Dear Forummers There are LED light bulbs at a low-enough price . These bulbs can illuminate as brightly as CFL bulbs and consumes even less energy and radiate light in all directions just like CFLs. These are said to last 15, 20 years or longer depending on daily usage. Now, my question is , Why Would Manufacturers kill their golden goose? Get my point? If Light bulb manufacturers selling CFLs also manufacture LED bulbs, would this not affect their main revenue generator, the CFLs product line? So, why would any money minded , profit oriented corporations want to replace CFLs with LEDs? They are selling CFLs and LEDs now. Why? If 1 light bulb can last you a lifetime, you are a 1-time customer. This is a sin in business 101.
