About as bad or worse than "LED's"
NY times is a usual screw-up; makes for bad examples.
The construction "LEDs" stands for the plural of LED; one speaking of
light belonging to an LED may be incorrect in the attribution, but in
that case "LED's light" would be correct form.
There is a growing problem of using the aprostrophe in (what seems to
be always) the incorrect form.
