Having to constantly replace light bulbs in your house is not only a pain in the you know what, it’s a constant reminder of the money you’re literally burning away day in and day out. Compact fluorescents have come and alleviated some of the pain of illuminating our man-made structures yet there is still progress to be had. Enter the realm of Panasonic land where we measure bulb life in decades — not hours. Initial models of said bulb will shine with roughly the same output as your old and trusted 60 watt incandescent. So it isn’t the brightest, but you’ll save a ton of money. Also to consider is price. Because of the “newness” factor, expect to pay around $40/bulb…in Japan…come October. Then again, costing a whopping $2/year in energy costs and a lifetime of 19 years will easily sell itself. Order me a case…
