Experimenting with light bulbs is becoming more and more common. Some create smart lights that can be accessed with remote control. Others create lights that consume little energy, but give much light. Depending on color, size and power, light bulbs come in various styles. Some are common, others modern. Some even produce Wi-Fi, while others can be used as torchlight. A new invention strives to combine a modern design with power. The SlimStyle light bulb is created by Philips and awes people with its design: it is a flat light bulb.
Do not think the SlimStyle light bulb resembles the series of tubes that used to adorn classrooms or hospital rooms. No, this new bulb resembles a classic light bulb that has been run over by a truck, had it been made out of rubber.
The SlimStyle light bulb has an indented part where designers arranged LED lights set in a horseshoe. This encourages heat dispersion more than classic LEDs do. As a result this new type of bulb no longer needs aluminum heat sinks. As a result the price of the bulb goes down a bit.
It can be screwed in a regular light socket. Its light is warm and consistent. It burns at 2,700K and give the same amount of light as a 60-watt bulb. Thanks to its LEDs it only consumes 10.5 watts. The SlimStyle light bulb will last about 22 years, therefore you will have to change it a maximum of four times during your lifetime. Unfortunately, it only comes with a three-year limited-coverage warranty. Still, for a simple light bulb that is not bad.
The price of the SlimStyle light bulb remains unknown at the moment, but it will surely be under $10. It will go on sale starting from January 2nd at Home Depot. Would you buy this brand new invention?
