GE G25 globe 2700K clear medium baseI recently had to replace four 25-watt clear-globe bulbs in one of our bathroom’s vanities. I checked out a variety of possibilities and ultimately zeroed in on the GE Energy Smart 4.5-watt LED bulb.

I found the GE globe LED bulbs in a couple different packages as seen in the photo. According to the manufacturer, if used on average of three hours per day, it should last 13.7 years.

The bulb is really frugal on power consumption. The four GE LED bulbs use a combined 18 watts, vs. the 100 watts combined of the incandescent bulbs I replaced.

The LED bulbs are also dimmable. Handy, but my vanity doesn’t need that feature.

But what I really like is the light. It provides a very pleasing 2700K “warm” light that is very comparable (virtually indistinguishable) to the incandescent bulbs that I replaced.

The design of the bulb looks really cool, too, with a white light-radiating cone at the base on the inside.

I bought the GE LED bulbs at Walmart for just $4.96 each. I think that’s a great value. Over the life of the bulb, it should pay for itself about six times.

Give the GE LED globe bulb a try. I think you like it. The model information is listed on the package as: GE25 Globe 2700K Clear Medium Base.
