Am puzzling about where I bought some "Electreck" LED light bulbs.

They're regular 22mm bayonet fit and the usual old shape. But the glass
bulb is miniature size. 3W power.

Google and Bing keeps getting "Electreck" mixed up with "electric".

Last time I bought LED bulbs on the cheap they produced a lot of radio
frequency interference. I always buy Philips now.

Philips don't make light bulbs anymore - brand badge engineering.

True. I did know that and I was referring to the brand. I would hope
the licensing agreement would contain conditions that product quality
should not be detrimental to the Philips name.

I saw an interesting video on YouTube about the collapse of Philips,
which was once a massive electrical/electronics company which (I
think) is now left with only personal and medical equipment. I think
they make the shavers?
