We don't boondock so I can't speak to the power consumption. I forgot to order one for the outside light but now I have plenty of spare bulbs.
Install is pretty much a snap. Select the proper pig-tail (they come with 3 choices), clean the mounting area with alcohol, stick it into the fixture and plug it in. Brainless and painless, perfect for me.
I bought the same style and really like them. I paid about half as much and they had free shipping.
I bought them from ebay seller “ouyuo2010” He seemed to have the best price, however, he would have the same unit listed multiple times at different prices, so just keep your eyes open. Watch the color temperature. If you want something that looks like traditional incandescent bulbs you need to stick with a color of about 2500-3500oK.
The only issue I had was with the supplied foam adhesive. I had heard this could happen, so I changed it to different thermal foam adhesive
(found in one of our labs at work). I have heard of people using a little construction adhesive too.
