Dimmable Liquid Cooled LED Candle
NEW - fully dimmable using existing systems, these contemporary LED lamps really break the mould with creative thinking! Instead of using a metal heat sink to control the heat, we use a liquid. Why not watch the video on YouTube here

HydraLux-4 is First Liquid Cooled LED Lightbulb - Tom's Hardware
The Eternaleds HydraLux-4 comes in two colors, Warm White and Daylight White, and can be ordered directly from Eternaleds.com at a list price of $34.99. It's an expensive investment, but it's rated for 35,000 hours; and at 8 hours a day, the HydraLux-4 costs around $1.75 per year to run, saving an average of $157.00 over the lifetime of the bulb in electricity and bulb replacement costs.
Eternaleds plans to announce 8W, 12W and 16W versions of the HydraLux by the end of 2009.
Interesting. I wonder what the liquid is. Certainly not water since a phase transition would be catastrophic. Toxicity? My other concern is that the clear liquid may yellow over time.

Not to worry, if you drop/break it - the liquid inside is harmless paraffin oil that has been tested and certified safe to UL and ROHS standards.

The HydraLux-4 comes in 2 colors:
Warm White - Gives soft room filling light and ambiance
Daylight White - Great for task lighting and promoting alertness.
I don't trust these fanciful descriptions or images. Why can't they just give us the color temperature?
This would be good fodder for the LED lighting thread.
The world loves to be deceived.

It's in this thread because there was specifically a statement about dimmable LEDs.
"Not to worry, if you drop/break it - the liquid inside is harmless paraffin oil that has been tested and certified safe to UL and ROHS standards."
Ok, so then it's a Lava Lamp!
Not to derail the great thread about LEDs, but getting back to energy prices...
Energy prices are down because industrial use is way way down, residential use is pretty flat. Its hard to infer residential conservation from the numbers. The best explanation for industrial use being down is the recession.
In the trailing 9 months of data residential electricity use is down 1% and commercial electricity use is down 2% and industrial electricity use is down 13%
