Best cheap LED's?

I ordered some of the cheap led's off of amazon in the "warm white" color, but they are really a weird green color. Has anyone ordered any of the cheap LED's from amazon or ebay with good luck? Thanks for any help, I'd hate to order different ones and they suck too. My original bulbs are 1141's by the way.

I ordered these, so far so good.
I have only had them for 3 months, I picked up only 1 10 pack to see if they are good enough to replace all my lights, I will wait 6 months before I decide.

The $15 did have some kind of warranty, if I'd kept the receipt (who keeps receipts for light bulbs) and if I was willing to mail it down to the US. The $50/10 have no warranty but are 1/3 the cost.

I compared them side by side and honestly couldn't see a difference. It's my thought that they're all made in the same place, you just pay more for the packaged ones you get in the RV dealer.

Maybe 'cheap' is the wrong word to use, 'inexpensive' might be better, but if you think you're getting a better product buying a single bubble pack at an RV dealer, you're likely going to be disappointed.


I can never understand why people feel they need to comment on someone's question without actually offering any kind of solution.

No such thing as a GOOD deal, you get what you pay for...

After spending a small fortune a few years ago for a few from superbrightleds.com I found these on Amazon last year and figured why not try 'em. I splurged and ordered two 5-packs! They work fine! Click image for larger version

I bought inexpensive LEDs on Ebay. I bought cool white first and decided I didn't like the color, so bought some warm whites and gave the others away. For less than $1.50 each, delivered, they've been a good deal. The Ebay seller I used was great. I had the lamps in hand just a couple of days after I ordered them.

I bought some 40 of these, so far they have been good. Even work with our dimming although don't go down as dim as the old halogens did.

LED bulbs are a crapshoot. They are either not marked or inadequately marked or incorrectly marked for color and brightness, so you never know if what you are going to get is bright, dim, or tinted yellow, blue or green. The only way is to buy at a dealer where it can be returned if you don't like it (expensive) or from Ebay for cheap and you throw it away if you don't like but hey, it was cheap. I prefer the latter. It took me several tries but I wound up with what I needed and the overall cost, including throw-aways, was reasonable.

Be sure to buy about 20-25% more bulbs than you need so you will have spares. I have had bulbs go on the fritz, despite the fact that LED's are touted to last indefinitely. If you don't have spares when this happens, you will have a devil of a time matching color and brightness.

I would buy four try them out and if I liked them I'd buy more. I like the cool white light myself.

Try the website WWW.Wish.com, It is out of China so shipping takes 3-4 weeks but you can't beat the prices, Shipping is very cheap and I have had great luck with replacing all of the LED bulbs in my RV. The website sells a lot of different stuff, good luck

"Best" and "cheap" is an oxymoron! They don't go together!
