August 4, 2010


Saving the energy for this world  and making a greener world .

I am partnered with LED Savings Solutions; a ground breaking program that can provide lighting upgrades with light emitting diode (LED) lights that reduce electricity demand by up to 80 percent, allowing a business or property owner to reduce costs immediately as well as a means to reduce a facility’s carbon footprint. The partnership offers companies of all sizes a tremendous opportunity to save money, go green, and become sponsor on my race car — all without spending a dime.

LED Saving Solutions has created the ground breaking “Savings Share” program that gives the property owners and managers a $0 start up cost advantage since they only pay for the cost of the retrofit from a portion of the actual money saved each month. The program is cash flow positive for companies from the start.

GREENandSAVE and I are proud to offer sponsorship exposure to companies that initiate the LED lighting retrofits. You will receive 5% of the purchase of the bulbs in vehicle branding and press release marketing with my race program.

The future household lighting is LED light bulbs! The time coming……..

July 22, 2010


The future household lighting is LED light bulbs ,The campaign begun and thounds of families take part in this game.Great and large sum of money for traditional bulb,too much heat ……Now the new LED bulb light is coming ……….



When designed properly, an LED circuit will approach 80% efficiency, which means 80% of the electrical energy is converted to light energy.

The future of household lighting will soon be the wide spread adoption and use of white LED light bulbs. Though the present market for finished white LED products is geared mainly towards enthusiasts and early-adopters, the efficiency and cost effectiveness of LED lighting systems will drive demand for more affordable LED lights. Opto-electronics is an exciting area and we predict, that in the near future, white LED lighting applications will be powerful and cheap enough to replace incandescent lighting for everyday use in our homes, in street lights, outdoor signs, and offices.

Advantages of LED Lights

The operational life of current white LED lamps is 100,000 hours. This is 11 years of continuous operation, or 22 years of 50% operation. The long operational life of an led lamp is a stark contrast to the average life of an incandescent bulb, which is approximately 5000 hours. If the lighting device needs to be embedded into a very inaccessible place, using LEDs would virtually eliminate the need for routine bulb replacement.

There is no comparison between the cost of LED lights vs. traditional incandescent options. With incandescent bulbs, the true cost of the bulb is the cost of replacement bulbs and the labor expense and time needed to replace them. These are significant factors, especially where there are a large number of installed bulbs. For office buildings and skyscrapers, maintenance costs to replace bulbs can be enormous. These issues can all be virtually eliminated with the LED option.

The key strength of LED lighting is reduced power consumption. When designed properly, an LED circuit will approach 80% efficiency, which means 80% of the electrical energy is converted to light energy. The remaining 20% is lost as heat energy. Compare that with incandescent bulbs which operate at about 20% efficiency (80% of the electrical energy is lost as heat). In real money terms, if a 100 Watt incandescent bulb is used for 1 year, with an electrical cost of 10 cents/kilowatt hour, $88 will be spent on electricity costs. Of the $88 expense, $70 will have been used to heat the room, not light the room. If an 80% efficient LED system had been used, the electricity cost would be $23 per year – there would be a cost savings of $65 on electricity during the year. Realistically the cost savings would be higher as most incandescent light bulbs blow out within a year and require replacements whereas LED light bulbs can be used easily for a decade without burning out.

Our white LED lights currently come in packages which contain 36 or 48 LED lamps and can be adapted for use with any power supply or casing. Our clusters allow for conversion to operate from all common caving batteries, e.g. FX5/Kirby pack down to two AA cells, in case portability is needed. We have produced a seven-LED cluster light source as an alternative to low wattage light bulbs and a possible portable light source.

The main limitation to the adoption of white LED lighting as a lighting standard is the current high cost of led bulbs. Although the cost keeps going down, LED light bulbs are still expensive. A single AC bulb (17 LED), replacing a 25 watt incandescent, will cost about $40. Although LED’s are expensive, the cost is recouped over time and in energy cost savings. Factor in that it is significantly cheaper to maintain led lights, the best value comes from commercial use where maintenance and replacement costs are expensive. Traffic lights and outdoor signs, for example, are being switched over to LED’s in many cities. Smaller arrays, such as those in flashlights, headlamps and small task lights are great for specialty and outdoor use. LED based automotive headlights are current being used in high end luxury cars.

