6. Design Flexibility

LEDs can be combined in any shape to produce highly efficient illumination.

7. Operational in Extreme Temperatures

LEDs are ideal for operation under cold and low outdoor temperature settings .

8. Light Dispersement

LED is designed to focus its light and can be directed to a specific location without the use of an external reflector, achieving a higher application efficiency than conventional lighting.

9. Instant Lighting and Frequent Switching

LED lights brighten up immediately and has great advantages for infrastructure projects such as traffic lights.

10. Low-voltage

A low-voltage power supply is sufficient for LED illumination. This makes it easy to use LED lighting in outdoor settings by connecting an external solar-energy source.
