LED bulbs are most commonly used in mother and child lamps due to their energy efficiency and popularity. Mother and child lamps, which typically consist of a larger main lamp (mother) and a smaller adjustable lamp (child) attached to it, benefit from the use of LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology. LEDs have gained widespread adoption in recent years because of their ability to produce bright light while consuming significantly less energy compared to traditional incandescent bulbs. This energy efficiency not only reduces electricity costs but also contributes to a more environmentally friendly lighting solution for mother and child lamps.
In addition to their energy efficiency, LED bulbs are favoured for their longevity. They have a much longer lifespan than incandescent bulbs, which means less frequent bulb replacements, reducing maintenance efforts and costs for mother and child lamps.
With bulb bases, two common types are typically used in mother and child lamps: B22 and GU10. B22, also known as the bayonet base, is a standard bulb base in many countries and easily recognizable by its two pins that are inserted into the corresponding slots in the lamp socket. GU10, on the other hand, is a twist and lock base, featuring two straight pins that are inserted into the socket and then twisted to secure the bulb in place.
The popularity of LED bulbs, coupled with the convenience of B22 and GU10 bases, makes them widely preferred options for mother and child lamps, providing both efficient lighting and ease of use for consumers.
