LED Bulb VS Incandescent Bulb

LED Bulb VS Incandescent Bulb The Difference between LED Bulb and Incandescent Bulb

  • 01

    Luminous efficiency

    Because the conversion efficiency of incandescent lamps is about 15 percent, while LED lamps are about 90 percent. That's why A 60W LED is enough to brighten a room, but a few hundred watts is needed for an incandescent. The rest of the electric energy is wasted as heat. So we see a lot of heat from incandescent lamps, and very little heat from LEDS.

  • 02


    Incandescent bulbs emit light by using tungsten wires, which are worn out in the process. When the tungsten wire breaks, the lamp breaks. The theoretical life of an incandescent lamp is about 1,000 hours. LED light emitting principle is more complex, we do not need to know too much, as long as we know that its theoretical life of more than 50,000 hours is enough.

  • 03

    Power consumption

    LED single tube power 0.03-0.06 watts, dc drive, single tube drive voltage 1.5-3.5 VOLTS. Current 15-18 mA fast reaction speed, can be operated at high frequency, used in the same lighting effect, power consumption is 1/10,000 of incandescent lamp.

    Environmental protection

    LED for all solid luminescent body, impact resistance is not easy to break, waste recycling, no pollution to reduce a large number of harmful gases such as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen and carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to improve people's living environment, can be called "green lighting source".

Hot Questions of LED Bulb

  • Why use LED light?

    Efficient and energy saving.

    LED light have such advantages as low-voltage driving, ultralow power, easyin stallation, durable and reliable. The light output power conversion is improved over 98% and saved more energy above 60& to 80% than traditional energy-saving lamps.

  • What's the disadvantages of LED light bulbs?

    Some bad quality LED might have belows problems.

    Heat dissipation problem, if the heat dissipation is not good, it will greatly shorten the life.

     Low-end LED lamps still save less energy than CFLS (cold cathode tube, CCFL)

    And FUTINA high quality LED bulb can help you avoid all this disadvantage.

  • Why LED bulb is expensive than the normal bulb?

    From the manufacture of LED materials to the manufacturing process is much more complicated than incandescent light bulb maker, much too strict, LED to the integration of LED light and needs a complex circuit, and LED rate is high, the hair is cold light, so than incandescent lamp is very energy efficient, under the same intensity of illumination electricity only about 10%.
