The price of an 800 lumen 10 watt LED 6O Watt Incandescent light bulb has come down to around $5 a piece! You should swap every one of them out and get a credit for everyone one that you bought, if our President would truly get with the idea of energy independence it would happen a lot faster!
The Mercury in a Fluorescent bulb is so dangerous to your health that I often wonder if it was part of a British "plot" to concur the United States!
I am even thinking of retrofitting my 48" shop lights with screw in sockets with these bulbs in them. I will have to check the lumen rating of a 48" bulb to get the equivalent number of screw in sockets thought and gut out the transformer.....One 40 watt T12 puts out 2600 lumens so it would mean a double fixture would need about six screw in socket fixtures retrofitted. Won't do it at this time but it is on the horizon!
I have hated the Fluorescent bulb ever since I pointed out to the eighth grade Catholic school teacher
