Naturally, this affects the maximum lumen output, which can vary from 315 lumens to 860 lumens.
The variation isn’t just limited to power and output – the very composition of the bulbs varies too. Our 9W bulb for example uses a COB LED – short for chip-on-board. This produces a very narrow beam angle of just 60o, ideal for task lighting.
Our best seller on the other hand – the Dimmable 6W GU10 – uses SMDs (surface mounted diodes), which are essentially a series of smaller diodes grouped together. This results in a much wider beam angle of 120o, which is better for general purpose illumination.
All of the spotlights in this range are available in different colour temperatures too. All can be bought in either warm white (3000K) or cool white (6000K), however our Dimmable 6W COB is also available in day light (4000K). Our video below can tell you more about colour temperatures.
Conventional dimmer switches that are already installed in many homes across the country use leading edge dimmers, which can make the bulbs to flicker, and can also cause long term damage to the bulb itself.
Any damage sustained as a result of using a leading edge dimmer with a dimmable LED will not be covered under warranty. Rather than risk breaking your new spotlights, you’re better off having a look through our selection of switches.
As mentioned earlier, please bear in mind that any damage caused to the bulb as a result of using leading edge dimmers will not be covered by the warranty, so please ensure that you have the right dimmer switch before using these bulbs.
