A Chinese company called UGetLight has developed its own version of LED lamps that use liquid for Cooling Their lighting fixtures
Led bulbs have been a hit in recent years thanks to the power savings they offer combined with natural lighting rather than the fluorescent lighting to which we have become accustomed without much love.
But since their arrival on the market, problems have been discovered with the interesting technology. Problems that were already known during its development, and various methods were used to deal with them.
These problems focus on the overheating of the light fixtures inside the bulb. Although low voltage is used, temperatures can climb rapidly if no solution is available Cooling.
The LED bulbs we have come to know make use of fins Cooling Metallic in most cases, but these fins add to the weight of the bulb and the price and their heat dissipation solve the problem but only partially.
No new solution
Switch Lighting from California was the first Which showed liquid-cooled LED lamps The consumer market has been at 2012. Switch uses liquid silicon that fills the space The lamp allows the LED bulbs to cool down, using a unique piston that moves with the liquid. The piston prevents unnecessary pressure when the liquid expands and contracts as a result of the accumulation of heat.
The use of liquid cooling extends the life of the bulb, and also allows the use of most LED bulbs to reach the equivalent of a bulb of 100 watts of power - without unnecessary volume increase.

The solution is not very simple, but effective. This efficiency, however, costs money and LED light bulbs from Switch are priced at $ 30 for a bulb that offers parallel 40 watts.
A simpler application
Now an anonymous company named UGetLight from China has entered the picture Offers LED bulbs Which are more like the familiar incandescent bulbs that contain the coolant. The lamps contain a space for expansion and contraction of the liquid inside the bulb body in the form of air bubbles.
|And this is how the new UGetLight bulb looks - more standard, but still intriguing|
The design is simple, but not without problems. One of them is that the existence of the air bubble causes uneven lighting. The distributed light is hidden or distorted by the bubble and causes uneven lighting.

The new product, however, is already available on sites such as AliExpress at prices ranging from 189 dollars for a package of four bulbs (you can choose different colors), or between 8 and 25 for Nora dollars for wholesale orders of starting from 10000 units.
Will liquid-cooled bulbs offer the elegant solution to our needs, or is it just a milestone in a much longer journey? It has been many years since the incandescent bulb was invented, and with its relative inefficiency, it is still a sales hit today.

Neon bulbs and other solutions offer cheaper pricing but at the price of unnatural light. Studies have shown that natural lighting, or at least one that includes the entire spectrum of visible spectrum, is more beneficial to health.
