Lamps made using ultra conductive graphene-coated LED filaments should last longer than conventional LED bulbs and be still more energy efficient into the bargain. And they could go on sale at a competitive price later this year.
This highly innovative design of lamp, from Canadian-financed UK startup firm Graphene Lighting, 'is expected to perform significantly better and last longer than conventional LED bulbs,' according to a press release from the University of Manchester where it is being developed.
This is progress indeed, relating the new lamp to ‘conventional LEDs’, bearing in mind that we’ve only just got used to LEDs themselves being the new ‘wonder lighting’.
