The lightbulb is one of the most important inventions of the last two hundred years. Not only did it illuminate houses without the need for fire and thus make the home safer (fire generally isn’t safe, after all, nor are lamps run on gas or oil), but it showed that electricity could be bent to our will, and showed the people what that looked like.
Best 100 Watt LED Bulbs – On The Market
In the century and a half since Edison patented the light bulb (which he absolutely did not invent, but rather made a bit better), there has been surprisingly little change to the actual basis of the light. Sure, we’ve changed gasses we illuminate, but until the LED bulb, that was about it.
If you’re looking to find the best 100 Watt LED bulbs (E26/E27) for illuminating your home safely and inexpensively, this guide is here for you. First, let’s look at a table to compare the various bulbs we reviewed.
|Bulb||Wattage||Lifespan (Hours)||Lumens||Check Price|
|SUNMEG A19 LED Filament||10||25,000||1000|
|TOPCHANCES Smart Automatic Sensor||7||50,000||630|
|Philips 459180 3-Way 40/60/100||12||24,000||450/800/1600|
Before we go any further, I need to make something clear. These bulbs are not ‘100-watt’ bulbs, they are 100-watt EQUIVALENT bulbs. What that means is that they give off about as much light (measured in lumens) as you would be able to get out of a normal 100-watt bulb. These lightbulbs are providing you with the same light, with less than a fifth of the energy demand, which means that each time you install one, you’re reducing the cost of running that device considerably. If your electric bill is 200 dollars, and 20 percent of that is from lighting, and you replace all that lighting with LED bulbs, you may be able to save 80 percent or more, meaning you’ve literally just cut 32 dollars a month off of your electric bill. That’s 384j dollars a year you can save.
Now that we’ve gotten a general feel for the various products that we’ll be reviewing, it’s time that we take a look at the best 100 watts LED bulbs on the market today.
