Ge LED light bulb

Here’s a look at GE’s LED light bulbs, which should be hitting stores sometime in the next year. What makes them special?

They also distribute the light evenly, in all directions, rather than focused on one area. Most of all, they are super-efficient. The nine watt bulbs give off the same amount of light as a 40 watt incandescent bulb, so you are saving some serious power, and only replacing them two or three times in a lifetime. The downside?
