Phillips 60W LED

Gary Johnson-2
I have just finished testing the Phillips 60W LED light bulbs, both
Daylight and Soft White, as a possible replacement for the 60W
incandescent bulb. I bought them at Home Depot in a four pack for $5.97.
The Phillips 60W has an internal linear regulator rather than a pulse
width modulator, so produces no dirty electricity. A Stetzer meter does
not change when this bulb is turned on. The Phillips 100W bulb, on the
other hand, has a pulse width modulator, and does produce dirty
electricity. The Phillips 60 W has a constant lumen output for most of
the 60 Hz half cycle, with a shallow notch (28% dip) at the end of the
half cycle. By comparison, an ACE Hardware 60W incandescent bulb has a
10% dip during a half cycle, due to heating and cooling of the filament.
The Phillips 60W Daylight delivers 9.9 times the lumens per watt of the
ACE 60W incandescent, and the Soft White delivers 8.4 times the lumens
per watt. I would judge the Phillips 60W bulbs to be electromagnetically
as good as incandescent bulbs for those with EHS, and far more efficient.

If these bulbs do not work for someone with EHS, it would be for some
other reason, perhaps the spectrum of light. I would like to receive
reports from sensitives who have tried these bulbs, either positive or
negative.

Hi Gary,
I have them throughout my house, they cause no problems.  I have also tested them and found the same things you did. Good bulbs.. I got them for about $2 when they were on sale here, they are quite expensive now.

thanks, Gary, for sharing that.  
i purchased some of the Phillips 60W LED light bulbs, daylight (5000 lumen),
and feel very good about them.  now i know why.  thanks so much!!!
they certainly help me see what i’m working on better than what i was using!
i’ll buy more now that i know it’s not just wishful thinking.
love, patricia
