And rather than 40 watts, that one metre of LED tape will draw less than 5 watts! Even at first glance, these savings look impressive. For comparison, conventional incandescent bulbs can last up to 2, hours just over a year and CFL up to 15, hours around 10 years. Up and coming LED technologies can help to reduce carbon emissions, and they offer other green benefits for the environment too. The comparative efficiency of LEDs means far less power is need to produce the same light-levels; as the infographic at the top of this page shows, 1 metre of watt white LED tape produces roughly the same light-level as two watt halogen bulbs.
