Internet lighting retailer 1000Bulbs.com will be celebrating the launch of its own line of 60-watt equal LED light bulbs at the groundbreaking price of only $5.99. Up until now, the industry-wide average price for a 60-watt replacement LED light bulb has been just under $10. As 60-watt incandescent bulbs are a popular wattage for many household bulbs, the introduction of this LED replacement puts 1000Bulbs.com at the head of the race for making energy-efficient LEDs more affordable for household use.
Released under 1000Bulbs.com’s Precision Lighting & Transformer (PLT) brand, these A19 LED bulbs are true 60-watt incandescent replacements, emitting 800 lumens of 2700K warm white light while using only 10 watts of energy. They boast the same design and light quality as the bulbs they replace, along with the added advantages of superior technology, energy-efficient performance, and exponentially longer lifespans. Versatile, these PLT LEDs can also be used in either indoor or outdoor enclosed fixtures, but are most commonly used in indoor lamps and ceiling fixtures.
“We are proud to release our very own 60-watt A19 LED lamps under our PLT brand,” says 1000Bulbs.com CEO Kim Pedersen. “These lamps are incredible for the price and quality.”
Pricing this affordable for a 60-watt equal LED is a huge milestone in the lighting world. Incandescent light bulbs that operate at 60 watts have been standard for use in the home. However, they are no longer being manufactured due to the Energy Independence and Security Act’s incandescent bulb phase-out earlier this year. Many consumers have been hesitant to transition to LED light bulbs due to their traditionally high prices, but this new PLT LED light bulb allows consumers to upgrade from their older 60-watt bulbs without greatly overstepping their budgets.
1000Bulbs.com will also be offering 40 and 50-watt incandescent replacement LED A19s at comparably low prices. They will come in dimmable and non-dimmable, as well as 2700K and 3000K options. A dimmable version of the 60-watt, 2700K replacement A19 will also be available later this summer for about one dollar more. 1000Bulbs.com proudly stands by each bulb in its new line of LED A19s with a two-year warranty.
