Switch Lighting is a new company developing an LED bulb in the traditional A19 shape. It says the bulb will have even light dispersal and last 18 years if used three hours a day. As the photo shows, the LED light sources are placed near the outside of the bulb rather than the base. The design also allows for natural cooling, helping long life. The company is planning to release a 40-watt, 60-watt, and 75-watt equivalent later this year with prices starting at less than $20. Its brightest will give off 1,150 lumens and consume 16 watts.
