Liquid cooled LED lights

Jetson Greene

Switch Lighting, creator of the only LED that uses liquid cooling technology, is on the cusp of a breakout year in 2012. The Switch bulb creates the same warm color of an incandescent, yet it’s made with reclaimable or recyclable materials using the Cradle to Cradle methodology. Inside the bulb is a liquid thermal cooling solution that helps cool the LEDs from all sides, producing more light from less LEDs. In fact, a Switch bulb lasts about 25 times longer and uses 80% less energy than an incandescent.

The key point here, along with the huge savings in electricity, is that this LED produces light comparable in quality to an incandescent. That’s important.


  1. The incandescent quality might allow us to sneak them past the conservative gatekeepers, who demonize green ideas as liberal and hence anathema. I can’t believe Congress replaced all the fluorescent bulbs with incandescents just to posture for the teabaggers(well, yes I can, with this bunch). Just don’t let them know that they save energy.

  2. LEDs generally aren’t great for this purpose. You will want to go with a low pressure mercury arc lamp or a specialized tanning UV florescent lamp (don’t use UV/blacklight lamps, they are not low enough wavelength and don’t use uncoated/germicidal, they are extremely harmful and emit UVC radiation). LED bulb
