What should I be considering when purchasing LED light bulbs?
There are now a vast number of LED bulbs available on the market from a multitude of sources for use in a wide variety of applications. As an LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulb is no longer a filament-based light source and is actually a computer chip – the level of technology within the production process is an important factor. In general, I would always recommend doing your research, and then buy the highest quality product your budget will allow. This will most likely ensure that you are purchasing from a reputable manufacturer who has focused on producing bulbs with an appropriate combination of the most critical factors to consider; color temperature, color rendering index (CRI), lumen output, thermal management, dimmability, photometrics, and longevity.
