LED bulbs are the next big thing for the house. Actually, they’ve been the next big thing for awhile now, but they’ve been too expensive for msot people that I know to take the plunge. A bulb that lasts 10 years is great, but paying $10 or more for a lightbulb is a tough proposition, even though they save energy and produce light almost as good as incandescent bulbs. Fortunately, Philips understands, and Philips is going to lower the entry barrier for the LED world. Philips will offer their A16 LED bulbs for 2 for $5.
Now I’ve got a couple of LED bulbs, and I do like them, but at the same time, they’re costly. I bought some LED holiday lights to use as incidental lighting on my stairs, which I like quite a bit, but the individual bulbs are still hard to swallow price-wise. (Also literally, because they’re glass.) At this price point, though, I’m thinking about making the switch, or at least buying up as many LEDs as I can afford at one time to replace my old bulbs as they burn out. The light might not be as nice as the old days, but for that price, I think I’ll be okay.Technorati Tags: 2.50 led bulbs, a16 led bulbs, Appliances, cheap led bulbs, led, led bulbs, philips, philips 2 for 5 bulbs, philips a16 led bulbs, philips has 2 for $5 led bulbs, philips led bulbs
