LED Lightbulbs - super efficient light bulbs

  • Hindi ko pa na try un 9W na Omni, un 6W and 3W puti sya


    Medyo pale white yung kulay comparable nxtled.

    Yung bulb na 9watts pagtumagal magkaka cracks yung plastic exterior.
  • Yung bulb na 9watts pagtumagal magkaka cracks yung plastic exterior.

    yung plastic part sa LED bulbs are prone to discolor or brittle sa tagal unless kung yung source plastic nun is of higher quality hinde dapat nag-crack kahit pundi ng LED bulb

    however glass based cover sa LED by time hinde kasing grabe humihina yung light efficiency kesa sa plastic ones in the case kung matibay ang LED driver and light area is concerned pero downside nito ay fragile
  • nagkakaroon nga ng cracks yung omni, malapit sa base. 9w
  • well this is the first time I have heard of any branded LED bulb getting cracks or becoming yellowish
  • So should I go for "general use" then?

    probably

    Sam ga binanggit mo for general use, halos same lang ba sila ng performance?

    check the ratings on the box to be sure


    Or pinakamaganda ang NXLed?

    check the price and the ratings. although nxled is the only brand which has dual color and multi mode (to use a led flashlight term) bulbs. multi mode means adjustable brightness, 100%, 50%, 25%, 12.5%


    Di ba may promo ang Firefly ngayon?

    ewan
  • Guys,

    Mapapalitan ko pa kaya tong Ges 9w bulb ko ? Napalitan na ito before pero nasira ulilt. Pasok parin sa 2 year warranty, pwede paba replace ng handyman ?

    Yung isa 1st time lang nasira, pero umiilaw kaso parang naging dark bluish yung ilaw. Mahal pa naman nito, nasa 400+ before.

    Dalawa pala na GES bulb yung papalitan ko this weekends.
  • Nakapagpawarranty ako last week sa ace hardware busted na yung isang NextLED na dimmable. Kinuha resibo ko. Pero sabi naman pwede mag claim kahit yung picture lang basta naka print na pag pupunta kayo.

    @gaLj
    Balitaan mo kami sa claim mo. Para ma confirm kung yung warranty ba ay once only or for the whole warranty year coverage.

    Sa handyman, mag-issue sila ng new receipt pagnareplace.

    Update ko kayo. Sa friday ko papalitan.

    Nakakainis yung 9w nila, 3-6 hours a day ko lang buksan. Wala pang 1 year na sila after na palitan. Yung 5 firefly's ko umaabot ng 10-12 a day for over 2 years na, wala namang akong issues.

    Yes. 20% Off sa Ace Hardware hanggang Aug. 31

  • bought 2 GES 99.75 peso 300 lumen 3.5w e15 bulbs




    one has a small defect. turn it upside down and the white plastic thingie around the LED emitters falls down. fortunately it falls back when you turn it right side up. But it still works since my chandeliers have the bulb pointing up

    so lesson learned, always shake a new bulb upside down

    manufacturing/production fail yan.... either umaasa sila sa design ng case without adhesive or kung meron mang adhesive hinde lahat nilalagay sa production run
  • Update ko lang.

    Napapalitan ko yung GES na 9w (2 year warranty) sa Handyman. Pangalawang palit na. Kaso pinalitan ng cheap ng 9w. Phase-out na raw 7 and 9 watts na may 2 year warranty. Mag-expire warranty pala sakin sa Sept 4 2016.

    Pwede magpapalit twice as long as walang burnt. physical or water damage and with receipt.

    ----

    Yung 40k hours nila na bulb. Tumagal lang na 2 year and 1 month. More than 18K burning hours (24/7). Pinalitan din naman agad.

  • So mukhang hindi tlaga naaabot ng GES yung mga rating ng bulbs nila?
