A GU10 LED lamp from Integral to match halogen

To satisfy the demands of designers and customers who remain misty-eyed about halogen lighting, Integral LED has designed a retrofit GU10 LED lamp that it says matches the aesthetic qualities of halogen. The 2700 and 4000K Classic Glow lamps replace standard 50W halogen lamps but use only 6.8W. The output is 380 lumens, more than the lamp it is designed to replace. It’s the cunning reflector and lens design that recreates the sparkle of the energy-guzzling halogen. A ‘fly’s eye’ filter in front of the COB light source projects light forward at high intensity but protects onlookers from glare.
