The last decade has seen an acceleration in the adoption of LED (light emiting diode) lighting both for residential and commercial applications, a fact that pleases us greatly as LEDs are not only great energy savers, but fabulous material for creative minds! Best of all, environmentally speaking, LEDs offer:
Energy efficiency – the 1-Watt LED runs up to 20 hours on a set of double A batteries – we promote the usage of rechargeable double A’s. This compares to less than 3 hours on the same power source for an incandescent bulb with similar light output or 8 hours on a comparable fluorescent bulb.
A long life span (less waste) – up to 100,000 hours
Safety – no chance of combustion, since the LED chip runs much cooler that incandescent lamps.
Sturdiness – the epoxy lenses are practically indestructible
