I love Filament LEDs

I'm sure most of you have seen the new light bulbs at the home supply or lighting stores that look like Incandescent bulbs, but are actually LEDs, they are called Filament LEDs and I love them......
So many new options when using them in a build, no more "Hot-Spots" when lighting your Nacelles, or for me, lighting the wall beams in my J-2.....

These are not, they are built on glass or sapphire substrates, flexible versions are coming sometime this year from Shenzhen Runlite Technology.

I had to go through Runlite Technology's U.S. Reps. and place a 1000 pcs. min. order. Couldn't find anyone else to buy them from....

In your video you indicate you are thinking about selling these, I am VERY interested in a set if you do decide to sell them. I have had several people ask me about lighting my Ceiling Beam Kit, since the beams are hollow to begin with, this would be perfect.

Very cool discovery! Shame they don't run on 3VDC, but I guess an inverter isn't too onerous...

These have 45 LEDs in series so that each one would produce uniform light, so 3 volts is out of the question, besides some EL inveters are very small and easy the work with.
