Brightest E26/27 LED Bulb?

Recommended Posts

I have an older 5 Socket screw-in Edison fixture that I'm thinking about putting LEDs in. I was surprised to find my options limited for bright LED bulbs that have passable color quality.

It'd be cool to get high-quality LEDs in cornbulb style lights that draw around 100 Watts. - I feel like the technology is here, but there's probably not enough incentive to manufacture a consumer style socket past using it for practicals (which don't need to be that bright)

These are the brightest I can find. Anyone have any other thoughts?

Those two are Mogul base, though. Do they even make a Mogul to Edison adapter--- I know they have an adapter to decrease Mogul sockets to Edison but haven't ever seen the other way around.

I actually picked up a couple from batteries and bulbs in the us, the guy was surprised it was still around. You could tell it was older packaging. They’re on amazon, too! (E26 to e39)



You never really know the color quality without testing , I doubt the corn bulb you listed is manufactured to account for the values that matter to us, too (like r9, etc).
