LED Light Bulb Gets Run Over By Truck & Survives (Video)

What happens when you run over our LED light bulb with a truck?

Light bulbs smash, shatter, splinter and get destroyed when run over by almost 5000lbs.  It’s okay, most things do.  Your computer would get crushed, so would your TV, and your iPod or radio.  Almost everything electronic will get demolished when run over by a truck, including most light bulbs.

Our LEDshine360 LED light bulb survives getting run over by a truck.

That’s right! We put our light bulb through the ultimate test and ran the LED shine360 over with our company Toyota Tacoma.  We set the bulb on a hard surface, so nobody could make excuses.  The light bulb was then run over by our truck.  The driver gets out of the car, screws in the bulb and – presto!  LED there be LIGHT!  Oh, and we recorded the whole thing.  So don’t take our word for it, check out our video of our LED light bulb surviving getting run over by a truck.

 Yep, it still lights up!

We keep putting our LED light bulb, the LEDshine360, through a series of durability tests.  It’s the most durable light bulb on the planet, and we can prove it.  Consider this series of videos the ‘Tough Mudder’ of LED lighting – or lighting in general.

Of course, runners of the Tough Mudder can technically pass on certain obstacles during the run.  Our LED light bulb had nowhere to run.  The truck ran it over.  It survived and still lights up.  Think about how durable that would be in your home.  Kid proof.  Drop proof.  Shatter proof.  Truck proof.

That’s the LEDshine360.   Truck proof.

Which LED light bulb survives getting thrown off of roof?

We decided to throw some LED light bulbs off of the roof and see which, if any, could still illuminate after impact.  Up to the roof of the Erie Technology Incubator we went with two light bulbs in our hands, the LEDshine360 and the new Cree Bulb.

Watch our video to see which LED light bulb survived getting thrown off of the roof:

In the video, our VP Josh has two light bulbs in his hands.  First he throws the new Cree Bulb.  Upon impact, the glass splintered and the cover separated from the base.  Inside, the electronics got ripped from the force of the brick.  It’s probably safe to say the Cree Bulb reacted like we would expect.  If you drop a light bulb, you expect it to break.  We’ve been handling light bulbs for years and the Cree Bulb falls right in line with every other fragile light bulb.  If you drop it from, oh let’s just say a roof, or hit it with a hockey stick, it will break and be unusable.

The LEDshine360 is the only exception to this standard.  It looks like a light bulb, but performs like an LED – plus it’s safe for your kids to handle while lit, your pets to bump it, your spouse to drop it, a random golf club to whack it, or other household accidents waiting to happen.  Our LED light bulb is durable!

Disclaimer: we prefer you not throw anything off of the roof unless you are the VP and that confident in your product line.  We know none of our competition will be throwing anything anytime soon.  Their bulbs break, ours stays lit.
