Philips SlimStyle LED Bulbs

LED bulbs will undoubtedly save homeowners money in the long run. Regardless, it’s still a little difficult to justify the up-front costs of some, which can often take years of electricity savings to offset. Philips’ upcoming SlimStyle LED Bulbs enter at a price point that’s to be much more reasonable (though not yet officially announced). SlimStyle is equivalent to a 60W incandescent bulb in warm light output, though it consumes just 10.5W itself, and bypasses the need for cost-boosting heat sinks thanks to a revolutionary flat design that’s made of plastic instead of glass. It’s also rated for 25,000 hours of use, equivalent to roughly 20 years at about 4 hours a day, and should cost a little more than a dollar per year in electricity.
