A low-power LED lamp manufactured by the giant Philips, with an estimated life of 20 years, was released last Sunday on the Internet and U.S. stores to coincide with Earth Day.
With a starting price of $60, the energy saving lamp, which won the prize in 2011 “Bright Tomorrow Lighting Prize” awarded by the U.S. Energy Department, was now available in stores at $ 50.
Philips announced that the company seeks to reduce the costs to obtain a final price between 25 and 30 dollars.
According to its manufacturer, the 10W energy saving lamp achieves brightning just as much as a traditional 60W, and affirmed that with a three-hour usage it could extend the life battery to 27.4 years. (ARL)
