Q: What are LEDs?
A: LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. LEDs are small solid-state electronic devices which radiate light when small amounts of current are passed through them. LEDs are available in a variety of colors.
Q: Do LEDs burn out?
A: Unlike incandescent or flourescent light sources, LEDs do not burn out. In time the amount of light produced by LEDs gradually reduces. Typically LEDs reduce to half-brightness after 50,000 to 100,000 hours of use.
