It's been almost a year since I started to "LEDify" my home, with results more or less encouraging, but only an accident made ââme find the best solution so far.
Step 1: Motivation
How often happened that you or someone in your family, by mistake, to overthrow the desk lamp? If you are like me, this has happened many times... For this reason, the last time my offspring slammed my desk lamp one more time, with an innocent "UUPS!", I exclaimed Enough!
Warning! CFL bulbs contains a small quantity of mercury and this is a very toxic substance.
If by accident or intentional, you have broken an CFL bulb, it is advised to ventilate the room as good as possible, in order to dissipate the toxic vapours.
I decided that I have to replace the CFL bulb from the desk lamp, with something more shock resistant...
But that could withstand the treatment of a 10 years child and at the same time to make enough light to work at desk in good condition, to be reliable in operation and decently priced? If only a few years ago, there was no a solution to this question, the answer is now clear: a power LED.
