World Brightest LED Torch Navy Seal Grade Tactical flashlight G700


That's what you get with the G700- a new Navy Seal Grade tactical flashlight.

The truth is, most people underestimate the importance of owning a great flashlight. And these days, in a world where terrorism, and natural disasters are becoming the norm, it's more important than ever to have the right tactical gear.

This light's incredible LED technology is used by the U.S. Navy Seals, the Coast Guard, Firemen, Policemen, U.S. Search and Rescue and now it's been placed inside of an amazing Flashlight called the G700...700 Lumen.

Sold very fast at USD$200.

I am looking for more specification and who is the one to make the Chip.

LED light Bulb sold in Kilogram for just 10 Yuan!

Real LED Maket that sell by Weight!

A Zhong Shan (China) LED manufacturer in Zhongshan, who sell all their products in the inventory cheaply as a last resort to payback suppliers towards the end of the year, suppliers are urging manufacturers to pay up, while employees are waiting for their salaries.

“They sell LED bulb for 10 RMB Yuan for 1 Kilo!”

Some manufacturers have declared bankruptcy as they find it increasingly difficult to survive with their low product sales, and easing market demands. However, this is the first company to sell products in this cheapo way.

As in general products costs will be further lowered, have higher luminaries  efficiency and are easier to assemble, more players are dumping into this LED industry in China.

“This is darkness before sunrise,” said Zhengzhe Wu, former General Manager of Everlight. China Manufacturers that survive are still those that rely on lean manufacturer, simpler process and higher LED output per dollar and nothing less, good quality that makes a good brand name.

LED Market for 2015, a summary from a Report to tell, it is still on Positive side for Growth in 2015

+ Growing demand + disciplined capacity expansion = tight supply in 2015
Looking ahead into 2015, our global High Brightness LED supply/demand model suggests tight supply could continue, driven by rising demand and disciplined capacity expansion. We forecast HB LED area demand ('area' refers to the total chip space used to generate light) will grow 19% YoY, capacity will expand 16%, and the global LED supply sufficiency ratio will narrow further from 4% in 2014E to 2% in 2015E. We therefore remain positive on the global LED sector.
+ General lighting demand will remain the key growth driver in 2015E

General lighting demand grew strongly in 2014, driven by falling LED light bulb prices and more promotion from global LED vendors. Recovering economies in developed markets such as Western Europe and the US also contributed to rising demand.

On an annual shipment basis, we see scope for LED-based lighting products to reach 10-12% growth in 2014E (versus 4-5% in 2013), higher than our previous estimate of 7-8%. We expect the penetration rate to further increase in 2015 and general lighting demand to grow 38% YoY in 2015. I personal Doubt the figure has been exaggerated or not, I am it is about 25-30% at most.

+ Chipmakers are prudent in expansion, while packagers are more +aggressive

We estimate LED chip area supply will increase 16% YoY in 2015, mainly driven by Chinese chipmakers. However, Chinese chipmakers have just started to order equipment in H214 and we do not expect additional capacity to be ready until H215—hence, capacity could be even tighter in H115. Even with a ramp-up in capacity, we still expect tight supply in H215. On the other hand, as packaging companies are more aggressively expanding capacity, there could be higher pricing pressure for packagers in 2015E.
+ We remain positive on the global LED space

The aggregate PE and P/BV of our Buy-rated stocks recently fell sharply below their trading range (Figures 2-3)—this share price correction could provide an attractive buying opportunity for long-term investors as we expect fundamentals to further improve in 2015. We think the key risks to our views are: 1) excess capacity driven by more overly-aggressive expansion; and 2) weaker-than-expected general lighting demand due to a slow global economic recovery.

Congratulations to Shuji Nakamura to be awarded with Nobel price on LED

As I had mentioned 4 years ago that Nakamura San would be likely earning the Nobel price because of his
technical achievement on Blue LED and LED invention.

I read about news Today that finally, he got it!

LED applictaion on some of the Expensive Wine!

What a great idea to use LED on some of the expensive wine, this is Don Perignon 2003.
It could be submerged into the Ice bucket for more than 1 hour with the LED's ON!
An awesome idea that stands out at night when someone's birthday, Well, Bottoms Up!

LED street Lighting in Manila, an Indication of the Adoption Rate of Street Lighting

This is a LED street lamp in Alabang, MoLito area, the whole area has been installed this LED street lamp.
It consists of K2 device on top as for main illumination, the four light post is designed as decoration light as it light up with running downward look light rain drops at night, It would be an Excellent Christmas light.

As what the LED people says, the penetration of Street lamp is 3%. Most of the installation is in advance country like Japan, Germany, Certain City of US, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, France and  China's LED City like Wei Feng in Shan Dong.

However in city of Philippines, we can see a lot of LED lighting too, so the Government incentive may play a key role to push for more adoption of LED as City' s Lighting., and I am sure they will enjoy the cost effectiveness using LED over the years.
