Liquid Cooling LEDs Available in 2012

Switch Lighting, creator of the only LED that uses liquid cooling technology, is on the cusp of a breakout year in 2012.  The Switch bulb creates the same warm color of an incandescent, yet it’s made with reclaimable or recyclable materials using the Cradle to Cradle methodology.  Inside the bulb is a liquid thermal cooling solution that helps cool the LEDs from all sides, producing more light from less LEDs.  In fact, a Switch bulb lasts about 25 times longer and uses 80% less energy than an incandescent.

The company featured a 75-watt replacement LED bulb at CES today.  This bulb produces 1,100 lumens using about 15 watts of energy or approximately 73 lumens per watt.

Switch will have other versions, too — 40w, 60w, 100w equivalents — all of which are dimmable and turn on instantly.  They don’t have mercury or other harmful chemicals and will be made in Freemont, California to start.

The first bulbs have shipped to hotels so far.  Consumers will be able to purchase them through Switch Lighting in mid-2012 for between $35-$45.  Switch is also working on a low-cost bulb at around $20, which could be available by Q3 2012.
