In a whim we purchaced some LED lamps from eBay. The bulbs are a standard automotive 1056 base. Total cost for 4 bulbs including shipping was $30.97. Not too bad and worth a test. Each bulb is 4 watts which is the same as each string
We tested the livingroom, kitchen, bedroom counter and bed overhead lights.
The results are posted on our web site
. But suffice it to say that we were disappointed at best from the results. We were not prepared for the stark color and dimness of the lighting.
End result - we are now still looking...Anybody need some 1 watt led modules to play with cheap???
