stop unnecessary waste from CFLs: replace the glass tube, keep the precious electronics

Smart Lite CFL saves the electronics ballast from landfills

Unnecessary waste is a big problem of today’s world. We throw away too much of everything. But when you advertise something as greener, like CFL bulbs, and build it so that that complicated circuitry that makes it expensive gets in the landfields together with the damaged illuminating mixture in the glass tube is just stupid. Unless LED bulbs won’t come down to reasonable prices 3E Techonologies has come up with the solution: Smart Lite CFL, a two piece CFL bulb which allows the glass tube to be removed from the ballast and replaced with a simple ‘insert and twist’ operation.

The Smart Lite CFL even outperforms usual CFLs at illuminating efficiency, with a great 65 lumens per watt, compared to about 40 lumens per watt -that’s what the manufacturer claims anyway.

This way the costs of illuminating your homes will go further down as you’ll only need to replace the electronic ballast once every 5 bulbs have burned, so its expected lifetime is about 40000 hours (a CFL bulb life expectancy is 8000 hours).
