LED-Man has that Friday feeling and is going to set you up for the weekend with his latest edition of Big Questions. Q: IfI change an apartment that has MR11 halogens with new gu10 fittings and LED bulbsand new Dimmers do I need transformers? A: No. The GU10 is a mains voltage bulbso doesn't require a transformer. Q: What is the brightest bulbyou have? A: In B22 or E27 fittings, we have now got a standard shape 11.5 watt lamp, which is the equivalent to a 75 watt incandescent bulb:
B22 11.6W - 75W Replacement
E27 - 11.6W - 75W Replacement
Q: I'm looking for dimmable G9 lamps. Can you help? A: I'm afraid at the moment we only supply non-dimmable LED G9s in 3 and 5 watt versions. Please keep checking the site. Q: Can I use a triproof light in an industrial kitchen? A: yes as long as the temperature around the LED triproof light doesn't exceed40°C. Q: What is an LED Filament bulb? One of the objections to LED bulbs from some people is that they don't resemble traditional bulbs enough and people don't like change. Our LED Filament bulbs are styled to look like a vintage incandescent bulb with a glass surround enclosing a light element. This makes them perfect for light fittings with exposed bulbs such as chandeliers and also the vintage warehouse look.

A: Lumens are a measure of the total amount of visible light from a lamp/bulb or light source. The higher the lumen rating, the brighter the lamp will appear. Please note that the lumen figures vary for cool, warm and daylight so be careful when selecting your options. The full information can be found in the product description under "see technical information" If you’d like more info on this see our post What Are lumens here >
