MaxLite's LED PAR and BR lamps are energy-efficient replacements for incandescent bulbs in architectural, commercial and high-end residential applications. Courtesy: MaxLite.MaxLite's LED PAR and BR lamps offer efficacies up to 82 lumens/W. Offered in 7, 12, and 15 W models, LED PAR lamps are designed to replace 50, 75, and 120 W incandescents, respectively. The PAR lamps are available in correlated color temperatures ranging from 2700 to 5000 K and two beam spreads: a 25-degree narrow flood and 40-degree wide flood. The 12 W PAR30 is available in short and long neck models for use within a wide variety of fixtures. A 17 W, wet-listed PAR38 model is also available for outdoor applications. The 7, 11, and 17 W LED models replace 50, 65, and 100 W incandescent lamps, respectively.

LED lighting technology is really nice. However, expected life is an issue. For the LED bulbs with built in driver, the heat dissipation is important. The driver circuit in the LED uses electrolytic capacitors. These are very sensitive to temperature. Operation of the capacitors at 10C above the rated temperature cuts the life in half. Unlike an incandescent lamp, LED is a complicated device. It will take time to mature. Right now I would worry about keeping the bulb cool. I have had some off brand LED bulbs go bad in three months when used in well ventilated environment. Other than that, it is a great technology.... When used outside, the bugs are not attracted to LED light!
