LED International is promoting what it describes as the world's first rechargeable light bulb.
Just introduced to U.S. vendors, MagicBulb was developed in Norway. With a lifespan of more than 20,000 hours, it saves up to 90% of energy compared with other bulbs, according to LED International. It can be used in any light fixture, and it's also portable. Once battery-charged, it can shine up to three hours.
The price point of MagicBulbs ranges anywhere from $25 to $60.
"MagicBulb is an award-winning, patented LED light bulb that has taken off overseas and is now making its grand entrance into the United States market," says Ron Yiu, marketing director for LED International U.S., a division of the Norway-based LED Electronics International AS that developed MagicBulb. "The response has been so overwhelming since we introduced the MagicBulb in Europe and Asia in late 2009."
The product has garnered a number of awards, including a Gold Medal from The 19th China National Invention Exhibition, September 2010; and IWIS Medal at the International Warsaw Invention Show 2009.
