Low Energy C7 Replacement
on December 19, 2011
I was anxious to replace the relatively hot incandescent C7 bulbs in our individual window "electric" candles with LED's. I bought the Sylvania brand as well as unbranded LED's which were available in a greater color selection. The Sylvania's are fine; the bulb is however not frosted as it appears in the Amazon description, it is slightly cloudy, near clear plastic. The three LED elements are easily visible. It is billed as "daylight" in color, but has the blue-white cast common to LED's though not at all as severe as some. The LED's are far more durable than incandescents and of course are cool to touch.
None of the LED's, Sylvania or the unbranded models indicate any measurable wattage on the Kill A Watt P4400 meter, while a standard C7 bulb shows 12 watts.
The decision to buy the Sylvania bulbs should be largely based upon price and preference for the plain, untextured bulb surface over the diamond pattern common to unbranded bulbs. I definitely prefer the Sylvania bulb for night lights.
