6w GU10 COB LED lamp, 60 Degree beam angle, Cool White 4500k, 540 Lumens, Dimmable




This is one of our most popular COB spotlights offering massive output (equivalent to a 50-60w). COB stands for Chip-on-Board which is a newer technology than individual SMD chips. This superior COB LED solution and purity aluminium radiator material helps the luminous efficacy high to 85Lm/W. It is designed in excellent thermal management in conjoint structure by forging and stamping technology which should insure the longevity of your lamps for years to come.

Other advantages over older styles lamps is the increased CRI (Colour rendering index) values. These lamps have been designed with the warmer 2700K COB's to replicate a true halogen lamp, offering higher CRI values than any lamp we have ever tested.

Under normal circumstances, so long as the minimum load is exceeded, dimming mains voltage LED lamps is not an issue.

This is one of the brightest 6W LED GU10 bulbs on the market.


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. Coloured filters are good to use with the LED bulbs too especially in winter using green filters give the appearance the trees are still in leaf.




      
                  



Light output ( Lumens )

The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumens and the more lumens the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumens 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 lumens and you then had another lamp which was a cool white 5,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumens 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 ),  Lumens ( brightness) and contrast  ( colour of area )  The more lumens produced per watt the more energy efficient the lamp will be. That's what makes LED lights so energy effective as they can produce around 500 - 600 lumens from a 5w lamp.
