LED Lightbulbs - super efficient light bulbs

  • pwed siguro kasi bago palang naman, kung dun parin yung merchandizer...
    ngayon pag ayaw sumulat at sabihin lng na company policy yung 5years hindi na kailangan isulat
    medyo nakakapagtaka na. pero covered naman yan ng 3years sabi dati ng iba, so ok parin at that price.
  • after six month yung tig 99 na led 3w from cdrking pina warranty ko na...tumutunog eh nakakatakot pag o on mo tutunog na parang grounded...
  • Thanks red_baron!

    @tpc_jayem, hanggang kelan yung sale sa ace?
  • @tong2x
    binalikan ko kanina, sabi nung merchandiser kahit hindi na daw sulatan.
    kita naman daw sa code nung resibo pag ni-search sa record yun. pa-xerox ko nalang daw. para may backup copy.
    hinayaan ko nalang, di na ko nagpumilit.

    @pogsdaw
    di ko rin alam kung hanggang kailan yung sale
    kaya bumili pa ako ulit kanina. sayang kasi baka bigla mawala. xD
  • @jayem
    Hopefully ganun nga kadali tulad ng sabi nya. Mahirap lng sa ganya sa oras ng warranty baka dun lumabas issue pero kng magamit mo yan ng 2 years hnd masira. Sobrang bawi kanarin na kahit hnd nila i honor ok narin.
  • Bumili ako ng Phillips 12.5w bulb 1000 lumens more or less

    pansin ko lang parang di siya 6500k kahit nakasulat sa box, medyo may blue tint sya. Biglang ang warm ng dating ng mga monitor at tv sa kwarto. Or ganito ba talaga yung 6500k? Hehe medyo bulok ako sa kulay. Pero maliwanag naman at may 3 year warranty kaya panalo na rin

  • one of my rooms has one 9w GES 5 year and one 12.5w phillips

    i can't really tell the difference between their colors.
  • old chandeliers, around 40 years old. the socket/bulb size is E14. Incandescents work fine in all of them

    except for one (looks a little shinier and younger) chandelier e14 cfl's and led bulbs dont work in some sockets. usually half or less of the sockets work so I just buy one cfl/led bulb, write down which sockets work and then buy more to fill the sockets. The rest of the sockets which dont work have incandescents but I unscrewed them a bit so they dont light up


    I tried carefully soldering a spiral bit of copper wire on the tip of the cfl/led light bulb so that its 2-4 mm longer than usual. It works maybe 20% of the time. In those instances where it doesnt work the wire is compressed back onto the tip of the bulb so I know i'm hitting something

    Once I even tried carefully (with the power off) using long nose insulated pliers to gently pull up the center contact a bit. Nope didnt work


    any suggestions?
  • ^ sayang nga kakabili ko lang ng 9w na philips sa ace hardware worth 478 pesos. hindi ko natiyempuhan yan 12.5 watts ng philips na nakita ko sa puregold kinabukasan na 549 pesos lang.
  • Once I even tried carefully (with the power off) using long nose insulated pliers to gently pull up the center contact a bit.
    try to put something underneath the contact. siyempre yung hindi matutunaw or liliyab.
  • sige hanap ako
  • Low color temp, warm, yellow
    Dayligth, white, white
    High color temp, white, bluish

    6500 medyo mataas na, plus the fact the hnd rin naman perfect meaning 6500 sa box pero baka masmataas or lower
    Ges, warm, coolwhite and dayligth. Dayligth is white while cool white is in between warm and dayligth.

  • okay, this is unusual. a GES 2 year warranty 4w maybe ~ 1 year old is now experiencing the only known bug of GES. The nightlight bug. A very soft glow when the light switch is off

    Considering this only happened the morning after the typhoon i'm thinking some of the wires in my ceiling are damp and a bit grounded

  • traded places. put in a 6w firefly. both have no nightlight bug so baka nga wet wires
  • @AuspexBearer:

    ganyan mismo nangyari sa 5.5w ko na wala pang 2-weeks old. dati wala naman glow pag naka off.
    baka dahil sa moisture sa switchbox. may lobo sa ilalim ng pintura, suspetsa ko basa yung pader.
    nagumpisa lang rin yun saamin habang nag-uulan during typhoon glenda.

    kanina lang nagka-kuryente dito saamin kaya
    mamayang gabi ko palang matitignan kung ganon parin.
  • dito sa kwarto ganyan din may glow cyang konti pagka naka off...so ginawa ko bumili ako ng bulb socket na may hinihila para i off/on cya...so pagnaka on sa switch, pero naka off sa dun sa socket na de-tali, wala naman glow...

    anong paliwanag ngayon dun?
