Cree 100W replacement LED
Cree's new 100W replacement LED is their brightest bulb to date. Click through for a closer look at what it has to offer.
Neutral color tone
The Cree 100W replacement glows at a low color temperature of 2,700 K. The extra brightness gives it a more whitish glow than its predecessors of the same color temperature, which have more of a yellow tone.
The 100W replacement is compatible with most dimmers and fully omnidirectional, both of which make for a very decent reading light.
Bigger heat sinks, too
The 100W replacement also uses a bigger set of heat sinks to help keep it cool and ensure that it lasts for 25,000 hours, as Cree promises.
Cree's new bulb will retail for $19.97 at Home Depot, and that's about as low a price point as you'll find for an LED with this many lumens. If, as expected, it earns Energy Star certification in the next few months, you might be able to get it for even less.
