This slimline LED map & chart light from Labcraft is a flexible, slimline unit for surface mounting in boats and vehicles. It features 5 high brightness, low current consumption LEDs mounted in-line to produce a narrow, focused light output, and its clever rotating lens is half clear and half red to allow you to quickly and easily switch the light output colour to suit your needs. The robust, 300mm long flexible arm allows you to position the light where required and a compact on/off switch is integrated into the base of the light.

A plastic cover on the base of the unit un-clips to reveal a sturdy steel mounting plate with fixing holes, and connection is via flying leads (+ve to red, -ve to black).

Suitable for use with 12v systems in motorhomes, caravans, campervans, horseboxes, 4x4s and commercial vehicles.

Designed and manufactured in the UK.

Fixings not included.

Excellant product, not yet installed but checked out good valve for money. very impressed with the way white/red switch is done.

Expensive light

Haven't wired the light in yet, but the main problem I found was the light was facing into the wall. This is obviously a common problem as another review shows the same issue. You can force the metal stem around, but it still doesn't sit right. Looks like I'll just have to turn it upside down when fitting.


Hi, We are sorry to hear about your issues. This light is designed to be mounted in the downward or side-on position which would have the lens facing a downward position. We will review our product page details to see if we need to make any changes to help future customers. If you are unhappy with the light still please contact our sales team who will endeavour to help.

Nice little reading light.
Easy to change from white to red light.
It is really quite bright in a dark environment, I would like to add a small variable resistor to dim it.

Good light for charts

The light appears well made and Hopefully it will stand up to the marine environment.

Excellent product

This map/chart light is a well-made product, very solid and looks impressive, the light output is exceptionally good. Generally, well worth the money.

My only negative comments are very minor:
1) packaging wasn't great, the light was rattling-around a box which was a bit too big for it, which may cause damage. The light had no protective wrapping on it in the box.
2) No instructions or notes of any sort provided
3) the flip-out red cover which provides your red night-lighting isn't the easiest of things to use, especially if like me you have large fingers with no long fingernails - It needs a lip on the end of it to help move it up and down more easily (it's rather stiff on mine) and is barely visible once you've switched back to normal daylight lighting
4) the plastic cover which houses the switch feels a bit brittle/flimsy, and could be improved upon
5) the orientation of my light was the wrong way, so it was facing the bulkhead i'd screwed it to. It wasn't easy to turn the light around 180degrees without feeling i was going to break it

Aside from those minor points, it is exceptionally bright and makes chart-work at night an absolute pleasure. Only two wires to connect, which could't be easier. Well worth the money, but some minor touches would make it absolutely perfect.

Perfect light

We live on a narrowboat and this 12 volt led light comes in very uselful
We installed this light unit onto the wall above my chair so i can do my art work clearly.
The light shines brightly and very direct, and with the flexible neck it can be moved up out of the way when not in use.
It was easy to wire in and install.
Very good light unit indeed
