LED lights offer significant advantages over incandescent and fluorescent bulbs, and I’ve listed a few important ones here.
1. Low Power Requirements: The best LED desk lamps have a big advantage over competitors in terms of low power requirements. As it stands right now, LED desk lights use far less power than incandescent bulbs. They are roughly on par with fluorescent bulbs, but as the technology improves that seems likely that LED lamps will surpass fluorescents soon too. Every little bit counts, and a low drawing LED light for your desk or office can make a big difference over time.
2. Long Life: LED bulbs have an incredible lifespan. They don’t have the same filaments that incandescents have, and they don’t create a great deal of heat, so that means they last a very long time. An LED light bulb is more expensive, true, but it also lasts 10 to 20 times longer than a conventional light source.
3. High Light Quality: The light produced by the best LED desk lamps is among the best out there. Since LEDs are easy to alter, you can get both warm and cold light from them, and there is no ‘flicker’ like you get from fluorescent light tubes.
4. Compact and Portable: Light emitting diodes are pretty small, each one can be as small as a grain of rice. That means that a desk light with LED bulbs can be really small, compact and attractive. Why clutter up your precious desk space with a huge lamp? Keep it low profile with one of these guys.
