Innovative LED Light Bulb an Ideal Preparedness Gift

Manhattan, NY — November 10, 2014 – While winter is still more than a month away, it’s never too early to prepare for the possibility of bad weather blackouts caused by Mother Nature’s furor. The SmartCharge LED Bulb is the ideal household preparedness choice and holiday gift choice, particularly for bedrooms, kitchens and storm shelters.

The United States endures more blackouts than any other developed nation as the number of U.S. power outages lasting more than an hour have increased steadily for the past decade, according to federal databases at the Department of Energy and the North American Electric Reliability Corp.

Available now for a suggested retail price of $34.95, the SmartCharge LED Bulb is the only lighting product on the market that provides a built-in battery backup and full control of the bulb when the power goes out — thanks to SmartCharge’s integrated patent-pending Grid and Switch Sensor Technology.

“A year ago we launched the idea of the SmartCharge LED Bulb, completing a successful Kickstarter campaign, developing samples, taking feedback from retailers and producing our first run of SmartCharge bulbs. By the end of this year, the SmartCharge product range will expand to include bulbs in three different color temperatures: 3000K Warm White, 4000K Neutral White, and 5000K Cool White,” said Shaliendra Suman, CEO and inventor of the SmartCharge LED bulb. SmartCharge bulbs are available now on the SmartCharge website,, and from other online retailers.

“Obviously there is high interest in this concept beyond the United States, in fact we’ve already sold the SmartCharge LED Bulb in over 30 countries. I recently returned from CES Unveiled Paris, where I met with distributors interested in bringing the SmartCharge bulb to Europe. Whether SmartCharge bulbs are used domestically or internationally, it’s clear that our product can keep people from being left in the dark during a power outage. A gift that encourages safety and peace-of-mind can be ideal for a family member or friend, and the SmartCharge LED Bulb would be a great choice this season,” Suman explained.

Featured in Eureka Park at the 2014 International CES, the SmartCharge LEB Bulb returns to the 2015 International CES at Eureka Park Booth #75450, at Tech West in the Sands Convention Center.
