240v GU10 Halogen Spotlight Bulbs
GU10 Halogen Spotlight Bulbs
The GU10 is the most widely used halogen spot bulb available. It is mains voltage so no transformers are required. It has two lugs at the bottom that simply twist into the lamp holder in a similar way as traditional bayonet cap bulbs fit.
There are 4 different wattages in the halogen GU10, 50w, 35w, 20w and in some rare instances the larger version of the GU10 spotlight bulb is available in a 75w version. They produce a focused pool of light (Normally with a 36 degree beam width) directly forwards of the bulb, and help create an atmospheric setting.
Most of the spots that are designed for GU10 bulbs are adjustable, so it is very easy to adjust them for that perfect setting. Halogen GU10s are also fully dimmable so you can set your desired light level and without the need for any high tech, specialist dimmer switches. The colour temperature produced is normally around 2700k but the use of LED GU10 bulbs opens up the possibility for many more colour temperature options.
You will find an average lifetime of around 2500 - 3000 hours depending on the brand and as with all halogen lamps, they do produce a noticeable amount of heat when they've been running for a while, so it's always advisable to be very careful when handling them and always allow them to cool fully before touching them. For the ultimate in light output to energy consumption ratio we also offer a vast range of the latest and greatest LED versions, which we have carefully selected to ensure low energy consumption, high light output and very long lifespans.
