$36 + free shipping w/ code SDPARLSH


These are larger bulbs than typical lambs, but they are also much more powerful. I have 1 of the similar shinning right along my 7w 'normal' one and light is much more powerful


dimmable ftw, e26 base means they fit almost any normal light, just make sure you allow for width on top.

Word of caution: 3000k is "warm" light. You probably don't want this in a work area, like a kitchen. These would work great in a living area or bedroom where you probably want a warmer light. For work areas you usually want something around 5000k.

Personally, I disagree completely. 3000k is a 'soft white', the perfect 'general purpose' color IMO. Just my opinion of course but anything higher than 4k is way too hospital, much less hospitable. I had some Phillips 5k's and decidedly hated them. 2700s are a bit too yellow so I run 3ks now and love them.

You just said the same thing he said, worded slighltly differently, imo. The color spectrum is good for general purpose (bedrooms, living/dining/family rooms) but not good for work areas where more much more light is needed (workshop, garage, kitchens).

In any event, these aren't good to use as standard bulb A type replacements that are omnidirectional. These use parabolic reflectors which makes it a concentrated, direct and narrow light, ie spot lights. These are made to be used for directional lighting in canned units, track lighting, recessed lighting...etc.

The comparison made by the OP is also not fair as a 15W PAR bulb should be much brighter than a 7W type A bulb as its more than double the wattage. Even at the same wattage, the focused light would be brighter but narrow compared to the less bright but MUCH more dispersed light output of a type A bulb. They're both made for totally different type of applications/lighting. Apples to Oranges kind of thing.

These are for outdoor motion lights, decent deal at $6.00 per bulb for a led. Generic bulb, so lifespan (reliability) is unknown.

That recommendation is pretty industry-standard for task lighting. 5500-6500k is what ouside daylight is, with 3500k being "neutral". This is why hospitals use 5000k or more...because it best mimics mid-day daylight when visibility is best. I wouldn't put those in a living room, but for a kitchen or garage I would want lighting that leans more towards the cool-side.

But, again, personal preference prevails. If you can't stand cool lighting, then by all means use a warmer light. I personally don't find it disturbing to have cooler light in my kitchen area with warmer light in the adjacent living areas. I also had my kitchen lights on dimmers so I could lower the brightness when I was entertaining so it wasn't TOO bright.

is there a good rule of thumb on wattage and/or lumens per square foot of coverage, taking ceiling height and number of light sockets into account?

I bought and installed 6 , they are a nice combination between yellow and hospital blue....they have a 40 degree beam, which makes a flood not a spot....
