As scientists launch a revolutionary new light bulb, expected to last up to 60 years, Journalist Tina Clough spoke to BLT Direct, the leading online providers of energy saving light bulbs, low energy light bulbs and light fittings, to find out what shape this new light bulb will take.

Utilizing cheap LEDs, which emit a huge amount of light but only use a small amount of electricity, the new bulbs developed by Cambridge University are expected to last for up to 60 years and are up to 12 times more efficient than the traditional tungsten style bulb, favoured by many British households.
A Spokesman from BLT Direct, said, The new light bulbs sound great, especially because they will prove to be not only much more efficient but cost effective too. Light bulbs are always evolving and it was on a matter of time before there was another fantastic breakthrough.
