LED lights

Want to change my interior light bulbs to LED. Is there a supplier out there that don’t charge $ 10.00 a bulb? Also one that supply’s color bulbs.

Thanks

I bought some off eBay for like $12 for 20. They first sent the wrong ones, then wanted me to pay for the return postage. Told them OK, but it would be reflected in their feedback. They got the hint and send a prepaid label.
When I did finally get the right ones they seem to be OK, but they are polarity sensitive although it didn't matter in our rig as it's wired correctly. Just got the last two (out of over 60) done today. So far they seem to be working OK and none have failed although I did break the pins off one when I tried to orient it flatter. The seller said they are warm white but they are closer to natural white, but not as white as cool white.

I read on another forum that m4products.com is a good source, I haven't personally used them or compared their prices.

I also bought from M4, $7.95 each but would work no mater the polarity and were a true warm white. I'll probably buy more if the cheap ones start failing. I bought the cheap ones to get them all done at once rather then 10 at a time over 6 months (free shipping on orders over $75). I had to modify each light by removing the heavy cast metal reflector/heat sink that the original halogen lights needed. Even so some of the fixtures and material around some are melted and they don't make the lights anymore.

I bought my first few TT LED lights at Batteries Plus because I did n't know if I would like them. Two of them didn't work, took them back and they were quickly exchanged no questions asked.

I do like to go cheap once I know what I'm dealing with, but knowing that within the next five years if something goes wrong, I can just go to a Batteries Plus location with my receipt and get the light replaced immediately as long as they have them in stock.

Good luck getting that from Ebay.

For less than $1 a light I'm not worried about it!

Amazon,
I spent around 50 bucks, and have lots of extra lights.
I ended up liking the 48 led rectangle , and 60 led round led really well.
10 pack are about 14-19 bucks
Polarity sensitive is not all that important, just turn the wiring around
The ones I bought had the proper adapters for each kind of incandescent bulb socket

Use a lot less power ,I have seen claims of 10X less.For a boondocker or wal-mart over nighter saves on battery or generator use.
Also less power = less heat so a little less work for the AC.

Buy samples first, most LED suppliers don't list the correct color temperature. I don't dislike a blueish white but I wanted my lighting to be warm white as before and am having trouble getting them all the same. I have done most everything except the fluorescent, received some strips and voltage regulators and I plan on doing one this week to see if it will match the rest.
