At the same time, it is not good for our environment when we often need to change light bulbs and thus throw the old broken out with the waste. This can reduce sharply by purchasing an LED lamp that provides the same brightness, but with a much longer life. If you have the lights on all day, so have a LED bulbs 5 times as long a life as a saving bulbs, and over 30 times as long as halogen bulbs. Additionally emit LED almost no heat, and do not contain mercury.
As stated on abbreviation finder, LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and Light Emitting Device.
At Just More, we cover a huge variety of known quality brands Luxo, Unilux and Alba, in many beautiful designs and colors. So in the range can cover the needs you have for your office, bedroom, living room or children’s room.
If you have questions for the lamps or other of our many products, feel free to contact the customer service on telephone, or send an email.
Catastrophic half-life of a large LED lamp check of the European Union: Over half of the 134 models tested are not EU-compliant – mostly because of incorrect or missing information in the accompanying documents and / or on the packaging, often partly because of the manufacturer’s specifications Deviating measured values. The examinations by the “EEPLIANT” project group are due to be completed in the spring of 2017, but the first legal action against affected suppliers has already been completed.
The “EU” organization “ PROSAFE ” has now published the first sobering results of the major EEPLIANT audit activity, according to which a large number of semiconductor lighting models offered in the EU are not marketable. (PR photo / logos)
Since March of this year, market surveillance authorities in twelve EU Member States – including the Hessian Eichdirektion in Darmstadt – are working on a large-scale review within the “EEPLIANT” project (abbreviation for “Energy Efficiency Compliant Products”) The applicable EU eco-design regulations and guidelines for lamps ? The investigation is expected to be completed by spring 2017; But the mid-term balance now published is catastrophic(pdf download).
The selection of the models was not representative, however, but was carried out “risk-ransacked” according to the company’s own data – with the aim of exposing as many non-EU lamps as possible within the scope of the project. Probably therefore hardly Philips- or Osram / Ledvance- LED-Retrofits are landed in the sample, although even with well-known manufacturers not always everything stands to the best.
The test candidates are still anonymous
Nevertheless, popular models with “significant market relevance” were included in the study, as are typically available in supermarkets, electronics stores, furniture stores or online shops. Among the 134 candidates are 67 with E27 screw base, 25 with GU10 bayonet, 22 with E14 thread, twelve with G5.3 or GU5.3 and nine with G9 pin bases.
The non-profit organization “PROSAFE” (“Product Safety Forum of Europe”) will not publish any information on manufacturers, suppliers or model numbers on request. However, you can even find a lot of LED lamps offered in the EU, which are a strong cause for doubts about their legality (the picture below shows a random selection of China LED lamps, even on a short search on online shopping platforms like Amazon or eBay) Lamps imported illegally to Europe / Photo: M. Stöcken / David Communication). And if you buy such dubious bulbs and then have them measured in the professional lab, it will be fun.
In this respect, the interim result of “EEPLIANT” is not surprising: 76 lamps had already fallen through the first visual inspection – 53 models had defects in the packaging specifications, 49 in the technical documents and 27 the CE Declaration of Conformity.This is, of course, more than 76, because of several lamps several faults occurred at the same time.
At the first laboratory check, 60 models were already used
117 Retrofit models have so far completed a laboratory short check, each with three to five copies of a series in which roughly the official performance data for luminous flux, radiation angle, color temperature etc. were checked for compliance. 60 models landed outside the already fairly large EU measurement tolerances, 14 were “border cases”, 43 provided satisfactory results.
86 models – 62 of which round, 24 radiate – also lit in certified Belgian and British laboratories from March 2016 with an additional long – term test (PR photo on the right). Here, the holding capacity, the power consumption, the Kelvin value and the luminous flux are measured after 6000 operating hours.
There, however, 52 lamp models showed at the very beginning of the procedure that their performance deviated too much from the paper values in order to be legally sold in the EU. In many cases, the national supervisory authorities have already taken action to remove the illicit lamps from the market and to impose fines on providers. By the end of the long-term test in the spring of 2017, “EEPLIANT” believes that more models could follow.
Who benefits from such a LED lamp check?
And who is the benefit of such a major EU investigation? On the other hand, of course, unsuspecting consumers, with a lot of scrap being turned on. On the other hand, the big, well-known players on the European artificial light market, which have, for example, joined together in the lobbying organization “Lighting Europe”. These and other multinational associations are not sitting in the advisory board of “EEPLIANT” for nothing.
Finally, the local industry has an interest in not losing customers to low-cost competitors from all over the world – especially since quite a few lousy LED lamp models can totally and comprehensively ruin the reputation of semiconductor lighting technology on thehighly competitive, generally weakened market for general lighting.
