Cheap, Green, Efficient Definity LEDs


Avand in vedere ca  Targul pentru Iluminat 2010 va avea loc saptamana viitoare, exista o multime de inovatii in domeniul iluminatului in curs de pregatire acum. Luati, de exemplu, aceasta veste primita de la Lighting Science Group. Ei au dezvoltat iluminatul cu LED-uri - denumit in continuare linia de LED-uri Definity - despre care ei sustin ca este riguros testata si relativ accesibila. Luminile nu contin mercur si sunt reciclabile, reglabile, si de lunga durata.


The new LED line includes A19, PAR38, PAR30, PAR20, MR16, and G25 bulbs. They're expected to last 50,000 hours at 7 hours per day, 365 days a year.

Definity LED bulbs "offer the best lumens per dollar package and can save Americans hundreds of dollars in maintenance, replacement, and energy cost," according to Zach Gibler, CEO of Lighting Science Group.

A company press release compares the Definity LED A19 with GE's Energy Smart A19 LED and claims the Definity product is cheaper, longer lasting, and currently available, while the Energy Smart product is not available right now and will be built in China.

The A19 is a 40-watt equivalent that consumes 8 watts and carries a suggested retail price of $20. Lighting Science Group says Definity LEDs are "built" in the United States, although company information also states that lighting products are built in the United States using domestic and imported parts.


It's an interesting comparison to note. In the end, what we know is the fact that competition and innovation is putting downward pressure on pricing to the point that consumers may have no other choice but to invest in LED lighting.
