GE’s 27-watt LED replacement for 100-watt incandescent bulbs set to light up our lives next year
As if you didn’t already have enough reason to be pumped for this week’s Lightfair trade show in Vegas — GE is talking up its new 27-watt Energy Smart LED bulb that can product enough power (1,600-plus lumens) to replace a standard 100-watt incandescent bulb. The bulb, which joins 13-watt and 9-watt LED bulbs (replacements for 60- and 40-watt incandescents, respectively) offers up 25,000 hours of life, which should give you roughly 22.8 years, assuming you use it about three hours a day. It’ll be hitting the U.S. and Canada in the first half of next year for an undetermined price. Check the illuminating press release after the break.
