60 SMD Glass Covered - 4w GU10 LED Bulb
This GU10 LED bulb features 60 individual high quality 5050 SMD LEDs that emit a light output of 320 lumens. They're intelligently designed to considerably reduce energy consumption by up to 90% and are available in both Warm and Cool white options. When ordering these particular lamps you will see they are only available in a dimmable option. This means they are fully compatible with both dimmable and non-dimmable applications. Using only 4w of power these are by far our most energy efficient bulbs available and equivalent in brightness to a 50 watt bulb.
These GU10 bulbs feature a massive 120-degree beam angle; designed to output the widest beam angle available of any SMD bulb on the market today. These bulbs will install into any GU10 socket with an input voltage of 240V and is designed for any domestic, commercial or retail installations. They use only 10% of the energy when compared to the older style bulbs, thereby offering significant savings that consumers simply cannot ignore.
Lasting up to 50,000 hours compared to a halogen lamp which last 2000 hours, LED bulbs usually pay for themselves within six months of installation. Homeowners and businesses can now go years without the hassle of having to change bulbs. These LED equivalents feature shock and vibration resistant technology, there is no filament to ever burnout so they run considerably cooler than standard filament bulbs.
• 60 individual high quality SMD chips, 120 degree beam angle
• Cost Effective Energy Savings within 6 months of installation
• Spiral alloy housing - great for dispersing heat
• 30-year Average Lifespan (6-year Lifespan when left on 24/7)
• Consume 10% of the energy used by traditional light bulbs

• LED bulbs do not contain a filament that can easily be damaged
• Environmentally Friendly - LED bulbs contain no Glass or Mercury.
Example of LED lamp energy savings
Lamp colour ( Kelvins )
The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS light bulb in your house would be 2,700 kelvins
which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 5,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting
the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm colour wavelength helps to soften the tone of the area
and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and ideal for colourful flower beds and rockery areas especially with wooden bark
and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 5,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used against a light background such as
white walls or to accentuate grey blueish foliage in shrubs and small trees. When you buy a new, energy efficient
bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.

Light output ( Lumen's )
The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumen's and the more lumen's
the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumen's work in conjunction with kelvins and
watts should not be taken in isolation of each other, for example if you had a very
warm white lamp at 2,700 kelvins and it produced 300 lumen's and you then had another
lamp which was a cool white 6,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumen's the cooler
lamp colour would always appear brighter to the naked eye than the warmer one this
is due to the receptors in the eye that react better to a white light spectrum. Another
factor on how bright a light may appear is contrast so if you shine a white 5,000
kelvin light on to a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp on to a white wall the
warmer lamp would appear brighter due to the contrast of the material it is focused
on. So when choosing a lamp always take in to account the area you want to illuminate
and think about Kelvins ( colour ), Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast ( colour of
area ) The more lumen's produced per watt the more energy efficient the lamp will
