I've got a Lopologht bi-color at the bow. It has been to Hawaii and back, and has held up great. I replaced the deck-level running lights with LEDS not for the power savings, but because the connectors in my original Aqua Signal bi-color kept corroding, causing the light to fail when I needed it. The well-sealed Lopolight is showing no sign of corrosion.

At the masthead I had replaced the bulbs in my Aqua Signal Anchor/Tri-color with "FirstStar" LED bulbs. These were quite expensive, and may not be the best solution now -- this was about five years ago. Corrosion wasn't a problem at the mast head, but power consumption of the tricolor during long passages was a big factor for me.
