12V Dash Mount LED Map Light w/red and white light

I always like to have a good map light handy, and I really like this one: (No affiliation, blah, blah, blah.)

Aqua Signal LED Chart Light with switch for Red or White Light (12 V)

http://www.amazon.com/Aqua-Signal-Chart ... B0038JJ1O6

It has a 12" flexible arm, both white and red LED for night vision, low power consumption and can be mounted vertically, horizontally, or in-between. I really like the red light because I can leave it on while I am driving (or parked) if I want to see around the immediate area. It is still pretty new, and the gooseneck part is holding up so far.

I like the red and white light option. Is the light hard wired through the base, or through a 12V cigarette lighter plug?

I've had one of these in my work backpack for years. It's great for night driving to see what's right around you without turning on the overheads in the various trucks I drive.

The one I have in my SMB (that I got thru the link) is hard wired into the dash.

It is hard-wired. I have this one too and I like it. The white is nice and bright and makes for a perfect reading light. The red is great for lighting up the inside at night without disturbing my sleeping wife.
