* We see only three narrow bands of color. This is why using three phosphors seems to give us the equivalent of white light. (TV tubes, florescent tubes, etc).

Like "H#!!" if I am going to buy my light bulbs from Apple and have to use an iPhone to turn them on. I use this thing called a switch. Works pretty well.

So far, no LED bulb I have found is light enough to use in a spring-arm light as is shown in the add referenced above. I keep looking.

I fixed Christmas LED rope under cabinets on the kitchen. On the ceiling there I had that luminescent bulbs with snap-in sockets, I got tired to replace them, so replaced all fixtures by Cree fixtures bought in Home Depot. 13W each, instead of 18, but much brighter as the result. And I hope they are more reliable.

Are those the sealed semi-flush ones? I went to get some but the only had two, so I would up with PAR shaped ones.

I drive a 240 Polar . Didn't know they were prone to melting, though. I use bulbs as there are no road legal replacements with LEDs over here. I do have a third brake light with red LEDs, and if I hit the brakes, these indeed light up noticably quicker than the bulbs...
