LED light bulbs -- heavy!


Recommended Posts

I like the idea of LED bulbs (last longer, burn cooler, less energy) but they are relatively heavy. For side-mounted bulbs (like on light fixtures flush against the ceiling), I am afraid that the weight of the LED may bend or damage the mounting as it was designed for traditional incandescent bulbs which are very very light. Anyone have problems after putting LED bulbs in sideways?

I want to replace all our CFLs with LEDs, but haven't yet so I can't help. I'm curious about the replies you get though.


Where have you bought your LED bulbs?


You can get them in packs of 3 at Costco but they are non-dimmable. The dimmable variety can be found individually at Lowe's.
