  • Nice... but too expensive

    posted by Mirkovich on 02/02/2011

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Seems pretty nicely built. You have to take care of heatsink not making any short circuit.
    - Very bright. Bright is like a 5w incandescent or a bit more.

    Cons:

    Biggest con: the price.
    An incandescent lightbulb for a car in this size I can get for u$s 0,15 here in my country, buying in large quantity (and u$s 0,50 buying just one in any shop).
    This is extremely expensive in comparison.

    OtherThoughts:

    They don't seem to be built for car. Car's voltage is 13,8 volt maximum with engine running. And power consumption goes a little higher than rated when this lightbulbs are tested on 13,8 volt, instead of nominal 12v. I hope they still last enough.

    Bottomline:

    I'll try to sell it to my clients, but I just hope I lasts long so they can see some advantage of getting this lightbulb instead of regular ones.
