If you are in Toronto, anyone, i was JUST 20 minutes ago at the DOLLAR STORE at Vaughan and St Clair West. There is a door from both streets leading in but I bought them on the Vaughan street entrance across from the cash register. There is over ¾ of a tall shelf of 5 shelves and I saw a few different kinds. Even ones for chandeliers and they were all $3. and some change......I can't remember the exact number but it was whatever was listed at the beginning of this thread and you just grab a coupon for each one that is there on the shelves as well

I meant to just say, that as of 20 minutes ago there are still a ton of them at this store

Are these really that hard to find? I see tons in the dollaramas in KW. And Lowes and Rona are selling the 6/7 watt one for the same price after coupon.

The store here only had 400 lumen ones. Not too useful. So I passed.

The packaging of the 11 watt dimmable states "Not for use in totally enclosed luminaires".

Bought six of them, but two didn't work. Cheap but I guess you get what you pay for.

Actually just found a bunch downtown London. Now cheap enough that my whole house will be led by weeks end.
Guess I should return the ones I got from costco. Unless there is a real difference!

I found them at the Midland location! I picked up 3 of the 60 watt equivalent LED bulbs. Put one in my kitchen and it's pretty nice.
I doubt they'll last 22 years like the package says. LOL.

I just purchased a cheap rotary style dimmer from lowes.

This exact model:
http://www.lowes.ca/dimmers/lutron-dim- ... 27126.html - $8.48
(even cheaper if you don't want the glow version - just lowes search "rotary dimmer")

Installed it my bathroom (with help from an RFD'er on wiring) and it's working beautifully with the 11W LED bulb.

No where does it mention it's compatible with LEDs. Only says incandescent and halogen. I took a chance anyway and it works great. Glad I didn't go and spend $30 on a "compatible" LED dimmer.

Going to try to pick up a few more using the $6 off coupon.

can we install LED bulb outside? I thought lowest working temperature is around -20 degree, but we can get -25 degrees in Ontario easily..

Based on the chandelier style I just picked up at dollarama the package indicates a -40 temperature.

Yes, you can use LED's outside. They actually work better in the cold than any other type.

Do the E12 candle LED bulbs not dim as well as the regular 11W bulbs for anyone else?
I notice the 11W bulb can get REALLY dim, which is perfect. However the 5.5W one does not get that dim before completely shutting off. No where near as dim as the 11W one.

Maybe it's your dimmer switch? I have three of the E12 candle LEDs on a dimmer switch in my study and they dim right down to moonlight-ish levels. The dimmer switch is an older style one made before LEDs.

I have been to two stores, St. Laurent/Donald (saturday) and Elgin St (monday) and both
are well stocked with all four types.

As has been noted, 11W lamp causes RF interference. The 5.5W candelabra bulb seems clean.
