Title: Configurable multi-socket with thermal relief for light emitting diodes

Abstract: A method and a system are disclosed for using multiple LEDs for lighting applications using a single electrical source, while reducing thermal density to keep the LEDs at a cool operating temperature. In various embodiments, an LED multi-socket may be used to power multiple LEDs. The multi-socket may include two or more socket arms to effectively distribute light and dissipate heat. In some embodiments, the multi-socket is configurable to allow deployment of additional socket arms and corresponding LEDs to adjust maximum light output. In some embodiments, the multi-socket arms are repositionable to allow flexible positioning of LEDs to improve light distribution and to avoid thermal build-up.
