- Many LED bulbs have highly directional light concentrated to the front of the bulb, whereas the light from an incandescent bulb is omni-directional.
- Lesser-known LED bulb makers tend to exaggerate their `incandescent-equivalent' ratings. For example, a 40W incandescent bulb produces around 480 lumens of light. But most LED bulbs that claim to be `40W equivalent' only produce 300-400 lumens of light.
- Older generation LED bulbs are usually quite bulky, so they may not fit in some light fixtures designed for common household A19 bulbs.
- Most LED bulbs on the market are not compatible with TRIAC-dimmer switches designed for incandescent bulbs. If you accidentally put a non-dimmable LED bulb into a dimmer-controlled fixture, it will flicker or even become damaged.
The Feit BPAG500DM/LED A19 Semi Omni LED bulb is the first product I found that solved all the limitations of my earlier generation LED bulbs:
- It has an omni-directional, evenly distributed light output.
- It produces 500 lumens of total light output, and is correctly marketed as a `40W-equivalent' bulb.Read more ›
Put all three bulbs on a circuit with an "electric eye" on at dusk and off at dawn on the outside of my garage. When these bulbs lit they all flickered for about 45 seconds then stabilized and provided an awesome light with great color temperature. All three of them. Never had this problem with incandescent or CFL bulbs. I did some quick research and found there have not been any problems, that I could find with a quick search, with these bulbs or LED bulbs in general when controlled by an electric eye. I am assuming that this is not normal behavior.
I live in northern New York on the Canadian Border and yesterday was the summer solstice. These bulbs burned maybe a total of 7.5 hours last night. Civil twilight dusk (around when the bulbs turned on was around 9:27pm on 6/21) and Civil Twilight Dawn (when the bulbs turned off) was around 4:38am on 6/22... so about 7.5 hours of being illuminated.
So after 7.5 hours one of the bulbs has already burned itself out.
I was expecting around 25,000 hours as the packaging states.
I emailed customer service and they replied that I needed to call them. I called them today (7/23/13) waited 10 minutes and was asked what kind of fixture the bulb was in. I told them an outside light fixture on that is controlled by a photocell light sensor (dusk till dawn). She informed me that the "photocell is the same as a dimmer" and that the photocell is always giving a little current to the light all day long and that is why it burned out after 7.5 hours. I told her that I disagreed and a dimmer dims the light and my photocell turns the lights on at dusk and off at dawn.Read more ›
Let me start with the positives: they are nearly identical to the form factor of the old bulbs they replace, enough that you shouldn't worry about fit. The color tone is okay. They're very efficient, and they're rated to last at least 25,000 hours in a fully enclosed fixture. This leads to a lifetime ROI of 500% or greater, as well as saving you 10+ trips up a ladder for each one you buy, and it fills a very sparsely populated market niche. If you want cost-effective replacements for all of your light bulbs for this summer, when LEDs achieve their highest rate of cost savings, this is your best and possibly your only good option. I have no regrets about dropping $300 on the whole batch. My math says I'll get that money back by next fall and keep saving for years to come.
Back to that color tone, though... it really is just OK. I wish there were something truly warm that did what these do, because I can't call them anything better than "lukewarm". If you're really picky about these things, spend $40+ each on the SWITCH bulbs (which, keep in mind, will still pay for themselves, but over a much longer period) or wait. I have a feeling I may be retrofitting my own house again in a couple of years, when these have paid for themselves and better ones are on the market. But that comes with the early-adopter territory, and it doesn't change my mind about the investment value. My second gripe is the packaging.Read more ›
