This seems to be a busy week for LED bulb announcements. We’ve already seen a 20-watt, clear globe, filament-style bulb and a 40-watt A19 bulb that takes the shape of a standard frosted incandescent. And now, LEDO has a series of three LED bulbs — Bulled Classic, Bulled Modular, Bulled Star — that provide the 60-watt equivalent, which is on par with the typical incandescent, but these bulbs use only 11 watts.
Toshiba recently announced a new A19 LED lamp that is shaped more like an incandescent than some of the other LED bulbs we’ve seen so far, excluding perhaps Panasonic’s LED with a filament appearance. The new bulb is dimmable, available in 2700K and 4000K colors, outputs 450 lumens, and contains no lead or mercury. The 40-watt replacement uses 8.4 watts and reaches full brightness instantly.
