Please everyone using .49 cent LED's these probably have no voltage regulation and they have been known to smoke. This is a case of buyer beware you get what you pay for. With that being said I prefer LED light fixtures over bulb replacements the diffusion for LEDs is quite different than conventional lighting. A fixture can make a huge difference in the light pattern and perceived brightness.

Added some strip light under the flybridge helm and also a dual color spreader w/ dimmer.
The strip was just some RGB strip I had left over from some projects and wired it to run red.
The spreader is a Lumitec.Click image for larger version

I am looking to add more LED lighting specifically to my galley counter and just ordered the deckhand dimmer as recommended in this thread. I have a question regarding what LED bulbs will work. The manufacturer states that the switch will work with "non regulated LEDs". Is that to say that it will work on non dim-mable LEDs or dose the term non dim-mable only apply to AC systems? I am probably overthinking this but was hoping someone has installed this dimmer with LEDs and would know what it will work with before I invest in the LEDs Thank!!

Great thread! lots of info.
