$6.50 shipping, from Figi! Are you kidding?
Further to our attempts at balancing the energy-budget equations, we decided to pony up some more cash (Paypal virtual cash to be more exact) for some low-draw LED lighting. I mentioned in a previous comment how I had read some very unsatisfactory reviews of a particular brand’s offerings of LED replacement bulbs. On the other end of the satisfaction scale is Bebi Electronics, who are located in Fiji. Virtually everything I have read about this company and their products has been positive. Their quality is supposed to be excellent, their prices are fair and they offer a lifetime warrantee! How can you beat that?
Although I have yet to handle any of their lights I can tell you that their company rep. Michael, who sent me a personalized email within minutes of receiving my order, is on the ball! And get this… they charge flat rate shipping of $6.50 from Fiji! I don’t know how that is even possible but it sure sets the bar high for any of their competitors. We ordered an Owl replacement for our masthead anchor light, and a similar backup (or primary) anchor light which we will hang nearer to deck level. Both of these were ordered with photocells so that we don’t have to manually turn them on. We also order three of their interior strip lights to replace the stock fluorescents inside Katana. Hopefully this will stop those amps from flying away quite so freely!
