The Philips Slimstyle 10.5 Watt A19 LED Soft White (2700K) light bulb is the same size as a traditional A19 light bulb but with a new, sleek, flat design. It is really as Philips claims; which is fully dimmable.
With a medium base, this bulb replaces your current 60W incandescent A19 and costs about $1.26 per year in supply energy costs.
This 10.5W bulb uses $28.88 of electricity (supply costs not delivery costs over its 25,000 hour life, a $136.13 savings when compared to the $165 required to run a 60 Watt, 800-lumen bulb over the same period. If you include delivery costs which today is about the same or one and a half times
the supply costs. That means over $300.00 in total energy savings. When you have 35 recessed lights then you are talking over a thousand dollars in total savings. Now this also usually estimates a similar energy cost but not a realistic time cost. Meaning Philips assumes you use lights 3 hours a day; which is just not normal. So if we assume 6 hours of use, then we are talking over $2,000.00 in total energy savings for 35 lamps. Now things can go up and down but this cost keeps dropping by the day. Meaning replace a 75 watt lamp and go to this one and you’re saving well over $3,000. So check how big your house is and how many lamps. Then go from there.
Philips SlimStyle A19 LED really does provide a well rounded, 360 degree, all around light.
The unique shape of the Philips SilmStyle allows it to be used in more applications than your traditional A19, including table Lamps, floor Lamps and wall sconces.

As has been reported by the US DOE, if every 60-watt incandescent in the U.S. was replaced with the bulb, the nation would collectively save $3.9 billion in energy costs in one year. Such a swap-out would curb the emission of 20 million metric tons of CO2, the equivalent of removing 4 million cars from the road.
