Bright­ness is no longer an issue either — the LED equiv­a­lents of 100W incan­des­cent bulbs have been on the mar­ket for a long time. Col­or ren­di­tion is anoth­er prob­lem that can be com­plete­ly solved as ear­ly as 2017. Two years ago, the aver­age col­or ren­der­ing index (CRI) was above 80.

Today, even some cheap lamps reach 90, and by autumn these val­ues ​​​​will become even high­er. Thus, soon only the most trained eye will be able to dis­tin­guish the light of an LED lamp from a ref­er­ence light source.

Top 10 LED lamps with E27 baseWith the advent of autumn, day­light hours have sub­sided, and many peo­ple already turn on the lights in the house even in the late morn­ing and in the after­noon start­ing at 4 pm, espe­cial­ly in cloudy weath­er. And this entails addi­tion­al costs for elec­tric­i­ty. Save on this bud­get item will allow LED lamps, which are already not expen­sive at all (espe­cial­ly from Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­ers) and last longer com­pared to eco­nom­i­cal gas lamps.

CHIP has rig­or­ous­ly test­ed hun­dreds of these devices in its lab and invites you to take a look at the lead­ers in our LED Lamp Rat­ing.
