Lighting EVER LED spot light

The use of LED has evolved over time, mostly due to the creativity of many people and of course, because of the advancement of technology. LED is no more limited to the red dots we see in various home appliances. They have come to take in many forms as well.

One form that it has evolved into is the LED Spot light. These types of floodlights use white LED that are extremely bright and powerful. Their illumination can be compared to that of the daylight. It can easily replace car headlamps when it comes to that function.

How do you make your own LED Spot light? The answer is simple. You just have to buy a LED floodlight that has its own reflector. You will then have to attach wires to the bulb. Usually this will be at the side and at the tip of the base. Just be sure that you do not damage the bulb when soldering the wires. Hide the wires behind the bulb and cover them with tape. Finally find a PVC pipe where the bulb will fit in.

Seal the bulb in it as such that it does not move around. Let the wires go through the pipe, letting them come out at the other end. Also, attach a toggle switch, drill a hole in the PVC pipe and seal the switch there. Place a snap connector at the end of the wire of your LED Spot light and buy some ‘AA’ batteries. If you have done your connections right, your new light should work fine and illuminate the whole place no matter how dark it is.

Decrease Your Electric Bill

You get the mail, you open the electric bill and it is rising every month. One solution to the cost is using LED spotlight bulbs that decrease the amount of energy required to light your home. While the older bulbs had to be changed frequently, you get the added benefit of changing the new ones only every few years.

It’s no hassle to change a bulb on a lamp for example, but for those high stair landings, or ceiling fans, it is. Using one of the high quality spotlights is the perfect solution. Change is required every few years or even longer.

These new bulbs use only 3.75 watts of power for the 120 Volt bulb and 4.7 watts for the 12 Volt size. You make led spot lightfewer trips to the store, and fewer trips up the ladder and when you make that dreaded trip to the mailbox, it won’t alarm you half as much to see the bill. You win.

Ceiling fans, stair landings, over the front door bulbs can all be changed infrequently with these bulbs. Make sure you never install a 12 Volt bulb in a 120 Volt socket as it will damage the bulb. Choose correctly, enjoy the lighting and save time and money.

Going green is important to you and everyone on the planet. Use these bulbs that contain no mercury and no lead. You will help the ecological system at the same time you save your own hard earned money.

Transform your garden into a night time fairyland with these soft white or white LED bulbs. Show off your landscaping night and day. You get 50,000 hours of use from each outdoor bulb. Enjoy your home and also consider the protective factor light adds to your home.
