Why You Should Have an LED Light for Computer Desk, and How to Pick a Good One

LED computer lamps are not a new invention. In fact, they have been on the market for more than a decade now.

When they first emerged, LED light for computer desk did not immediately become popular. They were much more expensive, and they look a loss less interesting in terms of styles compared to other types of lamps.

However, within the past few years, the LED technology has gone through a lot of renovations. LED computer desk lamps are now dominating the market, and for good reasons.

Light for Computer Desk – Why You Should Go for LED

LED desk lamps are more environmentally friendly

When electricity goes into an incandescent bulb, only 5% of it is transferred into visible light.

On an LED, the number is threefold.

An LED bulb only uses 10 watts to produce the same light as a 60-watt incandescent bulb does.

As you can see from this comparison chart, LED is the most energy-efficient of all types of bulbs.

Also due to the fact that they produce much less heat, LEDs tend to enjoy a much longer life.

An LED bulb lasts 2.5 longer than a CFL, and 25 times a halogen.

If only each household in a town of a thousand households changes 1 of their halogen desk lamps into an LED, within 10 years the number of bulbs discharged will reduce by more than 27000.

Imagine how the earth can benefit from that.

They’re no longer that expensive

When they first emerged on the market, LED lights were much more expensive than other types of lights. Many consumers were not sure of their producer-claimed lifespan, and did not want to invest so much more on a technology they didn’t know of.

However, as technology advances, their prices have become a lot more affordable. You can now easily find a good LED Desk lamp for less than $100. Still more expensive than other kinds with similar designs and materials, yes, but they last a lot longer and use much less energy, so the initial investment is worth it in long term. (more…)

2012 Year in (Book) Review…heehee! By Lisa Paul

Hello my friends, I hope this post finds you all well.  I hope your holidays were happy and the year to come holds nothing but health and happiness for you and your loved ones.

I have received feedback from some of you requesting a top ten (or so) list of my favorite books from Lisa’s Reads this year.  After giving the requests a lot of thought I came to this conclusion….I CAN’T do it.  I just CAN’T.  Why, You ask?  I’ll tell you.  If you read the “About Me” section at the top of the page, or if you have been following this blog over the course of the year, you know that I only post books that I LOVE.  I don’t have a rating system…I don’t do negative reviews…I ONLY post books that have won my heart.  That being the case, how could I possibly choose ten books that I love more than the rest of the books I have claimed to love up until this point.  To me, it would be like asking a parent to choose which child she loves more.  I can’t do it.  As any good mom would say, while I do love all of the children (or in this case my books) the same amount, I love them for different reasons.  So what I thought I would do is list for you ALL of the books I reviewed or even mentioned in my blog this year.  However, I will break them into genres/categories to make it a little less overwhelming for you.  **Please understand, the books listed below are NOT listed in any particular order!** It is also important to note that while, for the purpose of this post, I have placed the books in one list or another, a lot of them can be in more then one genre.  When you click on each book, you will be taken directly to it’s original post, there you will be able to see if the book falls into another genre.  Have fun!
