If the price tag for Philips’ latest LED light bulb is anything to go by, a brighter tomorrow will not come cheap! The company announced its latest 75W replacement, which is known as the EnduraLED A21 and is in a position to reduce energy by 80% and lasts 25% longer than its conventional counterpart.
The EnduraLED A21 is the latest addition to Philips’ comprehensive portfolio of light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs that can efficiently replace traditional incandescents.
The new technology uses the company’s high-power, next-generation LUXEON LEDs and has been developed to meet or exceed ENERGY STAR qualifications for an LED-based replacement for the 75-watt incandescent light bulb. Those specifications call for delivering 1100 lumens with just 17-watt of electricity, a color temperature of 2700k, a color rendering index (CRI) of 80 and a rated life of 25,000 hours.
According to Philips the new bulb will be sent to ENERGY STAR in the coming months for qualification testing.
The light bulb is expected to go on sale at a price of $45 per bulb.
