An LED (Light Emitting Diode) is an electronic semiconductor device of a particular material composition which, when current passes through it, gives off light. The first practical LED to produce light with a spectrum visible to the human eye, a red LED, was discovered in 1962. These were red LEDs used for indicators and alphanumeric displays. Since then blue, green and violet light emitting LEDs have been developed and research has concentrated on achieving lower costs with higher light output and efficiency. In order to create the white light needed for general lighting the LEDs are surrounded by phosphor materials that transform the monochromatic light from a blue or near-UV LED to broad-spectrum white light. The development and sale of LED substrates, phosphors and encapsulants are a key focus for Verbatims parent company, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation.
The technology behind each Verbatim LED lamp is focused on efficiency, comfort and respect for the environment. LEDs by their nature are more efficient in converting electricity into light. They also have a very long lifetime; less waste is produced, reducing the impact on the environment. The combination of the comforting light that LED lamps produce and the peace of mind which comes with caring about the environment in which we live contribute to the Verbatim lighting experience. All Verbatim LED lamps produce a comforting warm light. They have modern, yet timeless designs and provide a direct replacement of classic incandescent or halogen lamps incorporating popular bases including E27, E14, GU5.3 and GU10.
They are all energy saving, long life, shock and vibration proof and emit no ultraviolet or infrared radiation.They are also all equipped with TCS (Temperature Control System) to avoid overheating and to ensure a full product lifetime.
