It will be available as Edison-type, bayonet cap, or downlight with everything necessary to work at home or in a business with a pledge from $69 on Kickstarter.

LED Downlights: CR6-575L vs. CR6-800L

Although the new, four-inch CR4-575L is available at Home Depot, the updated, six-inch CR6 is not at this time.  So, as Doug pointed out in our comments, it may be worthwhile to post a comparison of the existing CR6-575L with the updated CR6-800L.  Before doing that, note the new CR4-575L has similar specs to the existing CR6-575L with the main difference being one is made for a 4″ housing and the other is for a 6″ housing.  Here’s a head-to-head of the popular six-inch CR6 downlights.

Alva: An Edison Inspired LED Lamp

Luke Anderson started with a reasonable request for $4,000 on Kickstarter, and he reached funding in 24 hours.  Now, with 14 days left, Anderson has $25,000 in support for Alva — The Lightbulb Lamp.  It’s 8.5″ wide by 17.5″ tall and comes in brown, white, or black ceramic base options.  The lamp is powered by a replaceable LED with a hand-shaped filament.  Alva* looks like a classic early Edison bulb, but it’s a lot bigger and will retail after the Kickstarter campaign for $550.
