New ´flat´ light bulb that lasts 22 YEARS
is as bright as a traditional 60W
one (and will save you £80)

Daily Mail [UK], by Sarah Griffiths

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/3/2014 2:45:45 PM

The days of fumbling in the dark to replace a light bulb could soon be a thing of the past--or at least a very rare occurrence--thanks to a new innovation. A new style of light bulb that is flatter, more energy efficient and lasts over 22 years is set to go on sale. Philips’ SlimStyle light bulb promises a comparable brightness to a 60W incandescent bulb instantly--with no annoying wait for the bulb to ‘warm up’. The Dutch electronics manufacturer said the improvement to energy efficient light bulbs, which are often criticised for being more expensive and duller than classic

Comments:
Before you ask: less than $10. And the price will drop quickly. Would be nice if it´s made in the US. Even if it´s Chinese made, though, one of its most important features is it´s not made by GE.

I´ll believe it when I see it. The new mercury based light bulbs have been less reliable than the regular bulbs for me.

FTA: The company claims the bulb saves up to $136.13 in energy costs over its lifetime when compared with a 60 watt incandescent bulb.

The problem with these claims and ´studies´ is that they are based on the average home having every light on for SIX HOURS a day.
There isn´t a single bulb in my house where lights stay on that long. (One exception would be the front porch light during winter, but it´s less than 6 hours when averaged over the year).

So light bulb manufacturers will have a windfall year and sit on their hands for the next two decades?

How can they say they will last 22 years until 22 years have passed and they´re still working?

Who asked these idiots to make my decisions in buying a light bulb? This is nothing more than liberal tripe. In the land of the great frozen North, they use incandescent light bulbs in their well houses to keep the pumps from freezing up. Slowly we turn, inch by inch, step by step, and soon we´ll be in a full communistic society.

Is it time to get ´all wee-wee´d up´ yet? What are YOU gonna do about it?

Only 60W? Will take 2 to make up the brightness for one old 100W bulb so half the savings right there. The 22 years is based on using it for 2.7 hrs every day. IHO LEDs are millions times better than the mercury bulbs being forced on us now but so far the LED bulbs all cost many times more than $10.

i just bought the last 7 packs of four 75watt light bulbs in my local grocery store. i have a supply of 100 watt bulbs, too. i hope that i´ll never have to buy any of the bulbs i´m now "required" to get. i hate the harsh light they give off (and that goes for the LED ones, too!)

Gosh! That looks like an awesome light bulb! (The screw-in bases are pretty "20th century," but they gotta fit where they gotta fit.)

I might even CHOOSE to buy one of these, over the old-fashioned incandescent counterpart. If I could choose. But the Lightbulb Police have stepped in. God bless the people who make sure we´re properly guided! (/sarcasm)

My husband laughed when I starting stocking up on bulbs a few years ago but now, I have 3 shelves full in my pantry and will be good for years. There are only 3 squiggly bulbs in my home and those are in my ceiling fan and were there when we bought the house 3 years ago. I defy you to read by one of these new bulbs.

Costco is selling LED "bulbs" for $8, quite bright (they say 60W equivalent but they are brighter than that) and a pleasing color too. Instant on, should last a looooooong time and save quite a bit of power. They also run fairly cool. I like them.

#6, time and again, I see another big or small outrage (light bulb tyranny among them) and think: "do I have fix everything?" We truly don´t want me in charge of stopping the public servant criminality pandemic. Is there someone who retains a shred of compassion for those who continually lie, flout the Constitution, disrespect the dignity and freedoms of their fellow countrymen, and flagrantly commit fraud, waste and abuse? If I were president, very little would remain of the bloated fed gov as we see it today. I would put absolutely everything possible except for the military, NASA, FAA, and Coast Guard back into the hands of states. All social programs, if retained, should be controlled and funded by states. Let governors and state legislatures work it out independently or in groups. I would return all lands in fed gov hands to the respective states except for military bases. Mineral right funds could be used to transition social security, medicare, and medicaid to state control. The state governors would work together to use these funds to also pay off the federal debt since federal officials and employees are so delusional they will never do it. All the alphabet agencies would go the way of the dodo and the generations of federal employee families would need to start family businesses unfunded by taxpayer dollars. If they don´t produce something of value, baby won´t have shoes. I would take the yoke off taxpaying citizens and protect the border from the dangerous invasion by illegal aliens. I would outlaw sharia law and communism in the USA since both are wholly incompatible with our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and let military courts prosecute subversionists and terrorists. Freedom carries responsibilities and can be scary. Are YOU ready for a life like our founding fathers envisioned for us?

