LED lamp test

I decided to test LED lamps at my parents place. So I bought 3 LED lamps – 4W, 3W and 1W.

In all cases light is very narrow.

Wodmeng GU10-1W warm white 2800K, China: 1W lamp – it looks like there is a hole in the ceiling with a very sunny day out there. I like it if it is a bath or other narrow room. Gives a natural daylight feeling.

Wodmeng PK-E44W-NW E14 Led lamp cup with 4W power was much too bright for a place with a 2,5m high ceiling. 70 degrees angle of light ls very much like that of a flashlight. This lamp could be suitable for a workshop where you need bright light in a tight space.

Sanje MR16G48-E27 3W lamp is very much like that 4W, but its leds have no glass cover, so I am not sure about it’s abilities to survive in wet environments. I put it at my bed so that I could read books before sleep, but 3W is still too bright and irritating.

4W lamp costed about 7EUR, other lamps were about 5 EUR each. Shop gave me 2 years warranty.

I must say, that I need no more than 1W lamp. Everything else is much too bright for my eyes. I suggest to use led light reflected against someting, white ceiling for example. In no case it may shine directly into the eyes.
