Yes, you read the heading right. And yes, the new EverLEDs from Panasonic will glow uptil 19 years considering you use it around five and half hours a day. That’s 40 times longer than any incandescent bulb. The best part…these bulbs actually consume only one-eighth the power of regular incandescents. Available in Japan around October 21.
Although the pricing has not yet been confirmed by Panasonic, it is estimated to be around $40. CNET says, “a 60-watt-equivalent LED bulb would cost only 300 yen (about $3) a year instead of 2,380 yen ($25.80)–a significant savings over a lifetime.”
