LED lighting in desk lamps are a growing phenomena as an alternative to incandescent and fluorescent lighting solutions. There are types of desktop lamps that you can use. The first solution is to replace the incandescent bulb in the lamp you are using. The LED bulb will cost about 40 times more than a regular bulb. The second solution is to get an LED lamp that is outfitted with a series of small LED’s that costs the same as an LED bulb. This solution is more cost effective because you get a lamp and individual LED’s are much cheaper to replace than an LED bulb.
There are many benefits to using LED lighting. This article discusses the top 3 main benefits for the use of LED lighting technology.
1) More shock resistant
LED lights are much hardier than their incandescent and fluorescent counterparts. We all know what happens when we drop a regular light bulb. It is not a pretty site. LED lights are difficult to damage from external shock. If you drop an LED lamp, you’ll more likely cause more damage to the lamp than the LED lighting on the lamp.
2) Longer life span
LED’s last an extremely long time compared to incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. On average an incandescent bulb will last up to 2000 hours, while florescent bulbs can last up to 15,000 hours. LED bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours, thus making the lighting in an LED lamp last up to 25 times longer that a regular incandescent lamp.
LED lamps and lighting provide many benefits for those looking for alternative and more green forms of lighting. If you are a frequent user of Desk lamps and use one for about 5 hours a day, you will see an advantage of replacing your incandescent desk lamp with an LED desk lamp through a decrease in electricity and a much longer life span for your desktop or nightstand table lamp. These numerous benefits make looking at this alternative light source a very viable option.