It will be interesting to see what developments are coming for more residential applications of LED lights. LED lighting technology has been researched and developed for the past two decades and we are beginning to see practical applications from this work. There is already wide spread use of LED traffic signs and LED headlights where a premium is placed on a reliable light source that is cheaper and less labor intensive to maintain. We in the industry are certain that tomorrows LED lights will last longer and consume even less power than todays energy efficient bulbs. LED lighting will be used to replace virtually every type of light, bulb, and lamp that is currently in use.

Why Use LED Bulbs?

July 9, 2010

The Human is entering a  greener world of less pollution,less heat ,less energy.Today the souces is becoming severe thing ,The human explore too much from the nature ….So the  LED eletronic technology is coming to being …..

LED spotlight bulb

Since 1983 LEDtronics has been the leader in designing and manufacturing environmentally friendly low power usage, long life LED bulbs and LED lamps as direct replace to incandescent bulbs. We satisfy our customers by delivering LED lighting solutions and products of consistently high quality. We also strive to exceed our customer’s expectations in terms of responsiveness with new designs to meet their future lighting requirements.

Our rugged LED bulbs last 100,000 hours, over ten years, which greatly reduces maintenance and replacement costs because LEDs are virtually immune to shock and vibration. Our LED bulbs use a fraction of the electricity (LED lamps use 80% to 90% less energy then the incandescent lamps they replace) necessary to light an incandescent bulb; they significantly reduce power consumption to help achieve energy conservation goals. LED bulbs also remain cool so there is no excessive heat buildup, which can influence building air conditioning costs. At LEDtronics we pride ourselves on being known as the world’s leading supplier of innovative direct incandescent replacement LED Bulbs, lamps, clusters and arrays. As you are aware, energy conservation and lowered electrical costs have become a way of life in the 21st century.

Why LED Bulbs:

  • Last an average of 100,000 hours (or about ten years). 50,000 hours for White LEDs
  • Withstand shocks, vibrations, frequent switching and temperature extremes that rapidly incapacitate fragile incandescent lamps.
  • Reduces maintenance and replacement costs
  • Are 10 to 50 times more energy-efficient, thus reducing your operating costs by up to 90%.
  • Produce little to no heat, cool to the touch, so they are safer then traditional lighting products

The human no need to hesitate to USE LED products ,Use LED lighting is the best way …….

why choose LED car light?

July 3, 2010

When we buy a car or motor car ,we want to make the back light  bright.Flexible Grill LED Strip, Motorcycle, Car Lights is your best choice.LED  car strips light put out a minimum amount of heat, so there’s no fire risk, and they’ll fit in a variety of places: Around the front grilleUnder foot-wells ,On wheel wells ,In the trunk ,Under the hood ,On headlights ,Along the dash,Wherever the heck you want them to go! The only limit is your imagination.


I have some LED motorcycle brake light enhancements on my other motorcycle, a ’94 BMW K75, and I’m pleased with the way they’ve been working (see the article “Improving the Brake Light Visibility of a BMW K75” on the wBW  Technical Articles page).

LED’s draw very little current; are very bright; they cycle on and off extremely fast compared to incandescent bulbs; and they have a very long service life.  This is important for motorcycle applications.  They are also much more resistant to failure from vibration, which makes them potentially useful on motorcycles.
The downside is that the LED lights throw light that is very directional.  They must be viewed at almost a direct angle in order to realize their increased brightness (more on this later).

By the way, did I say they can be very expensive?  The LEDtronics 1156 replacement in red costs $48.50, and it cost me $5.35 for shipping to the east coast via UPS ground.  Yep, I’m embarrassed! But hey, at least the money was spent in the spirit of webBikeWorld knowledge sharing….

Comparison of LED brake lightsI read an article that was linked from the LEDtronics website that was written by the owner of a Yamaha R1 about his use of an LED light replacement.   The owner was searching for a brighter LED light to replace the Asian-sourced LED unit on his bike’s custom tail treatment.

