    Have you guys seen these? I keep the Cuda at my daughter's house. It's new and has a 3 car garage but they only have screw in light fixtures in the garage. It's like working in a cave with a candle. My son-in-law ordered some of these and all I can say is wow! He went from a CFL bulb to LED. Just unscrew the CFL and replace with the LED and adjust the angle and Bob's your uncle. He bought the 60 watt lights good for 50,000 hours. They have 80 watt lights that are way brighter but cost much more. So, if you have screw in light fixtures in the garage, basement, etc. and don't want to bother changing fixtures or installing LED tube lights, this is definitely the way to go.

        This is the important part for the new LED's coming out:

        [2 YEAR WARRANTY]–- We are manufacture ,We make this light a better surface treatment of aluminum and better quality. 24 Months warranty means we've got you covered! 7*24H Service, Contact us for an easy and fast replacement. Updated Garage Lighting.

        AFAIK, if they stop working, there's no way to fix them, you can't just change the bulbs like other lights. That happened to me with an LED shop light I bought. It just stopped working after about 6 months.

        I upgraded my fluorescent tube shop lights to LED tubes. If one goes out I just go to Lowes or Home Depot for another tube.

        The screw in type was purchased on Amazon by my son-in-law for their house where they mainly use the garage to park cars in and store stuff. They really brighten up the place, according to him. He recommends installing them with the lights off as they almost blinded him.

        Isn't Bob everybody's uncle?

        I put the tube lights in my space - it's so much brighter than the old bulbs. Have to wear sun glasses - thinking about growing some Marijuana...

          It's easy to convert fluorescent shop fixtures to LED. Just search YouTube. Al you do is remove the ballasts and plug in some LED tubes. Instant on and much brighter.

          Another option for screw in fixtures is:

            I didn't remove the ballasts - you think that's why it is so bright?

            I'm no expert but I think you are supposed to remove the ballasts before plugging in LED tubes in place of fluorescent ones.
