LED Lightbulbs - super efficient light bulbs

  • I settled for E14 3W daylight for the kitchen
    replaced the two E14 3W warm white candle flame shaped bulbs

    I didn't get the lighting temp I wanted but better than yellow-orange of the all warm set-up
    274Php each from Ace Hardware
  • Yung under 100.00 mga bulbs, dont expect it to be high quality and very bright...

    Mga flood ligths starts at 500.00 up to 2500.00, normally 10w to 30w yan



    maybe you could get a china made led bulb na 5-7 watts for around 100, but its an ordinary bulb. Usable as a weak spotlight if you have a reflector thats designed for the way light is emitted from the usual half hemisphere light diffuser of a LED bulb

    another option is to remove the diffuser and just rely on the limited directional throw of the naked LED emitters. You might need to cover it with something clear though

    i think this is the 3rd gen body. but it probably does not have 4th gen emitters.

    5w, php 164.75 lumen. 2 year warranty printed right on the box. But you need the reciept

    the picture on the box is accurate, there's nothing printed on the body of the lamp except a serial number. A mild annoyance that pentel pen fixes

    Yes as suggested by the shape of the diffuser, the beam angle is wider when compared to an older GES 4w bulb

  • yup e27 po
  • e27 yan
  • salamat
  • @AmalgamvsAloof
    yes, yan yung bagong dating ng GES, wider beam angle...
    using SMD led rather than 4th gen LED... but with the same 2years warranty
    comes in 1w, 3w and 5w

    meron na rin silang 5th gen LED pero nasa GU at MR type wala parin tech paper sa difference ng 4th and 5th gen
  • Good Day po mga ka TPC.. Magpapa-advice lng po sana ako kung ano ang dapat kong bilhin na LED Bulb sa Tindahan namin. Kasi Napundi na ung Luma naming Flourescent na 10w ata or 20w (di ko sure). Ang Sukat po ng Tindahan namin is 1meter ang lapad, at mga 1.5-2m ang haba. Tapos lets say 7-8ft ang taas ng bulb (kisame). Pasensya na po bago lng po about LED. Actually first time ko po bumili nito.
  • Any reviews po nung Omni na 12watt daylight led bulb na tig 249 pesos? I think 1150 lumens ata output niya?
  • parang ganyan yung nabili ko sa sm last sunday. ok naman sya at mas maliwanag kesa sa dating kong cfl na 24watts.

    at least medyo tipid sa konsumo, 12watts vs 24watts.

    planning to replace all my cfl bulbs to led bulbs next payday.

    aba kailangan siguraduhin mo. find the old bulb and look at the printed wattage. Or borrow a cfl bulb of known wattage and try it out so you have a guesstimate of how many watts of CFL you need

    usually a LED bulb replacement would be 50% to 60% of the wattage of the previous CFL bulb. If its a chinese no name brand make it 60-80%. But to be more accurate just look at the old bulb, note down the watts and the brand. Sa store look for a brand new CFL + box thats the same or almost the same. Then look at how many lumens is written on the box. Then start looking for a LEd bulb of more or less the same lumens. Dont forget to return the CFL + box, it was only for comparison

    Good brands na bang for the buck are GES, firefly (even numbered wattage the new versions), and maybe even the new versions of omni although they are too new and we arent sure about them yet. If you are willing to spend more money then quality brands like phillips and GE are available

  • ^ Magkano at ilang watts?
  • Mura lang sir less 200 pesos :)
  • na-temp ako
    220petot
    omni
    1100lumens nakalagay
    12watts

    napundi yung energy saver 3U na 25watts
    ok naman kaso mas maliwanag yung tinanggal ko
  • one gripe about the new omnis. Parang walang 4w. e yun naman ang common na gamit ko

    yung 23w kong spiral cfl is 1400lumens na, kaya siguro mas mahina yung omni. naghahanap nga ako ng pamalit dito in case mapundi. I'm thinking of two 7 or 9watter LED from GES using a splitter.

    bought the 5w GES 2yr for php 164.75 sa true value robinsons magnolia kanina. maganda ang tapon ng ilaw sa low-ceiling bathroom namin.
  • using a splitter.



    saw one e27 Y splitter in the chinese number malls near the bonifacio statue. medyo mahal 100+ (i posted about it several pages ago). Ebay is an option but the 100 pesos delivery fee makes it uneconomic

    a cheaper option would be a combo of these two at chinese number malls. maybe 10-30 pesos each

    plus

  • another cheap option would be to salvage the lower body or pwet of a busted e27 CFL. Remove the electronics and the bulb and all you have is an e27 male screw, an plastic half hemisphere and 2 wires.

    now buy 2 of these

    External Image


    as low as 15 pesos each.



    and solder the wires in parallel to the wires coming out of the CFL pwet. Maybe add something stiff but non flammable to angle the direction of the 2 sockets

    of course, if you make a mistake handling wires you could have a short so you might want to find someone knowledgeable like an electrician or something

  • of course all 3 of the above are available in ace/handyman. higher quality for higher price
  • SM 3 day sale pala sa SM north bukas. Kasama din yung sa Ace Hardware.. Sale din kaya mga bulbs nila?
  • ^ try mo before 9am
    kasi may first 3hours silang less 20% basta may sm advantage card ka
    kaso grabeh pila
    bulto-bulto bilihan lalo na mga fil-chinese
    kaya maaga lang best strategy mo (if may kasama ka siya na papilahan mo muna while pumipili ka pa

    uu kasama lahat sa sale mga yan
  • bulto-bulto bilihan lalo na mga fil-chinese


    then resell at SRP?


    alam na...

    <click here for link>
    mas mahaba yung actual compared sa nakalagay pic sa box. ewan ko lang kung bakit bansot yung pic ng nasa box. hehehe

  • kaso grabeh pila

    even without reselling, a relatively foolproof and good paying investment is to buy in bulk cheaply

    then resell at SRP?


    alam na...

    and thats why they are more successful in business than us. nothing illegal about this
