R50 LED Spot bulb (2.5w)
This is product code 2890 manufactured by tp24.
This low energy reflector bulb, will save up to 80% of your energy usage compared with a standard incandescent bulb.
It's long life, and low running temperature make it suitable for many applications, including commercial and retail where the lamps are on for long periods.
These lamps have an average life of 20,000 hours, and to back this up the manufacturer (tp24) also extends their standard guarantee of 12 months to 2 years as long as you register the lamps with them and as long as they have been used correctly. Which brings us nicely on to this:
These lamps are not suitable for use in dimmer circuits. This might also include some electronic 'soft start' switches. Please ensure that you use these lamps with a regular on/off switch only.
Colour variation of LED bulbs manufactured by tp24
tp24 have recently (January 2012) contacted us to explain that the colour temperature of their LED lamps might vary between different batches. This means that some lamps may be a wamer (more yellow) or cooler (more white/blue) white than others, and any replacements whether purchased or provided free of charge under their two year guarantee may vary in colour from any previous bulb.
tp24 told us that: “we as the manufacturer will only replace the lamps due to failure and will not replace lamps due to a variance in the colour the LED lamps are sold at a very competitive price and are suitable for domestic use but due to our manufacturing process we will not guarantee that the exact colour will be replicated in every batch manufactured and supplied and as such we will under no circumstances replace lamps because of a perceived colour variance in the batches. Also please be aware that LED lamps over time will vary in colour as do any lamps.
We do of course make every endeavour to ensure that there is as little variance as possible in all batches manufactured.”
