Our LED lights have a lifetime of at least 50,000 hours, probably 80,000 hours and maybe 100,000 hours. A big advantage of LED lights is that they will start at full brightness even in the cold. The life and efficiency of LED lights increases in cold temperatures so these LED lamps are ideal for porches, wood sheds, garages and shops. The life is not affected by the number of On Off cycles making these LED lights well suited to high intermittent use areas such as bathrooms, entrance ways, and pantries. LED is an acronym for Light Emitting Diode, this is a solid state device and so any orientation is acceptable. Polarity doesn't matter for our 12 and 24 volt DC LED's.
Some of our LED lights use large 1 watt LED's. Our LED lights use only the best quality LED's and will keep 90% of their brightness even after 50,000 hours of use..
**Beware of less expensive LED lights, most 1 watt LED's will become dim with only 1000 to 2000 hours of use.
The voltage range on the 12V DC and 24V DC LEDs is 10.5V to 14.5V DC and 22V to 29V DC respectively. The voltage range on our 120V AC and 220VAC LED lights is plus or minus 10%. Polarity does not matter with our LED lights. 12 volt and 24 volt LED lights must not be used on normal 120V or 240V house power.
Only use 12V AC LED lights for track lights if the mains supply is 120V AC and transformed to 12V AC (i.e. if the house or boat is connected to the grid or an inverter). However the 12V DC LED and 24 VDC LED lights can be used for track lighting if your system is a 12 or 24 volt battery system.
Up to 90% more efficient than traditional lighting and contain NO MERCURY!
LED Bulbs are way more energy efficient then incandescent bulbs & completely safe...unlike CFL bulbs!
