Quest for the Holy Grail: LED A19 Light Bulb Beam Angle

Lighting manufacturers worldwide have a quest, a prize, a holy grail.  Make an energy efficient, regular, old fashioned light bulb.  Consumers today aren’t happy with compact fluorescent (CFLs) that look more like a water park slide than a bulb.  If facts, hundreds of people have hoarded traditional incandescent lights in anticipation of the government pulling them off of our retail shelves.

LED lights have the same quest for the holy grail of lighting.  GE and Phillips manufacture light bulbs that look like a claw, mushroom or snow cone, respectively.  They don’t look like a standard incandescent light bulb.  They aren’t the Holy Grail, just a transitional technology.  They look great inside a lampshade, but look alien and out of place on their own.  Plus, you can’t clamp a lampshade to any of those light bulbs.

LEDshine360 – The Holy Grail of LED Lighting.  It looks just like a light bulb should.

The problem is LED beam angle

s are directional and the key to long life is extracting heat away from the diodes.  That’s why you often see the snow cone effect.  Manufacturers just put the LEDs on a flat surface and the cone is just the aluminum heat sink.  Bulky, visually unappealing, and limits the beam angle of the lamp to 180 degrees.Would you settle for half a lamp?  Would you settle for a beam angle that only shines up, not out or down?

LED A19 Comparison

Our LEDshine360 shines evenly in every direction directly contrasted with a box store item that only shines up.

Most people don’t, which is why most LEDs sit on the shelves at box stores not moving while pe

ople still hoard incandescent light bulbs.  The lights look different and don’t conform to the standard beam angle or look requirements.The LEDshine360 is the Holy Grail of the lighting industry.  Our patented heat sink technology positions diodes modularly along an aluminum heat sink directly connected to the LED driver.  The driveris encased within a ceramic heat sink.  The light bulb has a horizontal beam angle of 360 degrees – no compromises.  It looks like a standard light bulb – no confusion.If you’re looking for an energy efficient light bulb that looks just like a regular light bulb, this is it.  The only difference will be in your energy bill.

    I was reading through your blog, and thought you and your readers might be interested in our upcoming LED Lighting Academy taking place in the Greater Los Angeles Area. We are gathering industry professionals to speak at a 3 day conference on LED technology Apr 30-May 2 in Arcadia, CA. This event will also represent the kickoff for the Certified LED Professional (CLEDP) designation, where professionals will be recognized for their achievements and will help further the industry as it leads the world’s future lighting.

    Please help us spread the word!

    Thanks and have a great day!

    This LED device looks awesome. I think this would enhance the LED lighting experience. They are looking trendy yet brightness effective. So thanks a lot for updating me with this decent LED device.

    Incandescent bulbs are manufactured in a wide range of sizes, light output, and voltage ratings, from 1.5 volts to about 300 volts. They require no external regulating equipment, have low manufacturing costs, and work equally well on either alternating current or direct current. As a result, the incandescent lamp is widely used in household and commercial lighting, for portable lighting such as table lamps, car headlamps, and flashlights, and for decorative and advertising lighting.

      Hi Tod,

      Thanks for the comments. Incandescents have served well for the past 200 years. It’s time to let that technology go into the history books and let LED lighting and other, more efficient lighting technologies take over.

    Most people prefer to buy LED lights in comparison of traditional bulbs because led lights produce less heat and saves energy. LED lights are cost effective and energy efficient diode. The installation of light emitting diodes is also very easy.
