- Jan 11, 2020-

GU10 LED spotlights are commonly used in residential and commercial settings for directional lighting. GU10 LED light bulbs provide precise center beam intensity and beam control. 


GU10 LED light bulbs consume 50% less power than GU10 Halogen bulbs and can function up to 20,000 hours. Compared to the 2,000 to 6,000 hour lifetime of a GU10 Halogen bulb, the installation of GU10 LED light bulbs eliminate the need for constant bulb replacement and require less maintenance over time.


How to Replace a GU10 Halogen Bulb with LED


You must first identify the wattage of the bulb and the rating of the transformer that you are currently using. To determine how many and what wattage bulbs you should install, check the transformer rating. It should tell you the maximum and minimum wattage permitted.


It is important to keep in mind that some power supplies require a minimum load of 20 or 30 watts. LED light bulbs generally have extremely low wattage, like 3 watts each. Therefore, consider replacing your current power supply with one designed for LED lighting. Before installing GU10 LED light bulbs into your GU10 light fixture, make sure the power supply can properly handle the correct load of LED light bulbs.
