    A thought. The recommended option on lights is a fluorescent?

    While the price point might be good they are not THAT much cheaper than LED and (most importantly to me) they contain mercury. You need to dispose of these properly. In the U.S. this can be a pain in you know what. Given how little of recycling is ACTUALLY recycled, I say avoid these with the mercury.
