Q & A
Q. Why did you develop this leak
A. Because I was tired of hearing my wife, Jen, tell me her fluorescent
bulb type kept breaking.
Q. Why red?
A. Actually it's more of an orange. LEDs in this light frequency
range are the most economical
color to use (especially in low volumes). As you can read in our
customer testimonials, red
works very well in reflecting off darker color pads as well as white pads.
Q. Is this leak light's lead wire
stiff like my old one?
A. No. Because this light does not require high voltage at high
frequency, a thinner more flexible
cable can be used.
Q. Are the wire connections
durable to eliminate fatigue?
A. Yes. Much thought went into the design of this light, including
the electrical connection. I knew
this was a weak point in other designs. They are very
Q. Does this leak light require a
separate inverter box or ballast?
A. No. Fluorescent bulbs require an inverter/ballast to step the
voltage up to about 1000 VAC to
start them. This is not required for this new LED
design. Only a safe regulated 24 VDC wall
transformer is required which is included.
Q. Is this leak light flexible?.
A. No. It is rigid.
Q. Can this leak light be dimmed?
Q. Why should I buy one of these
A. This new solid state LED design is robust
and built with total quality in mind, it may be the last
leak light you will ever
have to buy. Oh, and also because it works great!
Q. What is an LED?
A. A Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a solid-state semiconductor device
that converts electrical
energy directly into light. On its most basic level,
the semiconductor is comprised of two
regions. The p-region contains positive electrical
charges while the n-region contains negative
electrical charges. When voltage is applied and current
begins to flow, the electrons move
across the n region into the p region. The process of
an electron moving through the p-n
junction releases energy. The dispersion of this energy
produces photons with visible
