The news shows that the future of LED lighting is bright. The current market growth is largely.
LED light bulbs, lamps and fixtures typically use 80% less energy than incandescent equivalents, and 50% less than fluorescent replacements. LEDs are typically rated to last 35,000 hours, which is 20 times longer than an incandescent equivalent, and 3 to 4 times as long as a fluorescent. These LED light provide the same illumination as conventional electrical lights but at a much lower cost saving a lot on your electrical bills. LED light bulbs do not contain lead or mercury and most of the components of LED light bulbs are also recyclable making them a truly green product. They also can be made much smaller than traditional light bulbs while still emitting more light than traditional bigger bulb, yet they still give off less heat than regular light bulbs do when lit for hours.
LED lighting technology is the safest, hippest, and most energy efficient way to light up the world.
