This GU10 LED bulb features 60 individual high quality 5050 SMD LEDs that emit a light output of 380Lm. They're intelligently designed to considerably reduce energy consumption by up to 90% and are available in both Warm and Cool white options. When ordering these particular lamps you will see they are only available in a dimmable option. This means they are fully compatible with both dimmable and non-dimmable applications. Using only 4.5 watts of power these are by far our most energy efficient bulbs available and equivalent in brightness to a 50 watt bulb.
These GU10 bulbs feature a massive 120-degree beam angle; designed to output the widest beam angle available of any SMD bulb on the market today. These bulbs will install into any GU10 socket with an input voltage of 240V and is designed for any domestic, commercial or retail installations. They use only 10% of the energy when compared to the older style bulbs, thereby offering significant savings that consumers simply cannot ignore.
Lasting 50,000 hours compared to a halogen lamp which last 2000 hours, LED bulbs usually pay for themselves within six months of installation. Homeowners and businesses can now go years without the hassle of having to change bulbs. These LED equivalents feature shock and vibration resistant technology, there is no filament to ever burnout so they run considerably cooler than standard filament bulbs.
• 60 individual high quality SMD chips, 120 degree beam angle

• Environmentally Friendly - LED bulbs contain no Glass or Mercury.
PLEASE NOTE: Dimming LED Lamps?
Non-dimmable LED lamps cannot be dimmed. Should you fit a dimmer to non-dimmable LED’s then damage to the dimmer, lamps or both will occur.
Mains voltage dimmable LED light bulbs can be dimmed using an ordinary resistive dimmer. LED lamps are an attractive proposition as they consume very low wattage's and are very energy efficient. This can cause problems when choosing the correct dimmer.
If you have a few LED lamps to dim, then the total wattage will not be enough to load the dimmer. For example, four 5w LED lamps in a small room will only total 20w whilst the minimum load on a 250w dimmer is 25w. This means that the dimmer will simply not work. In these circumstances a low load dimmer rated at 5 – 50w would be required.
Under normal circumstances, so long as the minimum load is exceeded, dimming mains voltage LED lamps is not an issue so long as the minimum load is observed.
Dimming low voltage LED lamps is also easily achieved by either dimming the driver on the primary (mains) side or on the secondary (low voltage) side. Of the two, primary side dimming is the more desirable and the easiest to achieve. The LED driver would need to be of a constant current type and dimmable.
Dimming most domestic light fittings is relatively simple but you must ensure that you select the correct dimming module for the task.