It is apparent (confirmed by other sources) that some lower-quality LED lights from overseas can produce very low levels of light, enough to make them fairly useless for brake light applications.

The owner was pleased with the brightness of the LEDtronics replacement light, and there are some photos on the site that illustrate some of the differences between his stock LED light and the LEDtronics 1157. I was convinced that a lighting replacement would do the same for my R65.

So I eventually ordered an 1156 replacement after communicating with an engineer at LEDtronics about which color light would be appropriate.  He assured me that the red LED is the one to use for brake light applications.

The LED light is differently shaped than the 21 watt GE 1156 long life that I use (see photo left), but it fit in the receptacle of the R65’s taillight with no problem.  The shape of the LEDtronics light may be an issue on some bikes though — see the dimensions in the schematic above to determine if it will fit for your application.

I was anxious to try out the LED to see what difference it made.  I assumed it would be noticeably brighter than the 1156 bulb I was using — I was psyched up and thinking it would blast anyone to the rear with shimmering cascades of brilliant light!  But as soon as I applied the brakes, I realized this was not to be.

Although the LEDtronics LED light cycles on very quickly, it was immediately obvious that the amount of light it put out was nowhere near the incandescent.  It is much more directional, and it doesn’t have enough “side throw” to bounce the light around in the plastic chrome housing and out the back of the taillight lens.

I took some photos of the light from straight on  at brake light level and also from looking down at the brake light (Photos 4 and 5), where the directionality is much more noticeable.  Both sets of photos were taken from about 5 feet back, and photos 4 and 5 were taken from a camera lens height of 5′ 2″.

It’s hard to get good photos of lighting, but I think you can see that the photos illustrate that the LED light in Photo 3 is much more directional and doesn’t fill up the brake light lens with light when compared to the 1156 incandescent bulb in Photo 2.

I think the reason for this is that out of the 24 individual LED lights that make up the LEDtronics unit, 16 are oriented directly towards the back and only 8 of them are oriented radially around the sides.  This limits the amount of light that can be reflected off the chrome light housing.

Photos 4 and 5 compare the lights from above. Again, I think this illustrates what my eye sees — the LED light is more directional and doesn’t throw the same quality and “volume” of light that the incandescent bulb does.

So, the bottom line is this: the only benefit I see of using the LED light in this application is that the light cycles on (and turns off) immediately upon application of the brakes.  LEDtronics claims that this can reduce reaction time at 65 mph by 15 feet.  But I don’t think the tradeoff in brightness is worth it.

By the way, I have nothing at all against LEDtronics or their claims.  They have been honest and they seem to be a decent company to do business with.  My opinion is that unless your brake or taillight were specifically engineered for LED lights, the old-fashioned incandescent may still be the way to go.  My search continues….

what are the Benefits Of LED Light Bulbs?

May 27, 2010

Benefits of LED  bulb are a lot ,it can last for a long time ,energy saving ,  environment friendly and stable.

LED bulb light

LED bulb light

Benefits of LED bulbs and led lights are extensive. Here are a few reasons why you should be switching your old fluorescent, incandescent and halogen bulbs to a much more efficient LED bulb: 1. Each LED bulbs lasts an average of 100,000 hours (or about ten years).

 2. LED bulbs withstand shocks, vibrations, frequent switching and temperature extremes that rapidly incapacitate fragile incandescent lamps.

 3. LED bulbs are 10 to 50 times more energy-efficient, thus reducing your operating costs by up to 90%.

 4. LED’s produce sharp, vibrant colours… even pure white. Response times are 100 to 1,000 times faster than incandescent bulbs so there’s no flicker — just pure dramatic light. 5. LED bulbs are closer to the colour of daylight — which new studies suggest is good for staying alert. 6. Versatility. Every day, LED’s are replacing incandescent lamps all around the world. The only limit is your imagination.

why LED’s are the best and brightest light bulbs of the future?

May 27, 2010

 In future ,which light will the most brightest and best light bulbs ?Here we have answers that is LED’s bulb lights.

