Nowwaitaminute!

If you’re a TRUE BLF member you have LED bulbs, in which case you never need to change them. Unless you’re dissatisfied w/ the tint, output, or just want to mod it for more throw or flood….

therefore, the answer is 0.

Unless you’re changing FROM an old incan or CFL bulb TO a new LED bulb for the first time! Wink Or if you’re changing over a friend’s house to LED bulbs!

Joining the ranks of the 13 merry linkers – Brilliant! Very funny.

I just had to check to make certain I wasn’t replying to a post from 6 months ago. Smile

+1

I disagree

Don't think the bulbs from China are any good

Can't take the tint and it's too low CRI

Gotta go... and leave y'all hanging about the light bulb mod I just started, but won't finish for a week or two.Tongue Out

…since a burned out bulb is an excuse to use our flashlights.

…since we’re not afraid of the dark, the dark is afraid of us.

…since our LEDs have a much nicer tint than that incan, anyway.

I blame Garry Bunk for posting about the light bulb he saw at Home Depot that I know have to purchase!
