Polaroid doesn't make or sell light bulbs. God only know where these things came from.

@narquespamley: I'm not sure your comment is accurate. If you go to the polaroid website and click on Support, there is an option for getting support on their LED bulbs.

Justdeals.com is a strange website. Hover your mouse over any of the other sale items to view them but it goes back to the first item after a few seconds. I can't figure it out. However, I have bought from them and they are a very reliable.

Look at the lablel. 650 lumens doesn't even meet the standard, where there is a standard, for a 60 watt bulb, which is 850 lumens. If you want a bright floodlight, it isn't this one.

@laholly: Although you may be right that many of the 60 Watt bulbs produced 850 lumens of light, that is not a standard.

Light bulbs used to be sold by how much power they consumed. A regular 60W incandescent bulb can produce different amounts of light depending on their filament composition, the glass staining, and any gas that could be inside the bulb (argon, nitrogen, krypton, xenon).

Today, light bulbs should use a standard measure of visible light and not how much power it consumes because LED, CFL, and Incandescent all produce different amounts of visible light for the same amounts of power. Even within each category (LED for example), will produce different amounts of light depending on the manufacturer and efficiency factors of the LED.

So we are at least lucky they tell us it's 650 lumens which is one of the easy-to-understand standards. You can use that number and compare it with other bulbs to determine its relative brightness.

@laholly: I'd like to find a 850 lm 65W BR30. Can you show where 850 is the standard and where they are sold? From this list, it looks like 650 is about the average...

These come in white, but when you shake them, they turn to color.

An incandescent BR30 will only put out 620 lumens at 65W. Here's a much better LED bulb -> http://www.amazon.com/Philips-423798-13-Watt-Indoor-Dimmable/dp/B008NNZSI0/ . Notice it is also way more expensive, mainly because Phillips actually makes LED bulbs. Polaroid, is that even a company?

Estimates on average lumens per wattage from the Federal Trade Commision. About 800 for 60 watt incandescent.

What a terrible price, I pay about $2 to $3 per bulb for this style all day long locally...

@johnt007871: Yes, but a reflector bulb like a BR30 is not as efficient as a normal bulb. Go look at incandescent BR30s - you'll see they put out around 600 lumens universally.
