The light emitting diode, or "LED" for short, has largely obliterated the problems usually associated with navigation lighting. Powerful, efficient, compact, highly durable and extremely long lived; incandescent navigation lights never stood a chance once the LED was introduced. Where it was once pretty much standard practice to periodically inspect, clean and replace your lights several times during the boating season, LEDs have made it possible to go an entire season with little more than an occasional inspection to ensure everything is still operating as expected. In most cases, an LED lighting won't even need replacing for 5 years or more.
Globe lights are constructed in the same way as fairy lights but with larger bulbs that are attractive in their own right and don't need to be covered with a shade. Globe lights are usually for use outside unless decorating a particularly large indoor area, which would probably be for commercial use. Globe lights are often connectible so that it is easy to buy just enough for the project they are for. Designer string lighting is available in many sizes and are determined by either an unusual shape of bulb or be shades over the bulbs. String lighting is designed to be adult or child orientated that can follow a theme or not, depicting characters, lanterns, animals, almost anything!
Where LED lights really shine though is in light output and electrical efficiency. A typical incandescent bulb produces about 17 light lumens per watt at best. Most of the electrical energy fed to the bulb is radiated as heat, resulting in a very inefficient and wasteful light source. LEDs, on the other hand, produce anywhere from 60 to 100 lumens per watt. Very little energy fed into the LED is radiated as heat, resulting in a very efficient light source that can produce a lot more light than an incandescent while using far less electrical power. Considering the importance of navigation lighting and the need to conserve power on a boat, this is an extremely attractive benefit. You can use less power, yet produce a much stronger nav light signal, improving your visibility to other boats while reducing power consumption at the same time. On smaller boats, you could run a basic set of navigation lights all night and still not deplete your batteries. Increased safety and increased efficiency, all from a simply change in light sources!
