provide lowest cost LED modules to lighting industry and eventually to homes and work spaces. Promote our “World Lamp” concept

Easy LED Lighting

Our mission is to provide lowest cost LED modules and technologies to lighting industry and eventually to homes and work spaces. Also we are here to promote our “World Lamp” concept to truly help environments.

Company

Easy LED Lighting Technologies Inc. is a clean-tech start up based in Fremont, California. We specialize in design and manufacture of high-brightness LED modules that has high light output level and is really environmental friendly. Our current product, Easy LED module, is a High Brightness yet simple constructed LED module ideally suited for many lighting applications.

Problem

LED lighting has become more and more acceptable by general public. Most people recognize LED as a cleaner light source as they use less energy to operate. However, most high power LED lighting devices either uses exotic Metal Core PCB or bulky heat sink to handle exceed heat. They not only use more material to build, consume more energy in their fabrication process and also weight more for shipping. Needless to say, they cost more for consumers as well as our environment.

Solution

Easy LED module utilized patented technology to handle wasted heat, a general byproduct from high power LED. Our product uses less material, less energy and cost less to build. This 16W LED module weighs only 60 grams or 2 Oz, thanks to its simple construction body. And its versatile mounting bracket allows it to be used in many applications.

Kickstarters

We are hoping by providing a valid and low cost solution, we can expedites the rate people adapt to LED lighting, give a hand to our environments. Easy LED lighting has built hundreds of Easy LED modules, gone through UL certification process to proof it’s safe to use and field tested them in different lamp applications. The result is overwhelming positive. Now we need to build more inventory and start to promote this truly environmental friendly LED module and also this waste heat handling technology. If one thing is more environmental friendly than other products, we certainly would want it to be used in broader and broader applications.

A) We need to fund sales campaigns and attending trade shows to promote this excellent product to more manufacture partners, remember, the more it’s adopted the more environments we can save.

B) We are here to promote a “World Lamp” project that will push this environmental saving thing to a next level. Our whole World lamp design is simple, use less material and cost less to build and to ship. It’s so low cost even developing countries can afford to use this energy efficient lighting method, hence more energy saving.

C) We want to continue improve manufacture process and to develop newer technology to further reduce cost and material used for LED lighting, to make LED lighting really easy to adopt.

This is where Kickstarter comes in. Help Easy LED Lighting to transform the world of LED lighting. The more you help us to make progress on these tasks; the faster the acceleration of customer adaption of energy efficiency, you’ll be helping to slow down consumption of world’s limited resource!

Easy LED module

UL approved, Size 3”x9” slim module that contains 3 Cree XT-E LED, its typical current is 1500mA DC current, rated 16Watt with light output at 1300 lumens (a standard 60Watt incandescent bulb has light output of 800 lumens). The mounting bracket of this module can be bent to aim its light output angle. While it already has 4 screw holes and 3 slots for mounting, customer may do their own rework for mounting.

Easy LED “World Lamp”

This new concept, 3’ long shop light will change your view to shop light. Not only it uses about half of energy to operate comparing to fluorescent lamp, it also uses very little material to build. That’s truly environmental friendly. While weights less than 2.5lbs, it is Earthquake or drop safe. And it has a unique style, too. Look from the side, this lamp looks like a triangle tube with two top fins for hanging/mounting. It can be hang from above as a regular shop light, or it can sit stand along vertically, on floor or even on table; at 36” height, it doesn’t need any extra support to stand. No other shop light has this standard feature. These are just its working function of this magical lamp; its collapse lamp shell body reduces shipping and storage space, and it’s very easy to assemble, usually can be done in less than one minute; it’s that easy, if you ever plan to move your lamps, this is the lamp for you; did I mention it is light weight? I bet you have many usages for this great lamp.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

With a technology start up, there are always risks. Will people agree with our view? Is industry willing to move? What is the demand for the product? Easy LED Lighting has spent the past years designing, developing solutions that address lighting industry’s need and have had to overcome numerous hurdles. Our voices are still weak to be heard! But with the right ingenuity, leadership, strategic partnerships and persistence it is possible to deliver an inexpensive, light weight and really environmentally friendly LED module for the lighting industry. The company is in the initial stages of production, and with the mass production of a new product there are inherent challenges that need to be overcome. To help reduce production challenges and risks, Easy LED Lighting has test run with the best contract manufacturers and the best suppliers with valid track records to overcome issues and challenges. Like most of products made, the material cost manufacture pricing is variable based on volume, demand and lead times. New LED array suppliers with quality product are coming to market and Easy LED Lighting expects pricing to decline dramatically over time and reduce costs and supply risks. The company is always working on cost reduction opportunities to increase profit margins and keep costs low. One of the biggest hurdles that Easy LED Lighting faces is customer awareness and acceptance. Although the new technology solves many problems, it needs to be first heard, then there are existing sales and distribution channels that’s not easy to be moved. These networks need to be fostered and developed to enhance sales.

FAQ

  • I use Cree TX-E LED, and these are very good LEDs, Color temperature is around 5000k, Natural white. CRI is 75, very high, means it preserves color very well

  • We had a section saying if we had 3000 backer for this world lamp, we would donate 1000 World Lamp to developing country. However, that was against Kickstarter guide line so I had to edit out that section. We still want to do that if we can but it is not tie to pledge.

    Last updated:
  • No, by LED itself has about the same lumen per watt ratio compare to fluorescent light.

    The reason our lamp only use half of energy has a lot to do with LED is a directional light source. Our LED chips emit light at around 120 degree and we hang it at close to ceiling and point downward, hence our light is more concentrated that the 360 degree tubes; plus our LED driver has better energy efficiency than typical fluorescent ballast.