In researching this blog post I’ve learned much about LED light bulbs that is worth shouting from the rooftops, and have certainly changed my views on lighting options for my home. Did you know that LED light bulbs now perform on a par with incandescent light bulbs as far as quality and consistency of light goes? Fantastic. That would mean nothing if they didn’t also use around 10x less energy to produce the same amount of light, which they do.

But we have already switched from incandescent to compact fluorescent light bulbs in our homes. They’re also energy saving bulbs aren’t they? Why bother to switch again? On this count, firstly LEDs last 5x longer than compact fluorescents, that’s 50x longer than old-fashioned incandescents. And secondly, toxic mercury is used to produce compact fluorescents. This is not a problem when the bulbs are recycled correctly, but with limited facilities and in many cases the inadequate advice provided about disposal of the light bulbs, there is a potential for the dangerous leakage of mercury vapour in our homes and in the transport of the bulbs to landfill. LED light bulbs don’t contain any hazardous substances, and are very durable, so are unlikely to become damaged if dropped.

EarthLED provide direct replacement bulbs for your existing light fittings and lamps in a number of different formats, the most powerful and stylish of which is the XR series. The XR-10 uses only 10 Watts but pumps out the equivalent amount of light as a 100W incandescent whilst being an objet d’art in it’s own right, or it’s little brother the XR-5 that comes at a lower cost and with a lower output, but is still a very stylish light bulb.

And while the XR series perform best while in a downward facing position or directed at an object, EarthLED also have a solution for table lamps and light fittings with lamp shades with the CL series. These are dispersion LED bulbs that cast a natural light pattern like traditional incandescents. They are available in a 3W and a 5W version (3W is comparable to a 45W incandescent, and the 5W is comparable to a traditional 75W).

Finally, the GL series of LED light bulbs from EarthLED provides the equivalent of a 50W light bulb at an affordable price.

While LED light bulbs may seem expensive at first glance, EarthLED provide some figures on their website to put this into perspective:

Can I use LED lightbar outdoors?

May 26, 2010

You may ask can i use the LED lightbar outdoors?If it come with rain ,How should we do it?if I  want to use lightbar outdoors ,what shall I do ?

LED lightbar

You’ll need to do two things:

Put a shroud over it to protect it from sunlight.
The plastic is a hardened acrylic and is UV resistant.
They’re fairly impact resistant and will take a fair knock but we recommend you permanently shade them from the sun.

For wet or very humid conditions, sealing of the lightbar is essential.
Our trials have shown that moisture will appear inside the bar if not sealed in dry conditions.
Pick a dry day and put some silicone just around the end joins.
The wire assembly is waterproof but those tube ends need sealing for use in watery conditions.

The 8~30vDC operating range (for the cool white) is great for those folk who regularly run their solar battery down to near flat.
This light will operate without dimming whilst the rest of your lights go down to candle brightness.

LED Lighting is the most Pays Off as a Smart Investment?

May 24, 2010

As of This week, stock in U.S. LED manufacturer Cree rose 10% in one day.when investment bank UBS boosted its rating on the maker of chips used in LED lighting. UBS pointed out that LED lighting is a fast-growing industry. Cree is constantly innovating and producing state of the art LED Lighting.  Other LED manufacturers include Philips Lumileds (a subsidiary of Philips), Osram, Epitar and Toyota Gosei.


The LED industry is growing and consolidating simultaneously. The LED Industry is entering a fast growth stage in 2010 even with the downturn of the economy.Last year, the lighting market was estimated to be $102 billion annually, going up to $130 billion by next year.  Toshiba announced that it is abandoning incandescent lightbulbs and manufacturing only LEDs. h

Philips has been aggressively acquiring smaller LED companies. In recent years, Philips acquired Genlyte for $2.7 Billion, TIR Systems for $75 million and Color Kinetics for $791 million to get a competitive advantage.  Cree acqured COTCO to take advantage of COTC’s better strategic position in China.

Cree is frequently rumored to be a takeover candidate of Philips or GE, which may account for some of the growth of its stock price from 13 to 76 in the last year or so.

