LED advice

I know that LEDs last longer and generate next to no heat.

What has been your experience as to their longevity as compared to CFLs ?

How do they do in high humidity environments ?

I was looking at prices for 100 watt, but at $20 per bulb, it seems pretty steep.

[Unless it comes with a good looking babe. :-) ]

They have a 5 year warranty while CFL's usually have a 7 year guarantee.

Take care,



warantees are fairly meaningless, in many ways

i would expect an LED to work for 20 or 30 years, if the circuit is well designed and built
possibly even longer


I do not know what CFLs, this LEDs but a very good thing.
  They are durable, I have written extremely durable.
Beautiful very much. And economically so that for example
a flashlight shines with them for almost a month
continuously without recharging.


According to wiki:
LED 30,000 hours
Incandescent 1,000 hours
Compact fluorescents 8,000 hours

I have taken back bulbs that did not last and gotten a refund.

Feit is a very poor brand. A high % fail within 6 months.
