GE and Phillips weren’t the only major players to roll out spanky new LED bulbs at Lightfair International this year – also in the mix was Lighting Science Group, which debuted its Definity LED bulbs, which it bills as both long lasting and low-cost (which certainly cannot be said for every LED bulb).
The Definity line of LED bulbs – which now include LED flood and spot lights as well as vanity lights and 60 and 40 watt equivalent omnidirectional bulbs – are approximately 75-80% more efficient than traditional incandescents. They are also dimmable, “instant on”, and (like all LEDs) are designed to last for decades.
Additionally, Lighting Science Group cites independent tests that attest to the lumen (light) output of these bulbs as outperforming many comparable LED bulbs products by 25-30%. Definity bulbs are also available in a number of different colors.
While James Haworth, chief executive officer of Lighting Science Group, stated that these bulbs offer “quality and energy savings at an affordable price,” there has been no word yet on their actual price.
