When we developed an OEM arm onsite here in New York City, LED Waves distinguished itself as perhaps the smallest company manufacturing LED lamps in the USA. We set out to prove that affordable, high quality LED lighting is possible without offshore manufacturing.
The Los Angeles 2.0 MR16 LED Light Bulb is one example of our realization of this goal. It is a 4.5 Watt replacement for the 35 Watt halogen 12v bulbs commonly used in track lighting and display cases. While imported Cree LED MR16s of similar brightness (approx. 350 lumens) typically retail over $32.00, the LA 2.0 has a per unit price of $19.99. And right now it’s on sale for 10% off! Wowie zowie.
Several factors allow us to offer this MR16 at such a competitive low price. Perhaps most notable is the newest Cree XB-D chips that go into each one. Like its XLamp predecessors, the XB-D combines brightness, efficiency, and superior quality of light. What sets this new chip apart is its price; it leverages the SC³ Technology Platform developed by Cree to accelerate worldwide adoption of LED lighting. So now it’s more affordable than ever for manufacturers (like us) to pass this technology onto the public (like you!).
Manufacturing in the USA also helps lower the cost of the Los Angeles 2.0 LED MR16. We save a third of production costs by cutting out middlemen based in China, as well as international freight charges.
Building these LED lights in-house also grants us a higher level of hands-on quality control, which gives us the confidence to offer a 5 Year Warranty on each American-made product. The LA 2.0 is available online in Warm White (3000K) or Neutral White (4000K) and in beam angles of 17 or 37 degrees. It is eligible for our Free Shipping offer, running now through August 31, 2012. Don’t let this deal pass you by!
