Glimpse LED Releases New Lighting Alternative

Lighting manufacturer Lighting Science Group today unveiled a new LED light for ceilings.

The 15-watt Glimpse LED light is intended to replace 65-watt BR30 lights, and can be retrofit into most preexisting 5- to 6-inch recessed lighting cans or a J-Box. The light is dimmable down to 5 percent lighting capacity, according to the company.

The Energy Star-qualifying bulb is also "fully recyclable" and free of toxic chemicals, according to Lighting Science Group. Like almost all LEDs, it is also free of mercury.

The Glimpse LED is currently available via for $37. For a full list of specs, including the 11 can brands and five dimmer brands the bulb is compatible with, see the PDF the company released here.

The light, which has a 50,000-hour life, will be available in a 700-lumen version offering a color temperature of 2,700 Kelvin (warm yellow), a 750-lumen version in 3000 Kelvin (bright yellow), and a 775-lumen version in 4,000 Kelvin (white). The company released a video (shown below) showcasing the Glimpse LED light in each color.

The light will come with a five-year warranty.

The company made news in late August when it introduced its $15 LED bulb, which is equivalent to a 60-watt incandescent. That bulb was introduced at a significant price difference from competing LED bulbs, which were initially offered in the $30-$40 price range.
