Almere, Netherlands, October 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Gembird Europe BV is a European manufacturer of computer-related products. The EnerGenie LED bulb of Gembird is based upon (patent pending) heat pipe design. Heat pipes are a quite common solution for cooling computer CPUs but so far have never been used in LED bulbs.
The biggest problem of traditional LED bulbs is heat. The heat not only decreases overall performance of the bulb but also causes long-term degradation of the LEDs and even the bulb to totally fail. Gembird’s engineering team used their expert knowledge in the CPU cooling field to construct the most efficient LED bulb in the world.
EnerGenie LED bulb produces 135 lumens per watt. It is around 40% better than the traditional LED bulbs.
LEDs are placed in three dimensions in the EnerGenie LED bulb as opposed to the traditional 2D placement of the LEDs. The outcome is a far greater lit area - 330 degrees, while traditional LED bulbs barely provide 140-160 degrees.
Efficient cooling of the LEDs means there will be no decrease in light output over years of use, while traditional LED bulbs lose around 30% of their intensity after just 10000 hours.
The driver is well separated from the heat source - failure of EnerGenie LED bulb is virtually impossible.
An EnerGenie LED bulb works perfectly even in a closed light fixture - where the most LED bulbs would fail to work at all.
There are 3 modifications of EnerGenie LED bulb available:
- 8 W version producing 1080 lumens which is equivalent to 70 W incandescent;
- 10 W version producing 1350 lumens which is equivalent to 85 W incandescent;
- 12 W version producing 1640 lumens which is equivalent to 100 W incandescent.
Gembird has launched a Kickstarter project (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gembird/energenie-led-worlds-most-efficient-longlife-led-b) with the purpose to get the market feedback – the product is ready for mass production.
With the retail prices expected to be Euro 29.95 in Europe and USD 39.95 in USA per piece, with the available pre-order options the Kickstarter contributors could save up to 60% of the cost.
