Ahead of Schedule, An LED Bulb for us All

geledbulbJust yesterday we brought you news of Cree's new module that will soon be working it's way into lighting fixtures. We asked when we'd see their technology taking the shape of high-brightness bulbs that could fit in for home use.

The answer was within the next year or two. But today GE announced that they'll have an LED bulb replacement using Cree's LEDs available by the end of 2010. Now, let's be clear, this joint project from Cree and cialis canadian GE isn't as bright or as technologically advanced as the module we discussed yesterday, but it is buying cialis without a prescription a huge step forward for LED technology and I can't wait to get my hands on visit web site buy real viagra online without prescription one (or a dozen).

These bulbs will fit into any traditional bulb socket and will produce about as much light as a 40 watt bulb. It consumes just 9 watts and lasts up to 17 years. It doesn't contain any hazardous substances but will cost up to $50. 

Of course, over the cheapest prices on levitra life of the bulb, it will be cheaper than incandescents, but when you just want a new lightbulb, it's hard to choose the $50 one over the $0.50 one.

40 watts isn't really enough for many of viagra 30 mg my applications. I would love to get some LED bulbs though.
but that's not much better than a cfl
written by chris brandow, April 08, 2010
a cfl consumes 10 watts to get 40 watt output and only costs a couple bucks. yes, it has some mercury and only lasts 5-7 years instead of 17, but i expected better performance from teh led
Sub Par on Lumens

OK, so there's a 40W LED bulb on the market, where's the 65W, 90W, 100W, 150W, etc... Also, are the lumens / watt greater or less than incandescents and compact fluorescents?
Proposed price is exploitative
written by Mike, April 09, 2010
The major problem with this product is the price. The suggested price probably doesn't bear any relationship to the cost of manufacture.

Hopefully an Asian company will make these at the right price so that people are not exploited/punished for wanting to be responsible power consumers.
For $50 I'd like a guarantee against breakage
written by Al Iannacone, April 09, 2010
Given the hurdle to adoption of LED bulbs that comes with a $50 cost, the manufacturers of these products could go a long way towards making the investment in a "lifetime lightbulb" easier to swallow if the product came with a guarantee against breakage. If I spend $50 on a small home appliance, power tool, or home electronics gismo, I don't expect to lose my investment if I happen to drop it. But we all know know how easy it is to viagra canadian pharmacies drop and generic levitra shipping canada break a lightbulb. I'd be willing to see the cost increase from $50 to $51 or $52 (a 2 to 4 percent surcharge) in order to have a lifetime guarantee that I can return the bulb for free replacement if it ever shatters. I assume the fancy fins on the bulb in this story are meant as a sheld against breakage, and they look cool, but what they really did for me was highlight the viagra pfizer canada idea that "this $50 product can break and then you're up the creek without a paddle." Replacing broken bulbs would also be an incentive to design and manufacture the most durable product possible. This might be a good approach to take with compact fluorescents as well, come to think of it, given their issues if they break...
Fancy fins
written by Dave B, April 09, 2010
Al: those fancy fins are more likely there as heat sinks than to protect the bulb from you dropping it.

Yes They are finally starting to cialis pills come on the shelves.

The current models are good for ambient light at home or a more powerful light in commercial areas.

Also, LEDs are very good, if you need a spot light and lead to more safety when used as additional light on vehicles.
Rock solid warranty required at that price
written by Doc Rings, April 11, 2010
I found the CFL's to also have a less than desirable lifespan. Yes, they are touted to have 5-7 lifespans, but my real world experience is that about 20% of them die within a year, and I've had others die after that, too.

With prices coming down on CFL's I'm not as concerned about the burning out, but I was when they were $10 a piece, with only a one year warranty.

If I'm spending $50 on an LED bulb, I want a rock solid "no questions asked" warranty of 5 years, minimum. Just mail back the bulb, or return to the store, and you get another one.

Why someone would choose a $50 LED over a $2 CFL of equal efficiency is beyond me. Eventually, though, LEDs will become cost effective.

We need to stop using watts as a rating of just try! ordering viagra overnight delivery light output. The term for light output is lumens. The most common incandescent bulb in use today is a 60 watt bulb that produces about 700 lumens. An equivalent to it is a 13 watt Compact Florescent Lamp (CFL)that produces about 700 lumens.

I can buy 13 watt CFL's for about $2.67/each which is six times as expensive as the equivalent incandescent but the propecia for hair loss CFL will last at least five years. Not sure if there is any savings in cost to me but it uses 75% less electricity. I think that LED lighting will have to levitra without prescriptioin sell in a comparable price range to be widely adopted.

I do have four LED nightlights that consume 1/4 watt/hour each and are almost too bright for night lights. I paid about $4/each for them and they include a photo sensor that automatically shuts them off in daylight.

Yes, CFL's are most likely as efficient as the new LED, but I think people are over looking one huge feature. CFL's contain mercury. The bulbs are not so good for the environment when it comes to the end of their life and its time to throw them out.

I look forward to when I can get my hands on some hazardous substances free LED bulbs for my home.

I have bought both CFL's and LED's and found that CFL's are great energy savers( lowered my electric bill by $12 a month).I still don't like them,they last just as long as incandescents and not much longer, maybe one out of three last the as long as the claims. The LEDs I bought at Wal-Mart, not the expensive ones but the cheap $9 and $12 LEDs.They last longer than the CFLs, but don't have the lumes, and the light does not bother me like CFLs. So I mix them up in each room and very good site viagra generic brand the combination seems comfortable. Buy what you like.
