[Dollarama] $4 100 watt equivalnet LED Bulb

Retailer:

More offers from Dollarama
Dollarama has 100 watt equivalent warm and daylight bulbs for $4. I think they had other watt variants, but I don't remember the price. The box says its good for nine years, which I doubt. Will I set my place on fire if I get a Dollarama one? Should I instead be getting a brand name? Does anyone know if they can work in an enclosed fixture? Thanks!

It means they're 1/5th the wattage with comparable brightness to the old style bulbs.

Not good. I bought one and it's flickering sometime.

It will say on the package if it's suitable for enclosed fixtures. If it doesn't mention it then they aren't. I know most of the Feit bulbs at Lowes are. https://images.lowes.ca/img/l/4250/017801153750_ca.jpg

Dollarama have had the $4 100w-equivalent LED bulbs for quite a while. Non-dimmable. I have one, and it works fine. Good deal for a single bulb.

But they have added a new variety recently at the same price, with cool and warm variants, so past reliability experience might not apply to this new model.

I was going to say the exact same thing lol... Just bought a 6 pack as backup to the philips im using (had 2 bulbs as backup before, will become 8 by monday).

Also note that Costco has 3 packs on sale for $11 every so often (think last time was May). I think the only option for that was 2700k tho.

If you want better quality (i actually prefer/using them), HD has Philips 100W (both 2700 and 5k) @ $13 for 2. Its more expensive but likely will last longer (also A19 socket if you have a fixture that won't take A21).

My experience with Dollarama light blub is bad. I stocked up some 60w LED when they were on sale with Ontario energy rebate. Label on the box indicates that it will last for many years with normal usage. The light bulbs went out like Christmas tree light. Final cost works out to be more expansive than name brand or from Costco. I would not recommend.
