You may have noticed this new acronym popping up on some of our products. RoHS stands for Restrictions on Hazardous Substances, and it's a directive that could have a huge impact on the production and disposal of consumer electronics. First adopted in Europe in 2006 (and later adopted in California in 2007), RoHS restricts the use of six dangerous substances in lots of common electronics. According to the official RoHS compliance Web site (www.rohs.eu), the RoHS symbol indicates that "new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain any of the six banned substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), in quantities exceeding maximum concentration values."
While some military and medical equipment is exempt from RoHS compliance, the electronics governed by the standard are among the most common you'll find in your home, from radios to MP3 players to cell phones and (increasingly) computers. In practical terms, the standard protects factory workers at the production level, sharply reducing their exposure to hazardous substances. The standard also has a profound impact on the disposal and recycling of electronics, in that disposed substances will no longer have at least six of the most hazardous chemicals formerly found in electronics, and recycled electronics will not expose workers to toxics as they harvest components.
The GeoBulb-3 is now brighter and uses less energy than the GeoBulb-2
The GeoBulb-3 warm white LED light bulb uses 7 Watts of power to put out about as much light as a 50-Watt incandescent light bulb. You can use it in most places where you currently use an indoor, standard, screw-in 60-Watt bulb. You can install a GeoBulb to bring energy efficient lighting to a foyer, open ceiling cans or track lighting. It is still initially more costly than a compact fluorescent but the cost over the life of the bulb is getting close to the cost of using a compact fluorescent in some cases. A GeoBulb cost about 2 cents a day for 24 hours a day compared to 17 cents a day for incandescent. A few examples of best places to use the GeoBulb are in high ceilings, where it is unsafe, costly and time consuming to change a light. The GeoBulb gives off most of its light evenly from the top of the bulb. You get your best return when you replace a bulb that is "on" most of the time.
The GeoBulb gives off very little heat and turns on instantly at full brightness. There is no warm-up period like compact fluorescents. Once you install a GeoBulb, you don't have to think about changing it for up to five years even if used continuously. Unlike CFL's, the GeoBulb puts out a consistent color of light for the life of the bulb. It has no mercury, can be used in colder temperatures, and is built for maximum longevity.
The GeoBulb is available in two color temperatures: Warm White and Soft White (we are sorry, the Cool White is no longer available), and is backed by a five-year limited warranty. The room temperature must not exceed 95°F for the warranty to be valid. In addition, the GeoBulb must be used in an open fixture for ventilation.
Weight: 4.8 oz. Size: 4.7" H x 2.25" Dia.
Note: The GeoBulb-3 is non-dimmable. Using this light bulb with a dimmer switch may damage the bulb. It must be used in a room temperature of less than 95°F and in an open ventilated fixture or it will void the warranty.
