Comments about Portable LED Navigation Light, Bi Color with C Clamp Mount:

Tried on front of small center console runabout boat. First one failed, bought another and it failed too. Good news: suction cup excellent, went way faster than 7 K, no problem. Seems to be fairly weather resistant, I never found water inside it. But, agree with other reviewer, switch is poorly designed and inaccessible, seems to be the cause of the failures. Battery life is good with the LED bulb. Extra bulbs should be available. If you mount the unit in the vertical position, light is so bright that your night vision is affected - I had to put a piece of tape on the back side of the lenses. Overall, couldn't trust the reliability, so, $100 down the drain.

Comments about Portable LED Navigation Light, Bi Color with C Clamp Mount:

This is an excellent product. The LED's are bright and extend the life of the batteries. It is perfect for our RIB and we keep the all around white and bi-color in a dry bag under the dinghy sea.

On Con side:I have had two units fail due to switch problems and unfortunately, the poor design of the sealed switch makes it impossible to clean or repair. West Marine is good about honoring the one year warranty, but mine have failed after two plus years. I now have to consider them to be another expensive expendable item for our rib.

I reluctantly recommend this product as the best there is at the moment in battery operated portable LED Navigation Lights.
