Well made good value wall or ceiling light
on 18 December 2013
These are well made and good value lights that take GU10 bulbs. A similar shrouded version is about £2 more. Having previously bought two of these I have just ordered another two.
They are much better if used with LED, rather than halogen, bulbs, as the exposed bulb is not then blisteringly hot to touch and lasts a lot longer. With LEDs there is a greater choice of light colour temperature and beam width. As the bulb is not shrouded, it makes it much easier to change the bulb, although with LED bulbs this should be a very infrequent requirement.
Compared with down-lights, this light can be swivelled in two direction to point where it is needed, however it might be better not to swivel it about too much.
The connecting lead has to come in from the back, so if you want to take a lead out through the side, it will require a slot or hole to be made in the side, or require mounting on a base that provides the side exit.
I find these are very good for fixing under shelves, or cabinets, or as a wall light to provide a reading light, which can then be pointed to where it is wanted.
