I have 65W CFL's in the workspace. a 8w doesnt cut it at all, I would need many of them inside each ricepaper shade, and when I tried 4 of them in a 4 way E27 adapter, it was expensive and still ugly.
Linear fluros - tried a 2 foot replacement and it was useless and dim compared to the T8 tube, and it flickered too, so was unacceptable. I have mainly 4 and 5 foot ones in the garage and shed etc, with a few 3 foots around the place.
Table lamps. Need something with a better beam spread so some light comes down too.
Has anyone come across anything reasonable to work in those situations?
Also has anyone had an extreme failure rate on the GU10 viribright lamps? friend has had about 60% end up flickering or just going out, in standard eyeball lamps with no insulation anywhere near them.
