Energy-efficiency is crucial when choosing lights for houseboats and outdoor applications.  With Mega-Lights from Davis Instruments, power consumption is no longer a worry.  These powerful lights can run continuously for over 700 hours on an 80 amp hour battery.

Mega-Lights come with two easy-to-change bulbs and dual-function Fresnel lenses for increased visibility.  The original bayonet-type bulb can be seen up to two nautical miles away and draws just .11 amps.  The second bulb is more than twice as bright and requires only .32 amps.  In order to avoid unnecessary battery draw, Mega-Lights are equipped with sensors which automatically switch the lights on at dusk and off at dawn.  As durable as they are resourceful, Mega-Lights also feature 100% waterproof o-ring sealed lenses and bases.


Available in three different models, there's a Davis Mega-Light for every need.  The versatile Mega-Light Utility includes a standard lighter plug, 15' cord and an easy-hang bracket, as well as an energy-efficient circuit board design.

The Mega-Light Masthead is easy to install on a masthead, interior wall or bulkhead, as it comes mounted to a stainless steel bracket.  Providing multiple installation options, the bracket has six #10 holes and two key-way slots.  This model includes a mounting hole for use with a Windex 15 mounting base and comes with 12" of lead wire.  The Mega-Light Masthead is ideal for marking boats on a mooring or at anchor, nighttime security and lighting stairways and entryways.

The Mega-Light Ultimate Cockpit Light features six function modes, which are controlled by waterproof push button switches.  With white incandescent, as well as red and yellow LEDs, this light is guaranteed for over 100,000 hours.  Function modes include steady white, red or yellow, blinking red or yellow and alternating red and yellow flashing.  The Mega-Light Ultimate Cockpit Light is perfect for vessel identification, warning lights, reading charts or entertaining aboard.  This light also includes a 15' heavy-duty cord, lighter plug and easy-hang bracket.

The Mega-Light Utility from Davis retails for just $46.99, the Masthead costs only $51.99 and the Mega-Light Ultimate Cockpit Light is $69.99.
