Compact spike - 12v Rustic brown IP66
The E4171 Elipta Compact Spike Spotlight is an adjustable 12v spike spotlight typically used for spotlighting focal points, up lighting small trees with 5w 36° LED GU10 lamp and shrub border lighting using a 5w 60° LED GU10 lamp. With a 3w LED lamp they can be used to uplight pergola columns or to accent light small light coloured focal points. Fitting 5w LED lamps makes these outdoor spotlights ideal for uplighting newly planted borders or individual feature plants. Rustic Brown powder-coated aluminium is a traditional recessive colour choice for garden settings. It has a flush lens which sheds water and leaf litter and is easy to clean.
The LED bulb options are primarily cool white and warm white colour temperatures.

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.
