LED Lightbulbs - super efficient light bulbs

  • Good afternoon. anong brand ang marerecommend niyo? i'm on a budget. for household use. :)
  • depende. if its on for a long time I recommend higher lumen/watt plus reliable good construction. that means GES 2year warranty or maybe firefly even numbered watt

    if you want large light angle, firefly even number

    for lights that are seldom used, one option is to choose the cheapest made in china bulbs. pwede below 100 pesos for a 5w bulb


    if you're gonna use it outside, to prevent dead insects from collecting inside and causing the bulb to overheat use bulbs without holes. Some GES and some firefly models specially the new even numbered watt ones have no holes
  • Good afternoon. anong brand ang marerecommend niyo? i'm on a budget. for household use. :)


    last time na bili namin sa ace ng phillips 3.5w 149/ea. at yung GE 4w 149/ea. lahat sila 3yrs. warranty
  • I'm leaning towards GES since it has a 3 or 5 year warranty. nakita ko din yung post about sa Starlight LED, the cheapest was php100, while sa GES php154. i'll look into firefly or phillips, matagal na din kasi akong hindi nakakapunta ng mall to check the prices, so far dito pa lang sa net ako nakakatingin. not sure about sa china brands. maganda ba ang quality ng china LED lights? i want quality para hindi na bili ng bili. hehehe salamat!
  • ok na! problem solved hehe

    2 or 5 not 3 or 5

    nope. expect them to produce less light per watt and to die quicker.


    However if you use more expensive but durable lights in light fixtures that are rarely used, then aabutan kayo ng ilang dekada bago mag ROI. They may be even cheaper than the equivalent branded CFL. Using cheap LED lights may mean na less ang time na pagdating ng ROI. And since rarely used, matagal din bago masira. Although pag malas ka talagang masisira kahit rarely used. So, its a gamble, a strategy. If however madalas gamitin then no question, either GES or firefly even number para mas mataas ang lumen/watt

    phillips and GE have slightly higher prices per watt and per lumen, along with lower lumens/watt. Its hard to recommend them when meron namang GE and firefly which have more lumens/watt and are cheaper. Ang only advantage lang nila may be lifespan but thats hard to measure unless you have a LOT of bulbs

  • @thewatchdog
    depende yan sa policy ng pinagbilhan mo

    best is ibalik mo agad sa kanila
  • Saan nakakabili ng circular na LED ceiling light? Awkward kasi kung isang bulb na malaki nasa gitna tapos pababa lang ang illuminated. Yun bang makakapag replace sa mga circular na ceiling light na ang laman ay circular florescent. Isa palang kasi nakikita ko available sa consumers e sa Handyman yung Qusun ang brand. SMD LEDs ang gamit niya yung pinakamataas is 20W ewan ko lang kung gaano ka liwanag yun kasi maliwanag sa loob ng tindahan hehehe. Sing liwanag kaya yang 20W sa 55W na circular florescent?
  • nakabili ako ng omni 6w led @150.00 3yrs warranty sa handyman. sabi nung salesman di daw nababasag, ti nest din ung firefly 5w pareahas sila ng price 3yrs warranty din. mas maliwanag ung omni kaya un ang binili ko.

    bili din ako ng stark 3w led ng cdrking @75.00 1yr warranty nilagay ko sa labas ng bahay ok naman.
  • Awkward kasi kung isang bulb na malaki nasa gitna tapos pababa lang ang illuminated


    firefly even number has 220 degrees light angle so baka pwede na yun
  • GES may circular led lights na pero medyo mahal nasa 800+
    2 klase yun, yung kita ang bilog at yung isa covered...

    price is posted 1 ro 2 pages back

  • 2 or 5 not 3 or 5


    sorry typo :D

  • @tong2x

    thanks sa reply

    @all

    Question about warranty, what's the basis of claiming the X years warranty? Is it the box? Pansin ko kasi like sa Handyman, meron mga LED bulbs yung isang brand 1yr warranty nakalagay sa box pero upgraded na daw yun to 2 years tapos meron naman isang brand walang nakalagay sa box pero 3 years warranty daw yun. Para sa akin kasi ang hirap naman nun na-entice kang bumili kasi mahaba ang warranty tapos wala kang pinanghahawakan na papel or evidence na nagsasabi na meron talagang 3 year warranty yung item. Paano kung after 1 or 2 years pinapalitan mo sabihin sa iyo 1yr lang pala yun e wala ka naman maipakitang proof?

