Epistar halogen-type LED lights.

Every once in a while, I get a great idea for an invention. Then I research it and find out that it already exists. Having gone down the invention road before, I am usually happy when this happens. Discovering that you can buy something is much better than spending the thousands and never seeing your dream product exist. So it was when, yet another, halogen lamp burned out in my office. Finding these LED lights on line made me really happy.

We have a couple of halogen track light setups at our house. The bulbs use a lot of electricity, put out  heat and fizzle a lot. They aren't cheap to replace, usually just under $10. This particular LED model is 3 watts instead of a halogen's 35 watts. They burn at a cooler temperature. $8 - free shipping. I like to buy anything hardware-related at our local Ace by Huckleberry's. But there isn't anything like this in my local hardware store.  So I bought three of them on Amazon.   There are cheaper deals there too, but I wanted them shipped fast.

The light they shine takes a little bit of getting used to. It's fairly white compared to the warm tones of the halogen. But, at a tenth of the energy use, I am sold.

It's always wise to get those made of LED lights. I am also looking for halogen type made of LED lights and I also got it online. It's pretty much an energy saver and last long too. It's really worth the prize I paid.

It has always been a little disappointing to find out the invention that I planned to make millions on has already made someone millions. On the otherhand, it means I had a great idea . . . just not soon enough.

LED light is definitely more advantageous to use than other types of lighting. One of its biggest advantages is its lower usage of electricity. LED light doesn’t require a huge amount of electric power to consume and produce the same amount of brightness that other kinds of lighting give. Good decision on replacing your halogen light.
