We offer several lighting options for our showcases, take for example our jewelry showcase. There are 3 lighting options for you to choose from.
- Fluorescent Light Strip
- Halogen Light Strip

In this post we are going to focus on the led light bar option in jewelry showcases.
The Forbes published an article last week about 5 myths on LED lighting, here are 2 of the myths they mention.
- LED’s don’t save power
- LED’s don’t work
Now lets debunk these myths.
LED’s Do Save Power
LED bulbs typically consume less than half of the energy of a compact fluorescent and 1/8th to 1/10th of the power of an incandescent bulb. Those figures for LEDs will also improve over time too. LEDs, after all, are chips: history and physics dictate that they will go down in price and improve in performance steadily over time.
LED’s Do Work & Last Longer
Actually, car manufacturers, TV makers, street light manufacturers and makers of industrial equipment have already turned to LEDs to reduce power.
These manufacturers, in fact, have chosen LEDs because they fit better with the rough and tumble of everyday reality. Unlike conventional bulbs, LEDs don’t shatter. They also don’t contain gases like mercury or electrodes that can easily snap. An LED bulb will last 35,000 to 50,000 hours, which translates into more than ten years in ordinary household or office scenarios.
So if you are looking into purchasing glass, jewelry or trophy showcases, LED is a good lighting option which will help you save on your energy bill as well as last longer in your showcase; eliminating the need to replace light bulbs.
