Verilux enters LED bulb market
Verilux has introduced a new collection of LED bulbs designed to look like the “traditional Edison bulb.” The line of 26 bulbs is designed without the large heat sink found on most other LED bulbs on the market today, according to the Waitsfield, Vt., manufacturer.
“Verilux engineers have been working with LED technology for several years to design an affordable, long-lasting LED bulb that looks like a traditional Edison bulb,” said Verilux CEO Ryan Douglas. “Our Classic LED bulbs are an energy-efficient solution, perfect for use in candelabras, chandeliers, sconces and desk and floor lamps because they do not compromise the appearance of the fixture.”
The Verilux’s Classic LED bulbs feature an all-glass design that provides 360-degree illumination, just like a traditional incandescent bulb. They do not have a plastic casing on the lower third of the bulb that compromises the traditional look and blocks downward light.
The new bulbs carry an estimated 13-year lifespan. Verilux’s Classic LED bulbs provide full, instant-on illumination and work with most common dimmers. Prices range from $14.95 to $29.95.
