Date Announced: 20 Jul 2009 -- Eternaleds, Inc., announces the debut of their HydraLux-4 LED light bulb, the world’s first of its kind that uses liquid-cooling technology to look and function exactly like a regular light bulb.Los Angeles, CA -- Americans are frustrated at the lack of environmentally friendly lighting options in decorative applications like chandeliers, sconces or decorative lamps. Going “green” usually means replacing an incandescent bulb with a compact fluorescent (CFL) and sacrificing the good look that high-end fixtures give with incandescents. Eternaleds Inc. has introduced the world’s first liquid-cooled LED light bulb, the HydraLux-4, that gives true 360 degree light to finally allow consumers to maintain that “high-end” look, while getting the superior energy efficiency of LEDs. The Eternaleds Hydralux-4 consumes 4W to provide the light equivalent of 25W incandescents with a lifetime of 35,000 hours.“Most other LED globe shaped bulbs use metal or fans to surround the bulbs to keep the components inside cool. This design only allows light to come out of the top half of the bulb, like a spotlight,” explains Jeff Chan, Founder of Los Angeles-based Eternaleds, Inc.“This is the first LED light bulb to give true 360 degree light and really opens up applications that people can replace with LED lighting.”LED technology has become a popular option in light bulbs in the last several years because of their superior performance over both incandescents and CFLs. The Eternaleds HydraLux-4 has many benefits over these and other LED light bulbs including:· Saves money. At 8 hours a day, the HydraLux-4 only costs $1.75 per year* to run, saving an average of $157.00 over the lifetime of the bulb in electricity and bulb replacement costs.· Long Lasting. The HydraLux-4 is rated at 35,000 hours. At 8 hours usage per day, it will last 12 years.· Non-Hazardous. These bulbs contain no mercury, unlike CFLs so they don’t require special disposal or clean up. Likewise, the liquid inside is equivalent in composition to baby oil so it’s completely non-toxic and UL compliant.· Fully-dimmable. Many LED and CFL bulbs are not capable of being dimmed. The HydraLux-4 is fully dimmable, allowing consumers to create the ambiance they desire by using existing dimmer switches.· Outdoor-approved. Many LED bulbs have their components exposed to open air so are can’t be used outdoors. The HydraLux-4 is one of the few LED bulbs approved for both indoor and outdoor use.· Cool to the touch. The HydraLux-4 runs cool, cutting down on cooling costs as well as being safe in household applications.Eternaleds plans to announce 8W, 12W and 16W versions of the HydraLux by the end of 2009.The Eternaleds HydraLux-4 comes in two colors, Warm White and Daylight White, and can be ordered directly from Eternaleds.com at a list price of $34.99. Every purchase comes with a two-year warranty and 30-day money-back guarantee.*based on energy cost at $0.15/kWh (Source: Energy Information Administration)Eternaleds, Inc.Eternaleds, Inc., located in Los Angeles, was founded in 2006, with the goal of helping home and business owners become greener and cut their lighting costs through the use of LED lighting.
