SWITCH Lighting(TM) Chooses Batteries Plus(R) as Retail Partner for Award-Winning, Highly Anticipated LED Light Bulb
St. Louis, MO -- In a move that marks a major milestone in
the nation's transition to energy-efficient lighting, SWITCH Lighting(TM), the maker of the first true LED replacement for the incandescent light bulb, announced that its award-winning, highly-anticipated LED light bulbs are now
available at Batteries Plus stores in St. Louis.
Batteries Plus is carrying the SWITCH 60- and 75-watt-equivalent A-type LED bulbs. SWITCH Lighting executives say they chose Batteries Plus, the nation's largest and
fastest-growing battery and light bulb franchise, as a national retail partner for mainstream market distribution because of its highly-trained store owners and staff who can best educate customers on all aspects of the light bulb.
"We pride ourselves on selling products that are on the forefront of technology and those that can help our customers save money" said Steve Donnell, local Batteries Plus franchise owner. "Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are considered the best energy-saving lighting option, and SWITCH LED light bulbs are an exact replacement for old incandescent light bulbs. There's no compromise - consumers can use them in any orientation - fully enclosed and even recessed - anywhere, to provide light indoors and outdoors. SWITCH LED light bulbs are also compatible with most standard dimmers," said Donnell.
SWITCH LED bulbs provide the same warm, familiar glow of an incandescent light bulb with the same light output while using up to 80% less energy. They fit into standard
light sockets, are dimmable, and can be used in the same manner as any incandescent or compact fluorescent light bulb - in any orientation, any fixture and any location. SWITCH bulbs pose no environmental hazards and have no toxic ingredients (unlike the mercury found in CFLs). The company's proprietary LQD Cooling System offers the best thermal management in the industry, using an innovative blend of proprietary technologies - a coolant made of
liquid-silicone and a patented, highly reliable, and efficient driver - and overall electronic design.
SWITCH's bulbs last up to 25 times longer than an
incandescent light bulb - up to 25,000 hours - and the SWITCH60, for example, saves consumers approximately $130 on an energy bill over the light bulb's lifetime depending on usage.
They've been widely praised for their sleek industrial
design and have even been featured as a work of art in several art galleries. In addition, the SWITCH75 was a Consumer Electronics Show 2012 Innovations Honoree, was named by TIME Magazine as one of the 50 Best Inventions of 2011 and also received a silver rating in the prestigious Edison 2012 Awards.
