Philips has been offering some interesting lightbulbs over the years that can do a number of things, one of which is save you a ton of cash on your electricity bills. Starting in January, the U.S. will put an end to incandescent bulbs as the country attempts to move on to a future filled with LED bulbs. Philips is stepping up their LED game with its new 60-watt-equivalent SlimStyle LED bulb.
The SlimStyle LED bulb is fully dimmable and fits inside a standard A19 socket, offering a 2700K soft white glow while only consuming a total of $1.26 per year in electricity, so says Philips. As you can see from the image above, the SlimStyle LED offers a flat design which Philips says will not only to be able to provide light, but will also require a much smaller heatsink than other LEDs, keeping it cool much cooler, as well.
Those who are interested in picking up the Philips SlimStyle LED bulb can do so by heading on over to their local Home Depot starting on January 2nd as that’s when the company says they should be available. Best of all, the SlimStyle LED bulb won’t break your bank as it’ll cost less than $10.
