How did we calculate these results?

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

Built to last decades

A recommend replacement for 50/60W traditional lights, you can save £188.02 per GU10-5W bulb over their 25000 hour lifespan.

How much could you save?

Swapping traditional 50W lights with these 5W GU10 bulbs is one of the fastest ways to knock money off your bulbs.

For example, if you swap 10 50W halogens to 10 of these LEDs and ran them for 6 hours a day, you’d save £164.25 over the year. In total, you could see savings of £1,880 over the bulb’s 11.4 year lifetime.

(calculations are based on the current UK rate of 0.15p kHw. Prices may vary based on current UK rate)

Replace your old bulbs easily

Very easily. These bulbs have the exact same fitting and bases as traditional GU10 lights, which means you simply just plug, play and start saving money.

Extra-bright

With up to 460 lumens, they’re one of the brightest GU10s around and a solid replacement for 50/60W halogen bulbs.

Choose from a range of colours

Warm White, which is a popular choice with our customers, casts a cosy, subtle glow that makes for a relaxing atmosphere, which is perfect for when the family’s together.

Cool White is a refreshing alternative, coming with a lighter beam commonly used in bathrooms to help kick-start your day.

Daylight is a real all-rounder. Use it anywhere you like to bring natural light indoors.

Dimmable bulbs:

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

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

5 Watt gu10's used to replace a large number of halogen bulbs throughout the house. Have been putting this off for a while because of the cost involved. However Ledhut prices are very competitive and as a result I went ahead with the order. Order placement was quick and easy and delivery was within 48hrs. I would recommend this site to others.

Have used these in both my kitchen and bathroom. They give a brilliant clean white light, which I personally prefer over the warm white option; they appear to yellow for me. However these would be good in a bedroom or living room area. I find the cool white compliments the under kitchen cabin lighting nicely to create a bright working space. Great product which I certainly recommend.

By far the best GU10 halogen replacement bulbs I've experienced. Only cautionary note is they seem to be ~1mm larger in diameter than a standard GU10 and have struggled to fit them in recessed light fittings. Will have a go at removing the fitting first and putting the bulk in from the rear.
