Gold as electric conductor
Many lamp manufacturers use cheap contacts, with the result that in the contacts, a large part of the energy is converted into heat (voltage drop) and doesn’t reach the illuminant. To keep this effect to an absolute minimum, we gold-plate our contacts*. Hence, the energy of your lamp doesn’t heat up the atmosphere but powers our high-performance Gallium chips.
Gold is resistant to corrosion
We estimate that about 70% of flashlight failures can be attributed to corrosion damage caused by battery acid or battery gas. Gold doesn’t corrode (rust) and has a high grade of chemical resistance. Therefore, our contacts are hard gold-plated*. That means considerable expenditure, but it’s worthwhile because we create quality that lasts for decades.
