    This is NOT A POLITICAL VIDEO!!! I'm a simple man... Also regarding Halogen light bulbs, it seems in countries with 240VAC they are designed such that their life is same or better than incandescent. In 120V of north America almost all I can see for halogen is half the life of incandescent for same power rating (make sure lamps run on same voltage and light output when comparing). In any case, I filled my table per my local values for my lamps, and some per my taste. you can always adjust the table values to your local numbers and taste and recalculate. LED still will get top point. and who cares if halogen scores a bit higher WHEN LED IS WAY HIGHER ANYWAY! and remember... THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL VIDEO!

    as a reptile owner not being able to purchase halogen bulbs makes it very very hard for me. Because I can't purchase them where I live. I need the heat production of traditional incandescent bulbs to actually keep some of them.

    I replaced my light bulbs with LEDs Most of them GX53 and they are still working the only room i could not replace with LEDs is my bathroom, when i go full Led in there it starts blinking. I think it is because the LED uses too little amount of electricity.

  28. Blake McNamara

    There many not be a great logical argument for old forms of lighting but in my opinion, the aesthetics are so much better and thus we should keep using them. Nobody wants to have horribly bright lights in every home and on every street as it just ruins the quaintness of the night time. I personally hate how intrusive LED lights are. Plus, I must say that there really seems to be so much nonsense about the planet dying within the next ten years like Y2K. Old forms of light energy may take up more energy but maybe we should just start producing more energy to supplement. I don't need the government to tell me what types of light bulbs I can and cannot buy nor do I this guy. He's certainly very intelligent and very entertaining but he seems to assert his opinions as facts as many other people have a habit of doing nowadays.

    I haven't had great luck with household LEDs. Seems like auto manufacturers seem to have high quality, long-lasting LEDs, so how come I can't find any decent LEDs at the store for household use? I've started using halogens because I'm tired of wasting money on LEDs that don't last. I've used different brands and have had issues with all I've tried.

    No joke, I tried smashing the bulb of one of those LED lights (looks like I use the same ones as in the video based on how they look) to see what was in it and was wondering why the heck I couldn’t break it. Took me more than five minutes to realize, “Wait, idiot… it’s not glass! It’s plastic!” Hah. For some reason, the way the bulb would bounce every time I hit it entertained me immensely. It was like a lopsided ping pong ball.

    I'm quite sad, because, real consumption wasn't comparent between bulbs and in particulary, the électrical spectrum consumption, I remember, in our EMC course during my engineering studies. The incandescent light bulb was the purest bulb with a perfect 230V/50Hz (as french electrical grid), and the worst one, was the LED one,with tons of hamonics, due to the internal DC/DC converter needed for the Leds. As I know, the electrical harmonics are worst enemies of electrical grids. It was a very interesting video, and I learnt some things.

    LED needs "driver", maybe LED have a lot of health in general, but those brake in a lot less than 2-3 kilo hours. When driver not bad, it gives LED more power than it can handle.

    Maybe someone can answer this: I know LEDs can have some electric faults, but it seems to me like they aren't lasting as long as the package says. How much of an effect does local peak voltage and fixture quality have on the LED bulbs?

  91. ElevatorMan5482

    Thing is most LED packages base their life on 3 hours of use per day. Almost everyone uses light bulbs nearly 4 times as long as that each day so that's 4 times less long
