I am a 57 year old sailor and have found that my fetish for LED lighting devices is getting out of hand
It started slowly with a simple torch. I was pleased with the hours I got from every battery set - I would turn it on and off just for the pleasure and I would feel the bulb and marvel at how cool it was running.
I now sit below with several devices casting a ghostly unpleasant light across my tiny saloon which at one time was lit by the lovely glow of incandescent energy sapping bulbs or even by candles
I once had a wonderful LED torch that ran on six AA batteries for 1000 years - it produced a lovely bright and powerful but ghostly white light.I made a special wooden holder for it by the cabin door
Sadly on one terribIe evening put it down on a pontoon and watched it roll into the water shining brightly as it went down.
Just to write about the incident brings back disturbing flashbacks.
recently I came across an LED torch that costs £213