    Meron na ba senyo na nakabili ng LED bulb na walang nakalagay kung ilang years warranty pero pinangakuan kayo na meron itong 2 or 3 years pero nung napundi at pinapalitan niyo ay hindi nila pinalitan?

  • yan nga ang issue sa ibang brand ng LED na walang nakasulat sa box...
    possible na magbago, or sabihin na nagkamali sa pagsabi or worst mali ang rinig mo...

    unlike dun sa nakasulat mismo sa box ang warranty.

    karamihan ata na nagpalit is within 1 year...

    ang malabo dyan is firefly... pag depo kasi 3years warranty... pero pag sa labas na mga retail store 1year or less

  • ang binili ko palang LED ay yung starbright LED. 220 yung 7watts. 350 naman yung 12watts. :) first time kong gumamit ng LED as household lighting kaya di ko masasabi ang performance. :)
  • @fat_joe

    ilang lumens ang nakalagay and gaano katagal ang warranty
  • Mga bossing, I have been using Firefly LED bulbs for almost a year now. 3 watts and 7 watts.
    meron din pala akong Landlite na warm white 4 watts, so far ok pa naman sila.

    Recently, i bought Omni 9 watts. mas malakas sya sa 7 watts na Firefly as it is rated 800 lumens.
    nabili ko sya for P187.
    Ask ko lang sana kung may nakagamit na sa inyo ng Omni LED bulbs. ano po sa experience nyo? salamat!

  • ^omni gamit namin, cfl bulb, tubular LEDs and LED bulbs, okay naman sila, wala pa akong problema sakanila. ngayon nag try naman ako ng GES (1 tubular LED 1 bulb)
  • @AmalgamvsAloof

    nakalimutan ko. pipikturan ko at ipopost ko bukas yung kahon at yung ichura mismo. 1year lang warranty.


    kakalipat lang namin ng bahay nung dec 8. reading nung sa kuryente ay dec 10. ang ginagamit ko na ilaw ay yung 7 at 12 watts. mas matagal na naka on ang 12 watts (samahan mo na din ng electric fan). ang total bill ay nasa php6.60 lang. hindi ko alam ang computation or kung mas mura ba yung consumption over ccfl. hehehe
  • guyz i need help, im planning to buy a light for our sala, but i want yung dimmable na color white yung light para pag gabi hinde kame masaydo exposed sa labas at i-didim lang pag manunuod ng tv sa gabi..any suggestions? TIA
  • Ang GES may dimmable led bulb, masmahal sa ordinary led bulb.
    Ask mo nalang for the dimmable version
  • but i want yung dimmable


    what I do is i use an e27 to e27 pull chain+2x nema 1-15 converter

    External Image


    place a larger wattage bulb on the e27 socket, say 5w


    then on one of the nema 1-15 plugs I plug in a nema 1-15 to e27 converter

    External Image


    then place a smaller wattage bulb here say 1w




    when you want full power, pull the chain so both the 5w and the 1w bulb are lit. When you want dim light, pull the chain and mamamatay ang 5w but the 1w stays on
  • went to my local ace. omni, phillips and GES all have new gen bulbs

    phillips and GES actually look almost identical, same OEM manufacturer ata. Hard to describe the shape. Its not like the usual curvy light bulb shape. This gemini spacecraft is the first thing that comes to mind.

    External Image


    Due to the shape the beam angle looks to be a little larger than it used to be since part of the transparent diffuser points slightly backwards. Both seem to have no holes but I havent checked them out closely yet. No holes means insects can't get inside, pwede pang outdoor use

    I looked at one omni 9w and one GES. Both surprisingly seem to be 80 lumen/w. And the GES is 5w, before that was not available, only 5.5w. Paurong ang GES, dapat 90 lumen/w

    I dont have a pic of the philips/ges new gen bulb but this is close. Just change the base a little, make it less curvy and more of a straight line or rather the base is more cone shaped. And the base is shorter

    the diffuser points a little backwards so the beam angle should be better
