Alpenglow in the News
Practical Sailor, June 2014, "LED Interior Lights Part 2" Practical Sailor's editors recognized Alpenglow's bulkhead LED Overhead Light as the Best Choice among the LED lights they evaluated for area illumination. They also recognized Alpenglow's Dimmable Reading Light as the Best Choice for reading lights.
Overhead Light: "The high-power setting sucked up 0.6 of an amp, but the illumination delivered was worth it."
Reading Light: "The single-point LED light delivered the brightest beam... It also provided the largest diameter illumination of all the reading lights."

We’ll have a complete set of [Alpenglow] LED reading lights on our new boat." Read full review of our cabin lights (PDF)...
