One Child, One Bulb


Wired’s Gadget Lab recently ran a post about Panasonic’s EverLED lightbulb.  Panasonic claims that this bulb will last for 19 years before it needs changing.  The efficiency of these bulbs has been increased through better heat dissipation, which makes the bulb run cooler.  The 6.0 watt bulb puts out as much light as a 60 watt incandescent could for 40,000 hours, which the Gadget Lab has calculated come to 19 years if the bulb is run for 5.5 hours a day.  That means that if the bulb was in your baby’s bedroom, you wouldn’t have to change it until after he went away to college.

The EverLED is currently the world’s lightest bulb in terms of weight.  It sells for $40 but is only available in Japan for now.
