Application

MR16 led bulbs are often used instead of compact fluorescent lamps or standard incandescent bulbs, including residential lighting and retail lighting.

MR16 lamp was originally designed for slide projectors .

They are suitable for a variety of applications, requiring the directional lighting from low to moderate-intensity, such as track lighting, recessed ceiling lights, table lamps , chandeliers , lamps, landscape lighting, retail display lighting and bicycle headlights.

Origin of name

Performance

MR16 is a naming number, and “MR” represent multiple reflector. 16 is the length of front diameter, which is the number of unit length of multiples, the provisions of 8 units of 1 inch. Taking the MR16 as an example, when the front diameter is 16 units long, 2 inches in diameter before that 2×2.54cm = 5.08cm, diameter of about 5 cm long.

MR16 Lamp

Glass lamp cup , features long lifetime, reliable point, and bright halogen bulb and cheap price!.Its fatal flaw includes large power consumption and great heat lamp!

There cartridge Friends (flashlight enthusiast) converted it into a flashlight because of cheap price, high brightness, good floodlight, the result is good!

Currently the well-known manufacturers of light cup are GE common NVC, Philips, Lighting ever.
