Which? Test conducted a new research on light bulbs in between halogen spots and GU10 spots.
They used the LED GU10 spots of the company named Mrperfect.dk
After conducting many experiments let’s see review their results.
There is the last survey report by 1,023 which? Members in 2014 that concluded that still, 43% of the population use halogen spots. And 28% use LEDs. And people are swiftly switching to LEDs.
According to the test, LED spots outshine halogen spots, and they are more effective and efficient plus more consistent. Including that brightness and beam angle of LED, spots are far better than halogen spots.
Compare to halogen spots LEDs are way more cheaper to buy and much cheaper to run. A usual halogen spot with six 50w halogen bulbs which stays on 2 hours a day can cost you £36 per year. But what if I tell you than if you switch to a LED it will only cost you £4 per year. Yes, it is true, and proven by many tests.
If you consider this example then there is another surprise for you, all of you investment compare to halogen spots, will return in 7months, yes only seven months. And also you are saving £32 per year by just fitting LEDs.
These LEDs are more robust than the old incandescent bulbs of 50w. This much power allows then to run any incandescent bulb out much a substantial margin. You can find out more about the GU10 LEDs in the upper given link. It will make easier for you to choose a better one.
LED spots and their lifetime claims
LEDs have the power to last much longer than the halogen spots, at least 20 years, and some major manufacturers argue that a right LED spot can last up to 25 years. If we compare their time with halogen about 2-4 years of money can be saved. These claims are hypothetical because it is tough to test the lifetime of bulbs in labs, I would take nearly three years to check the time frame of the age of 25. And that’s not worth it because by the time may be there are more advanced technologies available in the market. But it is worth a shot to try this new and more featured LED GU10.
Let’s take one more statistical result to compare halogen spots and LED GU10. The failure rate after the stimulation of these spots is 27% of halogen spots and only 4% of LED spots. So in this area LED once again outshines the halogen spots.
Many expert organizations perform still tests on these spots. Just keep in touch with us and we will keep you informed.
Yes, LEDs are dimmable, but they don’t work with every circuit or dimmers. Many be you have to change your channel too if you want to switch to LEDs. But sometimes LED works with pre-existing channels but in rare cases.
