In the fishing vessel lighting solutions, the choice between LED lights and Metal Halide (MH) lights is pivotal, with implications for operational efficiency, cost savings, and environmental impact. In this article, we make a comparison of technical specifications of both lighting options to showcase the advantages of 111 LED lights over Metal Halide lights.

Wattage and Fuel Consumption:

111 LED Light: 700W

Metal Halide (MH) Light: 1500W

The energy consumption capacity of 111 LED 700W lights is approximately 50% of MH 1500W lights, resulting in substantial fuel savings for fishermen. By opting for 111 LED lights, fishing vessel owners can save up to 50% on the cost of diesel used to run vessel generators, translating to significant financial savings ranging from 100 million VND to billions of VND per year (USD 4,000-40,000/year).

Brightness and Illuminance:

111 LED lights provide concentrated light with deep illumination and instant brightness, tailored to the demanding requirements of marine operations. In contrast, MH lights provide diffused light with shallower illumination, requiring 2-5 minutes to reach maximum brightness. The sharp concentration of light offered by 111 LED lights ensures superior visibility and operational efficacy, especially in challenging maritime environments.

Space Occupation and Weight:

111 LED lights boast a compact size, simple wiring, and lightweight design (4.8kg), minimizing space occupation and facilitating ease of installation. Conversely, MH lights feature a complex build with three interconnected parts and a heavier weight (13kg), posing logistical challenges and increasing installation complexity.

Voltage and Frequency:

111 LED lights operate within a wider voltage and frequency range (120-277VAC, 40-60Hz) compared to MH lights (180-240VAC, 40-52Hz), enhancing convenience and versatility. This broader compatibility makes 111 LED lights suitable for a diverse range of vessels and generators.


111 LED lights come with a 24-month warranty in Vietnam. A 26-month warranty from shipment date will be applied for non-Vietnamese markets. The 111 LED lights have a lifespan of 4-5 years without brightness deterioration, ensuring long-term reliability and performance consistency. In contrast, MH lights offer only a 6-month warranty and are prone to breakage after one year of use, with brightness deteriorating rapidly over time.

User-Friendly and Environmentally Friendly:

111 LED lights do not emit UV rays and do not contain mercury, making them safe for both users and the environment. Conversely, MH lights emit UV rays and contain mercury, posing risks to human health and environmental sustainability.

The above technical comparison between 111 LED lights and Metal Halide lights underscores the superior performance, cost-effectiveness, and environmental friendliness of 111 LED lights for marine lighting applications.

Mr. Trinh Dang Quan, COO of 111 LED Lights Co. shares: “With their energy efficiency, durability, and user-friendly design, 111 LED lights are the optimal choice for illuminating the seas, driving progress towards a brighter, more sustainable future for the maritime industry.
