Cree Launches LED Bulbs with 4Flow Filaments

Cree Launches LED Bulbs with 4Flow Filaments

Cree, the North Carolina-based LED and semiconductor manufacturer, took the lighting world by storm with the announcement and subsequent release of their innovative line of consumer LED bulbs.

They won praise from sites all over the Internet for their familiar shape and stellar light output.  With the availability of these product approaching the two-year mark, Cree is looking to have lightning strike twice with the introduction of their new LED bulbs featuring a completely new look.

These LED bulbs with 4FLOWfilament design are currently available as either 40W- or 60W-equivalent products in your choice of Soft White (2700K) or Daylight (5000K) configurations.  This new design will likely help people feel even better about upgrading their lighting as the design of these new bulbs makes them look even closer to the incandescent bulbs they'll replacing than their current LED bulbs.  They are still rated to last you well over 20 years* and will continue to cost you under $2** a year to operate.

They also will continue to be UL Damp Rated which is great if you’re planning on using these outdoors but not subjecting them to direct contact to the elements.

It’s important to note that while many specs have remained the same there are several changes outside of the new look incorporated into their new products versus their predecessor.
