Light Emitting Diode or LED is very popular light source later these days. It is cool, bright, consume less power, and almost maintenance free. One of the famous brand is Luxeon, made exclusively by Philips Lumileds Lighting Company, LLC.
This so called Luxeon has superiority in terms of highest flux. The lowest version may deliver more than 40 Lumens in white. It’s bright, very bright. The highest version, the K2 may deliver up to 140 Lumens (at 1500 mA). Remember, this 140 Lumens comes from single LED only! Imagine that your digital video projector only capable delivering 750-1000 Lumens. By using 10 of this Luxeon K2, you can easily reach 1400 Lumens! And of course, because this is a LED, it’s quite cold (though somehow you still have to use heatsink on the bottom).
Picture above is Luxeon K2 Emitter. Up to 140 Lumens @ 1500 mA from this tiny LED! Amazing!
