Sensibulb: Incandescent Warmth, LED Economics
After sunset your house batteries get quite a workout. Unless you’re plugged into a dock, most of us become genuine cheapskates with the cabin lighting. After all, interior lighting causes a constant drain on your batteries, and they can get dangerously hot. A good skipper can’t help but be aware that his batteries are being used up literally before his eyes!
Sailor’s Solutions Sensibulb™ LED Lights are very easy on your batteries. In fact, these little units use about six to eight times fewer amp-hours than Halogens and Xenons and they don’t throw off all that uncomfortable heat.
Sailor’s Solutions believes that Halogen lighting is just plain dangerous and should be considered a fire hazard.
Up to now, if you wanted to use LEDs and enjoy the energy savings and low heat, you had to put up with lighting that just wasn’t bright enough and had a harsh blue tint. Overhead or dome lighting was impossible and reading under a narrow “spot” was a challenge.
The crew at Sailor’s Solutions set out to solve the technical challenges involved with making a 12-Volt DC light bulb replacement with the beneficial low energy usage of LEDs. It would need to produce light just as bright and dispersed as a real light bulb and function equally well in overhead or dome applications.
Sailor’s Solutions threw in dimmable too because it’s just such a luxury to be able to dim down a fixture when you want to.
With the help of several talented engineers and thermal engineering assistance from NASA’s SATOP program, the Sensibulb™ LED Lighting System was perfected. Featuring abundant soft white light in a dispersed pattern with very efficient energy usage, Sensibulb™ is a direct replacement for all of your 12VDC interior lightbulbs.
But that’s not all! Each Sensibulb has a dimmer circuit (optional) that allows you to tune in just the right amount of light for a comfortable dining or entertaining experience.
So turn on the cabin lights and adjust them as you prefer. Have a pleasant evening onboard and don’t worry about the batteries!

Michael at Bebi in Fiji writes: “Electrically, we use an integral linear current regulator to provide maximum light intensity without negatively impacting the life of the LED’s. We have had a light on ‘Shangri-La’ in continuous test for over 18 months without any sign of deterioration or discoloration in the lenses. It has been repeatedly subject to system voltages greater than 15 volts and as low as 11.5. The light has been subjected to tropical storms and the harsh radiation of the tropical sun.”
