Lithoania LED Cans ?

cjcaliAugust 23, 2011

Has anyone researched the Lithoania LED Cans (Lithonia Lighting L7XLED T24)? They seem to good to be true - $12.51/can (including bulb). The lumens seem a little underpowered, but that would just mean putting a few more cans in, right? I'm really trying to avoid CFL and have to comply with Title 24. Any thoughts appreciated!!!

I think the "including bulb" statement is a mistake.

Normal 6" housing costs between $10 - $20.

The typical output of a recessed LED module is between 575 to 650 lumens.

Normal A lamps will output ~ 800 lumens. There will be losses when placed inside a can - possible reduction of output to ~ 500 - 600 (optimistic) lumens.

You must be right. I "knew" it was too good to be true! Thanks
