Question: What does LED stand for?

Here at Innovative Signs, we use the acronym LED all the time. We all may know what LED lights are, but do you know what it stands for? Go ahead, take a guess.

  1. Live Energy Device
  2. Long-Enabled Dot
  3. Lime Eating Dragon
  4. Light-Emitting Diode
  5. None of the above

Well it’s definitely NOT (C). The correct answer is (D) Light-Emitting Diode.

A Light-Emitting Diode is an electronic device that emits light when an electrical current is passed through it. Early LEDs produced only red light, but modern LEDs can produce several different colors, including red, green, and blue (RGB) light. Advances in LED technology have made it possible for LEDs to produce white light as well. []
