Innovative technology and special plastic lenses used in today’s LEDs means that they are twice as bright as conventional types using the same amount of energy!
LED, Light-Emitting Diode...latest technology in lighting
LEDs have an extremely long life span. Manufacturers calculated the ETTF (Estimated Time To Failure) for their LEDs to be between 100,000 and 1,000,000 hours Fluorescent tubes typically are rated at about 10,000 hours, and incandescent light bulbs at 1,000-2,000 hours. LEDs, being solid state components, are difficult to damage with external shock. Fluorescent and incandescent bulbs are easily broken if dropped on the ground. The solid package of an LED can be designed to focus its light. Incandescent and fluorescent sources often require an external reflector to collect light and direct it in a usable manner. Thanks to modern plastics material LED lighting offers both uniform light diffusion to eliminate (LED) "pinholes” and a view of light sources, and superior light transmission for exceptional optical brightness at lower energy costs.
