Are the standard light bulbs just too boring for you? Well, what about LED lights? LED lights generally aren’t used to light up your living room, but with technology, anything is possible, right? Acriche, a division of Seoul Semiconductor has announced a 100 lm/W LED bulb, and it looks like LED bulbs are going to get a lot more commonplace. The press release reads:
Seoul Semiconductor, a leading global LED manufacturer, announced today that it will introduce the first 100 lm/W AC LED light source during the first quarter of 2010. Offering 25% greater efficiency than existing LED light products, this latest offering from Seoul Semiconductor’s Acriche brand will be available for sampling by March 1. It will be supported with a global marketing campaign.
Seoul Semiconductor, which has pioneered development and manufacturing of next-generation LED light sources since 1992, notes that Acriche outlasts incandescent and compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, and due to its long life is less costly to use than traditional lighting methods.
Like other Acriche products, the new 100 lm/W LED needs no AC-DC converter. Additionally, it generates less than 1/10th the carbon emissions of an incandescent bulb, an important consideration in meeting new regulatory standards in markets worldwide
