    I'm looking for something that's an upgrade (brighter) than the Philips Tornado 24w CFL which is supposedly 1550lm. Any dice or should I be moving to an LED batten?

    Phillips make the best consumer LEDs. End of.

    These are at a good price.

      For me bad experience. Installed 4 Philips led lights on my study room. It interferes with TV transmission. When I turn off lights I can view all channels.

      •  

        Did this just happen with the Phillips globes? What happened when you replaced them with different brand globes? That sounds like it would be a problem with your tv cable/amplifier/splitter, I doubt the brand of globe would be the cause of this problem. Or was the tv fine before with other brand globes in and on?

      In the early days they were really bad. The "cool" ones were yellow and the "warm" ones were practically orange. I think they were trying to match people's expectations moving from incandescent globes but screwed it up pretty bad.

        LED globes are still like that. We have a choice between piss-yellow, night-time lighting on a bus blue, or paying 5x as much as we should for a globe with tunable colour.

    No SES or SBS baked beans and spaghetti?

    Does anyone know if the $3.50 LED bulb comes in ES instead of BC?

    Cool for office/work areas, warm for living areas, right?

      Just go for 3000K throughout. It’s considered “warm” but still whiter than an old school incandescent bulb.
      A great tradeoff without having different coloured lights throughout the house.

    •  

      Yes that’s correct… although Loopy does make a good suggestion for those who prefer to keep it all one color.
      But personally, I feel the warmer/yellower the light is more comfortable and homely, and I can relax easier. And the cooler/whiter the light is more for work/study like you said.
      So, IMO, it’s good to have both so you can shift into work mode around whiter lights, then transition into calmer relaxation mode when you are in the living room/bedrooms relaxing

    Has anyone used the LED sticks before? Other than the shape, how are they different from the globes? The 11W sticks are the same price as the 9W globes so it should be a no brainer right?

    •  

      Have same question. Looking at using these to replace tornado fluoros in ceiling fan.

    •  

      found all the globes which were selling atbunnings were too big for the downlight conversions in my rented home. they could not fit. the led stick I hope will be slimmer and thus may be a use for them.

    Great saving!!

    I find 806 lumens a bit dim - 1055 lumens is the approximately the old 75w and 1400 lumens is around the old 100w.

    In my dining room I have 3x 1055, kitchen 2x 1055, etc. Bedrooms have 1 globe - I use 1055.

    Bathroom 2 globes - one 806 above mirror and 1055 in ceiling.

    I chose all warm white - I can't stand 6500k - too glary and 'cold' - I feel like I'm in a dentist.

    I wish there was more globes at natural white (4000k) but it doesn't seem popular. To me that's the best compromise - not too yellow, but not too sterile either.

      The Olsent LED Cool White is 4000K (you can get them from Woolies), the range is quite limited though.
      After using these I do agree that this is the perfect temperature for living areas.

      •  

        Yeah I did see those - but they don't have screw fitting in cool white 1400 lumens hehe…

        Do you know who makes Olsent? ie what globe is rebranded into Olsent? Mirabella perhaps?

        •  

          Ah fair enough. No idea, it could be some Chinese brand, as I don't see anything on the packaging apart from the fact that it's packed for Woolworths.
