LED Light Bulb Benefits


  • Save money in electricity costs
  • Instant on/off
  • Light the color of daylight
  • Works in cold weather
  • Use only 2-10 watts of electricity (1/3rd to 1/30th of Incandescent or CFL)
  • Can sustain moderate power surges
  • Long lasting - up to 60,000 hour bulb life
  • Durable bulbs with no fragile filaments to break from shaking and rattling
  • Cool running (warm to the touch) - little heat compared to standard bulbs
  • Directional lighting generates less wasted light
  • Works with sensor activated lights (CFL bulbs are not recomended for sensors)
  • Works with most dimmer switches (most CFL bulbs are not recomended for dimmers)
  • Contains no mecury



Additional Info

Found this similar information on the EarthLED site:




Even our most powerful replacement bulb (XR-10) uses only 10 watts of electricity, yet it performs on par with a 100 watt incandescent bulb and is due to the extremely efficient nature of EarthLEDs. Traditional incandescent bulbs waste 98% of their energy producing wasted heat. EarthLEDs on the other hand produce very little heat in order to maintain  brilliant light saving and even assist in cooling costs.
When you look at the costs to run traditional incandescent bulbs they simply don't make sense:
One - 100 Watt bulb costs approximately $43 dollars to run per year at 12 hours per day. But don't forget that since an incandescent bulb only lasts 1000 hours, chances are you would have bought at least 4 replacement bulbs over the course of the year, bringing your total cost for just one light fixture to $50.
Compare this to...
One - 10 Watt EarthLED XR-10 costs approximately $4.30 to run per year at 12 hours per day. Since it was on for approximately 4000 hours it still has nearly 10 years of life! Even throughout its entire 11 year life an XR-10 will costapproximately $120 while a traditional fixture using an incandescent bulb will cost nearly $550!
As you can see, replacing the majority of the lighting in your home or business with EarthLEDs can really add up in terms of real money saved.
