self contained battery powered LED interior lights

I am looking for some reasonable decent looking interior lights for the overhead that are self contained battery powered. I have not found anything suitable by Googling.
Anyone have any ideas?

Re: self contained battery powered LED interior lights

I use the NEBO Larry 8 light. You can get them on Amazon for around 5 bucks.
These lights have a magnet and I installed small metal plates (not Stainless, of course) in strategic locations in the boat. I can move them around as needed and they last a long time on AAA batteries. I use rechargeable batteries and a small solar panel to recharge them.

Re: self contained battery powered LED interior lights

I bought a some of these at Costco a couple of years ago for the V-berth on my boat. They work pretty well, as long as I remember to set them to "on" or "off", rather than "motion-sensor".

Re: self contained battery powered LED interior lights

My first choice to looke at would be Doctor LED, Dr. LED, is a designer and manufacturer of LED-based lighting solutions for marine and boating applications. but it does not look like they have battery powered other than the house battery via wire.

YOu might be surprised what you could find at a target, radio shack, Ace, True Value or Home Depot. Or also locally seattle lighting or some other light source.

Re: self contained battery powered LED interior lights

Not exactly what Bob is looking for, but I was on a walkabout in West Marine last weekend, while it was raining. I needed about $5 in supplies and spent $500! Well, bought my wife new deck shoes and a sun dress in the equation. Cruising gifts.

Anyway, on their trinket rack, I saw LED bicycle headlights, with what look like substantial tie wraps to hold them on. The back of the little white light was arced to mold around the handle bar. I thought, they would be perfect to put on the piping underneath our bimini as night lighting. I bought two, thinking I may need more. Turns out to be perfect as is. Just enough soft white light to eat, without feeling like its noon. A real winner. Our cockpit table lighting is too bright in the middle of the table, but you still can't see what you're eating. Of course, I tossed the packaging and now don't know the brand.

Edit: says Nite Ize on it. Couldn't find it exactly with google.

Re: self contained battery powered LED interior lights

Check in RV stores as well. I picked up some AAA powered LEDs similar to what ChasH posted at Walmart for (I think) $20 for a 3 pack, in their RV section in automotive.

Re: self contained battery powered LED interior lights

Bob if you are looking for something that doesn't destroy the cat curled up on the rug in front of the fire feeling, I have not found it. In sailboat lighting pictures I notice that a wide tapering brass bezel makes the hockey puck taped to the headliner less annoying, but the red and black wires dangling across the roof don't help. perhaps something in an orange light instead of the blue white might help.

Re: self contained battery powered LED interior lights

BP, try your local bicycle shop, they will have some of the best of the latest led technology lights, battery powered, and likely far brighter than what home/hardware stores have to offer.
Just a thought.
