Cannot be used in an enclosed fixture
on November 13, 2013
These bulbs cannot be used in an enclosed fixture. It's printed on the bulb itself, but not mentioned on the packaging (which shows an enclosed ceiling light fixture). I assume this is why so many people are reporting failed bulbs. Heat kills LED bulbs which is why they have "generous" heat sinks. I bought some of these locally at a steep discount but they are going back because for lack of a warning or recommendation (until I read the small print on the bulb itself after opening the package) I was hopeful they could be used in my enclosed fixtures. Below is a link to Feit's Spec Sheet that describes the types of fixtures suitable for this bulb. The Spec Sheet indicates the bulb is rated for a dry location but on the bulb it states it's rated for a damp location. Feit is scheduled to call me tomorrow and I have some pointed questions about their packaging.
