Philips LED myVision Bulbs
This is a new innovation - a range of LED bulbs designed to fit into standard bayonet or screw fit light sockets.
The new myVision LED bulbs consume 6W or 9.5W of power and emit light output similar to standard 40W or 60W incandescent bulbs, respectively. Designed to resemble a traditional frosted light bulb all Philips LEDs are mercury-free and produce high quality natural shades of white light.
Philips LED light bulbs use up to 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs and can last 15-25 times longer. With lighting making up around 12% of the average New Zealand home's electricity bill, converting to energy efficient lighting is one simple and effective way to reduce overall energy consumption.

LED Lenser X14 Torch
What is about blokes and torches? This is one of my must have guy-toys (and if that's not a hint for Father's Day I don't know what is).
The new LED Lenser X14 is seriously bright. We're talking 450 lumens of brightness with an astounding 350 metre range. This brightness is achieved through the unique torch head that has two light sources, producing a pair of beams that converge into a super-concentrated light cone.
The torch features technical advancements such as the Advanced Focus System which means you can easily switch between a broad floodlight and sharply focused long distance beam. It also features Smart Light Technology, which means you can customize the torch to your needs by choosing between two energy modes and three light programmes with up to eight light functions.
