5 Watt Dimmable LED E26 Zig Zag Tube Bulb 290mm. This new form LED (Light-emitting diode) with modern high efficiency LED technology A warm color temp of 2200K ensures a vintage carbon filament type color. This style bulb is a filament style LED and uses the latest technology. This bulb contains 6 pcs of 4 cm long filaments. They are arranged in a zig zag fashion so as to look more like a spiral type design.
To make a longer life we drop the output to around 1 Watt per filament. We include IC control as protection from Hi/Low Voltage spikes commonly experienced. We also maintain a high Color Rendition Index.
The shaped glass is exactly the same a traditional small tube and fits regular light fittings with good representation of colors. Therefore the bulb is fantastic for atmospheric lighting, in a multi-bulb pendant light, as well as discreet lighting.
Fits all E26 light fittings including our E26 Sockets
Unlike other types of lights, LED’s do not emit UV rays making them safer for long term exposure to people and less attractive to insects.
- Incandescent & halogen lights waste more than 80% of the energy used by generating excess heat.
- LED’s generate far less heat which is why they are so efficient.
- Less heat also means less risk of fire due to overheating of ceiling insulation material.
- LED Lights use 80% less power than conventional incandescent or halogen lights and 50% less than compact florescent.
- The power saving from an LED light will usually pay for itself in less than 2 years.
