 Custom LED cabin lighting

"Anungoday's cabin lighting uses two strands of LEDs. The first strand is of five red LEDs with three in the main saloon and two in the vee berth. A second strand is of three white LEDs in the main saloon only. The white strand has its own switch, so the main cabin light dimmer brings up either the red strand only, which will not clobber night vision, or dims the red and white strands together. When both strands are on and turned up full, the half-watt total power consumption would take three months to drain the battery. Of course the battery would have self-discharged long before that."
