20xLED 120VAC Light Bulb, retail $9.95 (www.quickar.com)

Last updated 08-31-05

This is an LED bulb that fits medium screw base receptacles; commonly used for household light bulbs in the United States. Yes, it operates directly from 110 to 130 volts AC, as used in north America.

It comes in a plastic body, with a metal medium screw base, and a transparent plastic "cap" over the LEDs with some texturising inside to help diffuse the light from the 20 white LEDs on a white plastic disc inside.

It is (suspected to be) Quickar Electronics part number c185w12.


To use this blub, just unscrew the original light bulb from the socket, and screw this one in. Yes, it really is as easy as that.

*** VERY IMPORTANT!!! *** This lamp must NOT be used in a fixture equipped with a dimmer switch, whether the dimmer is in the fixture itself or on the wall controlling that fixture. Doing so might let all of the magic smoke out of it and attract rats & flies - I mean start an unwanted fire.

This product was intended specifically to be used in a 110-130 volts AC receptacle, so I don't have to tell you how to change the batteries in it - there aren't any.

Since this bulb was meant to be screwed in a light receptacle and not abused, I won't whap it against a steel rod or the corner of a concrete stair, try to drown it in a toilet bowl, stomp on it, run over it, or inflict other punishments upon it that might be inflicted upon regular flashlights. So this section will be rather short.

Handle it as you would an ordinary household light bulb, and it shouldn't give you any guff.
