The hanging light I use these in is very difficult to get to and even harder to change the bulbs out. It is used probably more than any other light in my house. So I’m very thankful that these bulbs appear to last a very long time, put off excellent light and are extremely sturdy and strong. I’m using them in my entry way hall light and they provide a good source of light, even with the globe being a dark blue. The base seems attached well so I’m hopeful when it does come time to change them I won’t have an issue removing them. So far they have been installed nearly a year and probably get at least a couple of hours of use every day. No signs of giving up!
