SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SWITCH® Lighting, maker of best-in-class LED light bulbs, today announced the nationwide availability of the award-winning SWITCH infinia™, the top-performing LED bulb in the general use category for residential and commercial applications. The infinia is currently available in both 40 watt and 60 watt-equivalents, with retail pricing for the 60We as low as $11.99. Like the original family of SWITCH LED bulbs, the infinia has a lifetime warranty. The bulbs can be found at commercial distributors, lighting showrooms, and numerous retailers, including nearly 500 Batteries Plus Bulbs stores nationwide. The SWITCH infinia is ENERGY STAR® certified, which could reduce prices to as low as $3.99 or less in areas with utility rebates. The newest bulb from SWITCH is the best performing, lowest priced 60W equivalent LED bulb and carries both ENERGY STAR certification and a UL rating for enclosed fixtures.
“The infinia is the latest result of SWITCH’s award-winning technology - a new, affordable, replacement LED bulb that is perfect for everyday use,” said EC Sykes, chief executive officer, SWITCH Lighting. “With infinia, you will never compromise on light performance or lifespan, no matter what type of application you have. Unlike other LED bulbs in this category, you do not have to worry about the type of fixture, the location, or the orientation. It is the best performing LED light bulb at the lowest price. And as you would expect from SWITCH, it’s the most beautiful bulb on the market.”
The infinia can be used in any fixture (UL rated for enclosed fixtures), any orientation, and both indoors and out. The bulb provides the same light distribution and quality as an incandescent bulb, while using up to 85 percent less energy, offers a wide range of dimmability, and the technology extends the lifetime.
SWITCH infinia is also now backed with a lifetime residential and 3-year commercial warranty. Utility rebates will be available in many markets. To find your utility rebate, click here: http://www.switchlightingco.com/rebate.html.
