Any good LED candelabra style lights for a chandelier?
« on: December 11, 2011, 06:10:57 am »
I can't find anything good.  I've tried everything stocked at the local big box stores.  I would prefer a nice 2700k color and ability to Dim.  They will be visible on the chandeliers so having half the light occupied by a base isn't ideal.  Anyone have anything they could suggest?

I have tried LEDs in a track-light instead of the original halogen bulbs.  The yellower 2700K LEDs do look much warmer than the ice cold white from the 3500K ones.  I have one issue with the LEDs on the GEJasco 45606 dimmer.  The LED's can flash at a very low intensity setting.  I went back to the halogen bulbs even though they don't live as long.  I console myself that the halogens use about half the watts incandescent bulbs do for the same lumens (light output).   Perhaps GE/Jasco will upgrade their 45606 and 45613 dimmers to work better with LEDs, since that's the future.
