LED for the house
I check the lamp aisle at Lowes and HomerD often to see what is newly introduced. LED replacements for the "A" incandescent lamp (the common 60W and similar) are priced around the $26.00 range. I found some Sharp brand LED lamps of that type at Ollies for about $10.00 and decided to test a couple of them in my house. Made in China, not dimmable. The package does not mention dimming at all, but the Sharp website has the info. I tried the lamps for various uses and found one fixture that really benefited from them, a vast improvement over the incandescents in both brightness and light color. And these 4 LED lamps combined use less wattage total than did just one of the previously used incandescents. As the variety of the LED lamps increases, they may prove to be very useful in several applications.
