Philips LED 100W EQ A21

Best for Larger Rooms

The 100W-equivalent class of LED – suitable for basements and large spaces – has arrived. The brighter bulbs can be behemoths, with bigger frames to make room for bulky heat sinks that prevent high temperatures from shortening their life span. And worst of all, they have drastically higher price tags. But while the A21 is still a towering mushroom, it also has a warm, incandescent-like glow, and best of all, it costs just $25.
