Dubbed Parathom Classic, the bulb consumes 8W and produces 345 lm at a colour temperature of 3,000K. Lifetime is claimed to be 25.000h.

“This is the very first bulb shaped LED lamp which constitutes a true substitute for a 40W incandescent lamp,” said Christian Schraft, head of consumer lighting at Osram.
