LED was once used only for traffic signals, brake lights, headlights, and headlights on luxury cars and appliances. It's likely that you didn't know that LED lights lit up your digital clocks, flashlights, and told you when your phone had a new voicemail.
Although initially expensive, the benefits of LED lights were soon discovered and manufacturing costs dropped. You can now also look for the best multi color LED lights at Color Lighting by LIGMAN.

According to the American Lighting Association, lighting manufacturers have spent a lot of time, effort, and research in adapting this energy-efficient technology for household usage. The technology is so advanced that it has been approved by the popular Energy Star(r), a government program. Here's how it works:
LED's do more with less power: LED's produce a lot of light for very little energy. One example is that a 5-watt LED can produce more light (measured as lumens) then a standard 75-watt incandescent lamp.
At 1/15 the energy consumption, the 5-watt LED could perform the same job as the 75-watt incandescent. LED's are energy- and money-saving. This is because 90% of LED lights convert energy into light while 90% goes to heat. Only 10% of incandescent bulbs produce visible light.
LEDs are virtually maintenance-free. There is no filament that can burn out so they last longer. An average "long-lasting" household bulb will last for around 2,000 hours. An LED can last up to 100,000 hours.
According to some sources, LEDs can last up to 40 years. Imagine never having to change your light bulb again for many years. There are many LED products that can replace your light bulbs for as little as 20 years.
