LED lights are everywhere, from solar-powered yard lights to light-up jewelry to party decorations that take guests’ breath away. Besides being fun, LED lights are practical, long-lasting, and economical.
You may not even know all of the ways that you can use these evergreen lights to your advantage. Here are seven brilliant uses of LED lighting to explore.
Whether you’re a long-time model builder or a scale model beginner, battery-operated LED lights can add extra pizazz to model train sets and model cars and help builders achieve a life-like effect. Note there are several different types of battery-powered LEDs, including, but not limited to, flickering, flashing, and solid-steady LEDs.
When choosing the best battery-powered LEDs for your project needs, you’ll need to account for the following factors:
- The amount of space available for concealing the battery pack
- The number of LEDS present in your project (which will dictate the type of size of batteries best suited for the model in question).
Once you’ve selected the right battery-powered LEDs for your scale model, you can reap the benefits of this type of LED technology. From long lifespans to reliable temperature control, these benefits make the use of battery-powered LED technology worth your while.
Wearing battery LED lights can make people safer while traveling on foot or bike. These small lights operate on AAA or small button batteries, as the name implies. Some wearable lights clip to clothing or hang around a wrist or neck to ensure drivers see pedestrians, bicyclists, or runners at night.
Dog collars with LEDs keep pets visible at night, too. These devices are great for walking a dog in the dark or going for an after-hours jog. Lights attached to horse’s tails serve the same purpose for nighttime rides on horseback.
LED wallpaper is a fascinating conversation piece. Designers can incorporate LED elements into the paper while keeping it the standard wallpaper thickness, making for a light show that lends extra shine to your interior decorating.
Most styles are flat without noticeable wires or tubes inside the paper. Wallpaper isn’t made with battery LED lights, however. You’ll need to be able to plug it in to enjoy the light-up effects.
A virtual sky LED light effect in the office ceiling makes it feel bigger. LED skylights in any room are better than the buzzy, blinking fluorescent office lights of years past.
Workers can enjoy an LED “sky” on the ceiling to make the day a little brighter and help reduce eyestrain and headaches by 84%.
Small battery LEDs make pretty light-up jewelry. The bright lights show up even in the daytime, but light-up earrings, pendants, and bracelets make great accessories to wear at night and in clubs.
This type of jewelry is also a great addition to a Halloween costume. Not only is it eye-catching, but it helps drivers see people on the street and helps reduce accidents.
LED light strips in ropes or fairy lights brighten up any space. These strips are popular as bedroom decor or for dinings rooms and dens.
The inexpensive lights add fun decor without breaking the bank and enhance everything else in the room.
Creative people like those who make custom stickers and design rooms on a budget can mix and match LED light strips to create something unique and pretty.
Umbrellas with LED lights are more a style choice than a practical one, but they provide a little light in the dark and help drivers see pedestrians walking in the rain.
The battery LED lights in umbrellas typically run on button batteries or one AAA battery.
Tiny light-up objects like cactuses, snowmen, and other figures meant for a desktop can add some fun to the office environment or your home office.
Some of the items use a small battery, while others plug into the USB port of a computer for power.
These LED knick-knacks add some fun to office work, like the cheerful emojis that brighten up the workplace and make time spent there more enjoyable.
LED lights illuminate homes and offices now, and sometimes people use them in many other fun ways. Innovative designs for an LED contact lens and light-up eyelashes as a fashion statement are in the prototype stages.
That means there will be even more fascinating LED designs to enjoy soon.
