General Electric to Phase Out Cfl Bulbs, Amp Up Led Lights

Hello, LED lights! Goodbye, CFL bulbs.General Electric announced Monday it will phase out compact florescent light (CFL) bulbs and increase focus onLED lights by the end of the year.Compact fluorescent bulbsflooded the market as a cheap energy efficient alternative after the federal government banned 100-watt incandescent bulbs for failing to meet U.S. energy standardsin 2012.While LED lights were availableand consumers argued the lighting was better, they were expensive, costing$40-$50 in 2012, according to a statement from GE.From the start, CFLswere criticized for producing a "cold light." Consumers were also miffed by the amount of time it took for the bulb to light up a room and that the bulbsdidn't appear to work with traditional dimmer switches.While the product was improved, many failed to warm up to CFLs,and the bulbs accounted for just 15% of sales last year, according to a statement from GE.Enter the increasedfocus on LED lights."These LED lightbulbs are starting to replicate what the electrical filament has done for over 100 years - providing that look and warm ambience that people are used to," said John Strainic, GE lighting chief operating officer,in a statement. "The time for LED is now."By the end of the year, consumers in the U.S. will no longer see spiral CFL light bulbs on shelves. The "break up" with CFLscomes as the LED lights cost has dropped significantly, according to the company.A 60-watt-equivalentbulb can sell for under $5, and GE predicts the LED lights will be used in more than half of light sockets in the U.S. by 2020.

How to Fix Dc 12 Led Lights That Burn Out Due to Excess Voltage Or Current
Unfortunately you do not tell us how much current is needed by your LEDs and fans.Assuming that this current is less than 2 A you could consider using a buck-boost converter like this:In the description this model is listed as usable up to 3 A but you have to take that with a grain of salt. I would use it up to 1 A and not be worried. Maybe it would survive 2 A just fine, At 3 A it might get too hot and not work in the long run. Then it would be better to use a module rated for 5 A.Actually the name is wrong as the converter first boosts the voltage up to for example 24 V and then uses a DCDC down converter (a buck converter) to lower the voltage to the voltage you need, for example 12 V.This means the module will output 12 V as long as the input voltage stays within (quite broad) limits. So even at 10. 5 V or 15 V at the input, you will always get 12 V at the output.There are many different modules similar to this one, just search for "Buck boost module"1.
