Qnuru unveils the lighting industry's highest perfomance consumer-ready LED bulbs

Date Announced: 30 Nov 2010

Albuquerque, New Mexico — Qnuru™, the premier provider of energy efficient digital lighting solutions, today launched the Qnuru Prism™ product family of 44 LED bulbs for residential, office and light commercial buildings. Designed to fit the 4.7 billion U.S. light sockets, Prism LED bulbs consume one-fifth the energy of incandescent lamps, generate up to 1080 lumens and, with normal use, have a service life of 50,000 hours, compared to 2,500 hours for incandescent bulbs and 15,000 hours for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). Stylishly designed to resemble traditional light bulbs and fit standard sockets, the Prism product family includes A, B, MR, PAR, R, and T8 Series LED bulbs. Prism LED bulbs are available in warm white, cool white and dimmable variants.

Based on Cree XR-E LEDs, Qnuru’s Prism LED bulbs generate negligible heat, turn on instantly, are flicker free, and emit no UV radiation. All Prism bulbs are rigorously tested, UL Listed, RoHS Compliant, approved by CE and come with Qnuru’s 3-year replacement guarantee. Because they contain no mercury, they can be responsibly recycled with other metals and glass. The complete Prism product line can be purchased beginning today from Authorized Qnuru Dealers or online through the Qnuru website,www.qnuru.com. Qnuru is part of the Noribachi Group, a clean technology private equity firm.

Lights Out for the 60W Incandescent Bulb

Qnuru’s Prism LED bulbs are designed to address the demand for energy efficient, non toxic alternatives to today’s incandescent bulbs, which are only 10% efficient, wasting 90% of their energy to heat dissipation. Incandescent bulbs in the U.S. will be phased out beginning in 2012 because of a government mandate that all general-purpose light bulbs become 30% more energy efficient than current incandescent bulbs.

The centerpieces of Qnuru’s Prism product line are its A Series 60W replacement LED bulbs that come in two models: Opal A19 and Topaz A19. The highest performance 60W equivalent screw-in LED bulb available, Qnuru’s Opal A19 provides an output ranging from 590-630 lumens while using only 9 watts of energy. The Qnuru Topaz A19 LED bulb provides an output range of 420-520 lumens while consuming only 6 watts of energy. Both products come in a variety of color ranges and with dimming capabilities.

“Over the last three years we have developed the lighting industry’s highest performance LED solutions with our Vector 75-1500 watt retrofit product line,” commented Rhonda Dibachi, President and CEO of Qnuru. “It was a logical step to migrate our industrial-strength LED know-how to our Prism line of low wattage, consumer-ready LED bulbs. No other lighting company offers LED lighting solutions that span from 6 to 1500 watts and 100 to 30,000 lumens. Whether you are a car dealership with 1000 watt metal halide lights or a homeowner looking to replace a 60 watt bulb, we have the right size LED solution.”

The Noribachi Lineage

“Qnuru’s Prism LED bulbs illustrate the common approach all Noribachi Group companies share in creating energy efficient applications for businesses and consumers,” said Farzad Dibachi, Co-Founder of Noribachi. “We harness the foremost power efficiency technologies—in this instance, advanced LEDs and our patented power management platform—and connect them to renewable energy sources, all wrapped in lust-after industrial designs. Prism LED bulbs are a great example of the Noribachi Group’s single-minded commitment to injecting clean, green and renewable energy technologies and products into everyday life.”
