I was at Walmart and they have 100 watt replacement bulbs that use 72 watts and make 1490 lumens. They look like standard bulbs but they are halogen inside.

That's what Philips EcoVantage are. Of course other manufacturers use the same idea. I notice that the price has come down.

By putting the halogen capsule inside a regular A19 bulb, you get a bulb that looks and behaves like a conventional incandescent, but is efficient enough to meet the new regulations. Pays for itself in electricity saved - and then some.

Still pails compared to a CFL that will beat it in lumens using 26 watts.

I agree 100%! And the CFL pales compared to an LED that will do it using 5 watts.

The only reason I brought it up is that there are applications where a CFL or LED isn't a good choice. And there are folks who, for various reasons, can't/won't use CFLs or LEDs.

Actually LED has no big efficiency edge on a modern CFL today, maybe some day though.
