My biggest beef with the LED industry is not letting us know an equivalent wattage or lumens so we know with what strength to replace standard bulbs.
I will let you know how it looks, I have three outdoor work lights (I think!)
I have also been replacing the indoor lights with LED's. We rarely camp where there is a hookup so conserving energy is a real plus. Maybe I don't need to get on the kids for leaving lights on so much now!
Your welcome. I think the warm white was a good choice. I accidentally ordered some cool white for the interior of the trailer and exchanged them for the warm white.
As for camping without hookups, I hear you. Incandescent light bulbs use a lot of battery power. I have a 2000 watt inverter, four 6 volt batteries and four solar panels on my unit. When I look at the inverter monitor I am drawing around 4 amps with the inverter on. That draw is coming from my satellite receiver and whatever power the four televisions use when not even turned on. When I turn on ALL of my lights I am drawing LESS than 6 amps. So ALL the lights in the unit are using less than 2 amp hours of battery power.
