Light emitting diodes, or LEDs, are quickly replacing older style lights in many recreational applications because of key advantages they hold over traditional lighting technology. Here's our top three reasons why you should choose LED.
LEDs are tough. With no brittle glass bulbs to break or fragile filaments to shake loose, LEDs are very tolerant of impact and vibration. This, along with their excellent weather resistance, makes them a great choice for headlights and other outdoor applications.
When it comes to bulb life, LEDs are in a league of their own, lasting forty times longer than conventional incandescent bulbs. Many of our light kits are rated for 50,000+ hours of life, meaning you may never have to change a bulb.
Anyone who's ever been burned by an incandescent light bulb knows that they can get HOT! Their high temperatures makes them a fire hazard and a safety risk to young children. LEDs operate at much safer temperatures, preventing burns, and contain no toxic mercury like that found in fluorescent bulbs. LEDs also lack the brittle glass found in conventional bulbs, and so will not shatter if accidentally dropped.
These advantages are why Recreation Pro is proud to offer quality LED technology to our customers. If you're ready to make the switch to LEDs, be sure to take a look at our selection of golf cart lights, available for Club Car, Yamaha, and EZ-GO carts, as well as our RV lights for awnings or interiors.
