Panasonic LED Bulb Launch & Miss Universe Malaysia 2013 Pool Party

[Event]

Went over to the Le Meridien Hotel KL Sentral on 29 November 2012 with MHB’s Chammaine Tan for the launch of Panasonic’s LED light bulbs. Now LED light bulbs are not something very new and have been around in our market for a while now. The only thing stopping the masses from acquiring them is the price. However Panasonic was about to address that issue and make LED lighting technology affordable to more consumers and at the same time being long lasting, energy saving and environmentally friendly

The were light refreshments served before the official launch and I must say that the choice of venue was very good as the Le Meridien Hotel had coffee and snack bars outside each of their conference rooms. There was the usual coffee but served from a coffee machine but the impressive bit was large fridges stocked up with fruit juices and even yoghurt!

Anyway back to the launch.

Panasonic LED bulbs are developed with two (2) key LED technologies, “Optical Design technology” and “High Heat Dissipation technology”. Optical technology spreads light using a combination of LED packages in a circular pattern inside a large globe and a double reflector structure. Whereas, the “high heat dissipation technology is a circuit arranged above the LED packages in order for the circuit parts to be away from the body where the heat converges.

Err…what does that mean? It means the bulbs are cooler and you won’t burn yourself as you would with an incandescent bulb that has been turned on for a while.

LED technology is also extremely energy efficient and can save approximately 80% energy as compared to incandescent light bulb and has a lifespan of 40 years (based on 2.7 times usage a day), which is approximately 40 times longer than a traditional light bulb.

Imagine not having to change any lightbulbs for 40 years!!!

It is also eco friendly and boasts zero mercury (compact flourescent bulbs contain mercury which is poisonous to the human body). Panasonic claims that their innovative range of LED bulbs are among the industries most energy-efficient, lightest and smallest.

“We are seeing increased demand for LED lamps in Malaysia due to government new policies of banning incandescent light bulbs and consumers are also becoming more environmentally conscious. Therefore consumers gain cost savings while causing less impact on the environment with our lighting choices.” said Jeff Lee, Managing Director of Panasonic Malaysia.

Capsule type

Capsule type

Capsule type provides top class brightness with 160° beam angle of wide coverage light distribution. Reflector type offers focus lighting with focus beam angle of 120 degrees, suitable for spot lighting. Both types of bulbs are covered by cut glare glass so that consumers can enjoy more soft and gentle light.

Candle type

Candle type

The candle type LED bulb equipped with 4W light brightness is equivalent to a 15W traditional candle lamp. The high efficiency technology realizes the ultra long life span, up to 15 000 hours.

Halogen type

Halogen type

New series Halogen LED bulb provides a variety of lighting options for consumers and the new range comes with voltages of 4W, 6W and 7W, available in two (2) warm colour choices.

Clear glass type - looks like a traditional bulb but with terrific energy savings and lasts 40 times as long!

The gold winning LED modern classic type provides sparkling light, just like a clear incandescent light bulb. Using Panasonic’s proprietary light emission and diffusion technologies, modern classic type LED light bulb has achieved virtually the same size, shape, light source position, light colour, brightness and light distribution as incandescent light bulbs but uses less energy and lasts longer!

The modern classic type LED bulb obtained Gold awards at the 2012 Good Design Awards in Japan and at the 2012 iF Product Design award in Germany, and also winning gold awards at 3 competitive design contests in the U.S., Germany and Japan. The international acclaim received by the bulb also includes the 2012 universal design award in Germany and the 2012 red dot design award also in Germany.

Cool designs - who says study lamps must be boring?

Cool designs – who says study/ table lamps must be boring? And no in case you were wondering, the pretty model does not come with the lamp.

The Panasonic LED table lamp is gentler and easier on the eyes to cater for the long periods of reading or working on the computer.

The new LED table lamps are covered with a special anti-glare panel. The anti-glare panel distributes the light efficiently and reduces glare. The Panasonic LED lamp is less harsh on the eyes and produces UV-free and flicker free light.

The great thing about LED is that the bulbs are not scorching hot.

So yes although the initial cost of a LED bulb (starting from around RM70.00) might seem a little high, the cost savings from a lower electricity bill and not having to replace the bulb for many years more than makes up for it and makes it more cost-efficient in the long run. Guess it’s time to change the light bulbs in my house to the new LED ones when they burn out. It just makes sense to do so…
