Feit Electric Porch Light

Feit Electric Porch Light

Click to view full size image

These were on clearance at Costco, while they say only to use 9w max LED, you could try to use a 60w incandescent bulb since this thing is all metal and glass with a ceramic socket (but i wouldn't advise doing so).

Anyway, these were bought to replace some 20 year old porch lights that were rusted out and no longer looked nice. Hopefully, these last longer since they're aluminum, but some may have their doubts because they're Feit. They also have Dusk-to-Dawn photosensors, but i wouldn't be surprised if they start day burning in a few years (which is why these are on a timer).

What does it matter that they are Feit? At least they have a ceramic socket. They'll be fine, I use similar Chinese made bronzed fixtures on our house (with USA CREE bulbs) they've been installed for at least 8 years now and look just fine. Mine also have ceramic sockets.

Yeah I agree, as long as they don't have integrated LED boards, there's really not much to go wrong with them. You can easily replace the photocell if need be. I would avoid buying integrated LED fixtures, especially outdoors since they usually all match. Like on each side of a door. If that board goes out, you may end up having to replace them all if the fixture or part is discontinued, since they won't match.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Worst case for the PC is to just bypass it if it becomes unreliable.

My neighbor has a PC switched floodlight, the PC needs replacing every few years.

I don't have anything against the fact this was made/sold by Feit, i just know that some people here seem to hate Feit for some reason.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

I don't hate Feit, I just hate that their LED lamps are hit or miss. I definitely like a lot of the stuff they sold in the past, as they were interesting.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

I don't hate them...I just won't buy their product because its cheap junk...why feed the beast? These fixtures look as if they maybe OK when it comes to quality.

A man has two lives to live, and the second one begins when he realizes he only has one.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.
