Orient LED Batten Review: A Bright Idea

Orient LED Batten

On the first day of creation, God said, “Let there be light”. But that in turn created a problem because, you see, he didn’t specify what kind of light there was supposed to be. Did he mean your regular incandescent bulbs? He couldn’t have, because those guzzle an alarming amount of electricity and lead to horrible side effects such as the slaughter of baby seals and deforestation of rainforests. Did he mean the relatively more benign fluorescent lights then? I don’t think so, because these lights emit ultraviolet radiation. I believe we can all agree that the benevolent god above sure as hell wouldn’t want you to contract skin ailments or, worse yet, cancer.

No sir, God specifically alluded to LED lights, for the simple reason that they are good for the nature as well as your well-being; not to mention the fact that they’re pretty bright and economical to boot. That’s why we have the 18-watt Orient LED Batten here with us for review. These next-generation line of home lighting solutions are LED-powered replacements for your antiquated fluorescent light fixtures from the house of Orient Electric.

Built to Last

What’s worth mentioning is how the Orient LED Batten wasn’t exactly ensconced in two tonnes of thermocol and corrugated boards, which is how you find regular fluorescent lights packaged. That’s because modern LED lights are tougher and made from strong yet lightweight materials. The Orient LED Batten is no different. Constructed from durable and featherweight polycarbonate material, there’s no danger of breaking any glass and releasing toxic gases in the process with this LED light. It enjoys a lifespan of 10+ years. This makes it safe even for homes where kids have a penchant for destruction.

What’s more, installing the Orient LED Batten is as easy as screwing in a pair of invisible clamps that safely and securely hold the lightweight fixture. The LED lighting fixture is available at an MRP of ₹539, but it pays for itself thanks to significantly lower running costs and a long life running into several thousand hours. So far, we have established that Orient LED Batten saves money as well as baby seals and tropical rainforests. We know that it’s safe, durable, and economical over its ample lifespan. But what exactly separates Orient LED Batten from the rest?
