Switch announces industry-leading warranty -- lifetime for residential usage
Lifetime warranty for residential use, 5 year warranty for commercial use.
April 18, 2013 – San Jose, CA: SWITCH® Lighting, makers of the only family of liquid-cooled LED replacement A-Lamps, today announced the industry’s longest and most comprehensive warranty for the current LED A-Lamp product. The residential warranty is being extended to a lifetime warranty and the commercial warranty is being extended to a five year warranty for SWITCH’s LED A-Lamps, including: SWITCH40, SWITCH60, SWITCH75, SWITCH100, and the newest product, the SWITCH3-Way.
"This is the lighting industry’s most extensive warranty for this category of LED lamps,” said EC Sykes, CEO of SWITCH Lighting. “The results of life testing conducted by independent tests labs highlight the great reliability, life, and quality of our A-Lamps, which is due to our best in-class thermal management technology. This warranty demonstrates the confidence that we have in our family of LED A-Lamps to our residential and commercial customers.”
SWITCH LED A-Lamps provide the same warm, familiar glow of an incandescent A-Lamp, while using up to 80% less energy and lasting 25 times as long. They fit into standard light sockets, are dimmable, and can be used in the same manner as any incandescent or compact fluorescent A-Lamp - in any orientation, any fixture anywhere. SWITCH A-Lamps pose no environmental hazards and have no toxic ingredients, unlike the mercury found in CFLs.
SWITCH's family of LED A-Lamps use the company's patented LQD Cooling System™ - the most innovative and effective thermal management system on the market today. The LQD Cooling System is a blend of the company's overall electronic design and proprietary technologies: a coolant made of liquid silicone, and a patented, highly efficient and reliable electronic driver. SWITCH is up to 40% more effective at diffusing heat and cooling LEDs than typical air-cooled LED A-Lamps.
SWITCH’s full family of LED A-Lamps will be on display at booth #213 at this year’s LIGHTFAIR in Philadelphia from April 23 – 25.
