And apparently, great minds think alike. As I went to post the entry I wrote, I noticed I've been beaten to the punch. So I've evaluated my own entry to compliment the one already here. Other information regarding the new 27W (100W replacement) GE Energy Smart® LED bulb:
It's the work of Ohio-based scientists, engineers and product designers and is the outcome of a collaboration with ecomaginationsm Challenge winner Nuventix, a creator of LED cooling technologies for energy-efficient lighting. It incorporates proprietary synthetic jet technology and emits over 1600 lumens (over 60 lumens/watt) in a uniform, omnidirectional light distribution. Like other LEDs, it has a 25,000-hour life span, contains no mercury and comes on instantly to full brightness.
There's also a 75W replacement bulb.
I should start buying and packing away the LEDs I want (like this one) to use in our new home - which is getting closer and closer.
