I recently purchased some LED "C-9"s for use outside. Every year I
try this, and every year they are returned.
Is there any type or brand that come close to the brightness of
a standard incandescent C-9?? These clear LED's I just purchased
are an off brand and some even have a yellowish cast.
Thanks for help!
You can get commercial grade LED C9 lamps from Action Lighting, but even
those are not quite as bright as incandescent. LEDs have made great
strides, but they are not quite there yet. The yellowish cast is not
surprising, white LEDs consist of a blue LED chip coated with a
yellow-orange emitting phosphor to give you something resembling white.
The cheaper ones generally have poorer uniformity.
