For those of you keeping tracking of such information, Philips Lighting has earned an Energy Star thumbs-up for its LED replacement targeted at 60-watt incandescent light bulbs. The Philips AmbientLED 12.5-watt product (aka Philips EnduraLED) has earned the Energy Star label with an 806-lumen output, 2700K color temperature (for soft white light), a color rendering index (CRI) of 80 and a six-year warranty.

As the energy efficiency lighting wars hit up -- there is a slew of big names attacking the 60-watt replacement market, including General Electric -- Philips has also submitted an A19 replacement bulb for consideration under the U.S. Department of Energy's L Prize. This is an initiative that seeks, among other things, to spur the creation of an A19 replacement that can produce 900 lumens using less than 10 watts of electricity.
