  2. Do LED lights flicker?

    Answer:

    No, our LED downlights and lamps do not flicker to the naked eye.

  3. Do LEDs contain harmful chemicals?

    Answer:

    No. LED products do not omit harmful chemicals such as mercury, making them safe for use in the home or office environment.

  4. Do LEDs heat up?

    Answer:

    LEDs are extremely energy efficient, converting 90% of the electricity consumed to light, unlike incandescent bulbs that convert 95% of electricity consumed into heat.

  5. Do LEDs require separate drivers?

    Answer:

    No. Our LEDs come with internal constant current drivers, meaning your light bulbs can be replaced with a LED. LED tubes require a starter to be removed & the ballast bypassed to save the maximum amount of electricity.

  6. Do your LEDs fit existing light fittings?

    Answer:

    Yes. All AUSPOWER LEDS main downlight bulbs have GU10 or ES27 screw fittings which fit standard light fittings. AUSPOWER LEDS replacement tubes fit standard fluorescent tube batons.

  7. Do your products conform to Australian Standards?

    Answer:

    Yes, all AusPower LEDS' products are fully designed to Australian conditions, tested and approved to Australian Standards (AS/NZ 3100) and EMC (Electro-Magnetic Interference) tested and Certified.

  8. How much power can I save?

    Answer:

    Some of AUSPOWER LEDS innovative products have been found to save the consumer up to 75 to 80% in their electricity light running costs. Although more expensive to buy initially, they are more economical over the life of the product than traditional incandescents, fluorescent, mirror backed globes and tubes.

  9. How safe are LEDs?

    Answer:

    AUSPOWER LEDS products comply with Restriction of Hazardous Substances legislation and will not explode like incandescent bulbs, or shatter and spread powder throughout your home like flouroescent tubes. They do not contain heavy metals such as mercury or emit gases and are therefore safe for your family and the environment.
