LED work lights cast a bright, directional light perfect for illuminating a workspace. They use far less electricity than comparable halogen lamps, and they also stay much cooler – a big plus in confined spaces like workshops. Here are three of the best LED work lights we’ve found on the market.
One of the best new entries in the world of LED light bulbs is the Advanced LED Light Bulb from 3M. Although 3M is a relative newcomer to the LED lighting sector, this new bulb is getting rave reviews for its efficiency and warm, incandescent-like light.
The newly-released line of LED lightbulbs from North Carolina-based Cree, Inc. could be a game-changer. They deliver all the performance and energy efficiency you’d expect from an LED bulb, with a familiar screw-in shape and a price tag of just $9.97.
LED light bulbs continue to evolve, and certain models are perfectly suited for particular applications. While the Philips 8W AmbientLED is great for table lamps and general room lighting, the LG 7.5W led bulb is ideal for overhead accent lighting and task illumination.
LED lighting isn’t just for high-tech fixtures in modern homes. Barn Light Electric has added a range of American-made LED lamps to their collection of classic, rustic fixtures.
The latest issue of Consumer Reports contains an update on their long-term testing of LED light bulbs, and the results are excellent. CR found that LED light bulbs (even those with a relatively expensive initial purchase price) pay for themselves several times over, and most bulbs maintain optimal performance after years of use.
LED light bulbs aren’t just getting cheaper and producing warmer light – they’re also getting brighter. The latest in Philips EnduraLED line is this 17-watt 1,100 lumen model: a 75 watt equivalent LED light bulb that means users can make the efficiency switch in bigger and brighter lamps around the house.
For a general purpose LED light bulb that will match the performance of a standard 40-watt incandescent, the Pharox 400 Tulip is a solid option. It can be used in dimmable light fixtures, and contains no mercury.
Good things really do come in small packages. G7’s ultra-efficient mini LED light bulb is perfect for night lights and decorative fixtures, which are frequently left on for hours at a time.
