GE Energy Smart LED A19 General Purpose Bulb - Omni-Directional Lighting
The bulb is the latest addition to GE Lighting’s portfolio of light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs. Consuming just 9 watts, the new LED bulb is expected to achieve a 77 percent energy savings while producing nearly the same light output as a 40-watt incandescent bulb. The new LED bulb provides a soft white light (3,000K) and 471 lumens, a light-output measurement that makes it an excellent 40-watt incandescent replacement. Based on three hours of usage per day, the bulb is rated to last over 22 years, or more than 25 times as long as a 40-watt incandescent bulb.
The new bulb has a unique fin-like design, allowing it to direct light downward on the intended surface and all around, not just out of the top of the lampshade. The fins surrounding the bulb help to keep it cool by drawing out heat, and this keeps the bulb’s surface cooler to the touch.
Given its cutting-edge specifications, the new GE Energy Smart LED A19 General Purpose Bulb - will be ideal for providing accent lighting for the interiors of hotels, restaurants and retail stores.
The new bulb is expected to launch to all Asia markets in June, except for Korea and Thailand, which will be 3-6 month lag against others due to the in country test requirement
