Instantly bright halogen capsule sits inside an energy-saving and long-lasting compact fluorescent swirl that’s contained in an incandescent-shaped glass bulb.
“It looks like an incandescent in size and shape but it’s really three bulbs in one,” observes Kristin Gibbs, general manager of consumer marketing, GE Lighting.
“The instant brightness factor makes our new hybrid halogen-CFL more versatile than other CFLs.
It’s an optimal choice for use in hallways, stairways, kitchens, bathrooms and anywhere immediate brightness is essential. Simply flip that light switch and it’s at your service—immediately.”
These new GE CFLs offer eight times the life of incandescent bulbs (8,000 hours vs. 1,000 hours). The new products — 15- and 20-watt GE Energy Smart® Soft White (2700 Kelvin) and Reveal® (2500 Kelvin) CFLs with exceptionally low levels of mercury that can replace standard 60- and 75-watt incandescent bulbs or other CFLs that don’t offer a satisfactory quality of light or instant brightness.
