innovative Flamber 9-Watt LED bulb in Chennai

Vinverth introduces the innovative Flamber 9-Watt LED bulb in Chennai

Press Release Flamber-9-Watt-LED-bulb-launch-in-Chennai.jpg

A revolutionary lighting solution, the multi-purpose and versatile Flamber LED bulb offers easy portability, optimum saving and innovative usability

UAE basedVinverth, a leading brand of consumer electronics and consumer appliances, has introduced the revolutionary Flamber 9-Watt LED bulb, a highly innovative technology that can take its brilliance absolutely anywhere, regardless of a power source.

A bulb that can light up with a mere touch of moisture, the multi-functional Flamber bulb is highly portable and multi-functional as it can serve the functionality of an LED bulb, a handheld flashlight, a power inverter, a camping light, and emergency lantern.

The ultra-efficient bulb that could revolutionize the very concept of providing lighting is made of 18 LEDs, giving a total lumen output of 900 – equivalent to a 75 – 100 watt incandescent bulb or conventional bulb. The Flamber bulb has life span of 12 years and promises a saving of 10-15 per cent more on energy and cost.

Commenting on the new technology, Mr. Sajan Joseph George, CEO of Jupiter Group, the parent company of the Vinverth brand, said:We are very pleased to launch Vinverth Flamber. This is one of our best innovations yet, owing to the freedom of mobility and multiple functionality it offers. We believe that this innovation will lift every corner of the world out of darkness, sustainably. This little wonder bulb can light the world. The simplicity of its usage makes the bulb even more appealing to the user.

In addition to the energy and cost saving, the Vinverth 9W Flamber LED bulb is equipped with an advanced intelligent power monitoring circuit that detects the power supply in the grid. With this technology, the LED bulb will automatically switch between AC or DC power mode enabling the bulb to stay on even when the power is disconnected, solely being controlled by the regular wall switch! This unique feature comes with no manual AC or DC switch on the bulb, or any remote or additional accessory to activate this function.

The bulb comes with a fully automatic built-in power station which powers it when the main electricity source is disconnected.

The bulb can be switched off and on as easily as you would operate when the power is switched on. The bulb can stay on in this mode for up to 3 to 4 nights depending on the hours of use or up to 25 hours in total. It gets fully charged in 3 hours once the power is back. In short, for the 3 hours of charging time, you would get 25 hours of non-stop operation.

The Vinverth Flamber LED bulb comes with an E27 to B22 converter, so it can be used anywhere in the world irrespective of the socket type, pin or screw.

The Vinverth Flamber LED bulb is highly portable. To mobilize the light source, one simply needs to remove the bulb from its socket and attach the standalone activation dock to the base of the bulb which is yet another innovation by Vinverth. This would allow the bulb to operate by itself without plugging it into any socket. This converts the bulb into a camping light, an emergency light, or even a Flashlight.

This feature adds tremendous value to the customer as it provides a large light source free from cables, electricity, and reduces the workforce required to setup an event, concerts or outdoor functions. The bulb gives freedom to operate in areas where immediate infrastructure setup is unavailable such as in disaster struck areas, road accidents, camping and trekking.

The little bulb caters to many lighting needs owing to its easy portability. It is especially ideal for gardens and parks where lengthy wiring can be avoided, and as street lighting for community livings and regular street lighting. The bulb can bring light into remote areas where regular lighting is not accessible due to the high cost of connecting these locations with their nearest available transformers.

In cases where the standalone activation dock is missing or lost, any material that can conduct a small charge can be used to complete the circuit and turn on the bulb. The bulb can even use water in a glass to turn itself on. One must take care, however, to not immerse the bulb fully for the risk of damaging the circuit.

The Vinverth 9W Flamber LED bulb is being made available through local distributors and dealers in Chennai.Any interested parties for distribution are welcome to enquire via email at[email protected].

About Vinverth

Vinverth is the first one to come out with the ground-breaking High Definition technology in the DVD players, which uses the HVD disc formats. Vinverth has at the moment launched the High Definition DVD players, Home Theatres, the fastest wrinkle removing Steam Irons and the Thermo Vent Shield Bulbs.
