Questions & Answers

will this bulb work in an under-counter halogen puck light as a replacement for a G8 base halogen bulb?

Asked by: Babs
Yes I got mine from another store and it worked great for about a year and stopped working. The warranty is three years, sent it to the manufacture for six dollars and they will send you a new five dollar bulb free

Do I need to replace the dimmer with an "LED dimmer"? If so, what is the difference with what<s now in place for the xenon bulbs?

Asked by: Henry
No, I kept the same dimmer that I had with the halogen bulbs. The LED bulbs dim fine with existing dimmer switch.

Do these need to hook into a 12V transformer? AC or DC?

The description says "designed for 120-Volt fixtures only", but most of these small lights need to hook into a 12V transformer. Also I don't understand whether they need AC or DC transformers. Its very confusing, can somebody provide more details? Do I wire these directly into 120V light switch ? Thanks!
Asked by: Rick
These are 120V LED bulbs and must be used in a 120V fixture. I have 120V under cabinet puck fixtures and these bulbs work perfectly.

25W Equivalent Soft White (3000K) G8 Dimmable LED Replacement Light Bulb is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Updated Model Huge Disappointment - Do Not Buy. I have ordered these G8 25W dimmable LEDs twice. The first batch (10) was to see if they really were dimmable and worked with my undercounter kitchen cabinet lights. Guess what: perfect. Other than the stems being a wee bit short we loved them. We decided to replace all the kitchen cabinet lights (they are not cheap!). The second batch came arrived and Meridian had updated the model with a different casing (it has an even wider circumference now!). Not only did I have a hard time fitting the new size in their housings, but now the lights FLICKERED the entire time. They dimmed, but flickered. My wife thought I was insane, "These have to go, I won't have them flickering all the time." I tried 6 of the batch of 20 and they all flickered. The original ones we bought continue to work great. We returned the whole batch and now have to live with the halogens until someone comes up with another dfimmabel G8. Very frustrating. Hard to believe Meridian would knowingly put out an updated product that was worse.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit all g8 fixtures I bought this as a replacement bulb for the light under my microwave hood that is on 10+ hours per day and burns through xenon bulbs every few months. I was very excited to install a LED bulb with a 20000 hour life expectancy but after struggling with trying to get it to seat properly in the base, I have up on the microwave application. The problem is that this bulb is shaped like a pancake with the leads being the same width as a normal G8 bulb, but the wider round shape of the LED bulb doesn't play well with a receptical made to hold a G8 bulb securely in place. I was able to use this in my under cabinet lights without any drama and I am fairly happy with it. The color is whiter and harsher than the xenon or halogen soft white lights when dimmed, but it's hard to tell the difference at full bright. In all, I would rate this as "just okay" and I will keep looking for a G8 LED bulb that is the same shape as the traditional bulbs for my microwave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit everywhere but works great My microwave uses G8 75w 120v halogen bulbs and they seem to burn out every 4 months. I bought two of these as replacements. The box said they were equivalent to a 25w, but I think the design (single-direction) makes them seem just as bright as the original 75w. Two minor issues: 1) They didn't fit exactly into the socket, so I made a 1/2 inch riser. Now they fit great. 2) They are dimmable, but they seem to flicker on the lower setting. Not a problem, I don't use the lower setting any more. These don't give off much heat and only consume 2.5w (1/30th of the original energy usage). I'm pretty happy about the whole thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended for puck under counter lights Purchased 10 lights 3 failed within 100 hours. Contacted manufacture but received no response to emails and they did not honor the 3 yr. 15000 hr warranty, when I returned the first bulb that failed they kept it. I found the only thing worse than the bulbs was the customer service. I am off to Lowe's to pick up a bulb to replace these now. Count this as a $100 lesson about trusting Home Depots recommendations on products. As long as they worked they were fine but I found the bulbs all exhibit a burnt brown color on the ceramic back and it appears they over heat in the environment they were designed to be used in, namely under counter puck lights. Once they over heat they begin to blink then go out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good not perfect These lights produce a very nice consistent light that may be better then the incandescent they replaced. These led's are mixed with the incandescent bulbs in my lights and they are a little whiter then the incandescent bulbs, but not blueish or harsh. Another immediate and noticeable benefit of the led is the greatly reduced heat output. The inside of my cabinets are cooler thanks to the led. I replaced 5 of the 14 under-counter bulbs and can hardly wait until more of the bulbs burn out so I can replace them. The only fault I found in these lights is they are NOT dimmable. When i switch them to low,they strobe, badly. Therefore, I give them 4 star.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plastic cover melts and burns. Beware no warranty. I like to keep my under-cabinet kitchen puck lights on all the time, but was constantly burning out G8 Xenon bulbs. These do fit the puck lights well. However, after about 4 months, the plastic cover on 1 (of four) of these melted and deformed to the point that it actually stuck to the LEDs and burnt. 2 others looked like they were on their way. Home Depot did nothing to rectify the situation because there is no warranty, so beware that point. I replaced these with a competing product from a competing retailer. There may also be better luck with heat dissipation (not melting) if there are no UV glass filters on the puck lights, but I'm not sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from G8 Dimmable LED Replacement Light Bulb We recently bought 5 of these LED bulbs to replace 5 halogen bulbs. The main reason was to reduce power use and greatly reduce the under counter heat in the kitchen. Power consumption was reduced from ( 5 x 35W ) 175W to ( 5 x 2.5W ) 12.5W with no reduction in light level. We also installed a dimming Lutron Diva light switch which allows dimming the lights to a level that is pleasing for use as low level atmosphere lighting when the kitchen is just in need of low level illumination. We are very pleased with the outcome of the project. They are a true plug n play, plug in replacement. Great products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great. Had to modify my straight lamps to accept bulbs The bulbs work as advertised. Since the are round they would not fit into my straight fixtures that used Xeon and other non-LED 25w G-8 size bulbs. I took the fixture apart and cut a small piece of the reflector out and they worked perfectly. Much cheaper than buying and installing new fixtures. I also had some round "puck" style fixtures. They work perfectly in them with no alterations. They dim just fine with the switch I already had installed. Be aware of the color. These are a nice white at 3000 degrees Kelvin. They do not give off the nice golden glow non-LED bulbs do when dimmed. They are the same exact shade of white when dimmed as when fully bright. Looks nice but does not work as you might expect
