In the beginning Edison created the light bulb.
And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And CREE said, Let there be LEDs; and there was light.
LEDs have come a long way in a short time. Don’t confuse the current generation of high output LEDs with the cheap battery powered and solar crap you can buy. These 6500K CREEs pack a real punch.
And yes, since you ask, I am a bit of an LED nerd.
