As mentioned in a previous post, we will replace some of the 85 halogen bulbs (50W) in our house with LEDs. Despite all those bulbs the house is seriously underlit. The standard 50W equivalent LEDs (4W) will not likely cut it. We want to go to higher wattage or higher efficiency bulbs. Electricity is very expensive here (Costa Rica) so the extra cost of higher wattage or high efficiency bulbs will pay off. The bulbs will need to survive the frequent power surges and the daily lightening storms.
Can some suggest some brands and specific bulbs that my wife can bring back from the U.S.?
