Optimistic exports are expected to be able to drive the production of lighting business, but it can not be ignored that the European Union and the United States since implement new lighting standards and norms since last year, export enterprises must close variation for the latest standards for production. The implementation of the new standards is both a challenge and an opportunity, on the trend of the world, traditional light sources will be phased out, energy-saving lamps and LED are more environmentally friendly and accord with sustainable development, the new product have more plastic both in the design and application will be become the market leader.
From 2012 onwards, the European Union banned all traditional light bulb wattage; Second, the U.S will disuse most incandescent lamps from January 2012 to January 2014 and replaced with compact fluorescent lamps, light emitting diodes and other energy lights; once again, by the end of March, South Korea raised safety standards of its straight tube which can be replaced, townhouses and ring type fluorescent lamp LED lamp www.cfllight.com

Even the newest CFL lights take abit to get to full brightness. The cold rated ones don't work in cold wisconsin winters (or struggle) There are yellow-ish cfl's and daylight types but both give off a harsh cold light. We prefer to have normal incandescents in the bedrooms and bathrooms for a warmer light.

Going with a more cost savings light both for outdoor and indoor I've used instead of the CFL's the new LED lights -- they give off a nice light, turn on right away to full light, cost (for energy use) tons less than CFL's and last lots longer.

The cost for LED lights are going down and hopefully it keeps going down
for now I've used it for lights that stay on a long time - such as any outdoor lights
and others that may be on for a long time ... they give off no heat as well.
