Who Says You Can't Reinvent the Light Bulb?

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



When you turn on a light, you want light!! Right? Not the hazy, darkish light that creates big shadows and leaves it hard to read, take pictures, or generally just see what you are doing. I know a lot of people love the energy efficient swirly light bulbs, but something about a bulb with a million warnings makes me nervous. And they just don't produce the nice, bright light I want from my light source. Today I received two bulbs from Finally Light Bulb, and in a word, they are awesome.

What is Finally Light Bulb? I'm glad you asked. Finally Light Bulb is a company that was faced with the task of trying to shoehorn LED and CFL technology into the familiar Incandescent shape we have known and loved. Their efforts were successful and the end result was an Acandescence light reminiscent of the light produced with the incandescent bulb from my youth. What does that mean? It means a nice bright light, not an "off" or matted shade, that is also energy-efficient (and that's totally a win-win). The revolutionary technology used to design these bulbs was created for one purpose: to create that wonderful light you got from an incandescent bulb, but to do so without the waste of energy those produced.

Thanks to Finally Bulb, there is no longer the need to sacrifice light quality for efficiency. The bulb uses 75% less energy and lasts up to 15 times longer than a standard incandescent, all for under $10.

Finally Bulb is a-okay in my book, let me tell you, and I love their motto:

-We didn't reinvent the light bulb. We just made it a whole lot better.

You can learn more about the company by visiting the website. You can also follow along on Facebook and/or Twitter.

I too have missed the old bulb. Having the new technology with the old design rocks.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Let there be light!

That is great they got the shape and still make it last a long time

15 times longer would be awesome. I feel like bulbs are always blowing around my house.

Stephanie said...

Awesome! I love to hear about companies that improve products and make them better to use and for our world. Thanks for sharing about Finally Light Bulb!

Never heard of this company before and to be honest I use those swirly energy efficient bulbs throughout the house. Will have to check this one out some more.

Elephant's Child said...

What a great idea. I hope they get the success they deserve.

Dogvills said...

Finally, bulbs that are energy efficient and last longer. I will check this out.

Beeb said...

Oh, I so need to get this for my dad! He hates how CFL bulbs look and was hoarding the "Old" kind of lightbulbs, hahaha!

Scott said...

We just started replacing a bunch of ours with LED. Will definitely have to price-compare these!

MomMaven said...

Thanks for the info! I need to keep my eyes out for these bulbs.

Pam said...

I love the value of this light bulb! I need to pick some of these up. I love their slogan.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

Oh this sounds awesome - I find the old style energy bulbs are so dim! I need to look into these. x

Theresa Mahoney said...

I love that they went back to the old design. Those twirly bulbs really irritate me for some reason!

Heather Lawrence said...

So it wasn't just Canada that punted the old light bulbs? I am not a big fan of the swirly ones either. They are Super dangerous if they break and with this many kids I don't want to deal with anymore issues than I need to. I wonder if we can purchase these bulbs in Canada?

Cat said...

My husband will be happy about this. The isn't a fan of the new light bulbs. Catherine S.

Liz Mays said...

Wow, they do sound great. I'd love trying some of these out in the hallways!

Karissa @WOB said...

This is so efficient! I love making the switch to products like this - better for the environment and my pocketbook!

Kelly Hutchinson said...

This is not a brand I am familiar with. It sounds like an energy efficient bulb I need in my house.

Liz Mays said...

I know right! I'd like not having to worry about them for a while.

Amber N said...

To this day I am still so amazed with a light bulb.

Ann B said...

I would love to switch to LED lights. I will have to pick some up and start switching my bulbs over.

Paula Schuck said...

When i turn on a light i want it to be bright. I will have to pick up some LED lights and give them a try.

Mama to 5 said...

Wow this sounds great! I would like to have this in the area we homeschool it would be helpful!

Mama to 5 said...

I agree, this sounds more energy efficient and cost savings too!

Six Time Mommy TEST said...

This is fabulous. We've switched to all LED lights in our house... I always find them to be a little to low for my liking though, so I should try to check these out! - Jeanine

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

I like the idea of having a light bulb like this one. I am not very happy with the lighting in our home and this probably would help.

Jessica said...

Yes! I have missed the kind of light from incandescent bulbs! While we replaced our bulbs with a more efficient LED version, I don't like the type of light it gives off...this is so welcome!

Babita said...

We recently installed some recessed lights and the electrician suggest fitting them with energy efficient bulbs. I am curious to see if I can use these bulbs.

RANE said...

I'm all for LED Bulbs .. they are more on the expensive side but they make the place look so much lighter and brighter. I'm all for a good LED Bulb

Annemarie LeBlanc said...

We use CFLs in our house. I will check out this brand of light bulb. I have not tried an LED light bulb yet, but if this would last 15 times longer than an incandescent bulb, then I am all for it.

Lisa Rios said...

This is awesome. Re-inventing the old bulb with latest technology is really a great idea to go for. Sounds like an amazing energy efficient bulb which is worth for every home.

Melissa Tiffany said...

I am soooo glad that lightbulbs have changed since when I was little! I want my purchases to last longer than just a few months! I will have to check these out!

Becca Wilson said...

This is great! Lightbulbs don't seem like something to fret about but the different types put off different light. I really don't like the newer ones as much and so just re-inventing the older a little sounds awesome.

Great motto!
