One of the newest and coolest LED bulbs on the market is the LED filament bulb!
The LED filament bulbs do a wonderful job of mimicking their traditional incandescent predecessors. LED filament type bulbs come in an array of shapes and sizes from the standard A19 shape to the nostalgic ST19 Edison type bulbs. LED filament bulbs also have the ability to be offered in various color temperatures which is great in spaces that are looking for a cooler whiter light but still want the traditional light bulb look.
How do they work?
Unlike high powered LED COB packages where there is usually 1 high powered LED chip inside of a glass/plastic or aluminum envelope, LED filament style bulbs use a different technology. This technology allows lighting manufacturers to be able to put very small LED emitters onto a linear filament style package. The LED emitters are then powered using a traditional glass insulated circuit similar to what is found in a traditional incandescent light bulb. When power is passed through the base of the lamp and onto the circuit the LED filaments emit instant light.
