Verbatim lamp named Which? magazine's ‘best buy'

4 September 2013 11.30 BST

(UK) - Verbatim products among most reliable and highest performing light bulbs, according to UK’s largest survey of retrofit light sources.

The Which? 2013 Light Bulb Survey is the most in-depth survey of its kind in the UK, testing brightness, energy efficiency and durability. The survey included compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), halogens and LED lamps.

55 light bulbs widely available to British customers were tested. LEDs consistently out-performed other types of bulb in the latest tests, due to their instant brightness, durability and impressive energy efficiency.

Verbatim’s 10W Classic A LED scored 91%. With actual brightness of 906 lumens from a claimed performance of 820 lumens, the product was described as a “good all round performer”.
The Which? team commented: “One of the brightest LEDs on the market, this Verbatim bulb is actually brighter than it says on the box. Scoring top marks for efficiency and durability, it has a claimed life expectancy of 30,000 hours – that’s around 30 years if used for a couple of hours a day.”
Additionally, Verbatim’s 3.8W Candlelight Classic B and 8.5W Classic A gained excellent rankings, each with a score of 84%.

“Being endorsed after such rigorous, independent testing illustrates our commitment to creating energy-saving lighting by encouraging consumers to fully embrace LED technology,” commented Jeanine Chrobak, business development manager at LED EUMEA, Verbatim.
