LESLIE: Jean in Washington is on the line with a question about the best bulbs for room lighting. How can we help you today?
JEAN: Could I ask you about your Mr. Beam lights, where they’re available?
TOM: Sure. Jean, you can find those Mr. Beams products in lots of stores. They’re online at Amazon. They’re at Home Depot, they’re at Ace Hardware, Target, True Value, Walmart, Best Buy. They’re really widely available.
JEAN: I tried to find some around here. Of course, what they tell me is there’s more – this and that and the other thing. And I want to know about the one that you said you can put up in your ceiling. That’s where I need it. And do you know how many lumens they would have for the one that I could put in the ceiling, over my table, for good light?
TOM: The ceiling light delivers 100 lumens of light. It covers 260 square feet for effective lighting.
JEAN: OK, 100 lumens.
TOM: Yeah, it sounds like that would do a nice job of effective lighting over the table.
TOM: It’s battery-operated, of course. And if it comes on an average of 8 to 10 times a day, the battery lasts for a full year.
JEAN: Oh, well, that’s great. Because in the wintertime, you probably need it fairly often.
TOM: Well, that’s right. Absolutely. OK. Well, good luck with that project, OK?
JEAN: OK. Thank you very much.
