9 Lights

Actually the correct term is lamp. Some people call them bulbs, but that actually only refers to the glass globe that protects the filament from the rapid oxidation of the air. Of course, LEDs don’t oxidize and so are often packaged very differently.

I ordered and tested 9 different lamps to light the coin return button in the coin door.


Frankly, the one I like best is the 12VDC Orange Glass Incandescent. The LEDs are not as bright and don’t really create as much color as the “standard” lamp. I can see how the reduction of heat output and the longer life would be tempting, but I am going for look and feel here and I like the way the old school lamps look and feel.

Anybody need 2 each of 6 different LED lamps?
