Plumen Wattnott

Wattnott Aims to Boot Out the Edison Bulb Once and For All!

Have you met WattNott? It's Plumen's playful, colourful, slightly wacky family of filament LED bulbs created to give the boot to squirrel cage Edison bulbs!

Sure, we all love a good old Edison bulb. Their iconic shapes are loved by design fans all over the world and don't even get one started on the beautiful light they cast. Yet the facts remain: they waste energy in a BIG way and they're not too kind on your energy bill either.

So, when LED filament technology came out, Plumen took the classic Edison bulb and gave it a 21st century makeover. Same look, same light, new technology.

How did they go about this? Simple. They listed the ways that incandescent bulbs beat LED technology, and then matched them. Take a look at how they scored traditional Edison bulbs vs their new WattNott range:

Design

At Plumen, design is their area of expertise but the whole point of the WattNott range was to mimic the classic shapes of the Edison bulb and add some teeny tiny design twists... Call them crazy.

Edison 0 – 0 WattNott
That's a tie.

Light Quality

Plumen asked their engineering team to carefully analyse the light quality of incandescent bulbs and reproduce the same brightness and warmth with their LED filaments. Plus, WattNott comes in two varieties: a traditional clear glass that gives off a warm light or a gold tinted glass which provides a super warm light similar to candlelight. Hellooooo warm, comforting glow.

Edison 0 – 0 WattNott
The stalemate continues.

Technology

Navigating through the maze of new technology can be a tricky business so they decided to address this issue and make it simple. From the product name to the colour-coded packaging – not forgetting the straightforward imagery and colour temperature options – every single step of the process has been cleverly thought through to make choosing the right bulb super easy.

Edison 0 – 0 WattNott
Scores remain tied with three rounds gone!

Efficiency

Surprise, surprise, LED technology is more efficient than the incandescent. The question is: by how much? Incandescent bulbs last an average of 1,000 hours which is roughly 1 year's use. WattNott bulbs, on the other hand, last up to 25,000 hours! That gives you approximately 25 years to enjoy your new bulb. How old will you be when your WattNott finally gives up?

Edison 1 – 25 WattNott
WattNott storms into the lead! That looks like the knockout blow…

Dimmability

Well, that's a tie. Edison bulbs and the WattNott range are both dimmable.

Edison 1 – 26 WattNott
Final result: Edison 1 – 26 WattNott. The fifth and final round is all square which leaves WattNott as the winner!
