I can get hold of both the Perei lamps (as used by LR) and the Trucklite 95mm lamps easily in the UK if anyone is interested.

Not apples to apples because 1 lamp from Truck-Lite in the UK (still in the UK) costs us about that (15 pounds) on our wholesale account, so be sure you know what you are getting. Some are sealed, some are not. The Perei LED units failed in short order when we tested them years ago.

Paddock is carrying the WIPAC NAS LED water proof sealed units. (with a 12 month warranty ) The difference may be in the # of LEd each light has . Typically the more LED's per unit the more expensive they are. Not sure how many Trucklite uses, WIPAC appears to be using 15.

Those ones on the Paddock site ( http://www.paddockspares.com/brands/...ype-lamps.html ) sure look like the ones that RN is offering ( http://www.roversnorth.com/store/p-1...-led-rear.aspx ) . . .

Has anyone tried out the ones RN is selling, Are they any good? They seem really cheap in comparison with the other LEDs being sold, or maybe those are gust grossly overpriced.

The issue of led lights is just as Mike said; apples to oranges. The two criteria is led count and watertightness. The two major US brands, Trucklite & Grote offer most lights in a low led and high led count with a price to match. The US versions which are larger than the Euro lights are designed for grommet fitting in trucks. Because of that they are usually exposed at the back and in rough service, so they are built and designed to withstand the elements. That goes for the connectors as well. The majority of the Euro lights are not designed for that use and can suffer accordingly. So look closely at what you are buying. It's better to just go with a good led bulb than a cheap led light, imho.

There's more to it than that. There are also standard output and high-intensity output LED's so count is not necessarily all that matters. What really matters is Lumen. Lumen is the measure of the total "amount" of visible light emitted by a source. If the retailer is serious about their product (military, commercial, etc) they will list the lumen output for each light that they sell. And if they really know what they're talking about then they will specify the degree in raw lumens and effective lumens. raw lumens is the theoretical output (this is how most retailers list it because it is a higher number and it sounds like a lot) and the raw lumens is what you get after heat loss, lens dispersion etc. That is, the amount of light you actually get. There's some really great explanations here if you want to get into it: http://store.marinebeam.com/coouinlu.html

I didn't want to get that technical, but you are correct. I would still say, however that for the applications on this board, weathertighness and ruggedness are the primary concern.
