Where to get CR6?

Posted by ryanhouse (My Page) on

I was very excited to read that inexpensive and dimmable LEDs were now available in the form of the CR6. Unfortunately, however, my builder couldn't come up with any information (the Cree rep wouldn't return the calls of his lighting store).

I did find a local source, but they said they would charge $90 + $20 for the recessed can. This is substantially more than quoted here, where people were getting them for about $60 each, especially since I would need quite a few of them. How do I get the prices mentioned here?

Thanks very much in advance for any help you can provide.

RE: Where to get CR6?

The CR6 hasn't been released yet... August, I think. There will be a Home Depot branded version and a lighting distributer Cree branded version. The lighting distributer version (your local lighting store) will have a 5 year warranty. The Home Depot version will have a 3 year warranty.

You were probably quoted an LR6 from you local source.
