12 DC Compact Fluorescent Screw-in One Piece Lights


Please note, Montana Light has closed its doors and
all items on this page are limited to stock on hand.

These low voltage dc compact fluorescent lights are
very popular for alternative energy systems,  in back-up
lighting, marine / boating applications and are gaining
popularity for use in cabin / fishing huts.

The links on the left side of this page will take you to
each light we carry.

Everything priced on this page is in stock.

We ship Priority mail Monday through Saturday and
UPS Monday through Friday.

It is sad to say that after over a decade in business Montana Light,
formerly LIght It Technologies, is closing its doors.
This was a family business that pioneered off-grid low voltage lighting.
It was started by Don Smith, who passed away a few years ago, and
carried on by his daughter Carlene.
It has been our pleasure to sell their products since 2002.
Best of luck to you Carlene.

      
     Light It Technologies 12 volt dc compact fluorescent
     lights fit into a regular light bulb socket that has been wired for
     low voltage d.c.
     These economically priced compact fluorescent lights feature a
     permanent twin or triple fluorescent tube and offer an inexpensive way
     to get into 12 volt volt energy efficient lighting.
     Every light on this page has a Radio Frequency Interference
     suppressed ballast.
     The ballast in these lights is internally fused to protect the electronics
     if the battery(s) voltage runs too low.
     We use these in clamp-on portable work lights as well as in overhead sockets.

These are the only low voltage d.c. compact
fluorescent lights made in the U.S.A.

You will see a number of compact fluorescents offered for sale
with a German name, they are not made in Germany.

       When comparing fluorescent lights please consider the following:

     Quality
     Reliability
     Whether the ballasts are electronic or magnetic
     Temperature ranges in which they will operate - the ability to fire up
     in cold weather
     Sound levels - there are imported fluorescent lights being made
     today that will drive you to distraction with their buzz or whistle  
     Radio frequency interference - you don't want to see or hear interference
     from your lighting on electronic equipment.
     Will operate down to -30 degrees F.

     The quality of Montana Light / Light It Technologies products
     is top of the line.

     All of the compact fluorescent lights on this page have radio frequency
     suppressed ("P" or push/pull) inverter ballasts.

incandescent lights please click onto the following link:
