Hi TP- this would depend on the desk lamp specifications. This bulb could be used anywhere a standard LED bulb can, it does not have to be in a garage door opener only.
Yes, they can.
That is incorrect. It is a standard size light bulb.
Each light bulb is 800 lumens- equivalent to 60 Watts.
I would get this checked out by a licensed electrician, garage door service company. It could be that the relays in the opener are not fully turning off and "leaking voltage". While a standard incandescent you wouldn't notice it, the LED bulb requires a much lower operating voltage and its enough to turn on the bulb. It's a danger because there's voltage at the light socket when there shouldn't be any and it's also a waste of electricity.
These are full size bulbs and probably won’t fit a refrigerator. You want an appliance bulb that is smaller and has a smaller base. They are available as LED.
Your opener is susceptible to the RFI generated by the bulb. Genie has added extra filtering to prevent this but your opener is still being affected. You can try other LED bulbs but may still experience this issue. I would suggest trying a compact fluorescent rated for garage (extreme temps from a bulb's perspective) or switch back to standard incandescent. If allowed in your area you may be able to use a socket to plug adapter and mount a LED light farther away from the opener.
Very true. I replaced my standard led bulbs with these and gained about another 100 ft
I bought these Genie bulbs right after Home Depot started caring them in 2015. I bought these to replace older LEDs which had limited the activation distance for the remote opener. The Genie bulbs restored the activation distance to what it had been with incandescent bulbs. The color of the bulbs is 3000K - or cool white.
