The eCandescent is an ultra-energy-efficient light bulb that can literally last a lifetime, which is why it's dubbed 'the Last Bulb You'll Ever Need' by its inventors.

Unlike most other light bulbs, the eCandescent light bulb is completely free of Mercury, making it perfectly safe for every day use. It emits no harmful UV radiation and doesn't need to be disposed in a special manner, and can be discarded with your regular trash once it passes its sell-by date. All of these features make the eCandescent the least toxic light bulb on the market, in addition to the most energy-efficient.

The eCandescent light bulb is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign. A pledge of $25 will get you set up with an eCandescent starter kit -- a 2-pack of standard eCandescent bulbs.
