WANTED: LED BULB FOR ISOTHERM REFRIGERATOR

Has any one replaced the Isotherm 12 volt refrigerator inside light bulb with a LED?
The bulb inside reads MX 12V 3W and gets hot and uses too much juice so I took it out.
It is 38 mm or 1 1/2 " long but only 5mm or 3/16" wide "festoon looking" bulb. I can not find it on superbrightleds.com or ledlight.com.

Re: WANTED: LED BULB FOR ISOTHERM REFRIGERATOR

Would it be worth it Angel? They're fairly pricey and for the amount of time you have the door open I don't think I would worry about it. The other issue would be the cold and moisture resistance. I have yet to see the longevity of LED's yet. In the early years segments would fail but the technology has improved yet for the little savings in power I'm not too sure if I would go that way. On the other hand it would be a good test to see what they can take.

I just removed the bulb completely and didn't replace. I didn't see the need for light in the refrigerator and agree that it would be pulling too much electricity.
