5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent warm white non-dimmable LED bulb, 75 lumen per Watt, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AURAGLOW 9w LED B22 Bayonet Light Bulb, Warm White, 806 lumen, 60w EQV
These Auraglow 8W B22 LED bulbs produce a solid 600 lumen of warm white light instantly from being switched on, a great improvement on the 13W and 15W CFLs they have replaced in our house.

The bulb is well made with a substantial and smoothly finned heat-sink on the rear surface of the bulb which enables it to run much cooler than many of the competitive LED bulbs. It is best fitted with a good air circulation around it because LEDs do not have a long life if allowed to get too hot.

The light is mainly downward from the hanging bulb, which is fine for my use. It is very close to the same outline size and shape as a classic old fashioned 60 Watt light bulb, and it takes no more space than the filament bulb it might replace.

My applications for these B22 8W LED bulbs include the hall downstairs and more critical places such as the porch light where the cold and frequent auto-switching on and off has shortened the life of CFLs but now will not affect the LEDs in the least.

At around a tenner each these are reasonable value for 35,000 hours or more of light, which seems to be forever for a light bulb that is off for much of the time when one remembers that there are about eight and a half thousand hours in a year.

I made some weight tests on bulbs to hand. With the decent heat-sink the 8W LED weighs 130gms, which is more than a conventional 60W filament bulb (32gms) or a 15W CFL (102gms).

For different light levels I recommend the 6W (480 lumen) Auraglow and 10W (810 lumen) Osram NON-dimmable bulbs.

Also worth a look are these 5W (240 lumen) Megaman candles and 8W (600 lumen) Auraglow DIMMABLE bulbs.
