We’ve taken the current average UK electricity rate of 15p kWh, and the closest standard LED replacement bulb to determine the financial benefits of changing to LED. Calculations based on a 6 hours per day usage. Savings vary depending on electricity supplier.

Description

Details

Our lowest energy spotlight

The GU10 3W is our lowest energy consuming bulb. It offers 210 lumens of brightness which is approximately the same as a 40W traditional spotlight. It’s perfect if you have a lot of spotlights in one room and don’t want the brightness to be overwhelming.

Save money the green way

Significantly reduce your energy bills by switching to these GU10 spotlights. They cut consumption by up to 90% and can last 20 times longer than standard bulbs. And it’ll consume just 3W of energy instead of 40W like a halogen equivalent.

Quickly replace your old bulbs

Thanks to their standard size and fit, switching to LEDs from standard halogen lights is a doddle, they’ll just fit into your existing fittings. They are built to last 11.4 years too, so you won’t have to keep replacing low-quality blown bulbs.

A range of lights for every room

Cool White is ideal for your bathroom and kitchen, while Warm White creates a softer, more traditional tone for your living room, bedroom and anywhere you like to put your feet up and chill.

Brightness you can control

This 3W GU10 bulb comes with a dimmable version, so you can set the perfect mood in every room.

Please ensure you check with the dimmer’s manufacturer for compatibility before purchase.

Improve your focus

With a 45 degree beam angle, this bulb gives you a classic, narrow spotlight effect. As well as being great for decorative highlighting of decor, it'll also help you focus when you're cooking or studying.

Please remember

Dimmable Gu10 3W spotlights are only compatible with dedicated Trailing Edge dimmer switches that reduce the current flow. Your bulbs will not work with standard leading edge dimmer switches that operate with a high current flow.

Beam Distance

This is a measurement of how far away the beam of the torch will usefully light an object.

Colour

This is the colour of the casing.

Material

This is to describe what material the product has been crafted with e.g. Aluminium

Modes

Modern torches and battery powered lights now come with various modes as standard. Typical modes are a minimum to maximum light output staged over two/three modes. A strobing mode and and SOS mode are also quite common.

Reflector

The reflector is the most important part of a torch.  It gathers the light from the LED Chip and focuses it into a beam.  

There are two main types of reflector surface - they can be "mirror-like" or textured "orange peel". The orange peel type give a smoother change from the hotspot - the brightest part of the beam.  It also evens out slight imperfections in production.  Orange peel is by far the most popular kind of reflector.

Chip Model

The chip used within the device is typically manufactured for a purpose e.g. torch, bulb etc. Here we describe the manufacturer of the chip and any special characteristics.

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.

CE and RoHS Certified

We only use the best component parts in all our lighting solutions, working with factories that are all ROHS and CE approved.  We have high quality controls in place all bulbs are age tested and go through at least 2 quality checks before they are released.

Size (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.

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

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.

Wattage

The wattage is the value given to the amount of power 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.

Replacement For

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.

Base

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.

Voltage

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.

LED Chips (p/m)

There are 2 options to think about when choosing strip light. The size of the LED chips and the amount of chips per metre. Our LED Strip comes in 60 LED's per metre or 120 LED's per metre. This indicates how many LED's are attached to the strip which powers the LED's. The chip size comes in 2 types, large (5050) and small (3528). The bigger the chip, the more light it gives out.

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.

Warranty

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

Used in Kitchen ceiling instead of halogen bulbs. The light is very cool but works where I've got it. It is much less expensive to run than halogen but you need far more bulbs to create the same amount of light because of the way the light is distributed.

The 3W directional GU10 replaced a wide-angle 5W bulb (also from LedHut) which had proved too bright and too wide-angled for my mother's reading lamp--the light was spilling across the room and causing me visual problems. This new 3W bulb is perfect for the job! Gave away the 5W to a very impressed pub landlord as we're now fully LED-lit in our home.

Used the bulbs in my hallway. Nice wide beam so effect is not too spotlighty. I have directed some at paintings on the wall and they create a nice subtle highlighting effect without making the rest of that part of the hall dark. If anything I think I ordered a too-high a wattage for the task, and am considering adding a dimmer switch to create a more cosy effect.
