Pros:
This is a great replacement for incandescent bulbs. The quality / price ratio is more than fair. The heat generated is a fraction of a standard bulb so it great for thigh plastic interior lamps which have the habit of melting.
Cons:
Not really a con but rather a fact. The power of the bulb measured on a bench power supply set at 14V is of 0.42 Watt. (0.03A power draw).
Other:
The bulb doesn't have a protective plastic / glass tube, but this doesn't affect it in any way. It's purpose is to work in enclosed spaces which by their nature offer protection.
Bottomline:
- Color temperature ~ 6500 K
- Power draw 0.42 W
- Light intensity comparable to 5W incandescent
- Low heat output
- Good build quality
- Great price
