We're pleased to give you a first look at the final production version of SWITCH100 LED llght bulb. The SWITCH100 as its name would suggest is the 100 watt version of the immensely popular SWITCH line of LED light bulbs. Due to be released in March, the SWITCH100 is the perhaps the most highly anticipated LED bulb since the Philips L-Prize launched last April.
The first thing to get out of the way that the SWITCH100 is being launched in a 4000K or neutral white color temperature and clear glass at first. 3000K and frosted versions will be available in the May/June timeframe. While this perhaps limits the initial appeal of the bulb to applications that work better with the neutral color temp, it still does not diminish the achievement of fitting such an enormous amount of light output into a form factor that mimics the appearance of a traditional bulb. SWITCH has stated the primary mission for the first model of the SWITCH100 is primarily for commercial use where a 4000K 100 watt replacement is in high demand. Most of the 100 watt LED replacements are truly behemoths to behold as evidenced by the photo below with the SWITCH100 alongside the Philips 100 Watt replacement:
In keeping with the SWITCH product identification scheme, the green band above the screw base will be used in indicate that this is part of the 100 watt replacement range. A quick glance at the specs shows this is indeed among the elite in terms of light output in a standard A shape size:

We'll update this page with more action shots soon but here is an initial shot of the SWITCH100 running. As you can see, the color is very white in color which again, is in line with SWITCH's primary commercial mission for this product. However, with that said, this would still be a great replacement for 100 watt incandescents used in household environments where the bright white light works great such as reading lamps or utility or garage locations.
So there you have it, the first shots of a SWITCH100 in production form. You can view our product page for the SWITCH100 here and sign up to be notified when the product is available. Once again, the first launch model will be the 4000K clear with 3000K and frosted versions coming this summer.
