At my church, we have a lot of "can lights" in the ceiling. They
had been taking out the 150 watt filament bulbs, and using CF
"curly cue" bulbs. Now they are installing LED flood lights, and
are totally pleased with them.
They T-30 are about $40 each, and can't remember. 18 watts
power draw, is it? Brighter actually than the 150 watt filament
bulbs that had been in there. The flood light style throws the light
down and out, instead of bouncing around the tin can.
I don't have any can lights. But, they do offer "corn cob" shaped
LED on Ebay. The CF bulbs I have in, are still working. And some
straight bulb fluorescents I've got for various uses. I'm not spending
$7 per bulb just yet on the LED. Maybe later?
I had (about year 1988) a lamp over my work bench. When I'd turn
the grinder on, the bulb would blow. I blew through (sorry, not funny)
a four pack of Phillips, and then had a GE, or was it Sylvania. Anyhow,
the different brand lasted a lot longer.
I wonder if the LED corn cob bulbs will stand up to vibration? At seven
dollars a bulb, what's the pay back time? LONG time, I'm sure.
