Replying to Topic 'LED Brightness'

leds are fairly bright, I have a 2 aa single led flashlight that will burn your eyes out if you look into the beam (obviously you wouldnt though) but it is better than a standard bulb, just not as big overall coverage for light but rather more focused and intense and definitely longer lasting. maybe they will be in car headlights one day to replace HID??

Reading Topic: LED Brightness

The lights in the case I posted are only from 4 LED fans.

There are 2 front fans, 2 rear fans, 2 cpu fans, and one blowhole fan.

So thats 7 Fans with 4 LED's per fan, or 28 LED's for the math handicapped.

The shot is overexposed slightly, which is why they look so ultra bright.

Not too likely, cause of frequency range and illumination. You need maaaaany LEDs to replace an HID...

I think luxeon LEDs have the possibility of replacing headlights. They're supposedly 10 times brighter than regular bright LEDs. I couldn't find any place that sold these LEDs for auto applications yet though.

Reading Topic: LED Brightness

I work/am studying in the lighting industry. Yes, luxeon LEDs are one of the brands that are currently vying for the highest intensity. There are applications where LEDs are being used as the sole light source for rooms. As for white LEDs I believe they are all just a variation of blue that appears to the human eye as nearly white. They have really come a long way to getting them to seem truly white to the eye.

Check out this site to see the sate of the art in LED lighting. I have seen another company's product that is an interior flood light based on this technology.
