LED lights last longer than a traditional light. Even as they age, they will not “burn out” like an incandescent bulb. When an incandescent bulb has reached the end of its lifespan it simply does not turn on. The filament inside of the bulb is broken, and you go from having light to not having light.
LED light bulbs work differently. There is no filament to break inside of an LED light. A LED flashlight or lantern reaches the end of its life cycle gradually. Over a period of hours of use (thousands of hours of use actually) the light that is emitted from the LED gradually dims.
