Even an LED Draws Some Electricity
What is it about an LED that draws my attention? Well, for one thing, I expect complete darkness in my bedroom at night. Even an LED bothers me. So I hide my computer monitor's LED at night, as well as any other LEDs in the room.
So I notice them. So what? Well, to me they are a nuisance and a waste of electricity. Oh, I know there are other useful purposes to which they are put, and I have no complaint there. But I hate waste.
So how much electricity does a "useless" LED waste? Not much. But they do draw some electricity. Multiply that quantity by a gadzillion of the things and I suspect you'll come up with a surprising quantity. Now there is a mathematical equation for that waste...
P = K x Q
Pollution equals some constant times the number or quantity of LEDs of no value.
