Lamp Questions

Q: How long will an LED lamp last?
A: The lifetime of a LED lamp is defined in hours. As with all types of lamp, the light output very slowly fades over time. LED lamps do not generally burnout they will still perform after their rated hours  e.g 25,000 hours. The lifetime is the figure     stated when the light output is predicted to drop by a significant amount of the original light output where you may consider a replacement, this is partly due the the slow aging of the parts of the lamps such as refractors and other components.  External factors such as heat, humidity, switching cycles and power supply will affect the lifetime of an LED lamp.

Q: Do LED lamps contain mercury?
A: LED lighting does not need mercury to be used as part of the lighting process, unlike some CFL bulbs. Our LED lamps do not contain mercury or any other hazardous chemicals or materials.

Q: What do "Warm White" & "Cool White" mean?
A:  A Warm White lamp will provide a traditional yellowish colour light, similar to conventional bulbs. This is the most popular choice.  (2700-3000K). A Cool White lamp will provide a modern, clean, bright light, that is slightly blue in colour.(4000-5000K)
