How to choose the right LED Bulb
Also known as the 'cap', the base is the part of the bulb that connects to the light fitting. Light bulb bases are designated codes, such as GU10, which can be used to quickly identify the type of bulb needed. Alternatively, you can make a visual comparison using our handy chart below.
The brightness of a bulb is measured in Lumens (lm), not watts. To make things easy we also provide an equivalent wattage which tells customers the equivalent incandescent wattage of each LED we sell.
3. Beam Angle
Beam angles, measured in degrees, describe the angle at which the lights is emitted from a bulb. Bulbs with a narrow angle are very directional and product a 'spot' of light. Bulbs with a wide angle are better for general illumination.
4. Colour Temperature
Colour temperature refers to the perceived warmth or coldness of the light. Bulbs with a high colour temperature emit a bright, white light, while bulbs with a low colour temperature have a much softer, yellow light.
