CM_Capture_2_2.jpgConsumer health advocate Mike Adams has launched a company offering mercury free, energy efficient, high-brightness LED lights to replace typical light bulbs in homes and offices. EcoLED’s use 1/10th the electricity of incandescent light bulbs, contain zero mercury and are estimated to last 50,000 hours before burning out (approximately a decade of normal use).

The premium 10-watt EcoLED white light bulb replaces a 100-watt incandescent bulb and contains a single, extremely bright 10-watt LED. The company estimates the light bulb will save you nearly $450 in electricity over its life while reducing CO2 emissions by over 9,000 pounds compared to regular light bulbs.

The other cool thing is that, unlike compact fluorescent bulbs, these bulbs contain NO mercury . The major product concern is that they are directional (note they kind of look like a showerhead) so they may not work in all lighting situations.

EcoLED’s work in standard light sockets worldwide (from 85 – 240 volts AC, covering most countries), run cool and produce very little heat. The bulbs are precision machined and unconditionally guaranteed. Packaging includes a Certificate of CO2 Emissions Reduction.

Compatible with AC voltages in most countries, including the US, Canada, the EU, Australia, etc.

These new LED lights are pricey, running from $39 for the 3 watt halogen MR16 replacement lamp, to $99 for the 10 watt (100 watt equivalent) top of the line bulb – and note these are “sale” prices.
