New LED Light Bulb Lasts 30 Years

October 23rd, 2008 by

Looking for an energy-efficient yet attractive alternative to CFL light bulbs? Check out Frog Design’s innovative LED bulb. It’s shaped like a regular bulb instead of a LED— and best of all, it lasts for 30 years.

Frog Design’s high-powered LED uses less power than a CFL and has a pleasant light output. Since the bulb is shaped traditionally, it can fit into any light socket. The heat generated by the LED is absorbed by its  aluminum base— thus eliminating the issue of excess heat shortening the its life.

Will Frog Design’s LED live up to the hype? I suppose we’ll have to wait for the bulb’s release to find out.
