Best CFL or LED cabin lights?
OK, I enter a fray. One of my cabin lights broke and it has prompted me to replace at least that one, if not more. It is a standard incandescent with a single bayonet bulb of 25 W I think. So 2 amps.
I've done a massive amount of reading on cabin lights, and am familiar with all the rationales for CFL and LED, but when push comes to shove, it is painfully difficult to choose from among the baffling array of choices.
What I seek is a light for above our galley sink. It must be at least as bright as the 25W incandescent.
I purchased and tried to install an Innovative Lighting flourescent with a 13W bulb but besides it having some defective wiring, it was not bright enough. Not as bright as the other 25W incandescents.
I'm really open to anyone who can seriously vouch for some CFL or LED cabin lights that give off plenty of light. I'm aware of Alpenglow, but am not convinced their 9W model gives off enough light. They say 600 lumens, but how can their 9W flourescent give off more light than the 13W fllourescent I just tried today?
I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
