Q & A

Q. Why did you develop this leak light?
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 durable.

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?
A. No.

Q. Why should I buy one of these leak lights?
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
     wavelengths.
