Energy Efficient, Long-Lasting Graphene LED Bulb Hits the Market

Energy Efficient, Long-Lasting Graphene LED Bulb Hits the Market

The very first product made of graphene to hit the market is a highly efficient, energy saving and long lasting LED light bulb. The long wait for a viable product made of the ultra-strong, super-thin carbon nanosheet- graphene , is finally over. Scientists from University of Manchester, UK, the birthplace of the wonder material, designed a light bulb , which has a filament-shaped LED , covered in graphene . The product was developed by a company called Graphene Lighting, with a deputy director the vice-chancellor at the University, Prof. Colin Bailey. According to the developers, the use of graphene reduces the energy consumption of the bulb by 10%, and thanks to the incredible conductivity of the material, the LED bulb can last much longer than its conventional competitors. The product is expected to hit the UK market later on this year, and it will sell at a price of £15...
