The new product has a rugged design, a limited impact upon the environment, and uses 80 percent less energy than comparable incandescent bulbs, among other beneficial traits.

The Durabulb comes in dimmable and non-dimmable 60 watt equivalent options and a three-year warranty.

With normal use, this bulb will last up to 10,000 hours—or about ten times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.

“The Durabulb is just one in a series of differentiated, forward-looking new products that Lighting Science is introducing this year as we re-emerge as a leader in the rapidly commoditising LED lighting marketplace,” said Pete Rumsey, Executive Vice President of Business Development for Lighting Science.

“We’re not sure if it’s the toughest bulb on the block, but we had a lot of fun putting the Durabulb to the test, including dropping it from an eight story building and hitting it with a tennis racket. We even mailed it—unpackaged, with nothing but a label on it through the US postal system—and it still worked.”
