Oh, yes! You are quite right. Thank you for answering the question. BTW, I still need 3 LED bulbs at least for my rooms.
THANK YOU so much.

I remember IKEA use to have LED bulbs. 2 bulbs/6.99$. 6W in MTL.
I think it is suitable to light a room <24 squar meters or in a dark hall.
I will go and check in IKEA next week end if this thread still here, I will post something.
Thanks!
Canadian Tire has this LED bulb:

40 Watts equivalent, 450 Lumens, actual wattage required is 6 Watts.
Sounds pretty much the same as the Ikea bulb.
Regular price is $6.99 but there is a $5.00 coupon on the shelf where the light is sold bringing the price down to only $1.99 per bulb.

Best is to go on line and check the stock at your local CTC before you go there - mine had no stock until a few days ago

What colour light bulbs do you all prefer to use? I'm looking to buy some LED light bulbs, and the natural white and the daylight light bulbs, in particular, looks nice.

I use 3000k ("warm white plus", same color as halogen, I find cool white and daylight to be too cold, better suited in an office/commercial/sterile environment uses :p
Except in the basement where they painted the ceiling and walls yellow, cool white to offset it.

Get 2700K. I just switched a few 2700K halogen to 3000K LED and I hate it. I thought it would be a small difference - it is not. They're way too bright and white. I'm going to do all the rest of my LEDs switch outs as 2700K.

lol for me it's the opposite, I just got some dimmable 2700k because the 3000k were not but boy are they yellow, too warm to my taste.
Now another important factor the the CRI of the LED, you'll want at least 80+ or otherwise the color rendering will be terrible

Does anyone know how to buy the "small" LED bulbs. I mean the "tiny" LED bulbs, not the things sold in IKEA and CTC. Like the ones are put together in a flashlight.

I have about 60 Phillips bi-pin MR16 LEDs in my house but they never seem to go on sale and also are not yet eligible for the $5 coupon (which is, btw, applicable after HST) as they don't have an Energy Star label on them (even though they meet the requirement). They are $20 at Home Depot. I have only replaced the 3 above my kitchen island as those are on about 3 hours a day, the most of any MR16's in my house. With that usage it will take 4 years to break even.

Are these the 12 volt lights?
I just bought two for above the kitchen counter from China, BuyInCoins - $US 3.27 each with free shipping.

You need to know the voltage, size and type of base or the incandescent bulb designation, then try google to see if that bulb exists as an LED lamp and who sells it.
That at least is what I do.

Electronupdate on youtube semi-famous for his LED teardowns pretty much hated the slim-style, but liked nearly every other Phillips up until this latest one.

As always, caveat emptor - especially with LED bulbs do your homework first.

Any idea why one Philips 60w equivalent at HD is 10.5W and another is 8.5W. Aside from the actual wattage, they seem identical.

One is dimmable the other one not.
Dimmable LED bulbs need more electronic circuitry to drive the LED so they are more expensive and less efficient than non-dimmable LED bulbs.
