(PRWEB UK) 1 October 2013
The New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) have invented a new method of lighting your way during a power cut, with a new light bulb that also acts as a rechargeable LED flash light, reports DVICE (September 24th). The product acts like a completely normal bulb when screwed into ceiling lights or a table lamp, but can also be unscrewed and used as a functional torch when there’s a power-cut or other lighting emergency.
The bulb acts as a 40-watt light that uses only 6-watts of electricity, and will produce up to 60,000 hours of the brightest light. The product’s battery is charged during the time it is screwed into a standard light socket, so it’s ready to go as soon as required. This eliminates the need to keep your torch stocked up with fresh batteries.
It has an extendable handle that can be pulled out once the bulb has been unscrewed, when it will produce up to three hours of emergency light. Because it uses LED technology that doesn’t heat up in the same way as incandescent lights, unscrewing the bulb won’t be a problem even after hours of use.
Lights 4 Living, a leading home lighting company based in the UK, have responded positively to the news of MoMA’s rechargeable LED torch. A spokesperson from the company said:
“LEDs have increased the potential of many home lighting solutions, and this resourceful and innovative new light bulb from the Museum of Modern Art is a great example of that. Now, using light bulbs like this one in wall lights or ceiling lights such as those supplied by Lights 4 Living means that you’ll never be caught out during a power cut or when going into the loft or garage.”
