The Finally Light Bulb in an induction-powered LED alternative that would've made Tesla proud. Click through to see how it works.
The Finally Light Bulb uses electromagnetism to "induce" an electric field within the bulb. This electric field interacts with various gases, which in turn will glow and emit light.
Those gases include a trace amount of mercury, same as CFL bulbs. If you break one like we accidentally did, you'll need to be somewhat careful cleaning it up.
Like an incandescent, the Finally Light Bulb offers light quality that's complementary to skin tones of all shades.
Graph out its light output across the visible light spectrum, and the Finally Light Bulb most closely resembles a CFL.
The Finally Light Bulb isn't dimmable. Try and dim it on a dimmer switch anyway, and it'll flicker badly.
Overall, the Finally Light Bulb offers below-average color-rendering capabilities.
The Finally Light Bulb sells online for $10, plus shipping. Is it worth the premium? Check out our review for the verdict.
