Accent LED light bulbs contain clusters of solid state lighting sources called LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) that cast directional light suitable for short distance highlighting of objects or are used for decorative accenting purposes like high-hanging hotel chandeliers. They are offered in a variety of shapes, including frost and clear bent tip chandelier bulbs, reflectors, household bulbs and night lights. The primary benefits of Accent LED light bulbs are extremely long life and low energy usage in areas where accent or decorative lighting is required. (These are not intended for general lighting purposes.) Each bulb in the Accent LED line is rated for up to 20,000 hours or more, thus eliminating frequent and burdensome bulb replacement. Additionally, none of the bulbs in the line use more than 4 watts, which results in substantial energy savings.
Additional benefits of Accent LED light bulbs include no mercury (RoHS compliant/environmentally safe), no UV emissions (no color fading of artwork) and no warm up time for illumination or full brightness.
Pros: Good source of 12 volt light. Brighter than expected with the low amount of watts used. Although the manufacturer does not recommend use of these bulbs in the outdoor environment, they can be used in exterior enclosures. They work great in 12 volt solar panel systems.
Cons: They work great if you can afford them...
Other Thoughts: There is a way to take the control modules from inexpensive outdoor solar yard lights and wire them into 12 volt batteries - charged by 10 watt solar panels. Rather than having tiny lights that run on 1 or 2 AAA or AA batteries, you can have much brighter exterior lights with high amp hour batteries in homemade enclosures. Use your imagination and create nice exterior lights that come on automatically. Set them up and forget about them. They will run at night even when there is not much sun during the day, if you have to right batteries. Sealed batteries that come out of emergency hall lights work great! Make sure that your enclosures are sealed and water tight.
