LUX VERDICT: ★★★

We’re fans of the Bridgelux Helieon LED module as it has a great balance of price and performance, and has allowed a swathe of OEM manufacturers to enter the market. Best of all, you can change it like a lightbulb. This downlight has good colour rendering and efficacy for the price.

Lux magazine doesn’t just recommend products – we take ‘em apart and put ‘em back together. And then, just to make sure, we have them independently tested in the UK’s most rigorous lighting labs.
