Quantum Light Lamp Is a Warmer LED, but Doesn’t Come Cheap

Just the other day I was moaning about the sorry state of consumer LED bulbs, and now Nexxus Lighting has released high-end LED unit that shines a more natural, warmer light than others available. Best of all–from a geeky point of view–it uses quantum technology!

All that high tech comes at a cost, though. When it’s released the Quantum Light Lamp, coming with standard Edison fitting, will roar in at a $100 price point–ten times more than a CFL and a hundred times more expensive than an old, if inefficient, incandescent bulb.

Even better the units will come in a range of color-temperatures from ultra-white to warm white, so they’ll find applications in more places. Osram also points out that the unit’s small size is handy for lighting designers who want to optimize the form of lighting products–that should improve how the LED light gets spread around.
