GE has announced a new LED light bulb with an estimated life of 25,000 hours. At an average of 3 hours per day, that's more than 20 years.

The bulb produces 450 lumens, which is equivalent to a 40 watt incandescent bulb. Plus, the bulb is engineered to spread the light throw more evenly than some previous LED designs. It should comply with EPA ENERGY STAR standards.

The bulb will be available later this year or in early 2011. GE plans to exhibit this new product at upcoming trade shows, including Lightfair International in Las Vegas next month.
