Ultra Bulb

67 Votes

UltraBulb LED is the smarter light bulb. It’s made by Bell & Howell. It uses a new LED technology to create a bulb that’s unlike your old bulbs. UltraBulb shines a warm, bright light that’s evenly spread across the room. This is made possible by the 360-degree reflector that’s wrapped with 66 super-bright diode that shines light in every direction. UltraBulb is very cost-efficient; it will last for more than 10 years without burning out. One UltraBulb can replace 25 ordinary light bulbs. It’s great to use for hard-to-reach areas because with UltraBulb, you may never have to change light bulbs again.

The Claim

UltraBulb is totally unlike other light bulbs you have used. Odd-shaped LED bulbs shine a harsh light that’s directed in just one direction; whereas, UltraBulb spreads its light evenly across the room; there won’t be areas that are brighter than the rest. Ordinary bulbs get hot, but UltraBulb remains cool to the touch. UltraBulb works with dimmer switches; other LED bulbs cannot do that. Also, UltraBulb turns on instantly. There’s no need to wait for it to warm up, unlike other LED bulbs. UltraBulb uses 85% less energy when compared to a 60w incandescent over a 25,000 hour lifetime; it’s more economical to use.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Ultra Bulb is $19.99 plus $5.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Ultra Bulb by paying the extra shipping fee of $5.95 for a total price of $31.89.

How It Works

Bell and howell’s Ultra Bulb uses new led technology to shine super bright light throughout an entire room, allowing equal amounts of light to shine in any direction. While it is so powerful that it can replace the light of 25 standard lightbulbs, it actually uses 85 percent less energy than these do. The secret to its power is the 360 degree reflector that each one contains, which is wrapped in 28 bright diodes. When offering such effective illumination, you’d expect this bulb to get quite hot, but it actually remains cool to the touch at all times.

Uses

  1. Replacing Old Lightbulbs
  2. Many older varieties of lightbulbs are now obsolete, and the newer varieties just don’t cut it. Fluorescent bulbs are too dim, incandescent bulbs die too quickly, and most LED lightbulbs don’t shine evenly in all directions. Luckily, the Ultra Bulb comes with none of these problems, so it can replace an older lightbulb effectively, while offering a better quality of illumination.

  3. Hard-to-reach Lightbulbs
  4. The Ultra Bulb often lasts for 10 years, so it’s ideal to use in places that are hard to reach, since you will know that you won’t have to change those bulbs very often.

Positive Points

  • Doesn’t Get Hot
  • Even though an Ultra Bulb can warm a room with its light, it won’t feel hot when you touch it. This is especially beneficial if you have children in your home who like to poke at lightbulbs, as they’ll never burn themselves on these ones.

  • Turns On Instantly
  • While many lightbulbs take a few seconds to fully turn on after you flick your light switch, the Ultra Bulb does not. It will flash on immediately, already giving off its maximum level of light.

  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Since the Ultra Bulb uses less energy in comparison to other lightbulbs, even dimmer ones, using it is better for the environment than choosing another type.

Negative Points

  • Could Be Blinding
  • While everyone in your household will appreciate the brilliant light the Ultra Bulb has to offer, it could harm the eyes if one stares directly at it for too long.

Alternatives

  • Fluorescent Bulbs
  • Many people choose to use the spiral-shaped fluorescent bulbs since they are small and compact, but they don’t offer as much light as the Ultra Bulb.

  • Incandescent Bulbs
  • Incandescent bulbs, which are traditional-looking lightbulbs, offer a good amount of light, although not as much as the Ultra Bulb does. However, the main drawback to using them is that they die quickly, much more quickly than the Ultra Bulb.

  • Led Bulbs
  • Led bulbs are often odd-shaped, so they are hard to fit into many lamps and other lights. Plus, they often shine a very strong light, but only in one direction, while the Ultra Bulb spreads its light evenly throughout an area.

Save Money

You will save money on your electricity bill if you use Ultra Bulbs. They’re so powerful that you won’t have to have as many lights on at once; plus, since they use 85 percent less energy compared to other bulbs, you won’t be charged as much for their use.

Save Time

When you use the Ultra Bulbs, you won’t have to waste time buying new lightbulbs and changing them as often, since one Ultra Bulb will last up to ten years, and you won’t need as many of them to illuminate your home to begin with.

Warranty

Good thing there are guaranteed mine only lasted 1.5 months a piece in different sockets almost always roughly the same amount of time goes by till they let go again I have cfl from 2011 02 that still work. Don't buy these they junk. But they do give out good lighting. The down side you'll be returning then every other month fir replacement. Sort of outweighs the benefits of this bulb.

Ultra Bulb 60w

I purchased several from last summer's TV ad. They took 5-6 weeks to arrive. I'm guessing they get a bunch of paid orders then notify the factory to make "x" many. Anyway, I'm very pleased with the LED bulbs and they didn't cause radio interference like those awful "squiggly" fluorescent bulbs can do.

Good Enough

I bought a couple of the 34-led versions at Canadian Tire. Good price. Looks and acts like the traditional incandescant bulbs, but does not dim properly. When the dimmer is adjusted, the bulb goes either dim or full bright. Other LED bulbs on the market work better with dimmers. If the price is the same, I'd buy Phillips. Otherwise this one is OK.

Bulb Orders

I placed my order on Sept 16 / 14 and it says allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. Now its been 5 weeks they say that they are out of stock. They gave no estimate as to when they will ship my order. They blocked all avenues to email them. I'm not sure what to think.

What I would think is that they are out of stock and you will get your order when they are in stock. This could mean 2 days or 2 months. Did they charge your credit card? I'd cancel my order or dispute the charge on my credit card. Anyways, thanks for the heads up, I was thinking of buying one.

The ad says the bulb works with dimmer switches, but on the bulb itself it has "Not for use with dimmers " Which is it? I don't want to ruin my bulbs by not following manufactures advice.

Don't look at watts. look at lumens, it is the amount of light it gives off. 1 60 watt incandescent bulb = 620 lumens 1 (7) watt led. = 500 lumens.
