This little light bulbs serves perfectly as a security light when I'm away from the home. 1 watt to light a small lamp by the window works great to make the place seem occupied. It also allows me to walk inside and navigate to a brighter light without tripping. Also, since it's so small, it fits in any fixture, though it is definitely NOT omnidirectional.
Not the brightest LED bulb, but at 1 watt, this tiny bulb is useful.
