Customer Reviews

Our main bathroom is pretty small and has 3 sockets above the mirror.
Jae Rosemeyer
The 280 lumen bulb is a little brighter than a 40 watt incandescent globe bulb but not nearly as intense as the 400 lumen led 40 watt replacement I got at home depot.

Had I known this was an 80 lumen bulb, I wouldn't have wasted my time and money on it.

I picked this since my bathroom lights are of similar shape and size. I was fully aware that this is not going to be very bright, but since there are 6+ sockets there, I was not that concerned about individual brightness. When I first screwed this into my bathroom fixture, no light. I tried another socket elsewhere, no light either. Then I noticed that the plastic base is sitting on the edge of the socket. The neck (the screw portion that screw into the socket) is too short that the plastic base hits the edge of the socket. So, this may cause no contact at the base or I have a bad light. After trying almost all the light sockets in the house, I finally found one and finally, the light come on. It is indeed not very bright, more like a 15W incandescent and it can only fit into short socket....so beware of this. It cannot go into the bathroom socket that it is supposed to fill.

I found the same or similar bulb, same price, at Home Depot with 130 lumens instead of 80. I have spent over $1,200 on LEDs for my home and the best lesson so far is to ignore the "replaces xx Watt" and look at the lumens. It works as advertised.

Bought a three pack of these at Sam's (On the free day) for my bathroom just to try and they work great.
I have six light fixture and I can hardly tell they a brightness difference between a standard 40 watt frosted bulb and these.
I have tried other LED lamps which hardly lasted a month but these are holding up great.
I will be buying more of these.

I needed to reduce the power consumed on a particular circuit so as not to trip the circuit breaker. (This same circuit has an infrared sauna.) I replaced three of six incandescent bulbs in an over-the-sink bathroom fixture with these decorative LED bulbs. To my eye, these 2.8 watt bulbs provide as much light as the incandescents they replace. I also had the issue where I thought a couple of the bulbs didn't work. However, the problem was caused by the bulb coming in contact with the fixture rim before the bulb had made proper contact with the copper tab in the middle of the light fixture. The "problem" was easily fixed by pulling the copper tab in the middle of the light fixture out a little before inserting the bulb. MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF to the fixture before you try this!

The specs on the Amazon page say 50,000 hour life while the package says 12,000 hour life. 12,000 hours are still a lifetime for me, so that's not a problem. The specs on the package say 80 lumens. That would be useful information for any lighting product.

The only negative is that it took a lot of research to make sure I was ordering the right bulb. Now that I know it's the right bulb for this application, I'll order more.

A "60-watt equivalent" (14 watt) fluorescent bulb, such as the Philips 22114, is rated at 800 lumens. Another 60-watt equivalent bulb, the Philips 409904 Dimmable AmbientLED, is 12.5 watts and 800 lumens.

This 2.8 watt bulb is rated at 80 lumens. That is, it creates roughly 1/10th of the light of a "60-watt equivalent" bulb, and uses double the energy (per lumen) in doing so.

(For comparison, the GE G25 25 watt incandescent vanity bulbs are rated at 210 lumens.)

Had I known this was an 80 lumen bulb, I wouldn't have wasted my time and money on it. It's not much brighter than a night light...

Growing tired of having to replace CFL bulbs or finding the generic incandescent bulb lights -- tried out these led ones, they fit perfectly and give the equivalent of a 20-25W bulb each. They also look really nice. If they are truly only using a tiny amount of watts and will last nearly forever comparatively speaking, then they will be a steal and a must have. One less chore around the house if I never have to worry about wanting or needing to replace them going forward. My son did note that they were less bright than the previous bulbs in the kids bathroom, but then his mom had put 23w cfl's there previously and that isn't a fair comparison.

I agree with the "almost as bright as a 40W" comment. This is mounted in an constant-on hallway application, and it really throws a lot of guide light. The heat is very low in the fixture too, so that's a relief from the usual.

I have other LED bulbs with similar wattage and this is much dimmer than those... Good for mood lighting, but not good if you want functionality...
