I was pissed when the gub-mint outlawed selling high-wattage incandescent light bulbs and I actually stocked up and bought 100 of ’em. (Anyone want to buy them?). But the price of LED bulbs has come down and the quality has gone up over the past year. I purchased a bunch of these:
LE 12W E27 LED Bulb, Brightnest 75W Incandescent Bulbs Equivalent, Warm White, Medium Screw, Pack of 5 Units. (GET ‘EM HERE ON AMAZON!)
It was 39 bucks per 5 bulbs, they last 50,000 hours (!) Incandescent light bulbs last about 1000 hours.
The light color and feel on these is great, they barely get warm, they fit in a normal incandescent base, and a 12-watt LED is the same brightness as a 75-watt incandescent!
I bought one pack of five, and liked them so much, our whole house is using them now. They rock. I don’t recommend things I don’t love, and I love these bulbs.
