LED Light Bulbs

I just bought some this morning for only $2.25 per bulb. Life span is 13.7 years. They are 60W but look as bright as 100W. Estimated energy cost per year is $1.20. I bet they were made in China but I could care less as long as I get a reliable product. I think it was an Obama Mandate to get rid of incandescent household light bulbs. The box does not say if there are rare earth elements in them.
Thanks from Clara007

Glad to see they finally came out with cost-effective 120 VAC LED bulbs. I hope this is the demise of mercury laden compact fluorescent bulbs. The government has been trying to push the latter down our throats for quite some time.
My current and last homes are powered by 12 and 24 VDC, so I've been buying DC LED bulbs at a significant premium since 2011.

I was weaned on DC and became an adult in AC. I just love real science of any kind.
