Great news for all us energy geeks! Now Philips has an LED bulb that puts out 1100 lumens – in technical terms, that’s a bucket load of light! For comparison, most of the other screw-in LED lights I’ve been commenting on put out the equivalent of a 40w-60w light bulb, maybe 600-800 lumens. For more info, see this press release on Engadget.
Note, the Engadget folks were WAY off in the lifetime. These bulbs last 25 times as long as a conventional bulb (as shown in the press release).
