Longer-Lasting Light for Garage Door Openers
Standard lightbulbs can’t take much vibration, so they may not survive long in a garage door opener. The good news is, this LED was developed specifically for use in garage door openers. The bulb’s electronics are shielded to prevent receiver interference with the opener’s remote and the bulb is built to withstand vibration and low temperatures down to -22 degrees F. Plus, this bulb is rated for damp locations, unlike most LED’s. Genie claims the bulb has a 25,000-hour life span, which is equivalent to about 17 years of use!
