A couple of years ago I bought some E5 base led bulbs off Ebay looking to use them as replacements for 18V LGB incandescent bulbs. Unfortunately, they did not work well in the typical LGB sockets . It was very difficult to screw them in tight enough. The bulbs bottomed out in the socket before the center electrode made a good contact. Earlier this month after searching bulb suppliers on the internet I found and bought some from www.ledlight.com that work much better. The bulb style number is 24577. They're available rated for 6, 12, and 24 Volts DC and 3000ºK (warm white) or 6000ºK (daylight) color temperature. I ordered the 24V warm white variety. Price is about $1.50 each. The photo shows the old LED bulb on the left and the "better" LED bulb on the right. The difference in the center electrode is clearly seen.
