Lumens

Since LED light bulbs are designed to use less energy than halogen spots, wattage is not a reliable way to gauge how bright the bulb is. Brightness is measured in Lumens.

With LED spotlights there is more to consider than just a direct Lumen comparison with the halogen equivalent. The superior light quality given off by LEDs and much lower bulb degradation rate over time must also be taken into account. This is why the stated Lumen output for an LED spotlight is often less than that quoted for a halogen spot bulb it replaces.

Beam Angle

The beam angle is how wide the beam is spread. If you have a very narrow beam angle your light will be projected like a handheld torch whereas if you have a wide beam angle it will be much softer and spread like a traditional bulb. Wide beam angle are best for living areas such as living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms where you are looking for a softer light and narrow beam angles for targeting specific areas or for decoration.

Power Consumption (W)

The wattage is the value given to the energy consumed by the light bulb itself. So, a 50-watt halogen spotlight bulb will use 50 watts of power. If you have 6 x 50-watt halogen spots in your kitchen then you will be using 300 watts of power. If you were using replacement LED lights at 4 watts each you would be using 24 watts of power, resulting in huge energy savings.

Input Power

This is a measurement of the volts required to operate the bulb. The standard for the UK is 240 volts. This means that you can plug these directly into existing fittings without changing any of the electrics.

Height (mm)

The size determines the diameter and the length of the bulb. In most cases the bulbs are a retro-fit, which means they are a direct replacement for their halogen equivalent.

Width (mm)

The size determines the diameter and the length of the bulb. In most cases the bulbs are a retro-fit, which means they are a direct replacement for their halogen equivalent.

Depth (mm)

The size determines the diameter and the length of the bulb. In most cases the bulbs are a retro-fit, which means they are a direct replacement for their halogen equivalent.

Replacement

This details what this LED bulb is a replacement for in terms of standard halogen bulb wattage. This allows you to easily make a comparison when replacing your existing halogen bulb, to ensure you get a similar light quality and brightness from your new LED bulb

Average Life in Hrs

Manufacturers will give lifetime claims in multiples of 1000 hours. One thousand hours is equivalent to about 6-months use when the bulb is on for 4 hours per day. A traditional halogen spotlight bulb is expected to last about one year (2000 hours) where as an LED will last between 30,000 and 50,000 hours - that’s between 15 and 25 years! Switching to LEDs means you may never have to change your light bulbs again.

Fitting type

This is the fitting of the bulb, described by a letter/number code. You can find out what your fitting is by looking on the base of the bulb you are replacing or the packaging of your existing bulb.

Dimmable (Option)

Dimmable LED bulbs are only compatible with a dedicated "Trailing Edge" dimmer switch that reduces the current flow. Your bulbs will not work effectively if used with the conventional "Leading Edge" dimmer switches that operate with a higher current flow.

When ordering dimmable LEDs please ensure you have an LED-compatible Dimmer Switch.

Protection Rating

The IP rating is an international classification system for the sealing effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment against the intrusion into the equipment of foreign bodies (i.e. tools, dust, fingers) and moisture. IP65 for example, is dust tight and water resistant.

Colour Rendering Index (CRI)

Measured on a scale from 0 to 100 percent, the colour rendering index (CRI) indicates a bulb's ability to make reds, greens, and all other shades look just the way they should. Simply put, the higher the CRI, the more accurate an object's colour would look under the light source.

Warranty

We're so confident in the quality of our bulbs that we offer an extended 5 Year warranty

Nice and shiny - I am sure that it will be fine - just as soon as I have the time to split the pair of switches into two separate ones - so I can fit the dimmer for the room lights and a single switch for the porch. Note for others - the chrome dimmer switch is a little larger than a normal switch so you won't manage to use a standard dual single type patress box. Have to have separate boxes and cut in with a gap between. I am sure that there is a market for a combined pair with one as a dimmer and the other a standard switch.

The dimmer does not dim the GU10 LED replacements to the same low level as with the incandescent bulbs used previously and on first switch on the light comes on brightly and then dims down to the setting. This is used in the kitchen. Note dimmer has a recommended 10 watt minimum load.

Good quality dimmer...works well on my 6 led down lights in the bathroom... My only gripe is that the dimmers lowest setting is not as dim as it was with my halogen lights... But that is possibly just a limitation of less...

I was not aware that the dimmer delayed the LED bulbs coming to full brightness - with a standard switch the LED bulbs are at full brightness immediately they are turned on. I don't mind the little delay, but was not aware that the Dimmer switch would cause this.
