My shop is a big old shipping container parked next to the freeway. The security light by the door was going out about every 3 weeks if not sooner. I think it must have been effected by the vibration from the road. I changed to one of the "100watt" equivalent curly bulbs last year and have not had to change bulbs since. The bulbs are physically a bit larger so getting them into the enclosed fixture took a bit of wiggling.

I'm impressed that something that we are being forced to change to is not only more efficient cost wise but works better than did the old style one. Nice change that. Don't tell the government they'll get all upitty............m

Have a look at the new led nav lights from NASA instruments they are cheaper than the lopo range and just as good.
