I’m not sure what the regular price is on this but these are good basement/garage lights. I can’t remember what I paid for ours, but I think it was around $25 or something off amazon.

tbh, as much as I like Lee Valley, I did not like these lights. They aren't as bright as the 250W-equivalent Sansi bulbs that I bought, have an extremely blue tint to them thanks to the 6500K temperature, and were really plasticky and flimsy. I tried screwing one into its little extension and the whole thing basically disintegrated in my hand.

I guess if you really need one right now, this is a decent price, but otherwise, you can get better lighting elsewhere. I returned the ones I bought... they were just kinda crap.

Completely agree on the Sandi bulbs, they’re incredibly bright and a great bulb if you catch them on sale. These fixtures I posted here probably make for a better yard light than anything.

Any idea how well the Sansi bulbs would hold up in a open socket in an unheated Garage?

I have mine in my unheated garage and it works perfectly.

I have one in my garage fixture and two in my garage door opener and all three work just fine.

^ My only hesitation getting the Sansi bulbs is all the reviews of them blowing up and catching fire.

Usually heat kills LEDs, not cold. If the fixture is completely open you'll be fine.

I saw those as well but I've since bought a total of six of them. None of them are in enclosed fixtures, which I suspect is what causes most of the overheating issues and then the associated conflagrations.
