Slim profile

The SlimStyle features a flattened down design that distributes the diodes along the perimeter of the bulb. This helps it manage heat more effectively, and cost less to manufacturer.

Skinny siblings

The design is unchanged from the original bulb, save for the fact that the new version is slightly larger. Both versions weigh less than 3 ounces.

Light specs

The new SlimStyle puts out 1100 lumens from 13 watts, which is a noticeable step up from the 800 lumens that you get with the original SlimStyle.

Like the original, you might notice slight dim spots to each side of the bulb.

Dim spots accented

The dim spots are easier to see when we adjust the brightness of the shot to accent them.

Lamp logic

Of course, you could always just rotate the bulb to put them out of sight.
