Philips removes heat sink fins from 60W A-19 LED bulb
By Alyssa Dalton
December 19, 2012 – Using 11W of power while outputting 830 lumens, the latest generation of Philips’ 60W A-19 LED bulb uses 10% less energy than its 12.5W predecessor, while increasing brightness by nearly 5%, says the company. The new lamp also replaces heat sink fins with a more streamlined appearance, and is designed to reduce energy usage by 85% compared to the traditional 60W incandescent. Dimming capabilities, with the potential to dim down to 2% of light level, are also available.
