Compare Phillips' new AmbientLED Bulb to CFLs


Just read on Inhabitat about the new Phillips AmbientLED light bulbs. They last way longer than CFLs, and with no mercury to worry about! Excellent!

I wanted to compare the energy and lifespan specs on The AmbientLED and an equivalent CFL bulb:

Light output: 900 Lumens
Energy used: 14 watts
Life hours: 10,000 hours

Light output: 800 Lumens
Energy used: 12 W (consumes a little less energy)
Average Life hours: 25000 hours (lasts way longer)

See for yourself:
