Default Small A19 LED bulb review

This is more for the Duracell bulbs listed here. I was just comparing them to some other A19 LED bulbs I have around.

I ran across these while at the local Batteries + looking for a battery. Duke/Progress Energy has a rebate going for a lot of LED bulbs there. It isn't available at Lowe's for some reason. The weird thing is that they offer them on 4000k and below bulbs but not the 5000k bulbs. These bulbs are available in 40, 60, 75 and 100w with color temps of 3000k, 4000k and 5000k. I picked up one each of the 60w versions.

The 3000k and 4000k versions were 7.99 each and the 5000k one was 17.99. All of the 60w versions are listed as using 11.5w. Light output is listed at 800 lumens for the 3000/4000k versions and 820 lumens for the 5000k version. The box says they are dimmable, suitable for dry/damp locations and do not use in fully enclosed fixtures. I'll list the bulb used in each picture and the power being used according to my watt meter. The watt meter shows 1 even when nothing is plugged into it so take that into consideration. Bulbs will be listed left to right, top to bottom in pictures with multiple bulbs. All of them are 60w equivalents. They have a 5 year warranty.

Duracell 3000k, 4000k, 5000k, Sylvania 2700k, Switch60 clear, Switch60 frosted, Cree 5000k



Duracell 3000k - kept bouncing between 13 and 14w



Duracell 4000k - kept bouncing between 13 and 14w



Duracell 5000k - kept bouncing between 13 and 14w



Sylvania - 13w



Switch clear - 15w



Switch frosted - 17w



Cree - 11w



Duracell 3000k, 4000k, 5000k



Switch clear, frosted



Cree, Sylvania



Cree 5000k, Duracell 5000k - It looks like they are pretty close, if not exact, color wise.



Duracell 3000k, Switch frosted, Sylvania



Lens removed from Duracell 4000k



Some internal pics of the 4000k.



Total of 30 LEDs for 15s2p. Direct link for large image. Maybe somebody can ID the LEDs being used. http://i.imgur.com/NXdRz9m.jpg



Powered on with cover removed.



I threw a few of the 4000k ones in the ceiling fan that's in my "office." I just need to find a dimmer switch now. I haven't had much luck trying to find a list of compatible ones yet. So far I'm satisfied with them. They do seem to put out more than 800 lumens. I might try some dimmers to see if I can find one that works. I'll be sure to report here if I do.

They also had Duracell snowcone style A19s and some PAR bulbs at the store. The snowcone style ones only come in 3000k and are not dimmable. They do have a lower energy consumption according to the box though. I didn't look that closely at the PAR lamps.

Default Re: Small A19 LED bulb review

Neat. I would be interested to know the operating temperature of each. 17W in a package that small...

Also a comparison to an actual 60W incandescent.
