This light replaced a Perko 10 watt bulb perfectly and it only uses 1 watt. I don't have a way to charge my battery when I am out on the water and plan on taking a multi-day trip this Fall so reducing my power needs is a must. The package states that it replaces a "Perko Bulb Fig. 71" which is what I needed. The description implies that part of the bulb is made in the USA but it was designed in the USA. The product is made overseas which was a disappointment to me. There is a one year warranty so make sure you save your receipt and the display card in the package. I plan on trying this out for a while and then replacing all of my bulbs with LEDs if it holds up. I'll post another review after I've used it for a while.

I replaced all my navigation light on my sail boat with LED lights to lower the power consumption. The lights worked well enough to navigate the SF Bay at night. The bulbs themselves didn't seem to hold up well in the marine enviornment. After one year they corroided so badly that the acutal LED fell out and one of the ends disappeared. Also there are no markings on the bulb to indicate which is the positive end ( at least I couldn't find it) You would think that if polarity was important the bulb would have markings indicating Positive / Negitive.
Would be ok for interior lights but not long term for Nav lights. If they weren't so darn expensive I wouldn't mind but I would hope that I would get a couple of years out of them at least.

      Didn't fit Perko combination all around nav light

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Dr. Led Festoon Star Navigation LED Replacement Bulb:

      Package states it would be for the application I had (Perko combination all around light). Because the light bulb must over travel in the socket and the LED bulb has a protruding flange at each end of the LED segment, it will not install. I cannot comment on the item quality as I never got past the installation hurdle and returned the item.

          So far the Dr Led Festoon Star anchor light replacement bulb has been a real "shining star," providing ample light at a fraction of the energy usage of an incandescent bulb.

          These lights are brighter than the original lights they replaced. Ive only had them installed a week. I hope the high price pays off in longevity.

          bought this light cause i was told it was brighter and more efficient. i found it was dim compared to the original incandescent bulb(#3175 12v 10w) i had in my forward nav light. the description says this L.E.D. is a 1 watt while the spec says it's a 30 watt. what is it really? IMO 1 watt.

                  Comments about Dr. Led Festoon Star Navigation LED Replacement Bulb:

                  They warn not to use white LED behind a colored lense, because it's not bright enough. That's a drawback. Colored LEDs are sold for single color lenses, so my understanding is that a single-bulb bow light (red and green lenses) cannot use these LEDs.

                  After reading that, I was surprised that the LEDs seemed brighter than the incandescents they replaced. It's worth the extra cost to know that the battery will work all night.

                  Every LED light package should include a conspicuous note about polarity, especially with festoon bulbs. I practically rewired the boat before I remembered that LEDs are particular about polarity.
