The MR16 uses over five times less energy than conventional halogen lamps with the same lumen output, providing customers with huge energy savings. In addition, the lamp is also dimmable, contains no mercury or lead and lasts up to 20 times longer than a halogen bulb. It emits up to 70 percent less UV rays and uses up to 80 percent less energy compared to halogen lamps.

Ideal for a variety of applications that require directional light, such as track lighting, recessed ceiling lights, desk lamps and pendant fixtures, the new MR16 is available in three color temperatures, 2700K, 3000K and 4000K, and two beam angles, 25 and 35 degrees. The lamp is also specially designed to fit most gimbal rings, which means it can be used in most existing fixtures.
