This GLS shape LED bulb is a modern, futuristic way to replace old light bulbs throughout your home or garden and reduce your energy bills even further. Top quality Epistar LEDs are used within the bulb, which have a substantial lumen output of 80 lumens per watt and can last for up to 50,000 hours, which realistically is equivalent to years of domestic use. A variety of wattages, colour temperatures and cap types are also available, as well as 12v versions if required.

The colour temperature of a lamp is a measurement in degrees Kelvin (K) to determine the “warmth” or “coldness” of the light that it produces. Lamps with a low colour temperature produce what is described as a “warm white” light – often described as “yellow” or even “orange in very low colour temperatures such as old fashioned street lights. The higher the colour temperature, the cooler the light appears, eventually reaching what is known as a “daylight white” at approximately 6000K. Daylight White bulbs tend to have a blue tinge rather than yellow.
Lumens Output Vs. Wattage Equivalents
Lumens Output is the measurement of how bright a lamp actually appears once illuminated. Often when replacing light bulbs, an equivalent wattage is requested, however the Lumen Output can vary between different brands of bulbs with exactly the same wattage. The higher the lumens output, the brighter the bulb. Below is a simple chart to demonstarte what lumen output you would expect for certain wattages. Therefore, if replacing a 25W standard / halogen bulb with an equivalent LED, simply look for an LED lamp which has virtually the same lumen output (230-270 lumens) for the closest match. Equivalents are often estimated, therefore comparing the lumen output is the best and more accurate way to replace bulbs with low energy equivalents.
