If you weren’t already busy enough keeping track of all the new LED bulbs hitting the market, here’s one more. This is a 60-watt equivalent, omnidirectional led lamp by Florida-based LEDnovation. The EnhanceLite A19 LED is designed and manufactured in the USA and has the following specifications: 810 lumens, 9.4 watts, 2700 Kelvin, 94 CRI, and a five-year warranty.
In a statement announcing the new bulb, LEDnovation says this is the “world’s most efficient 60 watt-equivalent omnidirectional A19 lamp.”
By comparison, for example, the Philips AmbientLED A-shape bulb has Energy Star certification and the following specifications: 800 lumens, 12.5 watts, 2700 Kelvin, 80 CRI, and six-year warranty.
The EnhanceLite LED is dimmable, free of mercury and lead, and rated for 50,000 hours. LEDnovation is already producing the next-generation bulb and will start shipping product in early January 2012. I’ll update this article when we get more information about pricing and availability.
