Thanks for the info. I hope you'll comment more on setting up illumination in a shop.
I chose to go with LED bulbs
, including three that have reflectors attached. Two in my small shed/shop, one in the center of my garage, which also has four other LED bulbs, for a total of about 7K lumens. Very bright , I also have under counter strip lights over the dark areas of the shop and a few more in the sockets I installed early on. What a difference it makes to have plenty of light. I have a few 3K kelvin mixed here and there, and I like the mix.
My shed/shop is in our back yard, which is huge and full of trees. Really dark most nights, so I have installed five motion detection, solar lights that illuminate the path when I go out there. They sometimes go on in the middle of the night, when the critters come to visit. LEDs have changed the illumination game.
About 2 decades ago, I visited a business that made flashlights, an engineer there had become fascinated by light emitting diodes and was experimenting with getting a white light version. He predicted that one day, we'd all be using them. He was right. I recall that the early versions would often separate from the base and stop working. Haven't had that problem in recent years.
The low draw is really nice, so much light, so little juice.
