Dyson CSYS uses satellite technology to make LEDs last for 37 years

Dyson took on the challenge of making an LED last longer by addressing the issue that causes the bulbs to die: heat. Other LEDs are not able to cool themselves to the degree needed to prolong their already lengthy lifespans. Dyson’s engineers took a note from satellite technology and installed a horizontal heat-pipe, instead of the traditional round heat sink used in other bulbs. The aluminum heat sink in the Dyson bulb draws heat away from the bulb, protecting the LED’s phosphorus coating. With 12 hours of continual use per day, Dyson says they should last 37 years.
