My Favourite New Light Bar from LunaSea

I recently purchased a LunaSea light bar for my boat and I love it.  The back stateroom on the boat has always been dark as it only has two small overhead lights.  This lightbar lights up the whole room and then some.  It comes with a metal pad that is screwed into the wall and the light bar has strong magnets on the bottom that hold it in place.  We encountered some heavy seas rounding Point Atkinson and the light bar did not budge.  It is really lightweight and is great for the engine room, a dark boat house, bbq’ing, or even walking the dog at night.

This rechargeable, hand held light is Ultra Bright at 600 lumen, yet compact at 8.5 inches and only 10 ounces.  It utilizes a 4000mAH Lithium Ion rechargeable battery and includes a USB 12VDC charger and cable. It can be mounted using multiple methods or simply set down where you require light. As an added bonus, the charged light can be used to power other USB devices such as cell phones.  However, you must purchase a separate mini-USB-to-device charger cable.  Retail $ 65.00  LLB-32PC-01-00