Last month, PowerSecure International, another North Carolina company, paid over $4 million to buy a major stake in a smaller LED lighting company called Innovative Electronic Solutions Lighting, and got the option to buy the rest of the company for $10 million.

PowerSecure saw their revenue grow 700% last year despite the great global recession.

PowerSecure also bought the part of EfficientLights, another LED light manufacturer that it already owned a majority stake in.

LEDs are increasingly seen as the future of electric lighting. Incandescent and fluorescent bulbs will become obsolete because LED lights are vastly superior – long-lasting, up to 90% less energy use, environmentally friendly.

According to industry estimates, LEDs represent a potential $30 billion to $50 billion in annual sales.

Why LED lighting produce less heat ?

May 24, 2010

Traditional lighting  produce a lot heat ,but LED lighting produce little hot ,So it is popular with all  users.

There’s always something to complain about isn’t there? Apparently, one of the main benefits of using LEDs in the millions of streetlights around the U.S. is turning out to be it’s unforseen downfall. Or at least an oversight, now that the weather has gotten chillier.

Never mind that the LED  lights will last years without replacing, not to mention the work it takes to get a guy in a cherry picker to replace it, and the inconvenience of having to stop at every broken light. The fact that it uses 1/10th of the energy of regular light bulbs, saving the city thousands of dollars a month in electricity (Wisconsin saves $750,000 a year) also means that not a lot of heat is being produced by the lights. Heat that would generally melt the snow and ice that would accumulate during the snowy season. This has resulted in accidents, even a death, at the hands of “malfunctioning” traffic lights. And ergo you could say that LED lights KILL PEOPLE.

LED spotlight bulb

Ok maybe that’s a stretch. But who would have thought that excess waste heat from inefficient bulbs would be a good thing? I guess it depends on the environment, but I can totally relate. My PC tower definitely keeps my room a degree or two warmer than normal, which is a benefit now that the weather is finally dropping below freezing. And I remember back in college when I’d turn up the Wal-mart halogen floor lamps all the way up to heat up our apartment. I guess in this case, they might need to add a heating element to the lights. I have a great solution though. Two actually.

  1. Assuming the average light stays mostly on green and red for at least a minute or two, but only on the yellow for a few seconds each cycle, then the heat generated from an incandescent bulb in the yellow slot could be just enough to keep the light free of ice and snow without wasting too much energy. This would be the “cheapest” solution and they enough stock from the lights they removed before to last many years into the future.
  2. Retrofit a heating element in the housing so that it warms the lights/lens and keeps snow/ice from accumulating. They could have this set on a switch that turns them all on when the weather gets too cold, rather than having it on 24/7. This would be pricier, but would probably save more energy and you’re not going back to incandescents.
  3. Do nothing. The likelihood of the right conditions for the wet snow and wind to be the right consistency to stick to the the lights is very low. Have crews go around and airblast the snow off of lights that are blocked. And have everyone be smart enough to know that a non-working light means you should treat it as a stop sign. The latter is probably the hardest part to implement.

In a word,LED lighting can provide a good solution for not only save energy but aslo produce less heat ,It is good to our earth and climate.

If LED bulbs can be an investment tool?

May 12, 2010

Everyone KNOWS that LED bulbs save money. With the appearance of LED bulbs in more and more places ( Philips LED bulbs just popped up in Home Depot), the general public is starting to become more aware of the products that are available, but the consensus is they’re STILL too expensive.

LED RGB Bulb light

The truth is what few are saying is that it really doesn’t make sense financially to switch out to LEDs if you’re using them less than 8 hours a day.

Compared to a “traditional investment”, if you are only using an LED bulb 6 hours per day, you’re making a measly 5% return on your investment – i.e. if you spend $10 for the LED bulb, you’ll “make” $0.50 per year(in savings).

The numbers get really interesting when you starting getting to 12 hours usage per day and more. In this example, we plugged the numbers in for California ($0.15 /kWh) into our trusty LED energy evaluation calculator at 16 hours usage a day and the average return on investment is an astounding 76%! – i.e. if you spend $10 for the LED bulb, you’ll “make” $7 per year (in savings).
