LED lights are becoming more popular than metal halides, due to their lifespan, luminosity and improved energy efficiency.
LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights are made of a component with two electrodes, these are semiconductive due to the materials they are made of and emit visible light when an electrical current runs through them
Metal Halide lights are made of metal and halogen combinations. Visible light is emitted when an electrical current is passed through the metal halide gas and mercury.
