Seems a little dim though no? 45W equivalent/500 lumens--does anyone use bulbs that dim?

I just bought a set of 6 A19 "40 Watt equivalents" at Rona yesterday for $2.00 each which I thought were a very good price and those were non-dimmable ones.
They were rated 450 lumens and are more than bright enough where I use them.

Somehow I find the LED bulbs brighter than the incandescents even if the lumens are the same or even less.

You can always go to Dollarama and buy one "40 Watt equivalent" for $3.00 and see if they are bright enough for you or not.
Then decide.

Not seeing anything about free shipping... Is there a promo code or something that has to be entered?

EDIT: Found it - use pclivingfs24 to get the free shipping applied to your order

No. I had to switch back to the original CFLs and finally just put the replacement LED bulbs in yesterday. This time I smartened up and bought Philips (but GE is great too!)

The bulbs I received (all 12) had a nearly visible flicker/strobe. Any movement at all in the room, and you could see it. For example, waving your hand or something thin like a piece of string would show several distinct hands or strings, just like a strobe light.


Just being in a room lit by those bulbs made me tired, made my eyes hurt, and made me feel physically ill. It took a month to notice a trend and figure out what was going on. Hopefully these dimmable ones are better because I don't wish it on anyone.
I don't have any of these RayonLED bulbs, but I have noticed strange behaviour with some other makes.
A lot of them don't work well when used in fixtures that have some non-mechanical on/off switch. They flash or flicker - in one case the LED bulb is fine for days and then suddenly starts to flash at a fairly slow rate for a few minutes and then stops and works fine for days.

i find 45W an odd one... i usually see 40 or 60... and i find 40 too dim and usually go with the 60... been hard debating if i should give this a try tho

I found it odd too, but I think they are just working back from the lumens.
A 40 watt incandescent bulb was typically 450 lumens, so 500 lumens more or less equates to a 45 watt incandescent bulb.

But remember that with the old bulbs the wattage indicated the power it took to run it, not the brightness.
I have had 40 watt incandescent bulbs that seem brighter than some 60 watt incandescent bulbs.

I would actually worry more about the flicker of the non-dimmable ones that was mentioned.

One option would be to just by two bulbs which was an option on the website and get free shipping on that and try them out.
You would miss the special free shipping offer, but if you like them and they are bright enough, then buy the lot and maybe add a few other items to get the total over $49.- to get free shipping that way later. Or wait for another "24 hour" free shipping event.
From what I remember the price of these bulbs in 40 quantity is good for quite a while - they may just run out of stock.

PS: I have bought from primecables a few times - quality of the products so far has been quite good, actually excellent for the price.
Had an issue once where they forgot to include a small item in the shipment - got a credit without any hassle which I applied on my next order.

What about brightness and flicker?
Can you compare the brightness to existing 40 and 60 watt incandescents?

are these CSA approved? If not, then insurance may not cover it if a fire breaks out due to this.

in case of fire, good luck finding that they are not CSA approved :)
anyways cUL will be as good as CSA approval. both known and acceptable approval markings for these sort of items.

these look like older generation lamps ... probably trying to clear old decrepit stock at 67c/bulb ... :)

What exactly do you mean by "older generation"?

They draw 6 watts which for a dimmable 500 lumen bulb is very good.
CRI is not specified, but the brand new ones I bought at Rona have CRI specified as >75 which is essentially not specifying it at all.
Can't imagine any LED bulb to be less than 75

I don't see anything that would qualify them as "older generation" - the biggest difference of LED bulbs I bought 4 or 5 years ago is that those bulbs were not as efficient.
I just checked a Luminus bolb from a few years back - it is rated at 7 watts for 450 lumens and it was non-dimmable; dimmable bulbs always take more power for the same light output than the equivalent ones (same manufacturer, same generation) that are not dimmable.

It meant the bulb was certified by UL for in accordance with Canada and US safety standards.
