What is a Gu10 Led bulb?
GU10 lamps used to be widely used as halogen lamps. But times have changed - and partly thanks to the great rise of LED lamps - GU10 lamps are now also available as LED lamps.
GU10 led spotlights have many different advantages over the classic and outdated halogen bulbs. Namely, they are much more energy-efficient, more efficient and also have a longer lifespan. Moreover, GU10 LED lamps are also available in different colours, such as plain white, cooler white, warmer colours and daylight. So you can easily change the atmosphere in your rooms using these bulbs. Really great!
This type of LED spotlights is often used in recessed spots and downlights. They can serve as accent lighting, but also as illumination of objects such as paintings, furniture or other showpieces in your interior.
Which GU10 LED bulb should I choose?
Depending on the role your LED spotlight has to fulfil, you can choose the most suitable lamp. To help you on your way, below we have compiled a short overview of the most important elements you need to take into account.
Luminous intensity (expressed in lumens): The luminosity of a lamp determines how brightly it will shine. Depending on where your lamp will hang, you can choose an LED lamp with a higher or lower brightness.
The colour of the light: Again, the location of your lamp will determine which colour you take best. Do you want to create an atmospheric room using your LED spotlight? Then choose a warmer and more pleasant colour. If you are looking for a cooler and cooler colour, choose a white lamp.
The beam angle of the lamp: This angle determines how wide the beam is that your LED spotlight will emit. You often need a thin beam angle when you want to create specific and focused lighting. In turn, a wider beam angle is more suitable for lighting larger rooms or areas.
The quality of the lamps: As with many other products, the same applies to lamps: cheap is expensive... So it is better to choose a slightly more expensive lamp from a reliable manufacturer. That way you can be sure that your lamp will last a long time and that you can count on a guarantee in case of any problems. At ET48 - to save you from annoying problems - we therefore only sell high-quality bulbs.
What gu10 LED bulbs do you have in your range?
ET48's product range includes a number of different GU10 LED spotlights. These bulbs all have different properties. This way, you can choose the LED spotlight that completely suits your needs. One thing they do have in common: their excellent quality and reliability!
Are GU10 LED bulbs dimmable?
Yes, GU10 LED spotlights are dimmable. However, when you buy your LED spotlight, you should look carefully at the product specifications of the lamp. It is possible that the spot you want to buy does not have a dimming function.
Not every GU10 LED spotlight has a dimming function, but most of them do, because it is a real added value! With the help of a dimming function, you can determine at any time how hard your lamp should shine. So you create cosy and atmospheric rooms, as well as cooler and brighter meeting rooms with one and the same lamp. Handy, right?
Do I need a separate GU10 Fitting?
No, fortunately you don't need a separate fitting for a GU10 lamp. When replacing a GU10 lamp, you can simply use the fitting of your previous GU10 lamp.
In some cases, however, you do need a new fitting. For instance, when you decide to replace a lamp of another type with a GU10 lamp. For instance, the fitting of an E27 or a GU5.3/MR16 (plug-in fitting) is not compatible with the fitting of a GU10 lamp. But no worries! At ET48, we also sell a fitting for GU10 bulbs.
