comes with a UL-approved, 15-foot heavy-duty cord with fused plug and hanging bracket. An incandescent bulb is included for softer lighting.

The Mega-Light “Masthead” is perfect for use as a navigation, interior or security light, and comes with a stainless steel bracket for mounting to a mast or bulkhead, or inside an engine compartment. With six #10 holes and two key-way slots, it offers a wide variety of installation options, and comes pre-wired with a 12-inch lead.

Davis Instruments’ Mega-Light “Utility” is $49.99, and the Mega-Light “Masthead” retails at $52.99. For more information visit
