    LEDtronics New Filament-Style LED Bulbs Offer Vintage Look While Providing Huge Energy Savings

  • Dec 13, 2016

    LEDtronics announces its new UL-listed filament-style LED bulbs — a product line that recreates the attractive filament look while providing energy-saving, clean lighting for various applications. Gone are the days of inefficient old bulbs; the FIL series is a higher-efficacy, lower-power lighting option for creating a vintage lighting experience.

    The LEDtronics FIL series filament-style bulbs are available in a wide variety of types: chandelier, standard A19, globe, décor and tube bulbs, and are ideal for omni-directional lighting projects, being both decorative pieces and functional tools.

    By directly replacing incandescent lights with these filament-style LED bulbs, users can achieve up to 90% energy savings. The chandelier bulbs only consume 2 to 6 watts, replacing 25 to 60 watt incandescent; the standard A19 bulbs only consume 2 to 10 watts, replacing 15 to 100 watt incandescent; the globe bulbs only consume 6 watts, replacing a 60-watt incandescent; the décor bulbs only consume 2 watts, replacing a 20-watt, while the tube bulbs only consume 3 to 6 watts, replacing a 25 to 50 watt incandescent.

    Since the LEDtronics FIL series of UL-listed, filament-style LED bulbs has such a wide selection, they are a perfect solution in most applications looking for a retro look while conserving energy — architectural lighting, accent lighting, restaurants and hotels, displays, marquees and signage, galleries, museums, table and ceiling lamps, string lighting for parties and events, porch lights, chandeliers, task and reading lights, vanity-mirror makeup lights, wall sconces, picture lights, strip mall perimeter lighting, and many more.

    To recreate the classic filament-style look, the FIL series of LED bulbs comes in color temperatures of 2200K and 2700K, with a voltage input of 120 VAC, and a wide operating temperature range of ~-40°C to ~+50°C. Being solid-state, the products are resistant to high shock, impact and vibration, unlike incandescent bulbs. They emit virtually no ultraviolet or infrared radiation, produce no RF interference, and are RoHS compliant, thus completely environment-friendly.

    Custom options for qualified volume orders are available, including other color temperatures (1800K, 2200K, 4000K, 6000K), voltages (230-240VAC), lenses (amber-tinted or milky white lens), and other base options.

    The brand new, UL-listed FIL series of filament-style LED bulbs come with a 3-year unconditional LEDtronics U.S. factory warranty! Best of all, they are more affordable and energy-efficient than ever before! The series is available through LEDtronics distributors, and quantity discounts are available.
