LED Bulb Innovator, Cree, Unveils New Cutting Edge Prototype

Monday, December 5th, 2011

LED lights are already on the cutting edge of technology. But LED technology at its highest level of performance is innovative and forward-looking – as demonstrated by the latest LED light by Cree. Announced in August, this new LED light prototype exceeds the U.S. Department of Energy’s standards for both output and efficiency.

A traditional 75-watt incandescent bulb produces 1,100 lumens at only 14.6 lumens per watt (LPW). Using Cree TrueWhite Technology, the new LED light delivers more than 1,300 lumens while consuming a mere 8.7 watts – that’s 152 lumens per watt. Third-party testing has confirmed that this bulb is both brighter and more energy efficient than other LED lights – not to mention traditional bulbs. Plus, the new LED technology produces a high-quality, warm white light.
