- Long-lastingOpen or Close
LEDs typically last over 60,000 hours. (An incandescent light bulb typically lasts 1,000 hours.) A long life equals savings on future maintenance and cost.
- Low TemperatureOpen or Close
LEDs have 90% energy efficiency, so only 10% is wasted on emitting heat. (An Incandescent bulb wastes 90% of it’s energy on emitting heat and CFLs waste 80%.) Less heat means the bulb safer, as it’s cool to the touch.
- EfficientOpen or Close

- DurableOpen or Close
LEDs do not have glass components, nor is there any filament, so the bulb cannot be damaged via vibration.
- Eco-friendlyOpen or Close
