Three LEDs that Never Fail

Posted by



Here at SOS Lightbulbs we carry light bulbs for any condition and job. Whether that is low voltage candelabra bulbs for antique houses, metal halide 400w 20k radium bulbs for aquarium enthusiasts, or a 4w LED bulbs for those looking for serious illumination, we have it. In this blog post, we want to give a shout out to the lights that get the hard gritty jobs done. If you are looking for light bulbs, we carry the best lights at the best prices. Browse our selections to learn more.When it comes to getting the job done in insane situations, there are very few bulbs that really hold up. We want to shout out to our 1895 LED bulb1076 LED bulb, and 755 bulb, that can stand up to the most rugged conditions while getting the job done. Built for use in power plants, steel mills, industrial freezers, or the pits of Hell itself, these LED bulbs redefine what lights can do. Each one impresses with honey-badger-like determination in the face of extreme conditions. These LEDs inhabit the temperature tolerance range of -40F to 257F (-40C to 125C). Good. Lord.

Not only are they both temperature ready for the apocalypse, they will probably keep lighting hallways until civilization returns. The 1895 LED bulb, 1076 LED bulb, and the 755 LED bulb have average lifespans of 100,000 plus hours. That is 11.41 years for those of you who aren’t math inclined. That means that if you bought two of our 5 unit 1895 bulb packs to light your room, you’d be over 100 years old before you’d need more lights, assuming you had them on the entire time. Maybe to keep out zombies or something.

Last but not least, these lights are shock and vibration proof. Perfect for use in heavy industrial settings, or when things are getting shaken up. We haven’t tried it yet, but you could probably put one in a paint mixer and it would paradoxically work better. If these light bulbs were people, they would be Bruce Lee, Dolph Lundgren, and Clint Eastwood. When it comes to performing where failure is not an option, these are the light bulbs you choose. They are made for American heavy industry and mining. These are the lights that keep going when others fail.

Here at SOS Lightbulbs, we provide you with the right lights for the right application, no matter what. Browse our selection of bulbs from SOS, Osram Sylvania, General Electric, and Ushio light bulbs today.


Uses of a 750 Watt Halogen Lamp

Here at SOS Lightbulbs, many of our lights have specific tasks. For instance, our metal halide 400w 20k radium bulbs are perfect for aquarium lovers. Others are relatively generic, like our 4w LED bulbs, or for show like our low voltage candelabra bulbs. A few are just pure AWESOME. This blog is dedicated to our 750w [...]
