The LED bulbs have already garnered praise from 1000Bulbs.com customers, who have consistently rated the product line with 4 and 5-star reviews.
Garland, TX (PRWEB) March 19, 2012
1000Bulbs.com has announced a strategic partnership with Burleson, Texas based Kobi Electric, a manufacturer of low-priced LED light bulbs. The partnership adds 10 new products to the LED lighting selection at 1000Bulbs.com, including standard shape LED light bulbs and LED reflector bulbs.
The selection on the 1000Bulbs.com website includes six different versions of a standard shape A19 LED light bulb. An 8 watt version comes in two color temperatures, 2700K "warm white" and 5000K "cool white," and produces 450 lumens (equivalent to a 40 watt incandescent light bulb). An 11 watt version comes in the same two color temperatures but produces 600 lumens, which is equivalent to a 60 watt incandescent light bulb. Finally, the selection includes the "Warm 60+", an 800 lumen bulb equivalent to an incandescent bulb between 60 and 75 watts.
Also represented are four reflector LED bulbs: Two versions of an R30 and two versions of an R40. The R30 LED bulb comes in both a 2700K and a 5000K version. The 12 watt bulb replaces a 65 watt incandescent. The R40 LED bulb comes in the same color temperatures, uses 14 watts, and replaces an 85 watt incandescent. 1000Bulbs.com anticipates that Kobi’s departure from the flat face PAR profile of most LED reflectors will be popular to homeowners, who have traditionally preferred the convex-faced incandescent R-shape bulb.
1000Bulbs.com and Kobi Electric share the mission of bringing low-priced, high tech lighting products to consumers. Kobi Electric identifies itself as "established for one purpose: to finally make LED lighting for the home affordable to everyone." 1000Bulbs.com, in turn, sells some of the Kobi-branded bulbs around $15, much less than usual LED light bulb pricing that ranges from $25 to $45.
Despite low prices, Kobi assures customers of the high quality of their LED products. Kobi offers a lifetime warranty that guarantees lumen maintenance of at least 80%. The LED bulbs have already garnered praise from 1000Bulbs.com customers, who have consistently rated the product line with 4 and 5-star reviews. One customer, who goes by the handle btpark, said of Kobi's dimmable R30 bulb, "The Kobi bulbs are very bright, very well designed bulbs. I am impressed how much light they produce for so little power. I calculate that they will pay for themselves within 1-2 years."
