Rated 5 out of 5Â by DKtucson I use them as darkroom safelights
I recently got back in to old school B&W darkroom printing. "Official" safelights that don't ruin photo paper can run from $29-$149 from lab supply shops. I tested the bulbs first behind amber filters (standard safelight housings)--no ruined paper. I then put the bare bulbs in a "light bar" (standard bathroom wall vanity setup) and turned them on with a piece of photo paper out. The photo paper exposed perfectly and was not ruined. I had 2 of the red bulbs in the "light bar" and could have read a newspaper while making prints ! Make sure you get red and not red-orange. Apparently the light spectrum is 650nm or greater

During the special days that we honor the Military, I switch bulbs to be red, white & blue to honor my late husband's service and also for all other military, past present & future. It's just a heart-warming gesture!

Have been using these bulbs for years ( in different colors ). But a recent batch has manufacturing issues. I wanted Chinese new year red but the most recent ones I purchased were giving me Home Depot orange. Had to take a few trips to the store to get bulbs that give out an actual red.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Grant Nice bulb, a rich red, but not TOO bright
This bulb gives a nice, even color. A real "rich" red. (as opposed to an incandescent which can be "spotty" and "faded") and although it says it's a 60w equivelant, to me it seems more like 40. (which I like) I'm really pleased with this bulb...it's a great "mood light".
