LEDs use only about 10% of the energy an incandescent lamp requires. You can buy led bulbs in India from Compact Lighting at affordable prices.
LEDs come to full brightness without needing any time for warm up just like incandescent lamps and unlike most fluorescent lamps. The life of fluorescent lighting is also decreased by frequent switching on and off. The initial cost of LED is usually higher.
An LED lamp packaging shows the lumen output, power consumption in watts, colour temperature or description, operating temperature range. It sometimes shows the equivalent wattage of an incandescent or fluorescent lamp of similar luminous output.
Most LEDs do not emit light in all directions and this characteristic affect the design of lamps. But the directional lamps are becoming more popular as they radiate light over a 360° angle. The light output of a single LED is less than that of incandescent and fluorescent lamps, so multiple LEDs are mostly used to form a lamp.
LED chips need controlled direct current (DC) electrical power. A proper circuit which is known as LED driver is required to convert alternating current from the supply to direct current used by the LEDs. LEDs are seriously affected by high temperature. So LED lamps come with heat dissipation components such as heat sinks and cooling fins.
LED drivers is an important part of LED lamp. A good LED driver is essential for a long lifetime of LED systems. The LED bulbs at Compact Lighting give your home a modern look and also reduces your electricity bill significantly.
