If you are looking for a light to stow in your car or emergency kit, you will want a small light that still puts out a bright beam. LED flashlights are best for this application, hands down, and manual power lights are great for emergency kits as a backup for when batteries run out. Keep both kinds of light stocked so that you will have a stronger light if you need it. Use the manual light for brief uses, like checking on your child's skinned knee, and the battery powered light to scan for danger or signal for help.
For the kitchen, recessed incandescent downlights should be placed approximately 6' to 8' apart. Fluorescent recessed fixtures are a good alternative choice, as they last ten times longer and deliver three to four times more light per watt than incandescent lighting. Plus, recessed fixtures can be hidden in niches or placed to shine through glass shelves for a unique, backlight display.
As early as mid-1940s the lights were being sold in both the US and Europe, and by the 1950s they had become wildly popular. Though the original light sets were expensive, heavy, breakable, and temperamental, they were a holiday must-have and just about everyone who can recall the fifties and sixties will remember a string or two of bubble lights in a place of honor on the Christmas tree.
Most LED bulbs are rated 50,000 hours or more. Consequently, an LED bulb will last upto 17 years when used for an average of eight hours in a day. As a result of their long life, you change LED bulbs less frequently, giving you a substantial savings in labor. In addition, with LED bulbs, you get the bulbs actual, rated life; with filament-type bulbs, every time the bulb is cycled on and off, the bulbs life is shortened due to the filaments loss of metal.
