    If your darkroom ceiling is white, bounce your safelight off the ceiling; it will give a soft, overall light that is quite pleasant. Also, you can use a little higher-wattage bulb (do do the safelight test though).

    I have also been using amber and red pocket LED flashlights (e.g., Photon) for finding things and reading stuff in the darkroom. I keep one in my apron pocket. They are great for reading that print manipulation list when you're not quite sure how much you decided to burn that edge this time.

    I love the screw-in LED idea. I'm going to try some myself.

    Best,

    A division of the company I work for makes LED rear light clusters for cars. They are super bright red and amber LEDs on a flexible polyimide printed circuit. I have some to experiment with. If they work, my new darkroom will have LED safelights.
