LED Lightbulbs - super efficient light bulbs

  • OK pa naman Sir. Di Sir inaalam ko lang ano ba best talaga na magfit. Ngayon kasi tinry ko yung 3W na bulb ko kasya naman sya maluwag pa kaya naisip ko lagyan ko din splitter para if ever di pa maliwanag yung 3W eh lagyan ko pa isa pang 3W kasi malaki naman yung cover. Alanganin lang siguro na higher watts kabit ko na iisa.
  • Bad trip itong N*led 10w dimmable bulb. Naka dalawang palit na ko ... ayun 2 na entries sa receipt eh wala pang 1 year ito last May 2016 lang twice na napundi. Malamang mapupuno ng entries itong receipt bago mag out of warranty hehe.
  • Bakit may entries pa? Saan ka bumili?
    Ako kasi photocopy lang ng resibo (printout form jpg) iniiwan ko lang sa kanila pagpalit. Nakakadalawang palit na rin ako. Two years naman warranty kahit ilang palit daw. Pwede na imo.
  • Yaan po yung 3x dimmable mga sir? Nagtingin din ako nyan nun weekend, na intriga ako. Medyo madame palang may poblema sa nxleds na yan.
  • @roceanoz
    NIlagyan ng date replaced na entry ung orig receipt sir hindi ko pa kasi na photocopy to. Sa Ace ko nabili. Sa ngayon may 2 dates na nakalagay sa receipt - May 2016 nabili then palit nung Oct and this Jan.

    @supermanster
    Uu yun nga 3x dimmable 10w bro. Ito kasi first na gumamit ako ng N*led and dimmable pa.
  • Ah orig receipt pala dala mo. Sa akin kasi naka save yung jpeg. Tapos nag print ako ng copy then bigay ko kanila kapalit ng bagong ilaw. Kaliwaan lang wala nang ibang gagawin, no fuss. Hanggang April 2018 kahit masira ulit papalitan nila.

    Yes, dimmable sa akin yung mas malaki watts. Ok na ako sa sistema ng warranty. Dun ko nilagay sa laging ginagamit. Yung isa sa hallway na halos walang patayan. Pag matutulog naka dimmest setting.
  • Hi,

    Nakasale pala sa ace hardware sm north sa saturday. From 10 am to 12 noon meron pang plus 10 percent yung may sm advantage card. Nagcanvas na rin kasi ako ng led. Madami akong nakitang bulb dun na bundled na discounted like sa Philips and sa saturday pupunta ako kasi mau another discount pa.
    Anyway di pa ako makapagdecide kunt anong magandang downligth/recessed light na 5 watts. Meron kasing pinakita sa akin sa Philips yung case lang(around 159 yata) sa downloght and nalalagyan ng led bulb and meron ding 'disposable'

    Almost same lang price wala pang 400.
    Napansin ko lang and sabi rin ng taga Philips na mas maganda light distribution/diffusion ng disposable.

    Ano ba masusuggest ng mga gumamit na ng recessed light dito?
    Also, gusto ko rin ng circular na ceiling light ng Philip na nasa 2k for 12 watts. Hindi ko alam kung sulit since yung ibang brand like firefly 12 watts din and 990 lang.
  • Also, gusto ko rin ng circular na ceiling light ng Philip na nasa 2k for 12 watts. Hindi ko alam kung sulit since yung ibang brand like firefly 12 watts din and 990 lang.


    firefly, omni and GES are IMHO good quality. Okay they might not last as long as phillips but they make up for it with lower price. Look at the box kung ilang hours ang lifespan. Most likely half price pero more than half ang lifespan so sulit
  • Yes I decided na sa GES na. Maganda nga feedback na mga nabasa ko dito sa tpc nung nagbackread. Thanks.
  • just make sure that walang ground sa circuits. pag meron, GES lamps glow weakly when the switch is off


    and madaming GES na style na may butas




    papasukan ng insect pag used outside

    otherwise GES is good. Super easy to RMA
  • GES bulbs nearing the end of their lifespan tend to partially die meaning a few emitters conk out while others stay lit. Compared to other brands that totally die out .. just my observation.

