Choosing the right type of LED light for your home and office can be a daunting task. With so many different types of LED light bulbs available, it can be difficult to know which one is best for your needs. Standard LED light bulbs, Can LED light bulbs, Track LED light bulbs, and Tube LED light bulbs are all popular options that offer different benefits.

LED stands for "light emitting diode" and is a semi-conductor device that turns electricity into light. 

There are three types of LED technology that are used in LED lights -- DIP, SMD and COB.

Dual In-Line Package (DIP) LEDs

Surface Mounted Diode (SMD) LEDs

Chip on Board (COB) LEDs

LED Brightness and Wattage

A 7- to 9-watt LED bulbs are equivalent to 40-watt incandescent bulbs (450 lumens emitted)

A 9- to 12-watt LED bulbs are equivalent to a 60-watt incandescent bulbs (800 lumens emitted)

A 12- to 15-watt LED bulbs are equivalent to a 75-watt incandescent bulbs (1100 lumens emitted)

A 16- to 20-watt LED bulbs are equivalent to a 100-watt incandescent bulbs (1600 lumens emitted)

LED Color Temperature

Kelvins (K) measure light temperature, or the color the light appears.

LED lighting technology is becoming increasingly popular in both commercial and residential settings due to its numerous benefits and advantages. LED lights are energy-efficient, long-lasting, cost-effective, environmentally friendly and require minimal maintenance. They also provide superior illumination compared to traditional lighting technologies such as incandescent bulbs. Moreover, LED lights come in a variety of colors and styles which make them the perfect choice for any setting. With all these benefits, it is no wonder that LED lighting technology has become the preferred choice for many businesses and households around the world.
