As talked about in the Green Lighting book, there need to be replacements to incandescent bulbs that are easy for people to switch over. A simple A bulb in a lamp is the easiet start like one of my clients MSi Lighting has with 3M.
Here are some other benefits of LED bulbs.
Saves up to 90 percent energy, compared to incandescent, up to 50 percent over CFL.
- Lifetime around 25 years, based on 4 hours of operation daily
- Warm white light (+/- 3000 K)
- Very energy efficient – 6 watt, replaces up to 60 watt incandescent
- High light output (> 300 lumen)
- Fits most regular fixtures
- Contains no mercury

Hi Seth,No doubt the Pharox 300 is a great LED lamp however, to compare it with a 60 Watt equivalent is a bit too much: the Parox output is 300Lumens, for a 60Watt replacement you need an output of 806Lumens. Again, a great lamp but a bit overspecified.Best regards,Jan
$125.00 Canadian dollars for 5 Pharox bulbs at kuuala.com is indeed a pretty good deal!
This is very interesting. I should take the time to look over my light bulbs for future purchases. Thank you for sharing! I’m going to pin this to my Pinterest board for later.
