Introducing a comprehensive range of G9 LED Bulbs that are a straight swap replacement for their old halogen counterparts, available in three different colour temperatures warm white, cool white and daylight these lamps save you money and give great colour rendition.Cool White Dimmable Daylight Warm White
Yes it is a straight swap. Switching to LED bulbs gives you the option of different colour temperatures including Warm White (yellow/orange warm light to replicate halogen light bulbs), Cool White (crisp white light that is ideal for use in modern kitchens/bathrooms) or Daylight (a bluey white light that replicates natural daylight) G9 light bulbs are often fitted in chandeliers so changing to G9 LED bulbs gives you the option of a different look and feel to your room.
There is no technical reason why you cant mix different G9 LED Bulbs form various manufacturers however there can sometimes be a slight difference in colour temperature even if you select the same colour for example warm white. The reason for this is that each manufacturer when it buys LEDs will buy the same Bin number LED to keep consistency of colour temperature in its range of products. A Bin number indicates the G9 LED Bulbs brightness and colour and there may be a slight variation between manufacturers Bin numbers and therefore a slight difference in the appearance of the same colour temperature.
The brightest G9 Bulb is an 11 watt 1000 lumen lamp that is approximately equivalent to 100 watts in halogen, the benefits of these G9 LED Light Bulbs include a long lamp life and reduced running costs compared with its halogen counterpart. For more help with understanding lumens give our video below a look:
A popular choice for bathrooms, bedrooms or to illuminate small areas around a house or office such as inside cupboards or desks, G9 LED bulbs are great for decorative lighting or accent lighting as a direct, bright beam doesn't distract focus from the feature. G9 LED bulbs can be used for a wide variety of applications and is available in a range of lumens from 180-600 lm, colours including Very Warm White, Warm White, Cool White and Daylight and wattages from 2-6 Watts. In addition, G9 LED bulbs are also a direct retrofit replacement to the existing G9 halogen bulbs.
On average, G9 LED Bulbs have a lamp life between 25,000 to 40,000 hours. However, this will differ from each manufacturer, check the technical specifications to ensure the expected lamp life meets your expectations. Ensure install your G9 LED bulb as per manufacturer's guidelines otherwise you may decrease the lifespan of your bulb i.e exposing the bulb to extreme heat, vibrations and fitting the bulb in an enclosed area.
Unlike some other bulbs that require the use of transformers or LED drivers to function, G9 LED Bulbs are designed for use with mains voltage and does not require a transformer.
G9 LED bulbs are available in dimmable and non-dimmable versions. If you require a dimmable version, ensure you install the correct dimmer switch that is compatible with LED lamps. We recommend the Varilight V-Pro dimmer range, which is suitable for 90% of dimmable applications.
LED G9 bulbs do generate heat, however, not in the same way as traditional incandescent and halogen bulbs do. Ensure that the LED G9 bulb is installed correctly and not in an confined space as this can affect the running temperatures.
