The tek-tite is carrying the vivid LED light... I have a couple and hate
them. The are cold blue tint, very much the look of older flourescent
lights. I searched quite awhile and finally found a site that has
alternative "warmer" led lights. Just got a couple from them this last
Monday and they definitely are a much "wamer" coloring. More acceptable in
The prices are pretty reasonable. I choose to use the LED lights because I
have a hutch with the little spot lights in them and was going through the
bulbs constantly because the automation system was cycling the power in the
morning and evening. I'd spend $40/year on the darn bulbs burning out --
for little 15 Watt bulbs! The led bulbs cost about $15, use about 2 Watts.
They can dim, but you will see flicker.... dimmers change the duty cycle for
the bulb and it makes a 50/60hz strobing more apparent.
