Which all leads me to one burning question on the Rankin scale……..why doesn’t this company use the most efficient, highest CRI, color consistant chip in the world? ie. CREE chips?
CREE chips reduce the burden on thermal dispersion by virtue of their efficiency and can stand higher core temps anyway. Heat sinks are expensive.
Certainly there is a non-engineering rationale for this boycott so maybe someone could explain it.
Why does it take buying from Taiwan and China to get a “corn” bulb that will replace a 100w light bulb?
A 270 degree corn would be best for millions of existing bath fixtures that previously used two horizontal 75s or 100s but there is no suitable replacement at this point in time.
Few people are going to buy into new untested (by consumer standards) LED/fixture technology at a premium but probably would replace incandescents with a trusted LED lamp in a conventional fixture installed at converntional prices.
Eventually I feel confident everyone will have flush wall and ceiling panels of light, whether OLED or LED, and have remote dimming and color temperature selection. The remote can then be put on the wireless for internet access offering stats as to wattage, ambient temp, total hours, etc. It can be tied to an existing internet security camera matrix……but here and now, just give us a light bulb,halogen, and CFL replacements so we can start reducing consumption TODAY.
