    There are many different types of lights available on the market, and each type has its advantages and disadvantages. When it comes to light bulbs, the options are endless. You could go with the popular incandescent bulb or, perhaps, a fluorescent or halogen bulb. There are also energy-efficient options such as Compact Fluorescent (CFL) and Light Emitting Diode (LED) bulbs.

    Recently, however, another type of light has been developing in popularity. OLED is an LED which has an emissive electroluminescent layer made of an organic compound that puts out light as a response to electric currents. OLEDs are often used in television screens, computer monitors, cell phones, and handheld game consoles. Research has also been done into developing solid-state lighting with white OLED devices.

    LED lights are quickly becoming the most favored light source in American households. The United States Department of Energy has estimated that due to rising demand, prices for LED bulbs have dropped ninety percent since 2008. 

    LED bulbs are targeted towards customers through guaranteed savings. These savings have been proven by the Consumer Federation of America. Recently conducted studies about switching over to LED lighting have shown individual projected savings are greater than $1,000 over the span of the next 10 years. 

    What the Consumer Federation of America also found notable is that these bulbs only use approximately one dollar of electricity annually and usually cost less than five dollars to purchase! In comparison with incandescent and halogen bulbs, LED proves to be the cheapest, most efficient, and longest lasting option.
