Welcome to the lightbulbmoment online store, located in Cape Town, South Africa.

Our aim is to help you save on electricity without altering your lifestyle.

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) can save on electricity by reducing electricity consumption, on lighting, by up to 90% and this saving on electricity can equate to thousands of Rand.  LED light bulbs last 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs and five times longer than CFLs.  With their low consumption of electricity, LED lights contribute greatly to the reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases and unlike CFLs, LED light bulbs do not contain any mercury, a highly toxic pollutant.

A typical halogen down light costs approximately R30.00, and lasts for approximately 1,000 hours. A lightbulbmoment LED down light, of equivalent brightness, will cost R145.00; however, it will last for up to 50,000 hours.

Assuming the usage of a single lamp for 6 hours per day, the annual electricity savings from one 6 Watt LED light bulb, compared to a 50 Watt halogen lamp is 96 Kilowatt hours or R117. Your lighting usage is most certainly in excess of a single lamp. If your kitchen has 15 halogen down lights, your annual electricity savings on lighting your kitchen with LEDs would average R1,950. Use the Energy Savings Calculator to see your potential electricity savings.

lightbulbmoment offers a range of affordable LED light bulbs suitable for residential and commercial applications.

To benefit from the energy savings offered by LED lighting technology begin by replacing your halogen down lights with LED down lights. lightbulbmoment LED down lights are compatible with most halogen fittings and provide a similar form of light that is very bright and directional.
