A regular "incandescent" bulb produces light via a thin
filament of wire (actually a tiny coil) that glows white hot at
thousands of degrees Fahrenheit. LEDs are solid-state devices--a cousin
of the transistor--that produce light as a byproduct of electrons
"dropping" orbital levels.
LED VS. INCANDESCENT: 5 reasons to buy an LED flashlight over a regular incandescent flashlight:
1) An LED will usually last for tens-of-thousands of hours. In regular use, it shouldn't burn out.
2) White LEDs are so "white" that they make incandescent bulbs look dull yellow by comparison.
3) LEDs tend to be more rugged than incandescent bulbs,
4) LEDs don't eat batteries quite as fast as equivalent-light incandescent bulbs
5) LED flashlights tend to stay bright until they abruptly die
only disadvantage is that they cost more, though this up-front cost may
be ameliorated over time since you should never need to buy another
Whiter-than-White--our eyes perceive white light with a
slight blue tinge as being whiter than true white. White LEDs tend to
cater to this bias, so we see their light as being REALLY white. The end
result is that LED bulbs make incandescent bulbs look dull yellow by
Ruggedness--Some LEDs employ two thin wires that
connect their substrate to the leads, but the LED's plastic body holds
these wires immobile. Common sense would indicate that these two wires
are probably less prone to damage than the thin, unsupported coiled
filament in a regular incandescent bulb that glows at 3000+ degrees
Fahrenheit. You have never managed to break a Maglite LED bulb, though you've dropped one several times on grass, carpet, and concrete. Finally,
LED bulbs are used in "tactical lights" that are attached to handguns
without the rubber buffering rings that incandescent bulbs required.
Duration--When put fresh Duracells in
it and also in a regular Maglite and turned them both on. Technically,
both lasted for 24 hours, but at the end of that period the regular
Maglite's beam was an unusable dull orange glow while the LED flashlight
still produced a beam you could read by. Furthermore, after letting the
batteries rest for a day, when you turned the LED flashlight back on and it
burned for another 6 hours!
Maglites have enjoyed a well-deserved reputation as being
quality-built flashlights. There are more expensive gee-whiz flashlights
out there like the amazing 4Sevens Quark, but Maglites are generally
recognized as your basic, solid "working man's" flashlight. Keep fresh
batteries in them and they'll never let you down. On the offchance you
buy a lemon that fails after a few years, rest assured that Maglite
honors its lifetime warranty.
