How long do these bulbs usually last?
$10 for a light bulb is quite steep...

What do you guys use the colour changing feature for?

Just curious, never understood the appeal

Hope we see these in Ontario. Coloured smart bulbs are so freakin' expensive.

I own a bunch of sengled smart bulbs and was looking at their coloured bulbs and the pricing is just so ridiculous compared to 2700k/5000k bulbs. Like $35 for one bulb!
Will definitely be on the look out for these next time I am in Costco.

Amazing Bulbs. Bought 45 of these bulbs from the Source for $19.99 per pkg of 3. They work really well so far. Been using for almost a year now. Only one failed so far and easily replaced. I believe Globe is out of Montreal too.

Nice not having to deal with a hub. and the App is slick, works really well for automated scenes and Google Home, and Alexa.

This https://fcc.report/FCC-ID/2AQUQGBTYWE3L/4239643.pdf FCC link has images of the LED board, If we could figure out what the writing on the 3 IC chips are would be easy to get this running in Tasmota.

For those of you who have bought this already, can you comment on the brightness of the non-white colours at 100% brightness?

Last Boxing Day, I bought the Merkury 75W colour bulbs from Walmart for $10. They were nice and bright when displaying a white colour, but the colours (red, green, blue, purple, etc.) were very significantly dimmer even at 100% brightness. I'd like to know if these bulbs have the same problem.
This would be my only complaint with them but I'm not surprised and would still say its a great deal, app works and google assistant integration seems good out the box.
But yes with white its fairly bright but when switching to other colors its significantly dimmer, like maybe 50-75% dimmer in my guess. I think thats just how it is tho as white uses on all colors.
However I have RGB LED strips and somehow they are not nearly as dim with colors.

I don't think I would use the colors too much in the bedroom, however in my basement theater I do use the RGB on the led strips and find it useful (Basement all red for raptors nba finals games, I like the aqua color otherwise).
