Do you love the retro look of incandescent light bulbs and harbor guilty thoughts of stockpiling them in preparation for their phase out ? Well, here’s your happy compromise! The energy-efficient vosLED light bulb looks like Edison’s original design but uses the latest LED technology to keep up with sustainable lighting developments. German lighting manufacturer Vosla looked to the original 1879 carbon-filament bulb for inspiration, creating a retro-style bulb that consumes much less energy than its classic predecessor.

Philips Unveils SlimStyle, a $10 Pancake-Shaped Light Bulb

Comments Off on Philips Unveils SlimStyle, a $10 Pancake-Shaped Light Bulb

Philips has released SlimStyle – a revolutionary flattened A19 LED light bulb that Edison would be proud of. With the 2014 federal ban on 40- and 60-watt incandescent bulbs now in effect, the company hopes that the SlimStyle’s streamlined shape and reduced price will convince more consumers to buy LED lighting for their homes. The new, more aesthetically-pleasing bulb offers more affordability than the current  LED and CFL bulbs on the market. Although the majority of consumers are quite familiar with the many benefits of LED lighting , the LED market for personal use has been slow to pick up steam. While it is widely accepted that LED bulbs reduce energy usage and costs and last much longer than incandescent bulbs, consumers have complained about the quality of light and high price of LED lighting. The typical LED blue-tinted illumination has not won over many consumers accustomed to the warm ambience of incandecents. And despite a guaranteed longer lifespan, the high price of LED bulbs has also been a deterrent to widespread use. However, with SlimStyle’s innovative flat design, Philips has managed to slash the price of the new 60 watt bulb by using the flat pancake shape, therefore eliminating the need for a metal heat sink, a component that was largely responsible for the high price tag of LED bulbs. Additionally, according to Philips, the new bulb can completely replace a 60W incandescent with similar beautiful light. And it sells at Home Depot for just $9.97. + Philips Via Fast CoDesign

If you read our en light ening “how to switch to LED bulbs” tutorial , you’ve hopefully already seen how much money and energy you can save by replacing your incandescent bulbs, but we wanted to make it even clearer how easy and effective a home light bulb makeover can be. We headed over to Brooklyn to give a light bulb overhaul to the managing editor of Inhabitots , our very own Julie Seguss ! Julie is going to be a new mom in just a few months, so saving money is of the utmost importance right now, but she still wanted to keep her Park Slope home illuminated with a warm, bright glow. In just a few hours, the Inhabitat lighting makeover crew (aka Inhabitat editors Jill & Yuka ) were able to swap out all of Julie’s electricity-guzzling incandescents and halogens with energy-efficient Philips LEDs , and we think you’ll be impressed with the monthly savings we tallied up for Julie at the end of the day. Check out our video above to see the whole makeover, and find out how much extra cash Julie and her husband will have after the makeover to spend on diapers and baby clothes!
