June 1, 2013 – American Illumination’s Verde LED GU24 is a direct replacement lamp for 13W CFLs. Part of the Verde Retrofit Series, the company says this model is one of the few GU24 direct replacement light bulbs available, and is the only one compatible with the GU24 locking ring. The bulb consumes 8.5W of total power and emits over 700 lumens (warm white) for an 80+ lumens/W efficacy, says the company. The bulb promises “considerable light output” for residential and commercial applications, such as decorative pendants, chandeliers, vanity lights and various indoor fixtures. This GU24 contains Chip on Board (COB) LED technology, which means high heat conductivity and low thermal resistance for improved heat management, boasts American. The multi-directional diffuser emits a beam spread over 180º for even illumination without visibly unattractive LED hot spots, adds the company.
