The Gift that Keeps on Giving…for 200,000 hours

What's so great about LED Christmas trees? Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are made from tiny chips that are very similar to the ones used in computers. The chips convert electricity into light without using filaments or bulbs. Instead, the versatile chips are enclosed in plastic that can be molded into countless sizes and shapes.

In addition, LEDs can last 200,000 hours—I think that about covers the rest of your Christmases. Imagine never having to change pesky bulbs on tangles strings of lights again! LEDS are so reliable that they are taking the place of light bulbs in a variety of applications that are a standard in all of our everyday lives. Just a few of these applications include:

  • Traffic lights
  • Brake lights
  • Emergency exit signs
