GU5.3 MR16 Halogen Spotlight Bulbs
The GU5.3 MR16 spot is a low voltage 12v halogen lamp. It is used mainly in recessed and ceiling spotlights. They can also be found in some reading lights and outdoor spots as well.
They are available in a variety of different wattages ranging from 20w, 35w and 50w. They can also be found in different beam angles ranging from 10 degrees all the way to 50 degrees.
They are very similar in appearance to the GU10 mains voltage lamp, except these have 2 pins on the end that simply push into the lamp holder. Halogen lamps get very hot so always be careful when changing them over to new ones. The Lighting Superstore offer these as singles or as packs of ten on special deals. The GU5.3 halogen lamp is available as a LED version for much lower energy consumption.
