Jim changed over three of our pot lights from halogen to LED lighting. We used Philips Accent LED Indoor Capsule.
It uses 3.5 watts (170 lumens) G4 pin, equivalent of a 20 watt (250 lumens) halogen and it is cool to the touch, not hot like the halogen. Plus it gives off a brighter light. I was very pleased with how much light I had at night to knit and being able to see each stitch easily. And at $11 each it is affordable for the reported average life of 13.7 years. We bought ours at a Home Depot…Lowes didn’t have them.
Since amazon.com wants $16.52 for the same thing, we drove back to Santa Fe Home Depot and got four more LEDs for the three pot lights above the kitchen sink and one over my side of the bed where I read every night.
More and more RVers are switching over to LEDs to conserve battery use when boondocking or, like Jim, with a desire for safety to eliminate the heat of a halogen….energy efficiency and less heat makes LEDs very desirable.
Remember, you are loved.
