Forming part of the successful Philips Master Value range of low energy LED lamps is the new 12V 5.5 watt MR16. Providing a low energy alternative to a 35 watt halogen it is dimmable as standard and designed to operate with existing low voltage transformers. Philips Master Value products offer high quality reliability at an affordable price.
Although it's marketed as a 35 watt alternative this very latest glass casing version consumes less energy and produces more light with a 450 to 490 lumen output. It is brighter than many other LEDs that claim to be a 50 watt alternative. It is the same physical size as a halogen meaning it will fit inside existing downlights. This is a new generation of LED products that are ideal for the home, offering superb value for money.
- Wattage: 5.5 watt
- Halogen Equivalent: 35 watt
- Voltage: Low voltage 12V requires an additional transformer. Compatible with most 230V > 12V AC transformers but we recommend using the Varilight YT range.
- Cap type: GU5.3
- Colour temperatures and lumens:
Extra warm white 2700K = 450lms
Warm white 3000K = 460lms
Cool white 4000K = 490lms
- Start up time: Instant
- Energy efficiency rating: A+
- Dimming: For loading purposes it should be classed as 35W. For example a 105W transformer will power 3 of these lamps or use one 50W or 60W transformer per light.
- Beam angles: 36 degrees
- Colour rendering index: 80 CRI
- Life expectancy: 25,000 hours
- Manufacturer: Philips Lighting
- Guarantee: 3 years
Specifications Beam AngleSpecifications
Every light source from an LED to a simple wax candle has a beam angle. A beam angle is a measurement of how the light is distributed. GU10 LEDs and recessed downlights have a fairly narrow beam of around 40 degrees, anything within 5 degrees is classed as a medium beam.
A wax candle or traditional light bulb would have a beam angle of 360 degrees as the light shines all the way around but is less intense.
Combing brighter downlights with wider 60 degree beams allows you to space them out further, reducing the total amount of lights needed.

36 Degrees Brand Philips Lighting CRI 80 Ra Cap Type MR16 (GU5.3) Colour TemperatureSpecifications
Colour temperature is a measurement of appearance. Measured in Kelvins, the lower the rating, the warmer the light appears. Choosing the right temperature can have a dramatic effect on a room.
2700K - Extra Warm White
Similar to a traditional incandescent light bulb or halogen. It has a more orange and warmer tone, with a ‘soft white’ appearance. Ideal for living rooms.
3000K - Warm White
Clearer, but still quite warm. This is the ‘new norm’ for general lighting and is the most popular option. If you’re unsure I’d recommend trying this one.
4000K - Cool White
Clearer, whiter and crisp; used in commercial locations including supermarkets. Cool white appears brighter than warm white as the LED is covered in less phosphor. It can make a room appear cold and clinical but used correctly (white walls etc) it can make a room appear cleaner and modern.
