Wattlite champion LED this winter with new App

Share Article

The incandescent era is over and Wattlite have created a new app to help consumers calculate how much money they can save by exchanging their traditional bulbs for revolutionary ones.


The word revolutionary is often taken for granted when discussions about LED take place. The world has accepted them as the future but are still struggling to welcome them into their homes with any immediacy. The Wattlite app provides people with a page where they can put in how many bulbs they have in their house and what the savings would be if they invested in LED bulbs.

The stats are quite astonishing and one of the reasons why a Nobel Prize was awarded to Japanese researchers Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano this year for the invention of the light-emitting diode, or LED, that overcame the shortcomings of incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. The Nobel Committee even announced that: “Incandescent light bulbs lit the 20th century; the 21st century will be lit by LED lamps.”

In a world where one fourth of the electricity consumption is used for lighting LEDs provide a vital weapon in saving the Earth’s resources due to their efficiency. It has been a busy month for LEDs. First securing a Nobel Prize and then kitting out the Sistine Chapel with 7,000 light-emitting diodes. The futuristic revamp has given Michelangelo’s painted ceilings so much clarity that they probably appear more vibrant than when the artist looked over his own work, then lit by sun light from a small window.

What better time to buy LED lighting than at the beginning of what is widely recognised as the lighting season? The days get darker much earlier and people begin to max out all the lighting in their homes so they create a well-lit, cosy space to retreat to out of the cold night air.

The Wattlite app is again pushing LED to the fore of people’s minds and highlighting just how cost effective they can be. The initial expense of buying the technologically advanced bulbs is quickly recouped when the bulbs keep going, and going, and going, far beyond the life of a traditional incandescent bulb.

Mark Griffin, a spokesperson for Wattlite, is incredibly enthusiastic about the app, saying ‘we wanted to give people the means to calculate exactly how much they could save by switching to LED lighting – it is such a simple tool to use and really showcases the benefits of the easy switch from one technology to another’.
