  2. Long Lifetime – 50,000 hours or more if properly engineered
  3. Rugged – LED’s are also called “Solid State Lighting (SSL) as they are made of solid material with no filament or tube or bulb to break
  4. No warm-up period – LED’s light instantly – in nanoseconds
  5. Not affected by cold temperatures – LED’s “like” low temperatures and will startup even in subzero weather
  6. Directional – With LED’s you can direct the light where you want it, thus no light is wasted
  7. Excellent Color Rendering – LED’s do not wash out colors like other light sources such as fluorescents, making them perfect for displays and retail applications
