Success!

I'd like to thank the academy, my parents, the good Lord and my friends here at the owner's forum.

I have extracted the light bulb and will be ordering the replacements. You're all invited over for dinner when they come in.

Thanks again!

DITTO!

But we did compromise!

Almost all the bulbs are modified Warm White bulbs that have a regular old automobile 5611 base (BA15) and I modified them to the 921 base that plugs into the normal ceiling light fixtures, using the plastic bases from first batch of cheap China LED's. The one in the picture below is the brightest WARM WHITE bulbs (66 LED's) I could find as they are over 300 Lumen, where the average for the others I looked at were about 160 Lumen. DW was unhappy with the original Warm White LED's as they were dim and difficult to read by. She is happy now!! And that means I am HAPPY now! The LED's are around 2800 Kelvin which makes them perfect for the TT.

The only lights that are not Warm White lights are above the kitchen sink and in the bathroom. They are ultra bright Day Light LED's, which makes it so much easier when preparing meals in that area and the ones in the bathroom help with my shaving shaving, as my eyes are half closed in the morning.

The BA15 base is a direct replacement for the fixture above our kitchen table. The 2 bulbs give PLENTY of light for reading or what ever else we are doing at the table.

They really brighten up the TT with the extra Lumen.

The price has been reduced to $9.99 from the original $12.99 price, old picture.. sorry.

Just my thoughts,

Don

Wow that is an interesting solution. I am wondering about the brightness of what's coming. I'll report back.

I just ordered the paddle ones that Seann45 mentioned; hopefully they will be as bright as originals. Does anyone know if the bulbs are the same in the round lights over the kitchen and dinette as the rest? I didn't check those, and now am concerned if the bulb is vertical in those, or horizontal like the double fixtures.

I wonder if the paddle version would be good for the brake lights?

Just to update you on my next LED project....
Each year I improve on our TT's LED lighting. Started out with the cheap Chinese versions and watched them go one by one and start to heat up at the end of their life. So, to keep up with new and improved products that will also meet our needs I end up rewiring different base models, because they do not have the same Warm White (around 2800 - 3000 Kelvin as house lighting is), with greater Lumens. So in the near future I will be purchasing a few of these to try out. My current modified LED's are 300Lumens (still could be brighter) and the ones below are 600Lumens. So I guess I will be pulling out the old solder and soldering iron to adapt them the the 921 Wedge Base fixtures in the TT. That should do the trick and make DW even happier. They even make a dimmer for these, but at $25, we can do with out them.

Here is a link that has Warm White 500 - 550Lumens and the Wedge Base adapters, for anyone interested. I will probably purchase 1 or 2 of these also.

Just my thoughts,

Don

For those interested in a BRIGHT (550Lumen) WARM WHITE LED that has adapters for different bases (including the Wedge Base) check these out. I decided last night I will purchase a few of these (and forget about adapting different LED bases to the Wedge Base) to test out and will let you know how they are. They should be a lot brighter than my 300Lumen LED's that I now use. May even buy the dimmer switch for it.

COB04-WW Warm White Elite Series Super Bright COB LED Plate - M4 Products

Will add a little more load to the batteries, but they can handle it.

Has anyone tried this LED? Let us know your opinion..

Don

M4 has a sample color range on their web page, will give you an idea as to what each looks like.
