Philips SlimStyle LED Bulb Comes In At $9.97

A new design and accessible price on dimmable 60-W EQ bulb offers consumers slimmer utility bills without compromising light quality
                                                                                                                                             Philips has released a 60-watt LED equivalent bulb in its SlimStyle product.


It has a brand new shape that offers the high quality, omni-directional light of an incandescent, while eliminating the bulky heat sink commonly found on current LED offerings. The new value-priced 60-watt bulb is now available for purchase in store at The Home Depot, a partner in innovation, for $9.97.


Like other Philips LED bulbs, SlimStyle is also designed to meet or exceed ENERGY STAR specifications, reducing energy consumption by 85 percent, and lasting 25 times longer with an estimated $136 savings in electricity costs during its 25,000 hour lifespan, as compared to the traditional 60-watt incandescent. The bulb is dimmable and has already been submitted for ENERGY STAR testing.


Using mid-power LUXEON LEDs developed at the Philips Lumileds facility in San Jose, California, SlimStyle uses 10.5 watts of power, while putting out more than 800 lumens.


This latest generation Philips bulb has a flat surface to conduct heat away from the LEDs, eliminating the need for the heavy aluminium heat sinks currently associated with LED bulbs.  This innovation helps to reduce the cost and weight of the bulb, while still delivering the omni-directional lighting consumers expect from a traditional 60-watt bulb.


"Philips was the first and only company to create a light bulb that could meet the exacting L Prize specifications and we have continued to revolutionise the 60-watt LED equivalent with SlimStyle," says Bruno Biasiotta, CEO and president, Philips Lighting Americas.


"With this latest generation, we have demonstrated that the LED bulb can break with traditional design and that a value-priced offering can still deliver the innovation and light quality that consumers have come to expect from a Philips product. Leveraging innovations in LED technology and utility rebate programs, we continue to drive down the price and fuel mass adoption. With SlimStyle, we have slimmed the bulb and your utility bill, but not your wallet," he adds.


Philips is at the forefront of LED lighting technology and SlimStyle joins a portfolio which includes Philips hue, the company's "personal wireless lighting" offering that empowers users to create and control LED light using their smartphone or tablet.


 




AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
