A Misconception About GU10 LED
Jul 11 2019
With the arrival of a nascent technology, such as LED (Light Emitting Diode) Lighting, there are always going to be a few misconceptions floating around. That is why it is important to truthfully and honestly meet these misconceptions face on. One of the most prevalent relates to the brightness of GU10 LED. A lot of customers who have grown familiar with incandescent and halogen light bulbs see the low wattage on GU10 LED and automatically assume that these light bulbs are not very bright. However, they couldn't be further from the truth on this matter.
GU10 LED is actually quite bright. In some cases they might actually exceed the luminosity of conventional bulbs. The important thing to remember is not to look at the wattage of the GU10 LED itself. Wattage is a technical term for the power consumption of an electronic device and not a reflection of its luminosity. There are three ways to determine the brightness of a bulb before you buy.
The first is to check the equivalent wattage of the GU10 LED you intend to buy. Manufacturers and retailers will most often provide an equivalent wattage which is designed as a guideline to help consumers compare the bulbs they already have with the GU10 LEDs they intend to buy. However, these can only be taken as a guideline and the accuracy and sincerity of this lies entirely with the retailer.
An alternative to equivalent wattage is to check the lumens. Lumens may be a fairly new concept to customers more familiar with dealing in wattages. However, they are very straightforward. Lumens are a measurement of visible light which is calculated using a lumen reader. The higher the lumen output the brighter the bulb. You may need to do a little research to ascertain exactly how bright some lumen measurements are. The lumen output of a bulb should be expressed clearly in the product description or specifications and can vary depending on the colour temperature of the bulb.
The final option is to actually arrange to see the GU10 LED's in person. This is the safest and most confident method of determining their brightness. One option is to visit the show room of your retailer. If this is not viable for whatever reason, most companies offer a limited return day period, usually 14 to 28 days, to allow their customers to 'try out' bulbs before they buy. Consult your retailer for more information.
