That has been my problem with LEDs but I have to say the current generation of warm white LEDs are staggeringly good.

My take on this is that I'd like to go LED as general and task lighting but keeping a couple of 10w halogens in the saloon.

One other thing we are looking at is a small task light from Osram that is a battery operated LED. We are thinking of putting them into galley cupboards under the shelves.

The Dogs thing about oil is quite correct except for the heat. We have one of these and I love the sucker but it does put out some heat. Sydney winters are not cold, 10 degrees Celsius is about minimum, but thats still a bit chilly. The oil lamp is quite sufficient to take the chill off the air, admittedly in a very well insulated cabin.
