Best-in-Class LED From SWITCH Infinia Now Available Nationwide

January 8th, 2014 by  



switch infinia_illuminated LEDSWITCH Lighting has just announced nationwide (US) availability of the award-winning SWITCH infinia, “the top-performing LED bulb in the general use category for residential and commercial applications.”

There are 40-watt and 60-watt equivalents of the SWITCH infinia, and the 60We is sold for as low as $11.99, but they can get down to $3.99 with utility rebates.

These LED bulbs are so good that SWITCH sells them with a lifetime residential warranty (3-year commercial warranty).

“The bulbs can be found at commercial distributors, lighting showrooms, and numerous retailers, including nearly 500 Batteries Plus Bulbs stores nationwide,” a news release about the nationwide availability states.

The newest bulb from SWITCH is the best performing, lowest priced 60W equivalent LED bulb and carries both ENERGY STAR certification and a UL rating for enclosed fixtures….

The infinia can be used in any fixture (UL rated for enclosed fixtures), any orientation, and both indoors and out. The bulb provides the same light distribution and quality as an incandescent bulb, while using up to 85 percent less energy, offers a wide range of dimmability, and the technology extends the lifetime….

SWITCH infinia uses the company’s patented LQD Cooling System™ – the most innovative and effective thermal management system on the market today. The LQD Cooling System utilizes a coolant made of liquid silicone, and a highly efficient and reliable electronic driver. SWITCH is up to 40% more effective at cooling LEDs than typical air-cooled LED bulbs.

The infinia was also selected as a 2014 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards honoree in the Eco Design & Sustainable Technologies product category. The infinia was recently named a winner by Lighting for Tomorrow, one of the most prestigious awards in the lighting industry. Lighting for Tomorrow is a design competition that recognizes energy efficient decorative lighting products and technologies on the market.

It all sounds good to me.

I’m testing out another LED right now. It’s great in my opinion, but now I’m curious to see how it would compare to the SWITCH infinia. I’ll have to try to get my hand on one of the infinia’s as well to let you know. However, if you happen to have experience with the infinia, feel free to chime in below!
