If you do a lot of boondocking (no hookups while camping), then you know battery life is one of the most important things you must plan for, especially if you have a small battery bank. One great way to save a lot of power is to convert your existing incandescent lighting to LED lighting. LED stands for light emitting diode and provides light in a very different way than incandescent or fluorescent lighting sources. The biggest benefit for a boondocker is that LEDs require very little power to operate, so you won’t have to be so conscious of switching off lights when you don’t need them.
Just how much power can you save by going LED? In a typical travel trailer of say 27 feet with a super slide and a couple of bunk beds, you may have upwards of 20+ 12 watt incandescent bulbs. If you were to have all of these on at one time, you would be drawing around 20 amps of DC power. In a few hours, your single group 24 12-volt battery would be near dead. Even if you had two batteries, you wouldn’t have much left to finish out a 2-day weekend without a battery recharge.
Finally there is a motorcycle LED light kit designed specifically for sport bikes, “The Sport Bike Kit”.
Sport Bikes are attractive and aggressive machines that, on their own, command attention. They are eye-catching, fast, and becoming more and more popular among both new and experienced riders. Now, with LED light kits designed specifically for them they are sure to be show stoppers.
The DARPA 2005 Challenge is a once in a lifetime chance for robotic engineers, companies and engineers to show their stuff. What is learned during such contests probably saves the Department of Defense hundreds of millions in Research and Development costs. To the taxpayers this is exceptional news indeed.
Recently I had a conversation with one of the teams, which is poised to win this years contest, although many would agree upon reviewing all these teams that they are all winners, as they bring to the table the future of robotics a frontier, which will be conquered indeed. This team told me that since they were using Off-The-Shelf Technology for their platform vehicle, meaning it was your basic SUV, that they were not sure if it had enough of a gas tank to make the whole trip. In fact since the speeds would be around 20-25 miles per hour over rugged terrain and since the vehicle would be running the modified electrical system full blast, with two alternators, RV style air-conditioning system and computer processors that it would be a gas hog? And you thought you paid a lot for gasoline? In any case this unmanned ground vehicles or UGV would be very inefficient indeed.
The LED or Light Emitting Diode came up after a series of inventions, by redefining how light should be emitted. From the age of candle light to the realities of Edison’s light bulb, the tungsten coiled filament has been ruling for decades.
LED bulbs are made from semi semiconductors and it gains more popularity because of its major advantages over a typical tungsten light filament lights. Inventors were able to design a model that could work with car headlamp and it is called Car Led light bulbs.
36 diodowa energooszczędna lampa zewnętrzna LED o mocy 2.9W. Barwa biała ciepła
36 ledowa lampa zewnętrzna ECO-LED jest nowoczesną lampą wykorzystującą jako źródło światła półprzewodnikowe diody LED. Dzięki temu osiąga dużo większą sprawność w bezpośredniej zamianie energii elektrycznej na światło. Jej główną zaletą jest małe zużycie prądu oraz to, że w czasie świecenia jest zawsze chłodna.
Diody elektroluminescencyjne (LED), półprzewodniki, które emitują światło po podłączeniu ich z biegunem dodatnim energii elektrycznej znalazły się w przededniu przejęcia komercyjnych i konsumenckich sektorów przemysłu oświetleniowego. Wszystko to dzięki większej wydajności, dłuższemu okresowi użytkowania, w połączeniu z przyjazną ekologicznie obsługą. Diody LED są przyszłością światła, sprowadzając tradycyjne żarówki żarowe i fluorescencyjne ku ich nieuchronnemu wyginięciu. Właściwie to tylko wyższe koszty produkcji diod utrzymują przy życiu tradycyjną żarówkę.

LED car lights are often used when you are customizing your car to give it a unique look. LED car lights are not just limited to headlights, so they open up a completely new world for customizing your car.
One of the most popular uses of LED car lights is with your interior lights, including your dome lights. Using LED car lights on the inside of your car will allow you to give your car a customized lighting job, in a variety of colors. LED car lights will allow you to add color and light to the inside of your car no matter what style you like, You can use tubes, strips, and projectors all equipped with LED car lights to update the inside of your car, but you can also choose from a large range of colors, including pink and purple.
Since the introduction of the automobile, lighting has remained an integral part of cars. Since the beginning, headlight design has morphed from the original utilitarian design to a more aesthetically pleasing one while at the same time improving in technology. The introduction of daytime running lights within the headlight housing to the automotive mainstream has been largely a hit because of safety reasons. The use of LEDs instead of incandescent bulbs for those daytime running lights is even more of an improvement.
Daytime running lights are automatically turned on as soon as the vehicle starts to move, emitting light to increase the conspicuity of the vehicle during daylight driving conditions. They improve safety by reducing crashes because when these lights are on, they make it easier for the approaching vehicle that is far away to notice you better. They grab the driver’s attention faster than cars without them. If LED’s are used, they even look brighter.
High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting is a technology that offers your car more light output, whiter light and longer service life. HID is installed using HID kits which are sometimes called conversion kits or xenon kits. With this product car owners can feel a brand new experience in their car lighting because HID assure users of three times brighter light, clearer road images and greater efficiency. With the HID technology, car owners can save more energy because this lighting technology only consumes its needed power so there will be no waste in power and battery.
Another feature of this HID is that it does not use filaments like ordinary bulbs do instead they create light by bridging an arc between two electrodes similar to the energy transfer that creates lightning. This is a very smart development created to solve numerous lighting problems by car owners. What am I really talking about? Well let me put it this way. If everyone will use this kind of lighting for their cars then they will be assured that it will last longer and will have longer life because it is beyond the ordinary and the technology it uses is not like that of ordinary bulbs. Then if better lighting is attained there will be fewer accidents on the streets and people will be encouraged to own cars even if they still fear having one. And who know maybe this technology cannot be only developed for cars but for other purposes as well and creators of these might just spark the most magnificent science breakthrough.
