LED 3 Watt Twist and Lock Spotlight lamps are finally starting to deliver on all their promise with these lamps from Crompton being the best value offering we have seen. If you are looking for a cost effective way to get into LED lights then these are an excellent choice.
LEDs are at the cutting edge of low energy lighting technology. They not only save you money on your energy bill but their amazingly long lifespan will mean you don’t have to think about replacing them for years and years. They also start instantly with no warm up time.
Crompton have introduced several fantastic options for the GU10 (twist and lock) downlight fitting.
This 3 watt option is a good quality budget lamp and is currently at an amazing price! We have tested them and find them to be a good equivalent to a 35watt standard filament GU10 twist and lock lamp. The beam angle is very good too at an amazing 100°(another failing of cheap LED lamps)
They are available in Warm White (closest to the filament lamp colour) Cool White (a whiter crisper light) and Daylight
They are not dimmable
With a 25,000 hour life these really are fit and forget lamps. Traditional filament versions of these lamps usually last around only 1000 hours and use a lot more energy – they are also notoriously sensitive to voltage spikes which can also shorten their life. All you need to do to change is remove the filament one and fit one of these – there really is no more to it than that!
LED lamps contain no mercury and do not flicker so are great if you don’t like fluorescent low energy bulbs. They also produce no UV so will not fade paintings etc. Another lesser known advantage to LED bulbs is that they don’t attract insects either!
Please don’t confuse these lamps with cheap unbranded LEDs. Unbranded LEDs are notorious for not lasting, not performing according to their specification and most importantly some of them have even been found to be dangerous!
