Today LED bulbs are widely-used and are available in different shapes, sizes, and types. The advancement in semiconductor technology has given rise to increased use in energy-efficient LED bulbs and decorative lights. LED lights offer numerous benefits like low power consumption and better illumination. However, the increased use in LED lights has led to increase in types and categories of LED lights.


Heating is the enemy number one of all LEDs. It is important that you should know the heat dissipation method of the purchased product as they vary with every manufacturer. Manufacturers like My Nice, Philips, and Cree offer a large variety of lighting solutions.


Buying a LED light is no longer a simple task, as there are hundreds of potential options to choose from. To help you in having a better understanding of the types and categories of LED, we’ve mentioned below a comprehensive list of various types and categories of LED lights:


·       Miniature LED:

It is one of the most commonly used types of LED. Miniature LED are usually used in devices with hole-through and mounted-surface designs. These types of LEDs are mostly used as indicators on small devices like mobile phones and calculators. These LEDs are popular for characteristics like high-output and low current input.


·       High power LED:


High power LEDs are known to provide with high illumination and much brighter light than any other electric light source. The biggest drawback of this LED is overheating and to avoid the dangers of overheating, high power LEDs must be mounted on heat-absorbent surfaces.

These are energy efficient and last longer than any other type of LED or incandescent light.


·       Super Flux LED:

These LEDs are usually used on large boards such as advertising boards. These LEDs are developed for maximizing light emission.


Mynice Optoelectronics Co. Ltd not only offers high-quality LEDs but their backlighting and architectural lines are famous for longevity and durability.


·       Flashing LED:

These LEDs are used as indicators.



·       Bi-color and Tri-color LED:

In bi-color LEDs, two different colored LEDs are encased as one which emits two different colors as the current flows through it. Whereas tri-color LED also consist of two different colored LEDs in single encasing but in tri-color LEDs, the integral LEDs can light up simultaneously.


Whether you are buying a LED light for residential purpose or for architectural lighting, it is important that you should know the specifications and features of the purchased product. Manufacturers like My Nice, Eaton, Cree, Philips and other similar brands offer high-quality LED lights and bulbs.



In a nutshell, semiconductor technology is continuously evolving and with this rapid speed of evolution, we are sure to see a hundred others options and types of LEDs in near future. Choosing a LED light is definitely a challenging task but with so many available options you will surely find your ultimate lighting solution.
