Philips 20-Year LED Lightbulb Goes On Sale



/>

/>A super-energy-saving LED bulb from Dutch electronics giant Philips, which can last over 20 years has gone on sale on Sunday, in line with Earth day.

/>

/>Its initial price tag of US$ 60 has now been reduced to US$ 50.

/>

/>The 10-watt LED bulb, which won the US Department of Energy’s “Bright Tomorrow Lighting Prize”, is deemed as an efficient alternative to the standard 60-watt incandescent bulb and can last for 30, 000 hours—more than 2 years.

/>

/>But its steep price has been met with criticism. According to Treehugger, incandescent lightbulbs and Compact-Fluorescent bulbs already in the market retail for around $ 5 and can last for 10, 000 hours.

/>

/>But Philips said energy savings of $ 165 over its lifetime could easily offset the price.

/>Would you get it?
