AH LED bulb E27

Postby TANE » Wed Nov 04, 2009 10:43 pm

Today I have replaced my 20 Watt energy saving bulb with 5 watt Led bulb

Total saving in 15 year
328,5 Kw
70,77 euro

See the dutch calculation on my Blog
Please correct me if the calculation is wrong.

Enver, I had a look too and found dimable and non dimable ones. Serious price of 25 euro.
Didn't see any warm white ones that could be dimmed, did you?

I have also tested the dimable version.
Color temp is +/- 3000k
For startup you need minimum of 50% power
After that you can dim it back.
With DAIX modules is that not a good option..since they have soft start.
Soft start means no light...for few seconds

I have already had several LED bulbs and even a LED TL tube that didn't even make it for a year!
This AH LED bulb i had died after 2 (!!) days.
So i am very skeptical about lifetime of LED. There's a lot of rubbish!

For now I think a calculation can only be accurate afterward, based on actual lifetime instead of statements from the manufacturers.

Agree, there is a lot of rubbish among the LED products
And I have also a lot of failing LED led light after weeks or months using!

Agree about the lifetime we have to wait 15 years.
Did search for guarantee time.
no word about that on the package.

OK
That is what I thought, lets make a topic about in LEDs about all the experience about lifetime etc.
I had my suspicions about the LED industry to exaggerate about to lifetime of LED lights.
I'm in favor of LEDS but they have to tell the real deal!

This morning the owner of the company behind the LED bulb of the Postcode action, Ruud Koornstra, was on the radio. He mentioned they garantuee a lifetime of 25 years and when a bulb dies within that period you should send a mail an they would send you a new one.

The Pharox bulb was also available at AH (warmwhite) but I couldn't find anywhere if it could be dimmed. I see a 200 and a 300 series, guess the last one can be dimmed.
They are also not clear, one bulb gets a 15 year rating the next one 25 years. In the small print it says: when used max 4 hours a day......

@Zebrafilm: Have a look at their website! The 300 is dimable, the 200 is not. I'm using one 300 at the moment and am very pleased with it. Will get me a few more....

Today I bought the AH LED bulb E27 6 watts and a Pharox 5 watt LED bulb E27.
I'm surprised about the amount of light and the good color, best I have seen so far!
Now lets see if I can light my rooms for 25 years with these LEDS :-)
Don't thinks so, keep you posted [8D]

The AH 6 watts is dimable and the Pharox 6 watt version is also dimable. The Pharox 5 watt is not!
