DALLAS, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- After seeing the MagicBulb at the IFA convention in Berlin in September 2010, the Gizmag team, renowned for their coverage of emerging and innovative technologies, stated: "Now here's something we've never seen before - a rechargeable lightglobe ... Does it have a significant and viable point-of-difference to other globes - you betcha!"
In the past few years, demand for increasingly affordable, earth-friendly lighting solutions has been on the rise. Retailers have stocked their shelves with a multitude of impressive, energy-efficient light bulbs. Yet none compare to MagicBulb, the world's first and only rechargeable light bulb.
Just introduced to United States vendors, MagicBulb was developed in Norway and now stands alone as the only light bulb that stays illuminated for hours, even without electricity.
"MagicBulb is an award-winning, patented LED light bulb that has taken off overseas and is now making its grand entrance into the United States market," says Ron Yiu, marketing director for LED International.US, a division of the Norway-based LED Electronics International AS that developed MagicBulb. "The response has been so overwhelming since we introduced the MagicBulb in Europe and Asia in late 2009 - I lost track of how many awards we've won so far, I think 20 to 25. MagicBulb is that impressive, mainly because it's extremely green, pays for itself many times over, and can be used in the event of a power outage, when it instantly turns into an emergency, portable light and operates as such for hours."
Because of its LED technology, and considering it can save up to 90 percent on electricity costs, MagicBulb has quickly garnered international acclaim through a lengthy list of awards, including the following:
- Genius Cup & Silver Medal, 2009 Genius Europe International Invention Fair
- Gold and Silver Medal, iENA Nuremberg International 2009, Germany
- Green Future Award & Gold Medal, International Inventions Fair 2009, Taipei
- Gold Medal, The 19th China National Invention Exhibition, September 2010
- IWIS Medal, International Warsaw Invention Show 2009
A full demonstration of the benefits behind MagicBulb has been posted on a new YouTube video at http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=gsmlPeIn05I&vq=hd720#t. Most notably, MagicBulb has earned recognition for its eco-friendly design, which contains no hazardous materials such as the mercury in some compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, and it's also free of ultraviolet rays and other radiations.
MagicBulb ranges anywhere from $25-$60. Once battery-charged, it can shine up to three hours. For more information, visit: http://www.magicbulb.net
