We recommend the use of LED light bulbs for all enclosed light fixtures like this one. The LED, or light-emitting diode,
is essentially a miniature light source incased in a plastic lens. LED lighting is ultra-compact and dramatically more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs. And, because LED bulbs are based on solid-state lighting technology that emits light from a chip, they produce minimal heat and there is no filament to burn out, as with incandescent bulbs. Nor do they contain mercury and other toxic material.
