According to the press release by Philips, the new clear 40 Watt equivalent LED bulb brings back the shape and instant warm light of a traditional light bulb.

The innovative lens delivers a filament-like, sparkling effect while emmiting light in all directions. Further, the traditional shape and quality light make the bulb perfect for the living room and all other places where light does matter.

The new dimmable clear LED bulb allows people to hold onto to what they love keeping the original beauty and warmth of the incandescent and adding quite a lot in terms of quality, life span and energy saving.

“With our L-prize LED bulb we showed that we could match the quality of incandescent light. With our clear LED bulb we’ve combined the aesthetic beauty and shape of the traditional incandescent with the benefits of LED,” says René van Schooten, CEO Light Sources & Electronics for Philips Lighting.

“Using our innovations in LED the bulb is highly energy efficient, saving up to EUR 10 per bulb per year compared to traditional bulbs.”

The A60-shaped bulb offers up to 25.000 hours of high-quality light and will be available from July 2014 for RSP of EUR 8.99.

Some of the other features of the Philips clear LED bulb include colour temperature of 2700K (warm white light); 470 lumen (equivalent to 40W) and 85% energy efficiency (6W input wattage: 78 lumen per watt ratio).
