Default The Mysteries of LED Lights Revealed

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://news.cnet.com/8301-11128_3-20084337-54/five-things-you-didnt-know-about-led-lightbulbs/' target='_blank'>http://news.cnet.com/8301-11128_3-2...led-lightbulbs/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"If you've heard about residential LED lightbulbs, you probably know that they're energy-efficient, last a long time, and are pricier than other lightbulb technologies. I've been using LED lights in my home for several months now, and overall the transition has been good. As you consider your lighting options, here a few things that you might not know about LEDs."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1313120093.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>I've never thought of lighting as being a "geeky" affair, but like all things based on modern technology, there's a bit of geekery to be had. For instance, did you know that the reason why bugs are attracted to traditional lightbulbs is because they emit UV light? Most - though not all - LED lights emit no UV light, thus not attracting bugs. And the lifespan of Compact Fluorescent bulbs can be reduced if you're turning them off after less than 15 minutes. News to me!</p>

I finally found some CFLs at the Home Depot that don't suck and they are already becoming obsolete. Well hopefully by the time they burn out LED bulbs will be less than $30 a pop.
