2. Short start time , HPS lamps need 5 - 10 miniutes to get normal light level , and LED street light could get full light in 1 second .
3. Long life time , LED street light could have 70,000 hours life while HPS only have 3000 - 5000 hours , that means in same period , have to replace the HPS lamps 10 times , the product cost and labor cost would be quite different .
4. High Ra , although Ra is not so important for street lighting , but higher Ra could improve lighting effect . HPS Ra is 20 while LED street light could have Ra above 70
5. Smart control , the LED street light could equiped with nema base , smart lora zigbee controller , photocell , light sensor ,surge protector , make it smart control or dimming .
6. Beam angle could be design more suitable for street light , and HPS lamps is much harder to control the beam angle
