LUX RECOMMENDS

Best value

ENGINE: 9 Golden Dragon LEDs
RATED POWER: 13.5W
RATED OUTPUT: 680 lumens
COLOUR TEMPERATURE: 3000K
BEAM ANGLE: 36 degrees
PRICE: Around £100
LUX VERDICT: ★★★

You don’t get much for £100 these days but for this price Osram’s LEDVance gives a great balance of power, efficacy and colour temperature for the price tag. The warm 3000K colour temperature makes it a good alternative to low voltage tungsten halogen while using a quarter of the power.

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.
