I have a three-LED unit I use in the head for night sailing and to keep the glare down during middle-aged guy trips to the head in the middle of the night. I put four layers of carefully cut "clear" packing tape inside the lens to get the light level down. They are Home Depot stuff but look quite nice four years downstream.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?
Mine are up high and I don't have leaks but still the spring-loaded connectors to the batteries do corrode with time. I go over them about once a year with a pencil eraser. Batteries last between two and three years at our rate of use (a lot).it was my experience that battery-powered lights were not durable at all, as in failed within weeks
