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

The LED evolution

This MR16 is part of a new collection of bulbs that have taken LEDs to the next level.

So what’s new?

  • Each bulb comes with a halogen wattage equivalent
  • All bulbs are fully ErP and CE compliant
  • Prices are lower than ever to give you unbeatable value

Replace 35-40W halogen and save hundreds

Replace inefficient 35/40W MR16 halogen bulbs with this 5W energy saving alternative and benefit from up to 90% in savings, while still enjoying the same level of brightness. This will lead to a single bulb saving you up to £113 on your bill over its lifetime.

It packs up to 400 lumens of light and comes with an extra-narrow 36 degree beam angle that creates a focused spotlight effect.

Long lasting

Designed to last 25,000 hours, which is 20-times-longer than halogen equivalents, you’ll get approximately 15 years of service based on average use.

Pick your colour

Choose from 3 different shades of white light; Cool White, Warm White and Daylight, which is perfect for planning light schemes and controlling the ambience in your home.

Please remember:

These 12v LED lights need to run off a Driver/Transformer. Your existing transformer may not be LED compatible. Please visit our transformer section if you require new transformers.

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 - Cool White

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.

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.

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.

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.

Colour Accuracy (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

These lamps have proved unreliable on our 12V system. Also they are slightly pink in colour, whereas all the mains-powered LED lamps from LED HUT give a warm slightly yellow light, akin to that from incandescent lamps.

You now do not stock the wide angle these spotlight are not as good the spread of light is to narrow for my bathroom, it creates dim areas which give a patchy look in a large area. Please bring back wide angle as well as spotlight and I will not need to look for another supplier as I have always ordered from you.
