The 12V version of this elegantly appointed low profile LED courtesy light features soft rounded edges that blend in perfectly with its environment. It features the latest generation voltage regulated SMD LEDs from Osram. The circuit board is designed to optimize light output and extend operating life of the LED diodes. The result is high performance and consistent light output over an extremely wide voltage range (a requirement for compliance with today's complex marine DC electrical systems). A unique diffusion lens refracts the light, resulting in elimination of the typical annoying "dots" so common in lesser quality LED fixtures.
