Features of the Labcraft LED light "Map Light"
The LED light, available in 12 volt and 24 volt, is optimized for use in the driver's cab. With its white light, it provides a good look into the depths of the glove compartment and is helpful as ambient lighting if something needs to be found in the dark around the driver and front passenger. By using red light, however, it is ideally suited to keep an eye on the map while driving.
With a switch integrated in the base, you can switch from the light of the normal LED light to the red light. The adjustable arm of the Labcraft Map Light is particularly robust and durable, the design simple and slim.
The lamp also shines with its extremely low power consumption. The connection is made via cabling in the base.
Why red light at all?
Bright light affects night vision. If the passenger needs a light source, the driver's eyes, which are set to darkness, are overwhelmed for a short time and have to adapt to the new light conditions. The same thing happens when you turn it off. If the bright light suddenly disappears, the eyes first have to adjust to the dark surroundings. In both cases, the assessment of the road and traffic deteriorates for short but important moments. In the entire time in between, a bright light source is irritating and causes annoying reflections in the windshield.
These irritations are largely reduced by red light.