For Christmas I got some LED bulbs 60 W that
use 10 w and the light is the same as the
the old bulbs. A friend has them over the
Kitchen sink and they say they are equal
TO 60w but they are much brighter than
any 60W I have ever seen. They look more
like 100W. From what I am reading it looks
like bugs do not see the light so I will
see how that works out next spring.
A law banning the old type was not needed
people are going to switch to LED now that
they are a 100% replacement for the old
kind. As far as how long they last it
looks like it is a guess. They say 22
years at 3 hours a day.
The ones I have are made by CREE sold by
Best Buy. I plan to change every light with
them. From what I see led bulbs are not
all the same as many were a rush to market
and in no way are good replacements for the
old kind.

#8, I bought some LED light bulbs at Home Depot for about $10 -- the brand name is Cree, and they look very similar to a regular incandescent bulb. I put them in a porch light and a lamp that we leave on most of the time. The light is a nice warm light, and the bulbs don´t get hot. An additional bonus is the wattage they draw is low--so I was able to put much brighter bulbs in an old fixture that will only allow up to 60 watt bulbs. Same lumens, lower wattage.

#14, I have read that the LED´s don´t attract insects, either. That´s a bonus for a porch light.

#15, same here with a flashlight.

60 watts isn´t enough to read by. It IS enough to strain your eyes to the point that you need a doc, which you can´t get because of Ocare.

Yeah isn´t great that all those bulbs are so long life based on 2 to 3 hours a day usage. so rise in the morning after the sun is high and go to bed at dusk and all will be great--until you are fired from the job for not keeping the employer´s time schedule.
Actually it´s now predicted those neat twisty bulbs will soon be eliminated due to competition that actually produces warm light.
Don´t count on more than two months use though.
One positive loop hole for now --3 way bulbs remain.

When we moved to Charleston I removed all our LED bulbs (very expensive at the time) and replaced them with cheap incandescents. The majority of those LEDs we brought with us 10 years ago are still going strong, including three of four floodlights in the motion-sensitive outdoor lights.

At one time I considered making a note in our wills that LEDs were to be removed before the house was sold because they were worth a bunch!

As for burning LEDs for a long time, I need constant lamp light here and there so I don´t fall over a furry bump in the dark hall. In the summer I need lights on because the insulated drapes are closed against the southern sun.

I don´t know the exact amount but I can tell that LEDs have saved us a significant amount on the electric bill. I also like the fact that they´re cool to the touch and not likely to cause a fire.

On the backyard I now have those outdoor LED twig lights, meant for Christmas but also useful as a pretty line of illumination on the back yard path.

Like other Ldotters, I prefer Cree--but am looking forward to trying the Phillips brand.

Ed Miliband wants to be ´the first Jewish

Ed Miliband says he wants to be Britain’s “first Jewish PM”. He apparently has no ambitions to be its most historically informed. As any fule kno, Benjamin Disrael--one of the greatest PMs there ever was--was Jewish. Yes, he converted to Christianity. But Ed Miliband doesn’t even believe in God and describes himself as a “Jewish atheist”--so we’re talking about ethnic identity here, not religion. And Disraeli was keenly aware of his ethnicity, calling himself "the blank page between the Old Testament and the New". He said that he regarded the Christian church as "the only Jewish institution that remains

The percentage of family doctors supporting the UK Independence Party has surged from 0.3 percent at the last general election to a new high of 7.3 percent, almost double the amount planning to vote Liberal Democrat. The figures, compiled by GP magazine, also show a sharp decline in Conservative support.

Laurene Powell Jobs has given $25,000 to the ´Ready for Hillary´ super PAC, a political campaign organization that has raised more than $4 million to lay the groundwork needed for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s expected White House run. Sharon Elghanayan Corzine, the wife of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, also put $25,000 on the table.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack.

It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013.
