1000Bulbs.com, Internet-based lighting retailer has set an innovative standard with a new LED lamp of 800-lm output efficiency equivalent of a 60W traditional bulb only for $5.99.

The lamp does not have dimmable feature and throws light in the forward direction, but with a warm 2700K-CCT glow, it gives an A19 incandescent bulb feeling.

The invention and marketing process of this new product is part of 1000Bulbs PLT (Precision Lighting & Transformer brand) of products. The company assigns a specific design and then hands over the production responsibility to any manufacturing contractor.

Luigi Ferguson, marketing manager of the company said that 1000Bulbs has been involved in the designing and development process of this bulb, evaluating samples and ensuring their quality.

The PLT 101233A19FR model is their first branded A 19 series lamp in home production category.

The price of the lamp is lowest in the industry compared to any 60W-equivalent lamp.

“We are proud to release our very own 60W A19 LED lamps under our PLT brand. These lamps are incredible for the price and quality,” said, Kim Pedersen, CEO, 1000Bulbs.com.

The new lamps have a two-year warranty with a lifetime at 25,000 hours. The products can be used for indoors and outdoors and even in enclosed fixtures. The 800-lm product dissipates 10W.

Anyway, the price comparison is not frank as other rival brands are dimmable designs and that feature increases cost in the driver electronics. But many sockets don’t need dimmable lamps nowadays.

In near future, the company has plans to manufacture a dimmable version for a $1 premium. There will be 40W- and 50W-equivalent products also in the track.

On the other hand, it is not clear whether the new design is meant for Energy Star listing. The lamp produces a nice, uniform beam, but delivers very little light downward towards the base.

The initial review of the lamp proves such a listing impossible as it is found difficult to meet their omnidirectional quality specifications.
