Many sites have been doing head-to-head tests of various LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs coming on the market. However, I'm often asked where someone can find just a "regular person review" on how LEDs stack up against CFLs (compact fluorescent lights) and the soon-to-be-phased-out incandescents without getting too buried in stats on lumens, kelvins, wattage, and the rest of the jargon that typically comes along with in-depth discussions of these different technologies.Check out this presentation for more details of LED Bulbs vs. CFL Bulbs vs. Incandescent Bulbs

Comparison of LED Bulbs, CFL Bulbs and Incandescent Bulbs

  1. 1. http://www.lightingever.com LED Bulbs vs. CFL Bulbs vs. Incandescent Bulbs
  2. 2. LED Bulbs • “LED” is the abbreviation of “light-emitting diode”. It is a semiconductor light source which could emit light when a current moves through it. • An LED bulb is a lighting bulb that uses an LED chip to convert electronic energy into light. Lighting Ever® E27 10W LED Bulb
  3. 3. CFL Bulbs • CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) is a fluorescent lamp, using a tube curved or folded to fit into the base of the bulb which has a compact electronic ballast in it. Philips® Tornado Spiral energy saving bulb
  4. 4. Incandescent Bulbs • An incandescent bulb is an electric light that emits light with a filament wire heated to a high temperature until it glows by consuming electrical energy. • The incandescent bulb must be the earliest electric bulb in human history; however, energy experts claim that the incandescent bulb should be replaced by other more energy efficient bulbs and become a thing of the past.
  5. 5. Energy Efficiency LED Bulbs (Lighting Ever® E27 10W LED Bulb ) CFL Bulbs (Philips® Tornado Spiral energy saving bulb) Incandescent Bulbs Lifespan 50000 hours 8000 hours 1200 hours Luminous efficacy 81 lm/w 62 lm/w 13.5 lm/w Watts of electricity used per hour 10 watts 12watts 60 watts
  6. 6. Environmental Impact Environmental Impact LED Bulbs (Lighting Ever® E27 10W LED Bulb ) CFL Bulbs (Philips® Tornado Spiral energy saving bulb) Incandescent Bulbs Contains the TOXIC Mercury No Yes No RoHS Compliant Yes No (Because of the containing of Mercury) Yes
  7. 7. Light Output LED Bulbs (Lighting Ever® E27 10W LED Bulb ) CFL Bulbs (Philips® Tornado Spiral energy saving bulb) Incandescent Bulbs Lumens Watts Watts Watts 450 6-7 9-13 40 800 10 13-15 60 1100 12 18-25 75
  8. 8. Other Important Facts LED Bulbs (Lighting Ever® E27 10W LED Bulb ) CFL Bulbs (Philips® Tornado Spiral energy saving bulb) Incandescent Bulbs Sensitivity to low temperatures None Yes Can only work finely between -10° F & 120° F Some Sensitive to humidity No Yes Some On/off Cycling No Effect Yes Some Turns on instantly Yes No Yes Durability Very Durable (LEDs can handle jarring and bumping) Not very Durable (glass can break easily) Not Very Durable (glass can break easily)
