Small LED Lights Cute but Useful

small led lightsSince the introduction of LED lighting in the early 60s, there are now various types and sizes of LED lights available on the market, some of which may be very large and heavy, such as outdoor floodlighting while some may be small and portable like the usual bulbs. Small LED lights are not only cute and handy but also possess the same advantages of LED technology.
LED lights in general have many advantages over conventional light sources like halogen bulbs for example. Some of the features that make LED technology the best choice when it comes to light sources, is that they last long, have incredibly low power consumption and most of them have very small dimensions.
The use of LED technology is widespread and it is used in the widest variety of purposes like light source in the automotive and aerospace industries, making neon signs, in the advertising industry (especially in casinos), traffic signs etc.
LED lighting enabled a completely new way of displaying texts in the advertising industry. Their ability to provide high frequency switching is very useful in the communications industry. Infrared LEDs are also used for remote controlled devices in many commercial and widespread consumer goods such as DVD players, TVs, gaming consoles and many other devices.

Many LED lights that are made in the 70s are still in use. This is something which is not possible with other artificial light sources. According to some statistics the standard lifespan of LED lights is between 30.000 and 100.000 hours. Things like temperature and quality of power supply can significantly affect their lifespan.
The most common symptom of failure in this type of lighting is a significant reduction of light emitted and the loss of efficiency. The sudden failures and outages of LED lights are very rare. Just like any other light source, the work and lifespan of LED lights depends on the temperature. Most manufacturers claim that the most suitable temperature for LED lights is around 25 C (77 F). LED lights used outside, for example in traffic signs, have low level of intensity and efficiency. Furthermore, this type of lights used outside in unsuitable conditions often break down.
LED lights are made of different inorganic semiconductor materials. LED lights can emit light in different colors like red, orange, infrared, yellow, green, purple, blue, pink and white.
There are various kinds of LED lights, and some are indeed very small, to the degree of less than 2mm. however, there is one thing that can’t be taken for granted: small things mean less efficiency, which is of course untrue for small LED lights.  Small LED lights have many advantages in addition to the above mentioned benefits of LED technology. Have a try of them and get your own judgment.
