Love it! I live on a boat so I am interested in anything and everything waterproof! Especially if it uses less electricity than standard lighting. Thanks for doing the research n this and sharing your findings with us.

Thanks, just LOVE them! I had one yellow LED light, just a little ball, which I used in so many ways. My 3 yr old granddaughter has it now, takes it to school with her as her toy. I would just adore to have these submersible ones and those great ice cube ones! Such a lot of color and fun.

Congrats on your win!
