The MagicBulb, touted as the "world’s first rechargeable light bulb,"  is headed to U.S. store shelves.

According to Home Channel News, the Norway-based maker of MagicBulb, LED International, has announced that its product has been introduced in the U.S., but no specifics were provided about where or when it was available. Price ranges from $25-60 per bulb.

LED International claims the bulbs have a lifespan of more than 20,000 hours, saves up to 90% of energy compared with other bulbs and, once battery-charged, can shine up to three hours. It can be used in any light fixture and is also portable.

The MagicBulb has received a number of awards including a Gold Medal at the 19th China National Invention Exhibition in September and the IWIS Medal at the International Warsaw Invention Show in 2009.
