Let's hope it is not that damn nitrocellulose that ping=pong balls are made of....that stuff burns like mad!

Kink!

Did it pop out again Dave, or did you just hide it at the back with the kink still in it?!

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Do you normally go around squeezing light bulbs? If not and it doesn't fall off like it does on some of the FEIT products I'd call it good enough, I'd be more interested in how long they last in service, the CRI, and the light distribution.

If you want to see a snowcone LED built like a tank, check out the SORAA LEDs.

If these are the GE Basic LED, they designed them to only last 7500 hours! I understand why they made 60 watt bulbs only last 1000 hours, but there is NO EXCUSE for that short of a LED life!

Atceast you wouldn't have to worry about one of these shattering if you dropped it!

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

I've already shattered two filament LEDs by dropping them this weekend while organizing my collection... The Philips Warmglow might be interesting to see the driver board for so now that it's ruined I intend to further dismantle it.

Lol, a few friends and I lit up a steel drum full of those over the summer. Neighbors almost called the fire department because they thought it was a gas leak that ignited.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

What? That is pure junk! I'm pretty sure you could crush the soft cover with the palm of your hand, it will be flat like a tire! But seriously, these GE LED lamps are crap.

@ jrmcferren: You said yourself this is a baseline LED. Designed to be a cheap as possible. Better ones exist (and better brands exist too, GE isn't what it used to be unfortunately). 7500HR is nothing to sneeze at. In a home, that's still about 7 years assuming 3 hours of use every day. Most lights in homes are used less than that. My house was built in 2003 and still has some of the original 1000 hour incandescents! In a fixture you don't use often these would be great. They're a few bucks cheaper than the good quality LEDs and if a 1000 hour incandescent lasts 10 years in that application, this piece of junk will still last 75 years.

@ wide-lite: LOL I've said that before. Not sure if I'm the original one to coin that though. I actually have three Utilitech (Panasonic) LEDs that literally are PAR20 lamps with half a ping-pong ball glued to the end. Bought them way back in 2011. They're METAL! They're rated 430 lumens, use 7.5 watts, 3000K (but more like 3500K) dimmable (barely lol). The things still work fine though. I wonder if they've dimmed at all. They're used in the same fixture so they all get the same use. If they have dimmed out they've at least done so consistently. They were just under $10 a piece back then. I'd say LEDs have come a long way since then! But like anything, once they've perfected something they come out with a crappy "economy version". And here it is! lol.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.
