I use both around the house.  I have the LED things in wall lights and
table lights around the house.  They are a bit small for general use.

They are more focused on 110v to replace standard incandescent but have a
few 12v.

Not sure i'm ready to spend $0 on one light bulb

Exactly. 520 lumens is no a lot of light for general lighting.

But the LED trick is to focus the light into a smaller spot in order to get
the lumens up and make it at least useful.

      Nominal Lumens Watts Rated Life
      Cool White: 520
      Soft White: 398
      Warm White: 355 7 50,000 hours


355 lumens is even less light. For a boat these may be OK for spot lighting.
