Sylvania GU5.3 LED bulbs are also known as MR16 bulbs. These light sources, also called spots, are used both as accent- or as generic lighting. The beam angle of 36 degrees is suitable for both and makes this spot very easy to apply. Replace your current, conventional lighting by LED lighting and start saving energy! Because of the same fitting, replacement is very easy. But you will need to check your light color and wattage, to retain the same light effect as your current bulb when buying your Sylvania GU5.3 LED bulb.
The colour code is a combination of the colour rendering index (CRI) and the colour temperature (K). The first number refers to the CRI (1 = very poor colour rendering, 9 = maximum accuracy). The second and third numbers refer to the colour temperature. For example, a light with a colour code of 830 has very good colour rendering and produces a warm white light.
Beam Angle (degree)
The beam angle indicates the spread of the light in degrees. Small beam angles are preferred for accent lighting, while larger beam angles are for general lighting purposes.
Colour temperature (Kelvin)
The colour temperature refers to the colour produced by a light. It's measured in Kelvin (K) and ranges from warm white (1700K - 3000K) to daylight white (6500K). Neutral white (3100K - 5000K) is mainly used for general lighting applications.
