MR16 or GU5.3 LED light bulbs provide very low energy lighting with extremely long life, typically 25000 to 50000 hours. In addition they have considerable environmental benefits because the very low electricity consumption means that CO2 emissions are minimal during electricity generation and the long life means that there is a reduction in landfill.
All our LED MR16 bulbs are direct replacement for any Halogen 12 volt MR16 / GU5.3 bulb, they work with AC or DC existing Halogen transformers with no changes needed to the wiring or lighting units. There are 2 additional benefits firstly, due to the low power consumption, less load is put on the transformers reducing the probability of transformer failure, and secondly, due to the very low heat output compared to standard halogen bulbs, fire risk is significantly reduced.
Some LED MR16 bulbs require a special driver for the bulb to operate for the expected lifetime, say 20000. Our LED MR16 bulbs do not need a specialist driver and will operate in line with the rated lifetime from the majority of standard 12 volt transformer.
LED bulbs are far less fragile than CFL's or halogen bulbs and can withstand knocks and bangs to a much greater extent. In addition they are more resilient to rapid temperature changes and to repeated switching on and off.
The exceptional energy saving and environmental characteristics of the LED light bulb make the LED bulb the ultimate in energy saving.
