Questions & Answers

Is this bulb ok to use in enclosed fixture.

Asked by: LOO
I can't believe the number of folks who answer "yes" to this question. While it is true that you may be able to physically fit this bulb into an enclosure, and an enclosure designed for a 100W incandescent bulb will not be harmed (as some pointed out, an LED is cooler than incandescent of the same output), it's the LED BULB that can't handle the enclosure! LED bulbs are advertised as lasting 10,000 hours plus....that's true if it's installed per the package instructions. The fastest way to kill an LED bulb prematurely is to deny it adequate cooling. Bottom line: If the packaging says not to put it in an enclosure, don't do it.

What is the normal operating temperature of these 100 bulbs. Should it be hot to the touch. Is it dangerous if it's hot?

Asked by: Gazelle
The reason I bought these bulbs is because they have a substantial finned heat sink around the neck that should dissipate enough heat to keep them cooler than the average bulb of equivalent power.

Can a Dimmable LED bulb be used in a 3-way lamp or does that require a different type of bulb

Asked by: JDnHuntsvilleAL
That requires a true three way bulb and not a dimmable bulb

How does the 10-year limited manufacturer warranty work?

1 out of 15 failed. Living Room, < 3 hr/ day. Not in an enclosed fixture. I expected the bulb to last at least 10 years. My bulb was purchased in 2015, went bad in 2016.
Asked by: JohnWelch
I had the same problem. Go to: http://creebulb.com/warranty .... "Limited Warranty: If this bulb does not operate for 10 years (based on 6 hours per day / 7 days per week of normal consumer use) from date of purchase when used as directed, return the bulb with proof of purchase, register receipt and your name and address to Cree, Inc.

Customer Reviews

100W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) A21 Dimmable LED Light Bulb is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 387.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 50% FAILURE RATE, SLIGHTLY ODD LIGHT QUALITY I thought I had found the near-perfect 100-watt LED bulb: relatively inexpensive, small enough and light enough (in weight) to use in fixtures that other 100-watt LEDs were too bulky or heavy for. I bought 3 daylight & 3 soft-white bulbs. One went dead within 5 minutes. Another lasted a sum total of probably 4 hours. A 3rd lasted a sum total of probably 1000 hours (Still 1/25 of its rated life.) Each was in a different fixture on a different circuit, & none were enclosed or used with a dimmer. Cree grudgingly agreed to replace the bulbs, but I have to ship them the dead ones, and they implied it must somehow be my fault! 3 of the 6 bulbs also have a slight, but noticeable intermittent flicker. The light quality of the daylight bulb seems "off"; the soft-white is good but not perfect. Still, if these were reliable, they would be a great value & the first practical 100-watt LED bulb. I sure hope the reliability improves - I would buy a boatload.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these bulbs I was waiting for the day 100-w equivalent Cree bulbs came out & went to Home Depot and made them unload the new shipment! Bought three for a kitchen light with dimmer -- love them, they work perfectly -- and then went back and bought two more for a bedroom overhead fixture. Better than compact fluorescent in five ways: (1) the color is better; (2) there is no lag to warm up when you turn them on (3) they use less electricity; (4) they generate less heat and (5) they're brighter. Twenty bucks seems steep but electricity in California is very expensive (higher than the comparison rate on the Cree box -- check your bill) and since I put in a bunch of 60w equivalent Cree bulbs last year my bill has come down substantially. The Deptartment of Water and Power shows comparisons between this year's use and last year's use and I think in 1 to 2 years I'll be ahead. Only downsides are (1) they're a little too big for some lamps and (2) you cannot use them in "enclosed" fixtures.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Dim After Six (6) Months Purchased these bulbs to install into a new light fixture in our kitchen. Bulbs were bright at first and really brightened up the room. Now only after six months of use, they are so dim that you would think they were simulating candle light. I tend to read reviews with a grain of salt, but notice patterns for the reviewers. These bulbs were an impulse purchase, needed bulbs, high dollar LED's with a 10 year warranty, they had to be good "Right"? Boy did I make a $40 dollar mistake, (Purchased 2). Bulb manufactures depend on repeat business. I hope enough people read and review these bulbs to either force a change for the manufacture or put them out of business so that the manufactures who are concerned about the environment and their customers are left in business. The HD should stop selling these bulbs. I will not pursue the warranty after reading the reviews. Good luck on your purchase and I hope this review helps in your decisions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Light good, didn't last very long I bought 2 of these 100w equivalent LED bulbs 5 months ago. After 3 months, one of the bulbs quit working. My local Home Depot store replaced the burned-out bulb without hesitation (even without the packaging material) and I was satisfied thinking that it was just a bad one. Well, my 2nd bulb just "burned-out" yesterday (after 5 months of limited operation). I took this one back to my local Home Depot and was offered a replacement - no hassle - but I declined and got my money back instead. I purchased a Philips 100w equivalent hoping it lasts a lot longer. I have several lesser-wattage Cree bulbs throughout my house with no problems, but I think the 100w bulbs have a problem - maybe just the 1st generation - which these were, because I bought them as soon as my local store started carrying them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Warrenty Replacement? Ordered 10 100w from Home Depot May 8, 2014 (W273884725) . Two failed in June. Still waiting for replacements from Cree. Shipping dates have changed three times, 8/8, 9/2, and now 9/26/2014. Copied Home Depot Customer Service and received an unacceptable response. Another failed today September 21, 2014.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice light but does not last as specified I have several CREE lights. I have 2 of the 100 watt bulbs and one failed after 5 months. The warranty from CREE is a bit restrictive. It is a 10 year warranty but you need the receipt (to prove that you have had it less than 10 years) and the proof of purchase from the package. Since this particular bulb was introduced less than 2 years ago neither of these seem to be relevant to honor a warranty. I will not be buying anymore of these 100 watt bulbs until I see some improvement in the reviews. Even though I have had no problems with the other wattage bulbs from CREE I will probably not buy any more of them for a while. Also, while these seem to be dimmable, they do not perform well with a dimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - Can't believe the light output and brightness of this bulb. Just received this bulb - bought it for a living room floor lamp to replace a 100 watt incandescent bulb. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about how this bulb would measure up in terms of light color and brightness given my negative experience with compact fluorescents. I really like this bulb. Its brighter than the incandescent and I like the color better. Next stop, Home Depot, to replace all the lousy compact fluorescents in my house. Thank you CREE

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 of 3 dead after less than 50 hours of use. We installed 3 Cree 18W 2700K 1600 Lumen bulbs in a light fixture in our new home in June. They were purposefully selected due to the fixture being 2 stories above a staircase, hoping they would last a long time. 2 of the 3 bulbs have now burnt out in less than 50 hours of use. I thought after the first bulb burnt out in 2 weeks it was a fluke or even a loose bulb, but when the second burnt out 2 weeks ago I got out the ladder and removed the dead bulbs. Both were installed by our electrician and are appropriate for the fixture. This is disappointing. I won't be buying any more Cree bulbs in the future due to this example of poor reliability. Thank you, Chris
