PROS / Feit's bulb distributes its light well and is Energy Star compliant.
CONS / This bulb requires more watts than its competitors, which makes it cost more to run per year than the best LED bulbs.
VERDICT / The Feit 13.5 Watt LED bulb lasts nearly 23 years and helps saves energy, but not quite as much as our top LED light bulbs that use less power to shine.
The Feit 13.5 Watt LED light bulb is comparable to 60-watt incandescent bulbs. By using less power to shine as brightly as a traditional light bulb, LED lights can save you money on your monthly power bill. While the Feit LED bulb is much more efficient than a CFL or incandescent light bulb, it uses 13.5 watts to power itself. This makes the bulb cost about $1.63 to run a year, up to 50 cents more than the most efficient LED lights on our lineup.
The Feit light bulb is a standard omnidirectional replacement bulb that shines its light into all corners of the room. It fits easily into standard-size light sockets, so you don't have to worry about getting an odd or wrong-size bulb when you buy a replacement. The Feit 13.5-watt LED bulb is designed to be used indoors only and is an excellent bulb to use with your table or floor lamps, ceiling light fixtures and sconce lights. While it works great in these fixtures, this light bulb should never go in a fully enclosed light fixture because the LED bulb may overheat over time.
This bulb lasts as long as the best LED light bulbs, up to 22.8 years or 25,000 hours. This is if you use it according to industry averages of three hours per day, each day of the year. This light bulb is UL listed and RoHS approved. This means it passes safety regulations and it doesn't contain any hazardous materials. CFL bulbs contain mercury, but LED energy-saving bulbs like this one don't.
This LED light bulb comes with a one-year limited warranty. This is much less than manufacturers of our top-ranked LED bulbs offer and can be inconvenient if your bulb fails after the first year. Fortunately, LED lights are much more affordable now than they have been in the past few years.
The Feit 13.5-watt LED bulb is a little small compared to incandescent bulbs, but it still has a standard base and the same general shape. The light this bulb supplies is cool white and is comparable to a 60-watt incandescent bulb. For 13.5 watts, this LED lamp will save you on energy costs over the life of the bulb.
