Posted October 7, 2014 by metzgerjim5

Nowadays, the use of LED lights is increasing and it finds application in many fields right from the flashlight in mobile phones to the street lights.

It is also being used to light up rooms and also many conference rooms. The small but effective nature of the LED lights also act as a huge positive effect. The availability in different colors and also in multicolored lights has made it more popular. Nowadays, many stadiums and arenas are also using led lighting. The lights are being used in search lights and torch lights also. The recent popularity of LED lights are mainly due to the increased realization of the power saving and also the long durability of LED lights over the traditional fluorescent lights.
What are LED lights?
An LED or Light Emitting Diode is basically a p-n junction diode which is connected in reverse biasing in the circuit, i.e., the positively biased end of the diode with negative end of the circuit and vice versa. On passing current through the diode, light is emitted and on varying the voltage, the color of the light emitted changes. So it is a real advantage of using the LEDs.
The advantages of LED over the other lighting methods
There are a lot of advantages of using led lighting over the other lighting techniques. The main advantage is power saving. The LED lights consume very less power compared to the fluorescent lights, so it is always a smarter choice over the fluorescent lights. The main factor is LED lights are much brighter at a given wattage than the fluorescent lights. The small size of LEDs also allows it to be used in various places. A large number of LEDs can be used to give a better lighting. The focus of the LED lights is also much better than the fluorescent lights. So, they can be used as search lights also. Due to the multiple coloring, the led lighting can also be used in toys. The LEDs are mainly in solid state, so they can withstand much more shocks and jerks than the fluorescent lights which are very delicate. So, the durability of the LED lights is much more. Apart from the advantages, the LEDs require a high first installation charge during their setup.
Various applications
The led lighting finds a lot of applications in the scientific and the latest technological instruments in the laboratory. Thanks to the low wattage required and the good durability.
