Philips LED lights are quality assured with over 70 reliability tests conducted under stringent conditions to meet international standards. Not only they are more economical, they are also more eco-friendly in the long run. Philips LED bulbs offer up to 85% energy savings compared to over Philips incandescent lamps with a life expectancy up to 15 years under standard usage, at a typical 2.7 hours usage per day. LED lamps do not have filaments or any moveable parts, making them extremely durable and long-lasting. Philips LED bulbs are also mercury-free – preventing the risks of harmful exposure if a light bulb breaks. Furthermore LED solutions offer greater quality of light without any visible flicker, or the worries of harmful UV/IR emissions. It is also easier on the eyes – with minimal glare as well as producing full and even brightness instantly.
