After attending the National Hardware Show and seeing so many new products either using or mentioning LED lighting, we found this new product from GE rather unique. GE collaborated with creator of LED cooling technologies, Nuventix, to create a new 27-watt Energy Smart, self-cooling LED light bulb.
The light is said to offer increased energy efficiency by incorporating airstream jet technology to cool down the LEDs themselves.
“The 27-watt ‘Energy Smart’ LED light bulb will be able to produce the amount of light equivalent to a 100-watt incandescent bulb—1,600 lumens of soft-white light—and is expected to last for about 25,000 hours (22.8 years with average use).
The bulb has a standard ‘A-19’ bulb shape; and incorporates an airstream jet technology, miniature synthetic jet ‘synjet’, to ‘push’ hot air away from the LED and keep the bulb cool—as LED lights are more sensitive to heat.”

The GE 27-watt Energy Smart, self-cooling light bulb is expected to be in stores in the US and Canada by the first-half of 2013. You can check out the full article here.
