Cree Soft White LED Bulb

Thus far, LED bulbs don’t usually look much like normal incandescent bulbs due to the need for large heat sinks to cool their light source. Cree’s latest finally does away with these unsightly contraptions, instead employing cross-flow ventilation to passively cool the LED within. It’s also dimmable (without buzzing), emits omnidirectional light, and costs just about nothing to operate compared to traditional bulbs. And with a lightweight, shatterproof design and 25,000 hour rating — or 20+ years at 3 hours a day — a small investment in a few of these bulbs is bound to pay off.
