Hi - as none of the original sliding internal lights work on Ella I should like to replace them with brass or similar led lights.  Does anyone have any suggestions? I think George Isted posted re some lights that he had found.  Am thinking of angular lights in the each corner of the saloon etc.

Have found the link at www.ultraleds.co.uk on an older forum.  Can anyone suggest a supplier for the actual light fittings. Was thinking small brass angled??  Any suggestions greatly appreciated!!
Many thanks

Hi Anna
Try EC Smith (Google) they do brass LED Cabin Lights. I have used their fittings on land and they were fine.

Hello Anna,
Can I pick up on this topic please ?
Did you upgrade to LED because you wanted to or was it because the old style sliding berth lights made by Hella, along with their bulbs, are no longer available to buy ?  One of mine has just broken and I cannot find replacements on line.  Have you or anyone else any advice ?
with thanks
Gillian

You can buy an LED equivalent from Hella - at a price

If you just want bulbs, buy LED festoon bulbs of the right length on eBay. From memory, they are either 42 or 44mm.

Hi Gillian - we replaced all the sliding internal lights on Ella with similar ones in white with individual switches on them. We used leds as last longer and less power consumption. We found them on eBay for around £5 each but can't find the link!! Will try and remember to take a photo. Hope this helps. Anna
Many thanks
Anna
