LED stands for – Light Emitting Diode (LED)
LEDs are so efficient you can save up to 90% energy compared to Halogen or Incandescent bulbs
The average domestic lighting bill in the UK is around £300, if you were to swap the bulbs from halogen to LEDs you could cut your lighting costs by 90% so it could be as much as £270 saving just for switching to LEDs
LEDs have a much longer lifespan than standard halogens bulbs. LED bulbs can last up to 30000 hours, that is nearly ten years of constant use at 8 hours per day.
(K) Kelvin - Color temperature is a way to describe the light appearance provided by a light bulb. It is measured in degrees of Kelvin (K) on a scale from 1,000 to 10,000 sees chart below;
The colour temperature of LEDs are suited to different environments, this is all up to personal preference yet the chart below indicates the look and feel of the light for you to choose.
All our LED bulbs are designed to fit directly into your old fitting from Halogen or Incandescent unless stated.
SMD stands for Surface Mounted Device. This is a type of LED lighting that is quite common in our range.
COB stands for Chips On Board. This is a new generation of LED lighting, multiple LED chips are packaged together forming a single light module. When a current is passed through the LED chips is looks like a lighting panel.
DOB stands for Driver On Board – This is a new generation of LED lighting that is designed to be driven directly off of AC 110V without converters.
Lumen is what we measure the brightness of bulbs, the more Lumens per bulb the brighter the bulb
