Yes these are rated for outdoors. The only problem I see is them being stolen...
I don't care if someone steals a $0.25 bulb, I'd be pissed if it is a $15 bulb.

Once in while the electric company subsidises the price of cfl bulbs and you can then buy them at cheaper prices. I haven't seen this with leds. Are their prices ever subsidised like cfls are?

Yes, however their life may be diminished in enclosed fixtures that are exposed to direct sunlight in really hot weather. These bulbs have heat sinks, they have to be able to dissipate the heat to work properly over the long term.

Yes, but the LED bulbs have to be certified energy star. This takes times to do. So in a year most of these bulbs will probably all have utility rebates.

5000K is annoyingly white.
I prefer 5000K white over 2700K.

The Cree bulbs, unlike many other LEDs, look very "normal", It would require someone to take a very close look, be familiar with LEDs, or know that you have them to bother. And even then... stealing a light bulb?

I'm still waiting for someone to explain why this is a "slick deal". It's a great investment for the correct uses because it's the best LED bulb on the market, but the price is no different than what it was when released a couple months ago. This is just the regular price for this bulb.

That's like debating that purple is a nicer color than green. It's a matter of preference. Objectively, 5000K is broader spectrum, more like sunlight, and is described as "whiter". 2700K is "warmer", more yellowish, and not as close to natural sunlight spectrum... but many people prefer it, probably because it's what most are used to with traditional incandescent bulbs. If you're looking to replace a "normal" bulb in a lamp, you likely want 2700K, but if you prefer the full spectrum, are putting a bulb outdoors or in a space like a garage, 5000K might be more appealing to you.

Yes agreed. It is also exactly why I made the post, to show how people had difference preferences since I find the traditional 2700K annoyingly yellow similar to how the other poster commented on annoyingly white 5000K. I wish Cree made a 3500K bulb option, so I can avoid using 2700K altogether.

In for the 6-pack of 2700k's. CREE has the best LED fixtures in the lighting industry in commercial applications - pretty solid price ($13.3 after tax) per light with the 6-pack. Thanks

It is also slightly less efficient. 9.5Watts vs 9 Watts for the 5000K. Seems to be nature of all LEDs, more efficient for whiter color.

Calculate the hours it will last and then the savings in energy costs versus what you're replacing. The only time it's unlikely to pay off is if you are replacing a CFL that isn't used much. In that case, you might be better off waiting. However, CFLs have lots of disadvantages, as do other LEDs, so for many uses, this is the most cost-efficient option out there without making trade-offs.

That said, no one has answered my earlier question regarding why this is a "slick deal". This is just the regular price for these bulbs that they've been available for since their release a few months ago.

So I actually measured CREE bulbs on a Kill-A-Watt meter. My 9W rated 5000K bulb is registering at 10W. Its been bugging me. IT might only seem like 1 extra watt, but that 10% higher that specifications.

It might be the lamp I tested it in, but I have some (new) CFLs that are coming inline or below their rated wattage. Can anyone who has the time and curiousity confirm that the CREE bulbs are using 9W like they should and that my measurements are off.

OK... For my rental property:

1x hallway / common area light

CFL:
13W / 1000W = 0.013kW x 24 hours x 30 days = 9.36kWh/month.
assuming $0.20/kWh --> $1.872/month

LED (Cree 40W equivalent):
6W / 1000W = 0.006 x 24 hours x 30 days = 4.32kWh/month
assuming $0.20/kWh --> $0.864/month

Difference = $1.008/month

CFL Bulb Cost = $2.00
LED Bulb Cost = $10.00

Pay back period for LED compared to CFL = 8 months.

After that, LED wins until it burns out. Keeping in mind LED will last longer than CFL (lifespan), so we can +cost of CFL replacements along the way.

For residential applications we also have:


- Instant on (good for bathroom, garage, desk lamp, bedroom) especially for people like me in NorthEast during winter when thermostat = 68-70*F.
- No mercury when broken
- Longer lifespan
- Less heat/BTUs put into ambient air to be cooled during summer months...


For example :-D...

This is not a slick deal at all. That's why you wont find someone who will give a good answer to your question.
