Ushio is claiming that they have made the first truly usable LED MR-16 replacement product – the Synergy LED MR-16. The Synergy product claims an 80% savings over halogen MR-16s, a 50,000 hour life – as well as being fully dimmable, cool, UV and IR free. Those are some pretty big claims! There are several beam angles to choose – basically from 12° to 50°, all with a 4W consumption. Color temperatures for the series run between 3100 and 6500°K.
Gosh – can you imagine MR-16’s that you could actually handle without leaving an MR-16 burn tattoo on whatever touches the lamp? It kinda makes me want to have a fleet of MR-16 Mini-Strips loaded with these LED MR-16 lamps for testing! Check out the Ushio product page for the LED MR-16 replacement lamp.
