CFL-Replacing LED Lamps with Simple Ballast Bypass Offer Energy Reduction up to 70 Percent, Longer Lifespan

Torrance, Calif., March 28, 2024—LEDtronics®, Inc., the industry’s most innovative LED lamp manufacturer for more than 40 years, announces new additions to its family of CFL-style, right-angle-illumination LED lamps for indoor lighting applications.

Offering greater longevity and shock resistance than compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), the latest LEDtronics lamps directly replace CFLs via simple ballast bypass in all directional lighting applications, such as 6-inch ceiling can lights beaming 90-degree down in commercial buildings; downlights in offices, shops and homes; wall sconces and lanterns; artwork lighting, accent and display lighting in showrooms, galleries, labs and utility rooms; museum and theater effects lighting, among many others.

The UL-listed lamps feature an adjustable 4-pin, G24Q base of white polycarbonate that pivots 340 degrees for easy change of light direction. Their silver-color, extruded aluminum housing offers excellent heat dissipation as well as a light body of only 100 grams, together with a polycarbonate lens. They boast 40 pieces of Epistar SMD2835 high-quality LEDs.

Both high-efficacy lamps consume less than 7 watts and replace 9W~13W CFL or 40W~60W incandescent counterparts, effectively reducing energy consumption by up to 70 percent. They operate in a wide voltage range of 100~277VAC. The LEDG24QBB model comes with a frosted white PC lens and provides 4000K natural-white illumination at a wide viewing angle of 115x125 degrees, offering 823 lumens and 240 maximum candelas, with a power factor of 0.97. The LEDG24QU model has a clear PC lens (no glass), and provides 2700K halogen-white light with a 100x105 degree beam angle, offering 613 lumens and 258 maximum candelas, with a power factor of 0.99.

The solid-state design of these CFL-replacing LED lamps renders them impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. They boast faster turn-on and reaction time compared to compact fluorescent lamps, yet provide higher luminous intensity and pure wavelength light for a more uniform and steady illumination—with neither halation nor flickering. In typical applications, they provide sharper directional light and better visibility than standard lamps and achieve full brightness more rapidly.

Built to ensure a longer operating lifespan and to minimize brightness deterioration due to overdriven LEDs, the lamps enjoy lumen maintenance over 70 percent at more than 50,000 hours. They operate within a wide temperature range of -20°C to +65°C, while their rugged but lightweight aluminum housing helps dissipate heat, keeping them cool.

Their long life and reliability in a wide range of operating temperatures lower costs by reducing re-lamp frequency, while their cool operation translates into less load on air conditioning.

Additionally, unlike the CFLs, LED lamps do not emit harmful radiation such as ultraviolet light, nor produce RF interference.
The LEDtronics LEDG24QBB and LEDG24QU CFL-replacement, right-angled LED lamps with a pivoting G24Q base come with an Unconditional 3-year U.S. manufacturer’s warranty, and are available through LEDtronics distributors. Quantity discounts are available, and other product options, such as other color temperatures, are available for qualified volume orders.
