Light emitting diode or LED for short, is completely different from the normal incandescent bulb. The advantages of LED lights are high levels of brightness and intensity, high efficiency, low radiated heat and a long service life just to name a few. All of this spills down to a lower wattage light needed thus saving you electricity. LED lights come in bulbs, tubes, floodlights, rope lights and strip lights. LED lights service life ranges from 15 000 to 50 000 hours depending on the price and quality of the light.
