    Odd that lack of knowledge becomes so evident by LED skeptics who ought not comment until they know much more about how LED engineered solutions with the appropriate accreditation, out performs traditional, energy-hog incandescent or florescent illumination experienced by the human eye! I worked for the man who crippled AT&T, founded MCI and no one thought wireless technology was possible. 847-845-4384

    While I love the development, I don’t like light getting dimmer.
    A normal 100W lightbulb would be around 1700 lumen (
    Replacing it with the bug iLumi gives 1100 lumen. (

    1100 is a lot less than 1700. It’s a little like someone selling a 60W lightbulb as 100W replacement – saving up to 40% of the energy!!1! :p

    Works better in EU/240V though – we only get about 1300 lumen from 100W.

    And 15W is a lot better than 60W. So I don’t know why the false math is there to start with…?
