New Cree LED Bulb billed as better


The Home Depot is offering a new LED light bulb from Cree that is said to be brighter and longer lasting.

The LED bulbs resemble tradition incandescent bulbs but offer superior performance at a lower price, according to Cree. The new bulb provides the same cost savings and 25,000-hour lifetime that made the original Cree LED Bulb America’s best-selling LED bulb, according to the company. The new bulbs are available at Home Depot as 40- and 60-watt replacements in two color temperatures (soft white and daylight) for just under $8.

“Since the launch of the original Cree® LED Bulb, consumers are rapidly switching to LED technology,” said Betty Noonan, Cree chief marketing officer. “Our New Cree LED Bulb goes a step further, delivering even better light performance at a lower price. This new bulb provides consumers a better overall lighting experience which we know drives even more rapid LED adoption.”

The New Cree LED Bulb emits a warm, omnidirectional light thanks to its 4Flow Filament Design. This innovation creates a compact, optically balanced light source inside a durable, shatter-proof housing. New Cree LED Bulb is said to consume up to 85 percent less energy during its 25,000-hour lifetime, is dimmable and backed by a three-year warranty.