    I have a 7w bulb that's now 6 years old and still usable but with some emitters busted on one side.
  • Bought omni na lang nakasale kasi Kay Handy 20%. Test ko muna 3years warranty daw pero wala nakalagay sa box. So far parang OK sya. Mas maliliit bulbs compared to GES. And about the circular LED, we opted to replace na lang the whole ceiling light with one na may E27. Napagiwanan nako sa balita na meron naman pala mga ganun. Hehe. Mas madali pa magpalit in case mapundi yung ilaw.
  • GES 5 year warranty series not only has an exceptionally long warranty, they have great lumen per watts. 100 lumens per watts for new models. Only a few other bulbs can do that.

    if there is no problem with grounding, if its inside (few insects), and the bulb is on for long periods of time consider high lumen/watt bulbs
  • Matbay talaga GES. Sa mga binili ko wala pa nasira. Yung oldest ko 3years na yata. Dun kasi sa Handy na pinuntahan ko 2years na lang warranty na meron sila. Wala yung mga longer warranty.
  • Another GE led bulb died on me, this is the 2nd one and mukhang bagsak sa longevity, I was expecting more from this brand.

    GE 7w died on me months ago after 1 year of use, but itong bago 10w died after 5 months!!! Hindi naman mahirap magpa warranty ng GE sa Ace, but hassle lang...and never ko na experience yung ganitong kabilis na deads sa Firefly.
  • Sa mga binili ko wala pa nasira.


    me isa lang but in fairness, the part of the house it was in suffered electrical problems, shorts, breaker tripping due to corrosion and water leaking though the roof
  • Meron bang circular bulb yung ges na dimmable either e27 or yung diretso kabit na?
    Pag tingin ko kasi sa site ng GES mukhang wala silang dimmable.
    Meron ba kayong recommended brand na dimmable both circular and bulb type?
    Yung circular-type kasi(either e27 or not) sa living area ko plan ilagay and yung bulb naman sa kwarto.

    Thanks.

  • I have never seen a GES dimmable bulb tapos circular pa.

    NXLed has dimmable normal shape led bulbs, I dont know of any other brand na meron dimmable

  • Yes nakita ko nga meron silang circular na dimmable.
    Nxled na lang kung wala talagang other choice. Punta na lang ako ng wilcon
    para macheck din. Una kong choice is philips pero based nga sa mga nabasa
    ko dito madami rin palang ok na brand especially GES na durable and reasonably priced.

    Thanks sa pagsagot.
  • found some super cheap chinese LED bulbs, and in a multi level airconditioned with escalator store at that.

    15 pesos for 3w
    18 pesos for 5w

    if you ever wondered what all the components of a LED bulb circuit board were, here's a video showing how to make a LED bulb using basic electronic components. LED filaments, resistors, capacitors, etc

  • widely available na ba yan locally or on selected hardware store palang... any idea sa price?

    ...dati akala ko si Gadget Addict ay nasa foreign country... pero may mga reviews at price tag ng item ay locally....
  • ^

    Andito sya. Minsan nasa ibang bansa yata. Kadalasan nga dati CDR-KING nirereview nya dati.
  • yeah, nakita ko rin yung mga CDR-King product reviews nya at yung one time na nagpunta siya sa Ali-Mall Cubao....

    recently bought the Firefly Dust to Dawn E27 bulb for testing muna....
  • the problem with the cdrking light sensor socket is
    1. nasira after a few months
    2. too insensitive. Example, gusto ko off by 7am, on at 7pm. Nag off sya 8am, on 5pm
  • meron ako Xiaomi Yeelight LED kaso kailangan bukas din yun wifi router ko, akala ko sa firmware ng led ko nakastore yun on/off timer schedule.
