Unveiling the CCFL

We are in the process of adding over 20 different cold cathode fluorescent light bulbs (CCFLs) to pegasuslighting.com, so we thought it was prime time for a blog feature on CCFLs.

The market for energy-efficient light bulbs is ever-growing.  Just in the past couple of months, Vu1 Corporation has developed a light bulb based on technology from a picture tube TV, Google and Lighting Science Group have partnered to create an Android-controlled LED light bulb, and GE has designed a “hybrid” halogen-compact fluorescent light bulb.

The cold cathode fluorescent light bulb is by no means a new technology, but it is a product that has improved significantly in the past few years.  In fact, Gizmodo wrote a feature on them back in 2007 explaining their potential:

These other-worldly cold cathode fluorescent light bulbs are in some ways even better than CFL (compact fluorescent) bulbs, because they’re easily dimmable and operate at room temperature. They have extremely long life, are wet-rated for outdoor use and can be used as blinking lights in tacky store displays, too. Plus, they save lots of energy because of their lower wattage and nonexistent heat output. (more…)

Pegasus Lighting Debuts Mobile Website

Pegasus Lighting Mobile WebsiteBEAVER FALLS, PA, May 13 – As smartphones continue to become an integral part of the shopping process, consumer data proves mobile-friendly websites are increasingly valuable. In fact, a recent study from Google indicated that 79% of smartphone owners use their mobile devices to shop, whether that involves researching a product, comparing prices, or making a direct purchase.

On April 27, Pegasus Lighting launched a mobile version of their e-commerce website (http://m.pegasuslighting.com). The lighting retailer presence in the mobile space is surprisingly sparse. Pegasus Lighting saw an opportunity to offer online shoppers the convenience of a site designed specifically for smartphones while still providing the full feature-set from its main website. This includes extensive product information, product reviews, FAQs, and a dedicated Help section.

The mobile site is especially valuable for Pegasus Lighting’s many repeat business customers, who are often in the field. These customers can log into their accounts, check order statuses, review past orders, and place future orders all in the palms of their hands.

The announcement comes a year after the launch of the company’s Lighting Library app, which has received positive reviews among professionals and consumers alike. The free iPhone app offers a glossary of over 100 everyday lighting terms.
