A bright idea!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 2X 5W SMD E14 LED bulbs energy saving 240V E14 LED Candle Bulb*3014 SMD E14 LED light Bulb in crystal lamp replacement E14 HALOGEN Bulb,e14 daylight bulb, Cool White
Fed up with standard E14 incandescent candle bulbs failing at the most inopportune moments and trying to move towards a more eco-friendly and power-saving alternative, I bought the two of these to use in my magnifier lamp on my workbench.
With a plastic lens, heat from regular bulbs caused the image to warp a little after several hours use. Switching to a lower wattage lamp reduced the brightness but not the heat. The yellowish/orange glow of incandescent bulbs was a hindrance and 'daylight' bulbs were more expensive and brought more heat problems.
This bulb uses just 5W and produces as much light as a 40W regular bulb. It runs much cooler and the white light is more like daylight in its whiteness. One of the ways to compare the whiteness of a light bulb is to look at it's 'colour temperature'. For example, fluorescent bulbs are blueish at around 5200K and incandescent light bulbs are around 3000K which is why they are more of a orange yellow colour. Match flames and Candles are between 1700K and 1900K
By contrast these LED bulbs are 6500K which makes them closer to daylight temperatures and are therefore ideal for applications where you need a good source of white light.
I find it easy to work under this light. Less strain on my eyes means fewer headaches when I am working for several hours at my desk.
Apart from the usual benefits of lower electricity usage and excellent light output, the LED bulb lasts longer than an incandescent bulb - up to 20,000 hours. Incandescent bulbs typically last up to 2000 hours if they are used sparingly. The LED bulb incorporates a small switching mode power supply that converts the 240V from your mains supply down to the lower 3V that LEDs use.
Th light is instant unlike fluorescent bulbs which rely on a ballast and a starter to operate correctly, both of which can fail.
This item is highly recommended for its eco-friendly features and clean, clear. crisp white colour.
