        • One Side Doesn't Work

        Comments about Maputo LED Ceiling Light:

        bought two. looked perfect for my needs on a small 21' coastal cruising catamaran. each hull has its own solar recharged 12v 10ah battery (florida keys so charging is not a problem). batteries runs aqual signal nav lights, anchor light, gps, vhf and a few other items with no problem split between sides. not all things run at once. with all things off and the battery fully charged this light will only turn on the red side and not the white. but it will turn on the white on a larger car sized battery. i demonstrated this at west marine. everyone was confused. a call to aqual signal while at west marine on my third visit confused their tech person as well. we pulled other brands of red/white lights off the shelf and put multiple units together as well as my aqual signal anchor light that i brought with me (we then had had 16 leds together) and the white and reds all worked simultaneously without a problem on that 10ah battery. only the aqual signal units will not work on white by themselves! it took three trips to west marine to convince them i'm not stupid. 180 driving miles wasted. the new units i got were 25% the cost of the aqua signal unit and work fine (west marine brand LED surface mount accent light 4red/4white). if you have lots of battery power maybe these are a good buy but if you want them on a small sail boat don't waste your money. aqual signal should let people know that these will not work on lower power batteries!!!! there are no warnings nor instructions that provide such information about this. fortunately west marine returned them without question -- especially after i proved that i wasn't wrong! last comment, the aqua signal person said they would get back to us with an explanation, so far no response.

          Comments about Maputo LED Ceiling Light:

          Started by replacing dead flourescent fixtures, now have replaced every light on the boat (11) with these, great illumination and can leave them all on for less power than one old incandescent. Only drawback is the lack of wiring run/space under the fixture.

          Comments about Maputo LED Ceiling Light:

          Aqua Signal lists the dimensions of this light incorrectly. The lamp is 16"L x 3.125"W (NOT 4.45"). Was trying to replace an old lamp and needed to cover a fairly large hole in the cabin ceiling. The slim width is problematic for my application. Otherwise this seems to be great lamp with the red/white options. White seems to be fairly bright too.

            It's definitely bright enough to light up a boat head or engine room. I have one in the head now, and as my 12V fluorescent bulbs in other spots die I'll replace those lamps with this model.

              Having a recess on the bottom for the wiring would make this light much easier to install.Overall I think it's a great light.

                Great light and much brighter than expected

                The only reason it is not a 5 is that there is no recess on the bottom for the wiring or connectors. You have to raise it off the mounting surface somehow to fit in the crimped barrels if you cannot stuff the wires back into wherever you are mounting it and line that up with the end of the fixture where the wires come out.

                Extending the side plastic to make a skirt and create a recess under the light would make this a GREAT product. Another option would be to provide a gasket of a complimentary color to provide for the same recess.

                Where I mounted the two lights I installed was not very visible so I just snugged down the front and left the rear of the fixture elevated. If the wife complains I will seal around the fixture with silicone and be done with it.

                  Comments about Maputo LED Ceiling Light:

                  Replaced two flourescent in our yacht's saloon with two of these. The white light is brighter and better for reading etc. The red is great to give those below an excellent light at night when night vision retention is essential. A very versatile light.
                  We will buy another for the head and perhaps one for the master cabin too.
