An LED stands for Light Emitting Diode (a simple semiconductor that blocks electrical current flow in one direction but allows it in the other direction). LED products are relatively new and have many applications. Some of the benefits of using LED products are that LEDs can be up to 80% more efficient in producing light than standard bulbs, they produce very little heat, they contain no mercury, individually they are very small but together they can create enormous amounts of light making them very versatile.
These LED lighting systems are so efficient that NASA used them on the space shuttle. One of the newest ways LEDs are being used is on LED Flex Strips. These flexible LED strips come in many configurations meaning one can be very bright to light an entire room and another less bright for accent lighting. LED Flex strips can also be made to use any usable wavelength or color that is desired for your home or business project. LEDs can also be made to change colors across a broad spectrum using a RGB Controller. Typically, this is done with tri-chip or 5050 seried LED chips, using three promary colors to create a million color combinations.
