Standard A19 Clear B22 Warmwhite
This was the bulb we opted to put into the childrens room.
I think most parents know the inability that children have for turning off a light when they have finished.
Our powerbills are huge and we think this was a contributing factor so the chance to be able to know that each time it was left on, wasn’t going to incur us a huge fortune, was a big relief.
Having an extremely dark lounge space, we opted to put the 3UM into our lounge to enable the best use of light. We have 4 lights in our lounge but they are situated around the outside walls of the room and are inside shades meaning the lighting is always going to be dimmed.
Obviously night times are spent in this room so to have 4 lights operating can get expensive, but to reduce the bulbs would mean an even darker room which wasn’t particularly ideal when trying to do work at night time. The 3U are a brighter bulb with the3UL replaces over 120w and the 3UM replaces around 90w
The 2U series offers around a 60w replacement, so slightly dimmer than the 3U series but was great for places like our hallway, bathroom etc where we needed a good light source, but it didn’t have to be a particularly bright one. I loved that it seemed to be quite a ‘soft’ light which was great for night times when you get up but don’t want to be hit with an intensely bright light.
So overall ? I loved that these lights could just fit anywhere that previous bulbs have been and could be just put in like a normal bulb.
Not knowing a lot about LED, I had always presumed that LED lights were brighter than other lights but that wasn’t the case with these bulbs (which is a good thing)
Another big plus for me was that they don’t get as hot as other bulbs. Sure, they get warm – but they’re not generating a heat that can’t be touched so should they be touched by little hands somewhere along the way, there wont be any damage done.
I did find with the A19′s that when we turned off the lights, they glowed for a little while afterwards (something the kids actually liked) but whereas they take a little while to totally turn off, turning them on is instant. None of this ‘warmup’ business, the light is at it’s brightest straight away.
After having them for not quite 2 months, I did notice a drop in our powerbill. Actually it was quite a significant drop which although I believe is partly because of the longer daylight hours, but I also believe that the bulbs are a big contributing factor and I LOVE that.
I guess my only negative would be the initial outlay to purchase the bulbs but once you have them, you know you’re going to get many many MANY hours of cheap lighting – and that has to be good.
I’d rate them a solid 9/10 with them only losing a point for the cost involved.
HUGE thank you to ShineWe for the chance to see how great these bulbs work
