Currently the Safari features a true AC bulb in an actinic blue screw in base. Bulb has won a National Innovative Award for being true AC, meaning no need for a ac/dc converter: meaning less heat extending the bulb life, no transformer (most LEDs last as long as they claim, but the components ie transformer/driver parts fail much quicker than the LED), and since there's no wasteful wattage going through various ac/dc components, more total output of the 4 watts. Hence it winning such an award!
We are in the process of developing a 8,000k daylight bulb; 4w & 10w. I'd like to hear your thoughts on how attractive this setup looks.
