The lamp that we are going to review now is RAB Lightning FFLED39 Future Flood 39-watt Cool Led 120-volt to 277-volt, which is thought to be a very revolutionary product that will change the market. This is a 39 watt 5100K Cool color temp lamp with up to 100,000 hours of life based on the LM-80 tests. This is not the first lamp that I have tested, but may turn out to be the best one so far. It was built with three multi chip 13 watt high performance LEDs and can bring light to any darkness. The product is one of the NEMA types – 7H x 6V with Air-flow technology heatsink. It has a very good looking design, and is very easy to use and maintain. The lamp also has a semi-specular anodized aluminum reflector and High-temperature silicone gaskets. It is made for any household whatsoever, and it has a Bronze Chip and fade resistant polyester powder coat finish.
Through my tests I have found out that this lamp is able to provide a fairly even light that backfills fixtures very nicely and it also has a nice looking consistent light color. As far as the price goes, this product can be found for as low as $229.99 at Amazon.
The lamp is manufactured by one of the leading American companies for lamp production. Its life is claimed to be around 100,000 hours, which is very reasonable. Except for brand new, it can also be easily bought second hand.
The specs of the lamp are as follows
Life Expectancy: 100,000 hours
Product Dimensions: 11 x 7.5 x 10 inches
Voltage: 120 volts
Wattage: 39 watts
Type of bulb: LED
The tests that were conducted were independent of any representatives of the manufacturer and managed using digital timers, set distances, laser distance meters, two separate foot candle meters, and a laser thermal gauge. All of the tests were conducted from the same single test platform to ensure consistency of the results. All of the measurements were taken by equipment mounted on a tripod, and where it was applicable, timers were utilized. All of the used equipment was calibrated prior to the testing and all the distances were confirmed. In general, I found that the tests confirmed the claims of the product.
The product has some pros and cons that should be taken into account before purchasing it.
- Solid construction
- Reasonable price
- Assembled in China
- Long lamp life compared to other similar products
- This bulb is glass and under pressure. There is a chance that if it is dropped from a height little above average it may break.
- The heat sink may become very hot, and the tests showed that there are a bunch of lamps that did not heat up so much.
All in all, the RAB Lightning FFLED39 Future Flood lamp is a great product. Both the light output and the color are very consistent. The overall feel of the lamp is quite nice; its heft lends a sense of quality. The lamp is with a rectangular shaped LED floodlight and is designed to replace the 150W Metal Halide. In my opinion it can easily do so, because of its high quality and productivity. The lamp can be used for a wide variety of things including building facade lightning, sign lightning, LED landscape lightning and instant-on security lightning. Because of its high productivity, the product offers a great variation of choices for how to be used. This is what really makes it stand out from other similar models on the market.
The price that it is being sold is, in my opinion, very reasonable considering the quality of the end product and its life expectancy, which is very high above the average. The lamp comes in bronze color, and it has a great design making it very appealing to the eyes. The item can be purchased online, from the Amazon website for $229.99 and it is shipped for free. If you choose a One-Day Shipping at checkout, the product will be at your doorsteps at the same time tomorrow.
