It's time to learn about the difference in light technology with the humorous and smart, Mehdi Sadaghdar from ElectroBOOM.

Now, if any of you follow Mehdi Sadaghdar, you'll know that this crazy electronic genius is really good at electrocuting himself. All in the name of education, mind. You see, Mehdi uses his YouTube channel, ElectroBOOM, to teach us how electricity works, from Tesla Coils to heated seats to lightbulbs.

His party trick is to keep it entertaining, and he's very good at shocking or burning himself, but his lessons are fresh and insightful. In this particular video, he teaches us all about the difference in light tech, and which technology is best for consumers. His inspiration for this was spurred on by the man who loves to divide opinion... that's right, its US President, Donal Trump!

To get you up to speed, Trump recently stated that he dislikes modern energy-saving light bulbs and that, instead, he supports the use of the old, incandescent bulbs.

So, to find the truth as to what kind of lightbulb is actually better, Mehdi pits four of the most recent developments in lighting technology against each other. The list includes the old incandescent bulbs, halogen, Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL), and Light Emitting Diodes (LED).

This test includes:

  • Power usage
  • light output level
  • Life
  • Light Quality
  • Durability
  • Cost
  • Light Temperature
  • Dimmable
  • Hazardous Material

This light-hearted yet educational look at determining which type of light bulb is the best contains a bunch of science, a sprinkling of technology, a dab of history and the continual mention of Donald Trump and his orange hue. Mehdi is terrific, and you should watch his video immediately.
