Amazingly Efficient and Bright to Boot., 7 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I use Halogen light bulbs in a few appliances.
They are expensive to run and a lot of the output is in heat.
Great lighting but heavy on the electric.
When offered the AURAGLOW 5w COB LED GU10 Light Bulb, Warm White, 50w EQV - RETROFIT to test I jumped at the chance.
The first thing to consider is are they as bright as you'd expect?
The simple answer is Yes.
I placed the bulb in a light array of three and the difference in the quality of light was apparent from the off. It is superior.
The light is 50 per cent better.
(A BIG WARNING THOUGH- When changing the bulbs really let the old cool down for a while and then leave them alone for double the cooling period you'd expect.
They get Super Hot and keep the heat)
BUT the real killer here is the power rating.
These bulbs consume just 5 watts and yet give out 50. That's ten times the output for the wattage.
The saving potential in electricity is massive.
The bulbs are rated A+ and you can't get much higher than that.
They are dimmable which could be the clincher to buy them but I must admit I have not used this feature myself so I suggest you read other reviewers' comments on this feature.
1.Better Light- looks a whole lot better than the other halogen.
2. Better power consumption A+ rating even.
4.Price not bad compared to other similar less performance bulbs.
What this space.
