Soraa has developed an LED that is bright enough to replace a 50-watt halogen bulb but draws only 12 watts. Most LEDs emit light from a thin layer of gallium nitride on a substrate of either silicon or sapphire.
Soraa’s Premium LED has a gallium nitride substrate instead; using the same material for the substrate and the emitter means more current can be run through the LED, resulting in more light output from a given area.
