Re: LED Light Project for Sailboat

What struck me about these LEDs is how bright they are and how little current they use. I have only measured the current use for the entire 16 foot string, but I would guess that the small circle that I installed into the fixture would only use around .2 amps, but is as bright as the 1 amp bulb I took out.
