Why?

I have one 10W led at my bedroom with yellow lightcolor. Looks like 75W incandescent.
All incandescent broke down due to power surges. Led is still running for 2 years.

It needs some air flow around led lamp. But incandescent lamps needs airing too.

No, "the left" didn't force legislation. Manufacturers were already planning to phase them out. It was a move to take credit for the inevitable. President Bush signed it into law in 2007, but few took notice of it at the time.

But if you have any, save them for future use or sale.

As they phased out the incandescents, I bought a few just to have them on hand.

Last time I checked, I had enough incandescent bulbs on hand to last for the next 190 years.

I'm thinking about selling a few of them on eBay as "heat balls," i.e., incandescent heating devices that also have the additional benefit of producing sufficient illumination for reading, detailed work, etc.

They arent as bright,the light they produce IS NOT NATURAL,etc.......... Its like the difference between digital and analog like I said before....

aren't as bright ? how do you judge bright ? lumens per watt ? candle power at work space ? that statement means nothing.

no lamp is "natural light " all light comes from something artificial made to glow and mimic sunlight .

Do you also think the old rounded screen tube tvs are better than the flat screens?
