CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Finally Light Bulb Company, www.finallybulbs.com, today introduced the first energy-efficient A type light bulb that truly replicates the familiar warm and reassuring glow of the now-banned incandescent bulbs that consumers love and miss. The Finally™ light bulb uniquely incorporates the same classic design of an incandescent bulb, provides the energy-efficiency consumers demand and produces light quality that LED and CFL bulbs cannot deliver at an affordable price.
Welcome to the future. You don't need to forfeit quality for efficiency, or pay an exorbitant price for the right light. The long-lasting and energy-efficient Finally™ light bulb is familiar but better. It may look, and turn on instantly, just like a traditional incandescent bulb, but the Finally™ bulb is 75% more efficient than an incandescent and will last 15 times longer – providing up to $75 worth of savings over its lifetime. Using Acandescence™, new technology that is not LED-or CFL-based, the Finally™ bulb is the first light bulb made in the recognizable light bulb shape to actually reproduce the reassuring warmth and omnidirectional light of beloved incandescent bulbs. Ideal for indoor and outdoor use, Finally™ bulbs fit everywhere and work anywhere. Best of all, Finally™ bulbs will retail for less than $8.00.
"I like to tell people that their search for the right light is over," said John Goscha, Founder and CEO of the Finally Light Bulb Company. "Until now, consumers basically had a choice between low-quality light, or paying exorbitant prices for brighter light that can't help but feel cold and clinical. I challenged Finally's team of scientists to engineer a new, energy-efficient lighting technology that would look and work just like our old incandescents, and produce that same warm, familiar glow we all love. And they did. Our light bulbs capture it all."
Finally™ bulbs use Acandescence™, a new and innovative lighting technology developed exclusively by the Finally Light Bulb Company with one goal in mind: to reliably recreate the same light as incandescent without the energy waste and without excessive cost. The light it produces is both eco and consumer-friendly: easy on the wallet and comfortable on the eyes. With roots in induction technology, regarded by many to be one of the best kept secrets in energy-efficient lighting, Acandescence™ uses a copper coil– not a tungsten filament or an electrode – to generate light. A dedicated team, including Dr. Victor Roberts, the former Head of Lighting Research at General Electric and Dr. Walter Lapatovich, formerly of Osram Sylvania, successfully compressed and harnessed the best natural attributes of the induction process to create Acandescence™.
"The big lighting companies are focused on producing replacement bulbs with LED and CFL technology," said Dr. Ihor Lys, Board Member. "Both are undeniably efficient, but LEDs pose a huge affordability challenge for consumers, while CFLs have a really hard time replicating the quality of light and Instant On performance of the traditional incandescent lamps. Put them in your home and you'll immediately notice the difference."
Finally™ bulbs will soon be available in 60, 75 and 100 Watt Replacements. The Finally™ 60 Watt Replacement light bulb is available now for pre-order and is expected to be offered at select retail outlets in July for a suggested retail price of $7.99 (U.S.). The Finally 75 Watt and 100 Watt Replacements are expected to be available for pre-order in the fall. For more information – and to pre-order the right light – visit www.finallybulbs.com
