Cree and LightRabbit.co.uk Pass the Test for Indoor and Outdoor LED Bulbs
The more bulbs you can convert to LEDs, the lower your power costs will be, and if you have a few outside lights that burn all night, you need to find a lighting solution that produces LED bulbs that can be used indoors and outdoors. We’ve tried and tested Cree’s replacement 60W LED bulb, along with LightRabbit.com 60SMD glass covered 50W replacement bulb and NxtGen Series III 4.6W GU10 to see how they square up against one another.
If you want an A-grade LED lighting UK replacement for traditional bulbs, Cree definitely have a premium product. They generate the same look and light as incandescent bulbs, but are cheaper to run. If you are a fan of traditional light bulbs, these will certainly impress as they have been created with glass.

As far as life span goes, you can expect around 25,000 hours at 800 lumens of light, using 9W of electricity.
