Halogen bulbes life span

the Lundstroms <linneasail@...>

Untitled DocumentWe have had "Linnea" fore about 9 months (hull #366). We have to change our interior light bulbs all the time (particular the small halogen ones). Even though we try to not have all the lights on, we end up switching out about 2-3 light bulbs per week.

When we talked to Amel about it a while back, they explained that the problem is with the "Smart Charger" (an option we bought) because it pushes the voltage up to 28V frequently (when you are on shore power) which is to much for the halogen light bulbs. This makes lots of sense, but it's still frustrating to switch out light bulbs all the time.

Does anybody else have the same problem?
