Serenity Wall Sconce Bulb

I am considering the addition of the wall sconce light fixture used in the Serenity models to my International CCD. But I'm wondering what kind of bulb this fixture can accommodate. Must it be an LED light or could it be a more traditional automotive incandescent bulb? Perhaps somone with one of the beautiful Serenity models could take a look and let me know? Many thanks!

The Lights in our Serenity are definitely designed around the led "bulbs" that they use.
For what it is worth, these particular led's are much "warmer" than others used in the interior...

Thanks for the pictures!

Bruce -- you're awesome. Thanks for the great pictures. That is definitely NOT a conventional automotive light bulb socket, eh?

My intended purpose is to use this light in the corner bedroom area of my International CCD 23' with the addition of a dimmer switch for night time reading. The overhead puck on the bottom of the cabinet is just too harsh and I prefer the light fixture to be behind my head instead of directly above it. I plan to use a dimmer switch with this as well. LEDs can be difficult to dim with the relatively new RV-type LED dimmers. I'm having an on-going problem with one of the factory installed dimmers that is mounted in the aluminum skin. It will come on intermittently on its own even when the toggle switch is in the off position. I suspect this is related to temperature and/or humidity. A similar switch mounted on an interior wood/laminate wall has never been a problem but it also is not subjected to the harsher temperature/humidity changes of a switch mounted on an outside wall.

Enough of that, I'm hijacking my own thread. . .

Thanks again for the pictures. Tells me exactly what I need to know. Looks like I'll have a retro-fit project on my hands.
