More reliable, compact LED lamps

  • Industry
  • News
  • Research
LED lamps offer a theoretical lifespan of around 50,000 hours of operation. In actual practice, however, LED lifespans are much shorter. This is due to the LEDs’ electronic driver and—in particular—the electrochemical condenser driver that transforms the high-voltage alternating current that comes off the grid into the low-voltage direct current that powers the LED. Researchers […] >>
