Good News/Bad News

Good news. An LED that can replace the omnipresent 100W incandescent bulb has hit the market. Bad news. It costs $95 bucks. recently posted an article on Earthtech Products’ 13W LED, designed to replace 100W incandescents and last more than 50,000 hours. But at this price, it will be tough to compete with the conventional incandescents. Lowe’s is advertising an eight-pack of 100W incandescents for $1.98 (about 25 cents a bulb). At least the LED is on sale – the regular price shown on Earthtech Products’ website is $109.
