LED Bulbs

Don’t try to reinvent the light bulb they said?  Well after decades of testing and experimenting with LEDs they finally got it right. And each month the price drops and they become more available.  LED bulbs which don’t contain any nasty mercury have become the best way to cut your electric bill and more environmentally friendly than the older CFL bulbs which 15 years ago were heralded as the savior to energy costs, only to find out that if they break, it’s a headache to clean the mercury.
