LED Lightbulbs - super efficient light bulbs




  • Finally you are dead. Meet your replacement

    Phillips 10.5w, 1055 lumens, php 399, 2 year warranty

    Rewired the fixture, removed old one and added a simple e27 socket. Chose this one because larger surface area means its a little less nakakasilaw compared to the test bulb (a normal sized omni 800 lumen 9 watt). Omni had a 299 peso similar spherical bulb but it was smaller diameter and higher wattage (around 12) for similar lumens.


    And I needed omnidirectional light, otherwise i would have gotten something flat to concentrate light downwards. Omni has some bulbs with this shape


  • yung florescent di lang 32 watts yun, pag sinama pa yung wattage ng ballast nasa 50 plus watts power consumption din, kahit palitan mo pa 4 na 10.5 led mas tipid pa din, baka mabulag ka pa sa sobrang liwanag :D

    as Megasyxx mentioned... yung Circular FL tube is as nasty than a 40w FL tube if you use a Magnetic Ballast with Starter

    sana meron ganito style na LED

  • sana meron ganito style na LED


    the one I saw was close to that shape, not as tall though

    anyway, here's a new LED bulb that simulates the flickering light of a wooden torch

  • Asking opinion mga paps!

    I've been using this cheapo type LED tube for almost 2yrs! and I still have spare lying around... bumili kasi ako ng mga extra spare since it's my first time trying this brand and at the same time may SALE yung Hardware store.

    naisipan ko lang lagyan yung Shoe Rack ng 2 of this from side-to-side (vertical) tapos nag lagay ako ng on/off switch at siguro bihira ko din siya i-ON! hindi pa siya permanent, naka double tape lang kasi baka maisipan kong gawin horizontal position... 3layers yung shoe rack and each rows pwede pagkasyahin 3pair of shoes tapos height or clearance ng each shelves from one another is 10inch tall.

    Since I already have spare of these led tube, eto nalang kaya gamitin ko or Mas maganda ba bumili nalang ako ng LED strip for the shoerack? may inverter pa ba yun? gusto ko sana pwede direct 220volts at pwede i-series yung connection!

    Balak ko din sana i-connect siya sa closet cabinet. sa taas ng shoerack cabinet, dun nakalagay yung mga damit... magbutas nalang ako para sa wiring pataas papunta sa clothing... meron ng existing light yung para sa mga damit... magnetic switch siya na battery type yung nabibili sa japan store... mahina siya, but visible enough for me to see in the dark!

    So, ano mas maganda ilagay sa closet cabinet para sa mga hanging clothes ko... yung existing LED Tube? (pics posted) or buy nalang ng LED strip for the clothes and shoerack? bihira ko din siya gamitin, but it's nice to have a lighting setup...

    Kung LED strip, what brand and specs will you recommend and any idea sa price? by meter or set/kit ba siya kapag binile...

    Salamat sa mga sasagot!
