5w E27 Candle LED 2700k 480 Lumens. 260 degree beam angle Dimmable

This excellent value E27 (Edison Screw Cap) LED candle style light bulb is in a warm white colour temperature 2700k and is dimmable. Our product code is AFFCAN106. It is mains voltage 220 - 240v

It only uses 5w and with the clear cover lens gives out 480 lumens which is up to a high powered 50w halogen lamp equivalent and has a good 260 degree beam angle to give an even spread of light.

The bulbs have a three year warranty with a life expentancy of 25,000 hours.

They are 36mm in diameter and 100mm in length. The product weight is 49g

The energy rating is A+.

The material is thermal plastic with an operational temperature of -20 degree to +40 degree celsius.

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 ( 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 6,000 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 onto a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp onto 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 into 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, for example you can have a 25w candle lamp that produces 170 lumens or a more energy efficient 18w candle lamp that produces 180 lumens so even though the wattage is smaller the lumens are greater which makes it use less electricity. That's what makes LED lights so energy effective as they can produce 700 lumens from a 5w lamp.
