LEDtronics released an LED replacement for A 19-style bulbs for home and commercial use.
The DEC-A19-5X1W DécorLED Series has softly diffused, precision domed lensing that directs light at a 95-degree beam. It comes in either Warm White (3000 Kelvin) or Pure White (6000K) versions. LEDtronics says that the bulbs offer long-term durability, low power consumption, environmental sustainability and money savings. They reportedly run on a flexible voltage range of 85-265 VAC requiring no special adapters. According to the company, they replace 40W to 50W incandescent bulbs while consuming less than 7 watts of power.
In addition, the series DEC-A19-5X1W DécorLED boasts an outstanding color quality of up to 85 CRI, a horizontal beam spread of around 130 degrees, powerful 416 (XPW) and 340 lumens (XIW) of brightness.
LEDtronics contends that the bulbs allow easy drop-in installation in existing 26mm Edison or E27 European screw-in base sockets. The bulbs have a UV-stabilized polycarbonate lens over five 1-watt, high-power Cree XR-E LEDs encapsulated around a unique grill-style, heat-sinking magnesium-alloy housing.
The bulbs reportedly have an average estimated lifespan of more than 50,000 hours (5.7-plus years) or more than 20 times longer than the equivalent incandescent bulb. Series features enhanced passive cooling that reduces junction temperatures, extending the life of the lamp. The fact that they run remarkably cool also means they greatly reduce the fire hazard normally associated with the use of incandescent lamps.
LEDtronics says that the directional lights are perfect for use in recessed lighting, table/floor lamps, accent and decorative lighting, garage or workshop lights, down lights and ceiling cans, marquee signage and retail display. The lamps come with a 3-year warranty period and CE safety assurance, and are RoHS certified-they adhere to strict European guidelines concerning the Reduction of Hazardous Substances such as lead and mercury. They retail for $57.90 each.
