When you say you found no LED Bulbs, you mean not consistent?

When you say you found some  LED bulbs that were clean, but you went with halogens.What do you mean?  Why did you go with  a LED which would have really saved us money.  Luckily  I bot 48 incandescents.

Did you mean that you tested 10 out of the same brand/model and 2 were dirty and 8  were clean;therefore you could not sell them?   What do you mean   by   that?
Halogens are a alternative eventually,  but do not compete cost wise with LED's.

I moved this question to the public open forum so others could benefit from it as well. I masked your name (you can unmask it in your profile if you wish).

From what I have seen - the light elements in ALL of the modern LED bulbs run on DC and therefore the bulbs must have electronics that switch the AC power provided by the house to DC to power the elements. This is a dirty operation. Some are better than others, though it depends on which meter or scope we use. I don't believe any of them are truly clean - they all produce some high frequencies - it is inherent to the way they use power in short little spikes.

We used to have some bulbs that appeared OK on the Stetzerizer Meter, but we had one customer that was getting high readings from the bulb in his home. I suspect it was interacting with other frequencies or with another device. Because of this one incident, I made the decision to discontinue selling the LED bulbs. I always err on the side of caution, even if it means taking a considerable loss as we did with the bulbs. I may liquidate those bulbs we have left, and simply warn would-be purchasers about the potential for dirty electricity or other energy pollution from them.

But as far as carrying a product and highlighting a real solution - that is why I went with the Clean Halogens. While the energy savings isn't as good as LED or CFL, it is a perfectly clean load on the system just like incandescent bulbs. How valuable is your health? I don't use any LED or CFL bulbs or dimmer switches in my home. It is all Clean Halogen and incandescent. I think it's important to keep the electrical system as clean as possible.

If you buy LEDs from the store, for example you buy 10 bulbs like you said all the same make/model, then they should behave the same if they are from the same lot. I have seen bulbs vary from one lot to another lot - after a slight design change in the electronics of the bulb. So I would highly recommend testing each bulb with the Stetzerizer Meter. But even the Stetzerizer Meter doesn't show everything.
