General Electric has come up with an LED replacement for 40-watt bulbs, where this candidate is good for up to 17 years while outputting 450 lumens of brightness. Known as the Energy Smart LED bulb, it shares somewhat similar output as a 40-watt incandescent although consuming a mere 9 watts of juice while it is at work. Capable of dispersing light more evenly compared to typical LED lights, the Energy Smart LED bulb will cost somewhere between $40 to $50 when it hits the market later this fall at best and early next year at worst. Each bulb comes with a 25,000 hour rating, and is environmentally friendly since it doesn’t hold any mercury. Life’s all about the small details, ain’t it?
