GE Launches Incandescent-Shaped CFL Bulb


Do you like the environmental friendliness of CFL bulbs but also enjoy the shape of incandescent bulbs? GE has a solution — the world’s first incandescent-shaped CFL bulb. The 8,000-hour CFL is guaranteed for 5 years based on 4 hours of daily use.

The CFL bulb is placed inside of a typical incandescent bulb glass which will be frosted in the final product.

GE will debut the 9 and 20 watt versions of the bulb at Ace Hardware and Target in January. The bulb will be released widely in the Spring, and a 100 watt version should be available in 2010.
