The bulb to beat

Cree's 60-watt Replacement LED uses 9.5 watts to put out 800 lumens of light, making it one of the most efficient household LEDs currently available.

Warm, cozy light

Cree's bulb glows with a yellow-toned color temperature of 2700K, putting it on the same end of the spectrum as the common incandescent.

Unusual texture

Cree's bulbs are made from a glass that's coated with a hazy, rubbery substance that helps diffuse the light evenly.
