OT: LED Shop Lights

I'd started replacing my fluorescent shop lights with LED some time back and bought a few "Maxlight" 2400 Lumen units on sale for $20. They are awesome but normally $35-$40. I then got lamps in bulk $10/ tube for retrofit and they were also good.
Holiday season special at Ocean State Job Lots- Maxlite 2400's for $15!!
I bought another 5. You can't get lamps alone for that price. It's a bluish /white light but you get used to it. Way brighter than conventional.

I have switched the 4ft fluorescent shop lamps out to LED. They fit the same lamp housing's. So far I am happy with them.
Here in Kalyphornya it costs more to dispose of one fluorescent tube than it costs to buy that same tube!!! Makes one wonder how many tubes are actually correctly disposed of!eye rolling smiley

I have just completed converting all lights in our home, yard and other buildings to LED. My Garage has six 4 ft lights and are now LED with 1600 lumens per bulb. These are quite adequate for the square footage (14 x 32). And there is a fixture above the bench with the same bulbs. My maintenance bay and lean-to each have 3 LED fixtures (4500 lumens each) to light up the area.

I have 3 more fixtures to convert for my 40 ft container. They will get 2400 lumens bulbs.
