I think the study you posted had something to do with me buying a solar powered, LED flashlight last Saturday, so thank you very much.

It's the size of a two AA penlight flashlight, but the bulb lasts 100,000 hours! I wonder if the solar cell will last that long? If it doesn't, I guess the whole thing needs replacing. Regardless, the thought of never having to buy batteries is very good indeed.

The light is different. It's a blueish white, and while not seemingly all that bright, it does the job of lighting up your path in a dark room. I think it's very cool.

One problem. The plastic case puts off a really nasty odor. So bad in fact, that I don't think too many people would want it near their bed at night. Maybe having it set in the sun for charging will burn off the volatile plastic chemical(s) and solve the problem over time.

As for extensive use of LEDs, that's one of the best ways we can reduce CO2 emissions.

Thank you.

ps. Al Gore's coming out with a new book on how we can reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. I'll bet he has quite a bit on LEDs.
