Answer: 
I've used both CFL and LED bulbs in fixtures such as this. The short answer is, you shouldn't have any problems. If the bulbs fit and the total electrical wattage drawn by the bulb does not exceed the fixture rating, I don't see any risk.

Answer: 
Yes, less wattage means less current and increased safety. Depending on your lighting needs though the 8.5 watts might not have enough light. I would recommend the 13 watt watt version SKU 401 900 instead. If you do buy the 8.5 watt and find it is too small you can always use it somewhere else. I use 8.5 W in a five light dining room fixture and small bathroom recessed overhead fixtures. I use the 13 W Read More

Answer: 
I was not able to find the Hampton Bay ceiling fan that you referenced by the number that you provided. If the light kit is a standard open fixture, it will be fine to use the Ecosmart 8.5 watt led lamps. If the light kit is enclosed, there will most likely be an issue with heat with the LED lamp. If you still are unsure, please consult with a representative at your local Home Depot. Thank your for your Read More

We have an outdoor light fixture that has a photo eye that turns the light on at dusk and off at dawn that is located above the garage door that is protected by the overhang of the roof line and I would like to know if this bulb would be suitable to use in an outdoor fixture?
The fixture currently is rated to use only 25 watt bulbs and we have tried using CFL once before and it would flicker off and on all night so we just went back to regular incadescent bulbs.

Answer: 
Compact Florescent lights use a ballast coil that requires a full wave AC voltage/current source. Both dimmers and photo switches use silicone controlled rectifiers SCRs to switch or dim which either clip (rectify to half wave) or parse (pulse width modulate) the line voltage. The actual LEDs use direct current and do not care about the kind of AC coming in. LED lamp assemblies however have a circuit Read More

Both dimmers and photo switches use silicone controlled rectifiers SCRs to switch or dim which either clip (rectify to half wave) or parse (pulse width modulate) the line voltage. The actual LEDs use direct current and do not care about the kind of AC coming in. LED lamp assemblies however have a circuit board and some work with photo switches or dimmers and some don't. If it works with a dimmer it will work with a photo switch and these bulbs are labeled as compatible with dimmers. I have not used dimmers but have two exterior fixtures that are photo switched hand have worked well with these lamp assemblies for over a year. Read Less

Thank you for your interest in EcoSmart LED lamps.
There are actually several things for you to consider when choosing a lamp for this fixture as it sounds as if it was specifically designed for a 25W incandescent lamp.
1) The wattage rating is based on the rating of the electrical components in the fixture. By following the wattage rating you also regulate the thermal (heat) considerations. Less watts, less heat. The wattage restriction will also have a bearing on the physical size of the lamp. The LED lamp may be larger and have a problem fitting in the fixture.
2) The fixture may be enclosed and gasketed to protect against the elements. If that is the case it is a problem to use the LED lamp because of heat issues. If there is no air flow over the lamp heat will build up and can cause performance or length of life issues. The LED lamp you are looking at is damp location rated only and cannot be used in a location where it would get rain or water spray on it. If your fixture is open and the lamp would be exposed it could be a problem being outside.
3) Fixture has a sensor, the CFL lamp you refered to probably had an issue with being controllled by a sensor and did not perform well. LED lamps can also have that issue depending on what type of sensor is being used. The only way to know for sure is to test it out to see if the LED lamp will operate properly with the sensor that you have.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LEDs are the future of lighting...worth buying I was going to replace my old CFL light bulb for my little hallway. I did my research online and read reviews. Knowing that LEDs were the best choice to replace them, I bought an 8 watt Ecosmart bulb. I was surprised how bright it was, plus I like it how its clear in color. (5000K daylight) Also its good quality you can feel. Nice how you can save money and at the same time helping the environment with using mercury free light bulbs. Even better with the 5 year warranty. It's worth what you pay for. For sure going to buy more and the EcoSmart 13-Watt bulb too. Hope my review helps potential buyers. April 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks Great If You Like White Output This bulb is great. Light Dispersion is wide and looks fantastic. The brightness of the bulb is a bit brighter than your typical 40w incandescent. Offers about 60 lumen's more than it's 4000k 8.5W LED brother and it is very noticeable. Color Temperature seems to be a pure white with not much if any blue in it. It's just a pure cold white. Comparable to a 5000k Compact Flourescent. Do not confuse this as with the 6500k Compact Fluorescents that many people use as those have a very noticeable bluish tint to them. I am installing two in my refrigerator to give it a more update look and to match its surroundings, which are all white to bluish LED's and Compact Fluorescents. Heavy Duty Heat Sink. If you're looking for a cold white color, look no further. This seems to be an excellent LED bulb. June 8, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bright White light Wanted to put LED in our home, due to the longevity and brightness of the bulb. They are cool and do not get hot, which was very important to us. They put out a nice amount of cool white light, not the yellow colored light. March 19, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good For Refrigerator/Freezer Lights I used this bulb to replace three Incandescent daylight light bulbs in a Refrigerator/Freezer. The Refrigerator compartment contained 2 40W bulbs, while the Freezer compartment contained 1 25W bulb. So instead of the lights consuming 105 Watts of power, the lights now consume 24 Watts of power. Both Refrigerator and Freezer compartments are brighter with the LED bulbs. LED bulbs are good for cold spaces, such as Refrigerator/Freezers, as they work well and start instantly at cold temperatures unlike CFLs, and LEDs have no Mercury in them to contaminate the area unlike CFLs. October 17, 2011
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by works great until it stops working... I liked the performance of it, but it lasted less then two years. January 30, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice light, but too much interference I bought this LED bulb to put into my garage door opener due to the color temperature, to match the full size florescent tube fixtures in my garage. Light is great, instant on is fantastic out in the garage, unfortunately it creates too much radio interference, so that the garage door opener remotes won't work within 40' of the opener, down the block isn't a problem, just when it gets too close. This bulb replaced a warm white Philips unit, which caused no interference, I guess sometimes it pays to buy the name brand. End result, great bulb, just not in garage door openers January 26, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A little too blue I bought these LED 5000K lamps hoping for white light. Before, I tried some 3000K "bright white" that I took back because they were too yellow. These 5000K are a bit too bluish. Poor color rendition too, "77". Compared to several 6500K "daylight" lamps I have they seem to match more closely than some GE Chroma 50 lamps that are 5000K which I use in several fluorescent fixtures. Probably what I am after is 4000-4100K but Home Depot skips that model. Light Science makes one, HD doesn't carry it. I would only recommend this if color rendition is not important. June 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice LED bulb! I have other LED bulbs and they are worth the money, Some brands do not last long despite what the box may say or poor lighting depending on where you put them or due to designs of the led. I have tried many different kinds of led bulbs and sizes. These ones produce very nice light and are very bright.They are a very unique shape but do not be fooled, ONE OF THE BEST I have used so far. The daylight produced is amazing clarity from other led bulbs I have used. I am using 8 watts for a 40 watt bulb. February 25, 2012
