Green Tip #33
LED Headlamps Save Batteries and Bulbs

Going camping? Ditch your flashlight for an LED headlamp!

Not only do LEDs create a brighter, sustained light and use less battery power than a regular old flashlight, but quality LED headlamps can provide over 600 hours of light from just one set of regular AA or AAA batteries - and when was the last time you went camping for 600 hours?

The real hot math tip is this combination of battery and bulb efficiency can result in up to 90% less energy consumption than your flashlight.
