I am not sure that LED are a write off for RIBS.
True the low power consumption is not so important, but the robustness in an environment of shocks and drops is worth consideration. Also the lifetime cost with no bulbs to buy as/when they do go pop.
The single frequency light is also better for distance, round here you can see the LED head torches that the anglers on the breakwater use from well over a mile away, where a similarly bright bulb would stand no chance.
As for cost, these have come down nicely to around 48 quid. Not ideal as they are hard to mount with the separation from the ARW, but a good example of value.
