Have You Tried... Rechargeable Light Bulbs?

With increasing demand for affordable, earth-friendly lighting solutions, retailers have been stocking their shelves with a multitude of impressive, energy-efficient light bulbs.

None are as unique as the Magic Bulb, the world's first and only rechargeable light bulb. Developed in Norway, this is the only light bulb that stays illuminated for hours, even without

This Magic Bulb has a build-in lithium battery and it can act as a flashlight with 3 hours of additional portable light, which makes it exceptionally useful during blackouts and emergencies.

The award-winning, patented LED light bulb is now being marketed in the U.S. by LED International.US, a division of the Norway-based LED Electronics International AS that developed MagicBulb. "MagicBulb is extremely green, pays for itself many times over, and can be used in the event of a power outage, when it instantly turns into an emergency, portable light and operates as such for hours," says LED International marketing director Ron Yiu.

Avaiable as an energy saving replacement for 40-50 watt bulbs, the Magic Bulb will ast up to five times longer (20,000 - 50,000 hours) than conventional bulbs. Its shock proof bulb will continue working even after a shock to the bulb.

Magic Bulb currently retails at $25-$60.
