Finest LED Lights: A Bright Future Chances are, you’re aware of the fact that LED (light-emitting diodes) bulbs perform great in flashlights. You may even realize how well they do for camping lights, fairy lights, signs, computers, security lights and indicator lights. But did you realize that, due to recent technological advances, we may be at the doorstep of a new era in LED home lighting? General Electric has recently unveiled a 40-watt LED bulb for regular home lighting, after they made a thermal breakthrough that allowed them to keep the bulbs cool enough. Another breakthrough in design helped in spreading out the light from the normally unidirectional LED bulbs. The bulbs are surrounded by a plastic casing that has a series of fins that disperses the bulbs’ light throughout the entire room. LED lights still aren’t as good at dispersing light as conventional lighting, but they’re getting better at it. In several ways, LED lights are better than fluorescent lighting. LED's, unlike compact fluorescent's (CFLs), contain no mercury, which CFL tubes give off when they shatter. LED lights have a longer lifespan than fluorescent tubes, and they’re much less likely to break. LED's attain full lumination immediately when you turn them on, and they work much better in cold places than fluorescent lights do. Unlike fluorescent tubes, LED bulbs aren’t affected by being turned on and off frequently. LED's are smaller and can come in just about any shape. And LED energy saving bulbs draw even less power than fluorescent tubes. The main problems with using LED's for general home lighting have been the high cost, the low-quality light and the unidirectional nature of the light, but manufacturers have been making progress in all these areas. Another stumbling block with LED's is that when they’re exposed to high temperatures, their light intensity decreases and sometimes they fail altogether. They also have quite distinct voltage and amperage specifications and are sensitive to changes in either. But there are some applications where LED's are clearly better than incandescent and fluorescent lights. In flashlights, the high initial expense of LED's is less of a factor because LED's have a longer lifespan and they drain batteries a lot less quickly than incandescents. LED's are also good at focusing light, and they perform well in cool conditions. LED's don’t burn out suddenly or break when you drop them, so they’re quite reliable for portable conditions like bike-riding or camping.

LED's work nicely for coloured lighting, since they don’t require coloured filters the way incandescent or fluorescent lights do. That, combined with their small size and low heat output, makes LED's terrific for indicator lights or Christmas lights. Consumers have been uncertain about using LED home lighting because of the high cost, especially when compared to incandescent lights. But change may be coming. Recently, the U.S. Congress voted for an energy resolution that, starting in 2012, will begin to phase out cheap, energy-intensive incandescent household bulbs. Congress also offered a prize of $10 million to the first manufacturer to start producing a quality LED energy saving light bulbs to replace the standard 60-watt incandescent.
